    I have been working at McAfee full-time

    Pros

    1. The products are best in the market.
    2. Talented pool of people around to work with

    Cons

    Where do I begin with.. The company seems to be directionless these days.. Management is only concerned on how to push quarter after quarter.. some times appears whether it has any vision?

    I think overall the motivation of the employees dipped. and then aggressive cost cutting..

    May be thats what happen when the company is given with almost impossible target by a parent company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Guys, you have great bunch of people.. please offer something better than MBO goals to motivate them with

    Pros

    Work life balance - you know what that means :) Little work and less pay.
    Achieve your MBO goals, earn your bonus and be happy.

    Cons

    Difficult to motivate yourself when everyone around you is so laid back. There is no motivation for anyone to achieve anything other than their MBO goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is not just about making policies and setting goals. Unless employees are passionate about what they do and take pride in their work, engagement levels will always be low.

    Pros

    Work Culture is Amazing and have seen very less politics in my team but again this might differ from team to team.
    Flexi-timing and Work from home option is offered which is very useful for those having young families.
    Work Life Balance is also well maintained.
    Management is spending on team bonding activities

    Cons

    Biggest drawback is that current Salaries are almost 20% less compared to what batch-mates are earning at other places. Doesn't make sense to continue for tenured employees especially after recent hikes given

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Market correction badly needed on salary front.

    Doesn't Recommend
