    I worked at McAfee full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Interesting problems.
    Good pay.
    Great benefits.
    Good people

    Cons

    Over-metricized, everything is a number - you, too!
    Leadership is spotty, product management is abysmal.
    Takes forever to get anything done.
    Very top-down driven.
    Periodic layoffs based on arbitrary numbers pushed down from Intel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because something is made a web-app doesn't mean it's an improvement over the old process.
    Let process improvement flow from the bottom up.
    Make decisions more quickly, because it doesn't appear that taking much time is letting you make better ones.

    Good work, challenges but less than competitive salary.
