    Pros

    Flexible work hours
    Allow working from home
    Compensation in line with market

    Cons

    Can be difficult to co-ordinate working across time zones in a Support role for products with no local engineering presence
    Hardly any Team events / Fun events
    The acquisition by Intel followed by integration and re branding to Intel Security and then back to McAfee is a confusing and demotivating factor

    Advice to Management

    Would help to have clear communication to employees on the current and future direction of the company. Need to have more Fun events and Team building activities.

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

    Pros

    1. Work Life Balance is great particularly for Engineering teams.
    2. Lots of work from home, depends on team and manager.
    3. Pay almost according to market.
    4. Good opportunities to work on various innovative projects, if you wish to take initiative.
    5. Business class air tickets on long haul flights, as per policy. (Manager dependent. Few managers ask to book only economy class)

    Cons

    1. Company going thorough lot of turbulence. First Intel acquired McAfee and re-branded it to Intel Security. At the same time Intel closed a lot of (profitable+not so profitable) products, resulting in lots of exits.

    Again Intel Security is made a private firm and renamed back to McAfee.
    Lot of folks are very worried about stability, appraisals and job security.
    (My primary reason of leaving)

    2. Food at Bangalore EGL office: Horrible, even after lots of vendor changes. Cafeterias are also very crowded.

    3. Hardly one full day outings / team lunch/dinners in a year.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent to employees. Employees have a right to know what is going to happen once TPG acquisition is complete specially related to next year appraisals, job security, product road maps, etc. Vague answers to genuine questions create more confusion than clarity.
