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

    Pros

    Really good cause, "protecting people".
    Pays well, if you negotiate hard. Good bonus program, has paid out fairly consistently

    Cons

    Hard place to work. A company of acquisitions that run very independently. Getting better, but a long ways to go for all to have the same compass needle pointing in the same direction.
    Intel assimilation being accelerated, looking for synergies now.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out the brand story, and communicate where/how the company needs to change to meet Intel operating margin goals..it will be tough and require much top line growth, or paring down, or both.

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

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits are satisfactory and seem to compare well

    Cons

    Headcount not in line with success levels for the projects committed to - expect to work late.
    Highest levels of leadership seem disconnected fromreality. The problems and successes they mention don't seem real. Local leadership struggles with cultural assimilation issues even years after acquisition.

    Advice to Management

    Add some headcount or drop some projects.
