Former Employee - Summer Intern in New York, NY

I worked at McAfee as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Innovative software and convenient midtown Manhattan office

Cons

-Terrible coordination with customers whose sites they worked on - project did not make any progress throughout the summer I interned
-Poor communication with interns re above - I had to call my supervisor at 7:30 AM to find out if we had work that day

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat interns like people, not a freely accessible corps of labor.

    I have been working at McAfee full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good opportunities to learn, lot of technologies being implemented. Good place to learn to increase market value and get out, but not that great if you want to stick there.

    Cons

    Too much mgmt change, not good quality hiring in middle mgmt. Snr mgmt also sucks, no vision, whoever has they are changed too frequently. just too much unnecessary and unreasonable change. Lot of wasted talent, and lot of deadweight as well. Regular frustrations. No planning, and too much US based IT personnel(80%), doing not so high-quality work. Too many failed and sucky projects and investments, especially in IT support tools and their implementations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good mgrs are let go and replaced with mediocre low-skill mgmt who seem good the first 6months and an year later realize they have to be replaced as well. No vision, lost direction.

    Pros

    Great benefits and good work/life balance, cafe food is getting exciting, really great instructors at the gym

    Cons

    Roadmap planning is disastrous. We are so deadline driven that sometimes we push a product out so fast that the quality suffers. We are also a very engineering driven company that makes it hard for visions to come true.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Middle management can be blockers.
