    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    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.

    Pros

    Established F500 customers with existing accounts so product is known in marketplace.

    Cons

    Still developing processes which means delays are inherent in pushing deals through systems. They are still struggling with Diversity and Inclusion. They are creating a new culture that is not making it's way through the ranks.
