    I worked at McAfee full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Professional people to work with.

    Cons

    Over the course of 13 years, I've seen too many restructures - each time re-inventing the wheels and not listening to people who actually do the work.

    Advice to Management

    Walk your mission statement.

    Pros

    Mcafee’s benefits fall inline with the rest of industry. Currently, Mcafee appears to allow a good work life balance for most of the employees.

    Cons

    I did not see much effort put towards employee continuing education such as higher education or certification. I hope going forward they will invest in employees.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that you have employees not just investors

    I worked at McAfee full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Most areas promote a solid work-life balance. Working to help secure consumers and companies provides a sense of contributing more to just the McAfee bottom line.

    Cons

    There appears to be a short-sightedness to the leadership team that has taken away from the once team-oriented feeling around the company.

    Advice to Management

    Move quickly to go public once again - until then, things will likely get a little worse before they get better.

    Amazing culture, leadership and growth opportunities. I love the direction we are headed!

    Cons

    Very fast paced environment. You've got to be a good culture fit and willing to put in the time to be successful.
