    I have been working at McAfee full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You can run around openly sharing your sexuality as long as you are not heterosexual. Non Whites, non Christians and non males are encouraged to apply for jobs and receive promotions. White males need not apply - you're boring and we have too many of you already.

    Cons

    Diversity for diversity sake will bury this company.

    Advice to Management

    Get real, get off your PC high horse.

    I worked at McAfee full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    To learn politics
    To learn surviving by boot licking

    Manager is your god , praise him - no need to work.

    Cons

    Company is not growing because of above pros.
    No good work is given to India - all sustenance work.
    No innovations - no importance given to innovation.
    People are there for long term they are good in politics they won't let you grow.

    Advice to Management

    Fire most of management in India to revive the company

    I worked at McAfee full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Benefits. If you like to party and drink- this is the culture for you. Fun place to work at if you do not like a professional environment. Great training program.

    Cons

    Work hard- play harder. Drinking and partying are WAY to emphasized at this place. Women have a very difficult time to move up and get raises.
    You work during the holidays a lot. They work life balance is awful- they could care less if you see family as long as you are making your numbers and making them money. Horrible pay.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so corrupt. Give women a chance. Pay your workers better.

    I worked at McAfee full-time

    Pros

    An interesting and necessary business category in today's society.

    Cons

    Lack of direction as Intel Security, don't feel like the company is committed to the business. Sr. Management not cohesive, looking out for themselves or looking to leave the company. Unclear as to the connection between Intel and McAfee. There's a reason they are looking to sell the division.

    Advice to Management

    Best to sell the division and divest of the association.

    Pros

    We just had our sales kickoff in Las Vegas and it was laughable how bad most if not all of the management presentations were. One of the sales managers presentation was total fluff and totally lacking of any substance.

    Cons

    Ever since Intel took over all of the talented executive management left and went to other companies leaving behind the spares and bench warmers to run the company. It's pathetic at just how bad, inexperienced and immature so many of them are. They've made Intel Security a miserable place to work and people are leaving here quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in some new effective leadership or just shut the doors on this place
