    Pros

    Some of the pros include a good work life balance, facilities and people.

    Cons

    Some of the downsides being low salaries as compared to the market, management, and work.

    If salaries can be tweaked according to the market values that would be nice.

    Pros

    you will get to learn a lot, technical interview is a bit tough but if you get selected you have high chances of getting absorbed in the same company, works mostly on cloud computing and c++, java, python are the languages you will be working on mostly

    Cons

    No cons as such it's just that you have to work with people elder than you and it's totally professional environment,

    Advice to Management

    Keep going the same way

    Pros

    Best security products to work for in the industry great customers and learning Best manager i have ever worked for ( and perhaps will ever meet ) awesome team

    Cons

    less engineers in as for the calls too much overlap in calls management not taking action against bad engineers

    Advice to Management

    increase engineers as per the calls/work load otherwise everybody will leave and pay them as per market and not compare with endpoint

    Pros

    Good compensation especially after Intel merger. No micromanagement. Flexible work hours After Intel merger better access to resources.

    Cons

    Inefficient management. Work not properly organized. Favoritism can be seen no matter how good a worker you are resulting in demoralization.

    Advice to Management

    Have effective communication with the sub-ordinates. Define tasks more clearly. Assess the work done than just relying on the initial impression of a person you've made.

    Lots of exposure to the technology and you get to learn all about IT.

    Micromanagement and the managers are not open-minded for ideas.

    Let the talented people grow not the one who has been with the organization for a long time.

    Pros

    Good working environment. People are very friendly.

    Cons

    Some people involve in politics. Hardly any innovation (true innovation) comes out.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to learn about the competitive market. The work is pretty slow here. Somehow, it earns money with the legacy products and its brand.


  10. Software Engineer : Salary Break-up

    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Bangalore (India)

    I worked at McAfee full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Bought by Intel, now called Intel Security. Re-structuring still on-going, I heard it'll merge into Intel in a year ot so. So the brand is good. Rest no clue cause i declined the offer.

    Cons

    The salary is way too less. 6.6L is base plus an other 60000 here and there. first year u get 2L bonus, that's it. This is for B.Tech. For M.Tech the base salary is 7.6L. not much of a difference for an extra 2 years of studying...

    Advice to Management

    u want solid candidates, u need to raise the salary bar. also please send quality HR team to colleges. the panelists are not setting a great example.
