    I worked at McAfee as an intern

    Pros

    You're working with some of the brightest minds in the cybersecurity industry.

    Cons

    I was there during the McAfee to Intel Security re-branding efforts, which was rough. The usual intern program was discontinued, and there was a lot of pressure around the office due to huge layoffs and tension between business units.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in your training and intern programs!

    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.
