Great company, outdated and poor management practices

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at McAfee full-time for less than a year

ProsGlobal and well recognized brand
Free coffee/tea/drinks everyday and breakfast on Thursdays
Nice cafeteria, office space, and cubicles
Big budget to create with
CEO's are wonderful, personable, and easy to talk to

ConsManagement is very old school, the complete opposite of a flat organization
A lot of politics, red tape, and the company doesn't feel like it's innovating
You will have meetings about meetings, and projects and decisions happen very slowly
Difficult to work cross-functionally

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more open to the ideas of those below you. Managers should be required to take leadership courses. Stay up to date with emerging trends. Need better information flow across departments.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
