    McAfee is a great place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Deerfield Beach, FL

    ProsWonderful environment, people are great, good culture. The people make the place; I couldn't think of a more desireable work environment to work in.

    ConsBeing a very large company, it is sometimes hard to get the information you need, or find who you need to get it from. They are not really good after aquiring another company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI have no advice to give to management. I think they do a great job at placing our company in the market it needs to be in and communicating with the employees.

    The McAfee experience was exhillarating and offered new learning experiences.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe company executes. The leadership is energetic and infectuous. The company is truly global, the people are diverse, and it is a collborative environment.

    ConsLike most large companies, the heavy lifting tends to be done by a smaller percentage of the people. The good part about this is if you like getting things done, you can have lots of opportunity. The not-so-good part about this is, you can easily get over-worked.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMcAfee's acquisition process probably serves the company well in the end. Improving on calibration and listening could bring innovation and change that would speed successful execution.
