    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 (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, especially for DFW area, high relative pay

    Cons

    Does not seem like a tech company when you walk in. High walled cubicles are all over, which discourages any collaboration . Promotions based on tenure not merit. Top management more reactionary than strategic

    Advice to Management

    Actually formulate a plan when pivoting strategy, don’t just blindly react to market. Knock down cubicle walls and encourage interaction

  8. "Not fair pay for women"

    I have been working at McAfee full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Provides free donuts every Friday, and free fruits everyday.

    Cons

    For most, the salary is fair and on the higher side of the industry standard. But for many , especially minority women, the salary is much below the industry standard. And not only that, their job titles doesn't reflect their work responsibility. Although this depends on individual managers but the company can definitely fix it.

    Advice to Management

    Please compare job responsibilities with job titles and then to industry standard salary to ensure everyone is fairly paid.
