    I have been working at McAfee

    Pros

    1. Great work-life balance. People never trouble you to stay late or load you with too much work.
    2. If you are staying in Koramangala or Domlur, you can come in shuttles. (No shuttles from other places.)
    3. Great culture to work in. Fun and entertainment.
    4. Good opportunities to move within different teams (if your track record in McAfee is good.)
    5. Free snacks, gym, wi-fi
    6. Good place for Managers. Your pay may not be great but very good place to settle in life. No work tension.
    7. Good for short term (1 - 5 yrs) and bad for long term (5 yrs) especially in early career. Same is not applicable for managers here. For managers, it is good for long term too.
    8. McAfee Labs and Network BU are great places to work in McAfee.
    9. At least 3 outings in a year for all teams.
    10. Great place to enrich your skill-set. Online books and resources available within McAfee to learn new technologies.

    Cons

    1. Pay is decent but not equal to that of other players in the market. So, all good quality engineers never stay with McAfee.
    2. Managers wait for you to quit and then give you hike and promotions.
    3. No working from home option for below lead roles.
    4. No laptops for roles below leads.
    5. Many managers are just puppet of their Senior managers. They don't have a say in any decisions. (But there are certain BUs which has very good managers and senior managers.)
    6. If you are in a shared project (between India and US), you won't get good quality work.
    7. Lot of people who don't work and claim others work stay long in McAfee. Managers are idiotic enough to believe them. If you join such a team either quit or move to a different team.
    8. Very few good engineers stay with McAfee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your engineers. If you are not going to pay as much as other players in the market, you won't get quality resources. If you don't get quality engineers you will end up with low quality security solutions. Don't wait for an engineer to quit McAfee and offer him hike and promotion. First eliminate all those engineers who claim work done by others as theirs. These people screw up team dynamics. (Because if you have a happy team, productivity will be higher.) If there is no time for doing research during office time, innovative ideas will be sparse. More important advice **Think about the quality of the products and not just on the release dates**.

    I have been working at McAfee

    Pros

    The team I am currently on is a great team, and my current manager and supervisor are good too. Everyone is very friendly here.

    Cons

    Even though promises were made to this contractor, business decisions can change quickly and those promises can be broken just as quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please know what it is you want, and keep your promises. There are a lot of turf wars and politics as well as a Dev environment that moves too slow.
