Sleazy snakepit; but I was there before Intel took over, so maybe it's better now

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

    Pros

    Good work life balance
    Some nice perks and programs

    Cons

    Hypocritical messages about employee empowerment (talk a lot but don't walk the talk).
    Underlying sexism in culture - not overt but it's absolutely there
    Can't get anything done
    Way too much top down decision making

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want the culture and results you say you do, behavior needs to change starting at the top. Employees are smarter than you think

    I have been working at McAfee as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    First Thursday free beer, Fee Muffins on Friday, casual work environment , that's about it.

    Cons

    In 6 months they fires 3 people and two more just walk out in the Labs division alone. McAfee's Virus detection rates are very low, they are loosing money, there clients are leaving Not a good organization to work for. Plus Intel owns them and there is talk of them folding them in and big laying offs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are too may managers and none of them know anything about enterprise IT operations. You would think a company like McAfee would have world class IT, Not so much

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
