Do not go to McAfee if you are looking to make a career. The company is just a stepping stone to other opportunities.

    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.
