    I have been working at McAfee full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good Story, great people on the field, strong sales leadership in the field.

    Cons

    Sold to TPG, poor leadership at the top, C-Level, has led to lingering quality issues in key endpoint solutions. That has led to support and development challenges to stay relevant and deliver in a timely fashion. Too much time putting out fires and saving logos versus selling to new logos.

    Advice to Management

    Oversight at the top on how they invest in people and R&D. Move from McAfee name/brand to a new brand. Issues and concerns linger from pre Intel acquisition and post sale to TPG. If they can get rid of the quality issues and deliver on the message it will be an overwhelming success, if not the competition will continue to make them appear irrelevant.

    They encourage innovative thinking. You do not get stuck in one are, there is lots of collaboration between IT teams and others units. They value the people who work at McAfee and want to help you grow.

    Cons

    We are still working out leaving from Intel, growing pains of becoming a new company of large size. Our new CFO does not agree with telecommuting.

    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.
