Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Cutting edge of security technologies and people that worked in engineering to deliver for both the customers and shareholders.

Cons

there were some players in support management that practiced cronyism. This management was unseated by the executive team within six months of my departure and the relationships seem to be much better between support and engineering.

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

    Pros

    Your weaknesses become your strengths. I became very competent at the tasks I was assigned.

    Cons

    There are cliques within the office, I had a creepy boss, and the work can be very repetitive. The intern program is not built out as it should be.

    Advice to Management

    More training for interns, and get up to speed with what's popular in the Silicon Valley. That will attract the right set of employees.
