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

    Pros

    Employees bring their passion to work every single day. I met some tenured (> 7 years) employees in the last 6 weeks that I've been here. If there is one thing that everyone echoes - people and culture.

    Cons

    Nothing to write home about. McAfee is back to being an independent entity and the teething issues should be resolved soon

    Advice to Management

    Continue to do things with speeds and agility as is being done now.

    Bad management (especially for contract employees)

    then why treating @contract employees as just use-and-throw-pen
