Pros

Promotes work-life balance - Remote work is often encouraged for FTEs.

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

    Pros

    There is some work life balance but that really depends on the team and dept you are in. The cafe has decent food, they have seemed to attract SOME very smart people. Their benefits are competitive, the workspace nice and great parking!

    Cons

    Serious lack of growth within the company, relatively no opportunity for upward mobility which can wreak havoc on one's career. The leadership team has serious issues and overall is very weak and not aligned, some recent changes may change that but nothing yet. Some old bad management ways are still in effect and overall morale is low. Compensation package overall is NOT competitive with the valley but even that seems to change depending on what dept you are in and who your supervisor is. If I could rate a 2.5 I would

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some major change needs to happen to prevent the wheels from falling off the cart, and this is not happening fast enough. Execs need to agree on the direction and focus of the company

    I worked at McAfee full-time

    Pros

    Like all jobs, your happiness will depend on your team.

    - Most people are friendly and nice.
    - Process here is pretty straight forward.
    - Depending on your organizational leadership, some care more about people well-being than others.

    Cons

    - Lack of direction from overall organization.
    - Fragmented strategies.
    - Different players were out to get each other.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to lead your team and grasp on what the business needs. To service other teams you have to push your players and not make excuses.
