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.

    I have been working at McAfee full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Immediate colleagues are great and well as immediate managers. Benefits are pretty standard (2 weeks for new employees, 401k match, etc...). There is opportunity to move around within the company if you're interested in different positions that are open. A decent place to start a career.

    Cons

    Lack of communication within the company. A lot of "left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing" and very little coordination which can make projects difficult. Very frequent to sudden changes in policy and projects with very little forewarning.

    Company politics and a very "silo'd" feeling within the organization. There is also a lack of employee appreciate events/awards and not very competitive raises.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better with employees and make them feel valuable through more reward programs.
    Offer competitive pay for current employees to keep good talent.
    Trim down upper management and number of VPs to better avoid internal company politics.

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

    Pros

    Depending on the project you work on it has very little supervision and you can do what you want to get things done

    Cons

    No management has huge downfalls as well, they will you a project fall flat on its face until the world blows up, then they care.

    That is super frustrating

    Advice to Management

    Be more technical, you can not couch someone in Chess if you only know Checkers
