    I have been working at McAfee full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They take care of their people, management cares what employees think, before Intel the PTO was very good and seems like it's headed that way again. Cross functional teams work collaboratively, and remote employees are not treated differently from those at headquarters (as far as actual work goes). The consumer products are very solid.

    Cons

    With the recent Intel acquisition and now spin-off it doesn't feel as stable as it has in years past. It's hard to get promoted if you're not at headquarters. Pay is okay but not great.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating with employees throughout the spinoff. Don't make changes just for the sake of change. Keep investing in technology.

    Organization is on the upswing, finally allowing innovation to take place and empowering the teams.

    Pros

    Security is a very important and relevant space. McAfee has lucked into being in the middle of a trendy domain.

    Cons

    The consumer organization in particular doesn't focus on improving people's security. They focus on short term sales targets without a larger plan.

    Leadership on the consumer side is also a mess. Very ego-driven with very little actual security expertise.

    Advice to Management

    Change the consumer leadership team and commit to a focus on security

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

    Pros

    So much is broken, that there is room to fix something - anything - and shine.

    Cons

    Sub par engineers, sub par junior/middle managers, sub par senior management.
    Sub par salary. Sub par work. Sub par benefits.
    Antiquated products. Behind the curve customers.
    No one seems to care.
    It's cute that they are headquartered in Silicon Valley. They are oblivious to silicon valley ethos.

    Advice to Management

    Keep milking the cash cow until you can. There are just so many things that are wrong, that It's unlikely you'll be able to turn this around.

    Pros

    Great work environment, very collaborative. Growing enthusiasm as we move on with TPG and keep ties with Intel. Can't wait until 2017.

    Cons

    Some staff too tenured and out of touch with current day practices. Not often but find these seasoned employees to be robotic about process, limits theirs and teams around them to grow.
