    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    Before Intel took over, the environment was fun, happy people and an overall fondness for the jobs, work life balance and flexibility. Internal processes were smooth and as long as you got the job done, there was never an issue if you needed to leave early, attend a school event for you kids. Micromanagement didn't exist.

    Cons

    Now that Intel took over, we've had to say goodbye to many hardworking people. The morale is down, the internal processes from Intel are incredibly time consuming and to get anywhere with a project is worse than pulling teeth. And worth the mention, some departments were told that they were safe from the recent layoffs, that they wouldn't be affected and our site was done. Well that was a lie and it's heartbreaking.

    Advice to Management

    Stop letting the news stations and news report be the 1st Avenue for employees to learn of their fate. Communicate upfront with integrity.

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

    Pros

    Great Benefits. If you like to party and drink- this is the culture for you. Fun place to work at if you do not like a professional environment. Great training program.

    Cons

    Work hard- play harder. Drinking and partying are WAY to emphasized at this place. Women have a very difficult time to move up and get raises.
    You work during the holidays a lot. They work life balance is awful- they could care less if you see family as long as you are making your numbers and making them money. Horrible pay.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so corrupt. Give women a chance. Pay your workers better.

    I worked at McAfee as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, solid benefits, good hours.

    Cons

    Things were shaky during the change in ownership, but things are stabilizing so the future is looking bright. Try to preserve the McAfee culture.

    Advice to Management

    Don't try to change the McAfee culture too much. You have inherited amazing employees that will be loyal to you if you're loyal to them.

    Pros

    Good people. Decent place to learn sales.

    Cons

    They are hiring younger and less experienced sales people for less money. A good fit for younger, might not be a great fit for more seasoned folks. Very high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Commit to your people and turnover might go down.
