Pros

McAfee Plano is located near the Dallas North Tollway and the 121 toll.
It is business casual attire. Cafe downstairs for quick lunches.

Cons

Vacation-
You are granted vacation days, but good luck trying to take them. Instead, they give you mandatory days off and make you use that as your vacation. That would be workable if you knew what days they would be, BUT you don't. It completely depends on how bad their financials look and how desperate they are to cut expenses to meet Wall Streets expectations. So go out tonight and have a great time; take another shot while bellied up at the bar, because you might just find out you are off tomorrow.

Work Load-
If you are considering McAfee, you might also consider joining the Armed Forces; at least one will help pay for your college. They will both take you away from your family more than anyone would prefer. If you like working 50+ hour weeks while your manager leaves at 4:59pm everyday then you will love McAfee. If you like literally sweating at a keyboard just to get the job complete while your co-workers share pictures of their Farmville... you get the point.

Work-Life Balance-
The answer is no.

Overall; it was a horrible experience. I would not recommend this company to anyone looking for a job.

Advice to Management

Just quit! Let them higher someone who cares about people instead of bonuses and bending numbers in order to stay bonus eligible. Give the people their 401k and maybe offer a match since smaller companies can do it so should you. I am now at a much smaller company with much better benefits, much better pay, we actually get to take vacation days, and nearly everyone loves their job. Oh, and thanks for laying me off! I've never been happier!!
