    Pros

    benefits and payment. Its a relaxed work place. They pay for drinks, and bring donuts on friday. The bonus estructure is very good. They always keep us inform of the changes. You can really feel that you can go and talk to the CEO and He will make sure that he will listen to you.

    Cons

    I have not been able to find any reasons to feel bad about working at McAfee. Have you ever wake up and wanted to go to work? That's how I feel at McAfee. The only bad side about working at McAfee is that at the end of the day you have to go home.

    Advice to Management

    pay more attention to your employees. Try to keep them, too many good people leaving because they can't offer anything additonal.

    Pros

    I like my job and the tasks that I perform on a day to day basis. Management is flexible with schedule. Benefits are great! Management challenges the employee with goals that are difficult to reach but attainable.

    Cons

    Opportunities for advancement are unkown. Not very much interaction between management and employees. More communication between management and employees would be good.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to advance in my job and/or position, but a career path is not obvious. I would like to see more communication between management and employees to discuss career goals and advancement. (for those employees that are interested, some employees like there current job and don't want to move)


  3. Overall a great place to work!

    Pros

    The company definitely promotes work/life balance. The flexibility and convenience of working remotely is strongly encouraged and endorsed without judgement. Positive energy and a good success story make it a place to be proud of.

    Cons

    The company can be a bit conservative when it comes to spending money, but that has allowed it to show double digit growth quarter after quarter. It is a responsible way to cost control.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Being 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 Management

    I 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.
