Pros

People are professional Pay/benefits are good Overall a good place to work

Cons

With big compaines come big challenges - especially communication between global sites Many positions are sent to countries where the pay is lower, and the quality of work is sometimes overlooked.

Advice to Management

Overall they are leading the company in a good direction. I'm sure the McAfee shareholders would agree. While sending jobs to developing countries does save money just keep in mind that often in life you get what you pay for, for both business and personal.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    - Decent pay compared to other tech companies in the area. - Freedom to propose solutions - Friendly work environment.

    Cons

    - We haven't had a raise, 100% bonus or 401k matching in several years even though the company has had "record profits" quarter after quarter. Upper management still get their bonuses. - Most positions in IT have been or are getting out sourced to India. - Most project time lines are unrealistic and not met. - Combined PTO and sick days and no comp time.

    Advice to Management

    - Focus more on employees and less on cutting the budget. - Stop outsourcing. All it is doing is lowering quality and increasing time lines. - Bring in stronger technical leadership.
