    Pros

    Good mission, Good benefits and compensation. Great experience for the security industry.

    Entire business units are often cut to trim the fat, ignoring the individual talent within. Process is often done without progress which can be frustrating

    Advice to Management

    kill the tribal silo rivalry by paying attention to management structures and how entire groups live or die by according to what they hold onto.

    Pros

    decent salary and benefits, good people, good office environment for our team. there are lots of smart and talented people there.

    Cons

    mcafee was a sales and marketing company that happened to produce software. quality of software took a back seat to marketability and sales. this isn't uncommon, but seemed worse than normal.

    Advice to Management

    put more care into the quality of the product. value the engineers more. living quarter to quarter is not the only way to go.

    Pros

    Coworkers, like many place are excellent. Middle management is good too. Pay is good if you're a good negotiator.

    Cons

    It's hard to know where to start. Verbal abuse is standard, as is the total disregard for compliance or other rules of there is no danger of getting caught.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the walk if you talk the talk. Don't say that's it's "all about your people" when it's clearly not.
