I have been working at McAfee

Pros

Flexibility in schedule, decent compensation, opportunities if you are willing to relocate to Plano, Texas. Overall, not a bad place if your position is safe.

Cons

No 401K match for some time, M&A seem to happen without any integration into McAfee and too much focus on making revenue goals instead of improving the processes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Engage your managers to their employees not just on a yearly review basis. Offer more clear paths for advancement within the company. Allow for remote work to save overhead costs. Cut some of the fat and sandbaggers who don't contribute any value.

    I worked at McAfee

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
