    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

    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
