Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Free soft drinks, good place for someone to get their start in IT sales. Good health benefits, and PTO (when they let you take it) Lot's of great people stuck there though... Good products

Cons

Executive management are some of the worst humans you will ever meet.
While they stress work life management you WILL be working Christmas eve and the day after
Can't get promoted without being part of the "bros" club, or a girl with lose morals.
Very low pay for industry...
Spends money on stupid things like lavish parties with private concerts with rock stars.
One of the most bloated top heavy companies I have ever heard of...

Advice to Management

Fire about 90% of upper and middle management, starting with that rat they call a leader.

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

    Pros

    In terms of satisfaction, McAfee is by far the best company that I have worked for. I have worked for other security companies as well as contracting organizations and McAfee's culture, work-life balance and personnel are some of the best in North America.

    Cons

    Promotions have come based on the effort that I have put into the job and I have received much personal growth as a result of my effort. I have no CONS to consider at this time.

    Advice to Management

    Creating more of shared vision for success.
