    I have been working at McAfee full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    solid company with constant growth and extremely professional and dedicated management and executive team - well positioned in the market thanks to strong partnerships - results driven, rewards great performers, transparent culture and decision making

    Cons

    requires a lot of dedication and personal investment in order to achieve company results and personal/professional growth, which may result in poor work/life balance - minimal salary increases once you are in

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    should reward better the best performers and the people who have been with McAfee for a long time, or they will have to look elsewhere for significant salary increases

    Pros

    Smart people, challenging work, passion for customers. Financially conservative as a company. Generous to those who perform. Acquisition by Intel a major win -- deep pockets, long-term view.

    Cons

    Very lean; tend to overload their best and brightest. Marketing focused on lead-generation over long-term customer advocacy and experience focsu, though with new CMO that may change.
