    I worked at McAfee full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Work is good
    -More opportunity for self-learning
    -competitive work
    -working on latest industry trends and technology

    Cons

    -Extremely pathetic work culture
    -Always extended working hours
    -Most of the work starts at evening hours in India when US people come online
    -Indian managers will always push employees to work ASAP and respond latenight
    -Mangers give work only to those who work and no balance in team at all
    -Variable calculation is disgusting, even if you have given 100% there are chances they may pay you 50% as company's performance frequently goes down
    -You will hardly get any salary hike
    -India leadership management is just inefficient;he is heading simply because he is the eldest employee in MIC bangalore who lacks how to talk to employees
    -Once you get into company witha salary say X thats it.it never grows.
    -Managers never motivate..nor say any encouraging word to employees.absolutely zero motivation
    -Management adopts use and throw policy for employees
    -In 2008 McAfee strength was 7000 and in 2012 its approx 7100.So, you can imagine the growth. Frequent firing of employees and high attrition rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Change India management completely.
    -Give salary at par the product industry
    -Encourage and motivate employees
    -Stop believing in use and throw concept of employees.
    -value employees as your assets.
    -Provide growth path for employees
    -Train your managers about technology and management.

    Structure/hierarchy
    Product management
    Not an open environment
    Too much hierarchy
    Not enough involvement of subordinates

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be a better plan for how the products are launched, what the long-term goals are and how to increase brand awareness needs to be increased. It would be great to have marketing really work "together" versus as their own micro businesses and really understand the market versus reacting.
