I have been working at McAfee full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good pay and benefits. It's nice that they offered extravagant president clubs, but the people that deserve to go don't always get to. They have a weird, call it arbitrary way of deciding who goes and who doesn't.

Cons

Lots of work. So much so that other departments also show this stress, in way of giving you pushback and doing their own job. Consider the workload before making a long term commitment.

Advice to Management

Management is just that, count the heads and count the dials. Not much in way of leadership, helping you grow as a sales rep.

    Pros

    Nice, friendly, helpful co-workers. Nothing else really positive about working here. Good car parking spaces, clean environment, nice cafe

    Cons

    Terrible management. Were put into a small room, cramped with 20 people, no windows and desks shoulder-to-shoulder length size.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees better, change some of your management.

    I worked at McAfee full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Engineers are motivated to do the right thing, protect the customers. Pleasant working environment, nice people.

    Cons

    Lack of coordination across the products results in customers paying for a lot of separate features that don't work together and actually provide the promised protection. Focus on short-term profitability makes it impossible to invest in major R&D and deep technology innovation that will help to protect against current or future threats.

    Advice to Management

    Bite the bullet and invest in innovation. Right now you're not a security company, you're a commodity product company that builds a security product. To actually provide security in this fast-changing age, you have to change your culture to accept more risk.
