    I have been working at McAfee full-time

    Pros

    Great company culture. We've seen lots of efforts from management in recent months to make this a fun and inclusive environment. Loving the scooters in our offices and that we can bring our dogs in on a Friday!

    I also really value and appreciate the company's commitment and support behind diversity too. The company and its leaders not only make sure there's lot of employee events and activities that raise awareness and create an inclusive environment, but our leaders aren't afraid to talk publicly on these topics and to make a stand on these important issues.

    Cons

    So much great stuff happening in the US, would love to see this expand more globally to benefit more of my international coworkers

    Advice to Management

    Continue to deliver on commitments to employees.

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

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Multiple products employee culture.

    Cons

    Company is not the company it once was. New management could care less about employees. All equity is with executive management. Current management and PE are only worried about prepping the company to be sold or IPO. Its a skeleton of the company it's customers expect. Support and Products are lack luster and quite embarrassing. The only reason I stayed the amount of time I did was the culture of the employees who believed in the mission. Now there are ALOT of employees questioning the mission, the management and their future. Wouldn't be surprised to see mass exit in April-May 2018 time line.

    Advice to Management

    Don't ride your talent to the promise land and then stick them in the stables. remember those employees are the reason McAfee has the brand it does today.
