Former Employee - Software Development Engineer in Santa Clara, CA

I worked at McAfee full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

-If you are lucky, you will get into right group which will have great minds and culture.
-Lots of work with scope to learn

Cons

-If you are not lucky(most likely), you will end up in a team filled with people with no ambition but self centered thoughts offering no help
-EXTREMELY poor immigration policies, STAY AWAY if you want McAfee to file GreenCard. HR pushes everyone to EB3 to make your life miserable
-No growth for 5-8 years, then you will get 1 grade upgrade based how well you agreed to all things manager and lead wanted you to do

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you want talents to stay, respect them, give scope to grow. Clean out idiots who stop team's progress and expedite green card process because lots of people at McAfee are unhappy with their jobs because of all these reasons.

    I have been working at McAfee full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Fairly relaxed environment for engineers with stocked pantries.
    Innovation wise, they let you do what you want, but on your own time. People are open to new POCs and suggestions. You can work independently and management do not micro manage.

    Cons

    Below average pay range for engineers in the valley.
    Senior management are resistant to change. Thankfully, new architects and PMs recognize issues of change resistance.
    A few of the engineers here can't really work independently, thus constant hand holding becomes part of your job scope.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace change. Be radical about it. Try unproven methods.
