    I have been working at McAfee

    Pros

    benefits and payment. Its a relaxed work place. They pay for drinks, and bring donuts on friday. The bonus estructure is very good. They always keep us inform of the changes. You can really feel that you can go and talk to the CEO and He will make sure that he will listen to you.

    Cons

    I have not been able to find any reasons to feel bad about working at McAfee. Have you ever wake up and wanted to go to work? That's how I feel at McAfee. The only bad side about working at McAfee is that at the end of the day you have to go home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay more attention to your employees. Try to keep them, too many good people leaving because they can't offer anything additonal.

    Pros

    Excellent culture and professional people, superior flex--benefits, open communication from senior management.

    Cons

    Retrenchments in the name of cost-cutting, which not only affects those who are forced to leave, but also de-motivates the others who stay back in the organization

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please be mindful of cost-cutting measures

    I have been working at McAfee full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    solid company with constant growth and extremely professional and dedicated management and executive team - well positioned in the market thanks to strong partnerships - results driven, rewards great performers, transparent culture and decision making

    Cons

    requires a lot of dedication and personal investment in order to achieve company results and personal/professional growth, which may result in poor work/life balance - minimal salary increases once you are in

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    should reward better the best performers and the people who have been with McAfee for a long time, or they will have to look elsewhere for significant salary increases
