    Former Employee - Security Engineer

    I worked at McAfee

    Pros

    Pay was ok, Got to take the Foundstone classes for free. Good coworkers. Looked good on resume

    Cons

    Middle and upper management had no direction and seemed in a fog most of the time. Forced to beta test their own products on their internal production network. Developers/product folks had no path to IT and in some cases don't even use their own products internally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Headcount reductions and change of focus give no direction to the teams. Get rid of the quarterly bonus plans as everyone only works on what they would get paid on and no long term goals/projects

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Great people around, Good Place to work, Good work Life Balance.
    Great technologies, Almost the benchmark when it comes to security these days, now that symantec is almost absent

    Cons

    Growth is very slow,
    Sometimes the communication between teams is lesser than expected

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should give importance and better compensation to QA Engineers when compared to Development Engineers
