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

    Pros

    Nothing special. Cab facility is fine. Food is pretty costly .

    Cons

    There is absolute no direction from the top level. Company is auto pilot mode despite big hype during Intel Spin-off. No new projects, no vision, no news. Its layoffs and product shut down.

    Advice to Management

    Launch new products rather shutting down products. There is better way of cost cutting than layoffs.

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

    Pros

    Majority of people very nice. Flexible hours, good salary

    Cons

    My manager never ever promoted his team or helped them develop. Was only interested in his own job. Very good at passing the buck but had no idea what was hoing I’m in his team. Lost a lot of good people because he was a bully!

    Advice to Management

    Company champions development but nothing Evers comes if it. Monitor your senior management and make them accountable. Listen to the lower ranks as that is where you will learn the truth about who does what!

    I worked at McAfee full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I loved the product that I worked on at McAfee. The work was technically challenging and rewarding.

    Cons

    In my time there was little to no focus on career development because business timelines were always so tight that management had no time to bother with that. Also, the management or organizational structure was changing too much for there to be any real continuity. When it came time for the layoff, the company treated us like garbage. I understand that a company sometimes has to go through layoffs and restructuring, but when you’ve been a good, loyal employee for over 5 years and your severance package is the same as what the company gives to troubled employees that they’re trying to get rid of, it’s insulting.

    Advice to Management

    Please actually care about your employees. Employers who care about their employees will have employees that care about the company.
