I have been working at McAfee

Pros

OK salary. Fine benefits, nice co-workers. Can probably be one of shining spots on your resume.

Cons

Tablets & Apple eating away revenue. Win8 will be a nightmare for 3rd party antivirus software vendors like McAfee. Senior Mgmt are clueless and only care about their own jobs, not the company. Clueless & dumb people are being promoted. Annual Christmas layoffs are very discouraging.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your people.

    I worked at McAfee full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Trying to be a best in class company. Employees are mostly pleasant to interact with.

    Cons

    Politics are the flavor of the day. If you do not go along to get along you are not long for the company. Not cutting edge too much like a Microsoft, IBM, Intel type of company. Late to the party.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just understand that why you all are at or near the top of your professions you do not know it all and when the economy turns around, if ever, you will see an exodus of talent due to politics, some lack of new ideas. Engineering has some but the rest is just typical fix the cog mentality. Intel is a mixed bag but in any event good luck and please fix the issue with your AV where it think McAfee on a vm session is a competing product and will not install. Basic.
