I have been working at McAfee full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Great employees who are very smart. Flexibility. Fighting cyber crime is a noble cause. Pay and Benefits are pretty good.

Cons

No accountability for behaviors of Sr Leadership...including president of company who bullies others. Leaders date employees, hire and promote their friends. Business is not growing and no one is doing anything about it. HR will get rid of people who try to shed light on the bad. HR leaders are just as bad.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop being afraid to do the right thing.

    I have been working at McAfee full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Immediate colleagues are great and well as immediate managers. Benefits are pretty standard (2 weeks for new employees, 401k match, etc...). There is opportunity to move around within the company if you're interested in different positions that are open. A decent place to start a career.

    Cons

    Lack of communication within the company. A lot of "left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing" and very little coordination which can make projects difficult. Very frequent to sudden changes in policy and projects with very little forewarning.

    Company politics and a very "silo'd" feeling within the organization. There is also a lack of employee appreciate events/awards and not very competitive raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate better with employees and make them feel valuable through more reward programs.
    Offer competitive pay for current employees to keep good talent.
    Trim down upper management and number of VPs to better avoid internal company politics.
