Pros

Mcafee has very good products and a great set of internal Support Engineers. Mcafee has a great benefits package. The employees there are a close knit family. Senior Management very competent but dealing with huge changes due to upper Executive changes that were made end of 07. Did I say they have great benefits?

Cons

Employees not given carrer path for advancement. They don't look within for promotions. Knee Jerk Changes with no regards to how it impacts employees mentally nor monetarily. The systems at Mcafee are lacking in making sure employees are paid correctly. Finance unaccountable for communicating wages expected and when people will get paid.

Advice to Management

Do a better job taking care of current employees

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The free drinks. The level of knowledge in the research side of the organization is bar none. The company is profitable and future projections are very strong.

    Cons

    The research side could use work in integrating the various companies that McAfee buys. Also, it seems like Product Management has a clear idea of where they are going and are constantly changing directions. These changes have a big impact and usually lead to wasted cycles in the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved in your organization. Support more company functions.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Broad access to a number of technologies that can be used. If you're in sales you can make some serious dough. Flexible work schedule with remote working being acceptable for many roles. Slackers are quick to be eliminated, as most folks pull their weight and more.

    Cons

    Rather flat organization with limited advancement opportunity for technically oriented folks that want to stay technical. You have the option of either going into sales or going somewhere else unless a director role becomes available and you happen to be the best candidate for the role in the location where it is being offered. There are a lot of "Senior" this or thats, several directors, and it seems like a few too many VPs.

    Advice to Management

    Don't ignore advancement opportunities for your technical teams.
