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 Management

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

    Pros

    Relatively stable, easy place to work

    Cons

    Slow to change, slow to respond to market dynamics Obvious "good ole boy" system in effect If you're not in sales, you're going no where fast.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the way and allow individual contributors to make decisions. Adjust compensation plans to be more equitable across business functions. Product management and marketing and just as critical as sales YET sales is comped at an extraordinarily high level.
