I worked at McAfee full-time (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.

    I have been working at McAfee full-time

    Pros

    Pay is excellent, treats strong players very well, good at getting rid of non-performers, low-drama

    Cons

    Product management lacks real leadership and shows little expertise in managing a portfolio and driving business results. Good company to work for and has matured quite a bit in the last 5 years.
