I worked at McAfee

Pros

Mcafee has very good products and a great set of internal Support Engineers. Mcafee has a great benefits package. The employees there are a close knit family. Senior Management very competent but dealing with huge changes due to upper Executive changes that were made end of 07. Did I say they have great benefits?

Cons

Employees not given carrer path for advancement. They don't look within for promotions. Knee Jerk Changes with no regards to how it impacts employees mentally nor monetarily. The systems at Mcafee are lacking in making sure employees are paid correctly. Finance unaccountable for communicating wages expected and when people will get paid.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do a better job taking care of current employees

    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.
