Good place to start but not stay

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsNice colleagues, free coffee/tea/sodas, free breakfast on Thursdays, subsidized cafeteria, nice team outings and end of year celebration events.

ConsVery corporate in terms of slow processes, red tape, and politics. If you have new innovative ideas, they might be shot down because management is a lot older and can feel threatened. Also, since McAfee has reached it peak, employees have become lazy. Do not expect to get work done on Fridays, since the building is practically empty with people "working from home."

Advice to Senior ManagementOnly hire the best, most intelligent, and emotionally stable for Manager, Director, VP positions. I witnessed a director who was very hostile in meetings, by attacking employees ideas and belittling their efforts. Managers need LEADERSHIP training, as I witnessed many managers be two-faced with their direct reports. Unacceptable.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
