    I worked at McAfee full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great management, always made sure to recognize employees' hard work. The possibilities of new career paths and advancements were encouraged and exemplified by if not your own, but your colleagues' career progression.

    Cons

    Halfway through my tenure there, enforced policies to adhere to lowering budget costs was implemented. At the time it seemed to be negative, but upon quarter close the % saved was nearly impossible to overlook.

    Advice to Management

    Positive experience in regards to high level executives; really respected the fact that they always made a point in promote internally.

    Pros

    Outstanding benefits, great culture, exciting technology!

    Cons

    Typical corporate stuff, but nothing unusual or systematic.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe loosen the reins a little on the spending. We work pretty hard here, and mostly for love of the business itself. Cost controls are important, but maybe try to have a little more of a buffer.

    I worked at McAfee full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There is always something new due to growth, M&A or market. Company invests in its people with training, mentorship and proper feedback. Compensation was excellent with really good benefits.

    Cons

    The M&A schedules can be ridiculously short and the under/over hiring plan flexes every year. Unfortunately due to M&A positions are eliminated every year. If your on the technology side the resources are mainly in India.

    Advice to Management

    Better hiring plan by Sales and Engineering would help with the annual RIF due to bad planning.
