    I worked at McAfee full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great technology, learning experiences, working with many teams, stable company.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, there is a laundry list of reasons to not work at McAfee and they all have to do with the people. Management is tyrannical, upper management only sees numbers and wants to ship jobs overseas, there is an unhealthy environment of competition among peers, instead of a healthy environment of working together as a team. The salary for any job is lower than market. At the same time there is a lot of work, which means long hours every day.

    Advice to Management

    Take a step back and assess where the talent is, invest in that talent and you will end up with quality products that customers want to buy and keep. Remove the dictators and bring in true leaders who know how to foster positive team environments where employees are excited about their jobs, drive innovation and quality, and enjoy going to work. The effect of this will also be quality products that customers want to keep and buy.
