    Pros

    The people are great. The company has definitely hired and acquired the best and the brightest. The pay is very good in most positions and the bonus program is also very nice.

    Cons

    There are far too many acquisitions that are not integrated in the best way. The employees are not looked at as assets, but line items on a spreadsheet. No thought seems to be put into what peoples' strengths are and if there are redundencies, who the best employee would be... only where they came from.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the morale of the employees. Don't just assume that everyone is happy because the turnover rate is low. Don't forget we are in a down economy and when things turn around, you might be surprised to see how many people leave.

  2. Great company for experience - don't expect to stay

    Pros

    McAfee is a leader in their industry, so it's easy to be motivated by their corporate mission. The spirit of the company is infectious and effectively communicated from the leadership.

    Cons

    While it's a great company with a great mission, it's hard to move up within the company unless you leave and come back.

    Advice to Management

    Great job keeping up the motivation and spreading the corporate mission, but to really keep turnover down, start promoting from within and develop your existing talent.
