Pros

Pay is excellent. Benefits are comparable with other industries. Job security is par with other industries. Very smart people. Big company that thinks it is still small. Lots of capital in the bank, good future vision through recent acquisitions. Products are top notch. Revenue growth is consistent. Previous leadership has left so forced attrition has ceased. Overall a very decent company to work for.

Cons

Tends to be aggressive on work vs life balance. There's a lot to do and not enough people and time to do it. Minor inconveniences like no Admin access on laptops. What do you expect, this is a security company...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management is aggressively addressing and fixing processes.

    Pros

    The free drinks. The level of knowledge in the research side of the organization is bar none. The company is profitable and future projections are very strong.

    Cons

    The research side could use work in integrating the various companies that McAfee buys. Also, it seems like Product Management has a clear idea of where they are going and are constantly changing directions. These changes have a big impact and usually lead to wasted cycles in the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more involved in your organization. Support more company functions.

    Current Employee - Senior Product Manager in San Jose, CA

    Pros

    Broad access to a number of technologies that can be used. If you're in sales you can make some serious dough. Flexible work schedule with remote working being acceptable for many roles. Slackers are quick to be eliminated, as most folks pull their weight and more.

    Cons

    Rather flat organization with limited advancement opportunity for technically oriented folks that want to stay technical. You have the option of either going into sales or going somewhere else unless a director role becomes available and you happen to be the best candidate for the role in the location where it is being offered. There are a lot of "Senior" this or thats, several directors, and it seems like a few too many VPs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't ignore advancement opportunities for your technical teams.
