    I have been working at McAfee full-time

    Pros

    Strong product portfolio, globally known brand, and plenty of work to be done.

    Cons

    Spin off from Intel has led to a certain amount of uneasy/uncertainty as many different changes are being made. No standard method for collaboration across the entire organization means that finding answers often requires querying 3-4 sources.

    Advice to Management

    Collaboration issues mean that time is wasted finding answers, especially for those new to the company. Make it easier to harness the collective knowledge of the company as that is one of the most valuable assets it has.

    Good People to work with. Great learning curve.

    Use employees to their full potential. ASK them what they wanna achieve in their careers and provide a manager who can get the job done and doesn't hold any grudges (preferably non Indian mangers).
