    Pros

    McAfee is now part of Intel, what makes the experience much more interesting in terms of career development and also resume purposes

    Cons

    Depending on which department you work on, sometimes carrer development within the company is not that easy as they claim to be. Salaries are lower than similar companies, and promotions won't give you much more earnings

    Advice to Management

    Management should provide more support to their team members in terms of training to help them grow as professionals.

    Pros

    Outstanding benefits, great culture, exciting technology!

    Cons

    Typical corporate stuff, but nothing unusual or systematic.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe loosen the reins a little on the spending. We work pretty hard here, and mostly for love of the business itself. Cost controls are important, but maybe try to have a little more of a buffer.

    Pros

    Inclusive culture, talented peers, interesting job with no micro managing. Believes in empowering employees.

    Senior management can be petty...you have to constantly build your network with the right individuals to keep in the running

    Take a more planful approach to creating a positive company culture

    Pros

    Had a the opportunity to do well with product

    Cons

    Executive extremely poor, if you were part of the bros club then things went well even if you did not perform. Total abuse by upper management, wasted money on lavish parties etc.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Great people and products

    Cons

    Lack of diversity in opportunities, salary inequity and persistent discrimination against women make it a difficult place if you are female. If you are looking for work life balance do not come to this company.
