I have been working at McAfee full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

It can be a fun place to work at times. There are company functions that bring employees together. Great people to work with.

Cons

McAfee's sales vision and strategy changes from year to year with no rhyme or reason. When things are working, they change it. When things are not, they don't. The most discouraging part is the quota setting. It's almost like they take a dart and throw it to a board and boom, there is your quota.

Advice to Management

Listen to your sales reps.

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

    Pros

    Fairly relaxed environment for engineers with stocked pantries.
    Innovation wise, they let you do what you want, but on your own time. People are open to new POCs and suggestions. You can work independently and management do not micro manage.

    Cons

    Below average pay range for engineers in the valley.
    Senior management are resistant to change. Thankfully, new architects and PMs recognize issues of change resistance.
    A few of the engineers here can't really work independently, thus constant hand holding becomes part of your job scope.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace change. Be radical about it. Try unproven methods.

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

    Pros

    -If you are lucky, you will get into right group which will have great minds and culture.
    -Lots of work with scope to learn

    Cons

    -If you are not lucky(most likely), you will end up in a team filled with people with no ambition but self centered thoughts offering no help
    -EXTREMELY poor immigration policies, STAY AWAY if you want McAfee to file GreenCard. HR pushes everyone to EB3 to make your life miserable
    -No growth for 5-8 years, then you will get 1 grade upgrade based how well you agreed to all things manager and lead wanted you to do

    Advice to Management

    If you want talents to stay, respect them, give scope to grow. Clean out idiots who stop team's progress and expedite green card process because lots of people at McAfee are unhappy with their jobs because of all these reasons.
