I have been working at McAfee full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Some of the best reasons to work at McAfee are the people, strong product mix for sales revenue and product intregration for a stable foundation.

Cons

Some of the downside issues of working at McAfee is the difficulty for internal transfers and inconsistant communications with management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If McAfee Management set a strong example along with a composed communication, rather than 'do as I say, not as I do', the message of constant change and improvement would be improved.

    I have been working at McAfee as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Very 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 ManagementAdvice

    Only 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.
