    McAfee - Part of Intel Security

    Senior Director (Current Employee) Reston, VA

    ProsIn terms of satisfaction, McAfee is by far the best company that I have worked for. I have worked for other security companies as well as contracting organizations and McAfee's culture, work-life balance and personnel are some of the best in North America.

    ConsPromotions have come based on the effort that I have put into the job and I have received much personal growth as a result of my effort. I have no CONS to consider at this time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreating more of shared vision for success.

    Great company with excellent technical core

    Senior Manager (Former Employee) Portland, OR

    ProsCutting edge of security technologies and people that worked in engineering to deliver for both the customers and shareholders.

    Consthere were some players in support management that practiced cronyism. This management was unseated by the executive team within six months of my departure and the relationships seem to be much better between support and engineering.

    Good place to learn and grow

    Marketing Operations (Current Employee) Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsExcellent culture and professional people, superior flex--benefits, open communication from senior management.

    ConsRetrenchments in the name of cost-cutting, which not only affects those who are forced to leave, but also de-motivates the others who stay back in the organization

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease be mindful of cost-cutting measures

    Software Engineering Perspective

    Software Development Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsGood engineers, good processes, management has realistic expectations, good perks/benefits, management understands the value engineers bring to the company

    ConsProduct Management group immature and has little (if any) oversight, no standards, no reviews of their work, no quality, etc... it's quite sad as I think they are really holding back growth.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRevamp entire product management group, get more specialized/expert resources into engineering processes and don't rely on software engineers to do everything. Let them code.

    A great company that works hard to provide good benefits. Needs to weather the current storm and market trends.

    Software Developer (Current Employee) Mission Viejo, CA

    ProsGreat benefits package, like health insurance, IRA, training
    Conscientious and considerate managers
    Challenging and rewarding work

    ConsUncertainty as many of the markets they lead in are starting to slow down. The company can buy companies to boost its lineup, however the outlook may not be bright for teams working on products in segments that are experiencing little or no growth.
