    I have been working at McAfee full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Very relaxed yet professional atmosphere. They actually give you time to do your work the right way and don't overload you. My manager is great so far - pretty much hands off but is serious about keeping on schedule/track. Plenty to do, days fly by fast.

    Free coke machine.

    Cons

    Donut Fridays... needs to be healthier.

    Free coke machine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at McAfee full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    there 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Retrenchments 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 ManagementAdvice

    Please be mindful of cost-cutting measures

    I have been working at McAfee full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Product 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 ManagementAdvice

    Revamp 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Uncertainty 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.
