I worked at McAfee full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Competitive salaries with quarterly bonuses. An Intel company.

Cons

Severe lack on integrity stemming from top level down. It is very hard to trust anyone. 'Good old boys' mentality with blatant favoritism. Management is flat with little room for advancement. Development requests fall into a black hole. It's very difficult to get anything done.

Advice to Management

Courses on management should be required for all managers by HR. Only director level managers and above have direct reports. How can mid-level managers learn to manage people if they aren't allowed direct reports?

    I worked at McAfee as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great culture. Good work life balance. If you are lucky to be in sales or management side, you will have great fun.

    Cons

    If you manager is someone who is sort of like a jackA hard to please type person then its gonna be tough. Especially when every other team is having a good time you are stuck in a team that goes nowhere.

    Advice to Management

    Try to make it a very collaborative, valued for what you know rather than who you know place.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    good benefits and smart people

    Cons

    An "eat your young" environment has gradually taken over since the Intel acquisition. It's become completely non supportive and an aggressively negative place to be. Lots of pressure from Intel on new products has created a constant sense of panic that results in poor behavior at the leadership level. Complete mismanagement of headcount quarter to quarter persists and results in a persistent hire-then fire process.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of bullying managers from the top down. They are slowly poisoning the culture. With so much opportunity in high tech A players are unlikely to stick around for the abuse.
