    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    good cafeteria.
    When I first joined, the people around are friendly. But great minds leave the company soon.

    Cons

    Intel does not care about Intel Security... so tiny for Intel's profits..
    So, very little for career dev, almost no techniques enhancement or improvement.
    Not clear strategy for security world, from top to middle.
    Always profits is the best policy--which means-- laid-off happens, more and more often

    I worked at McAfee (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good environment, not a lot of hassle.
    Co-workers were hard-working, management mostly was decent.
    Reasonable amount of management consulting with employees.

    Cons

    Clients who were known to be problems were not dealt with very well.
    Training materials were often ludicrously outdated (3-4 versions outdated)!
    Contractors, especially after the Intel takeover, treated as less than regular employees.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your contractors.
    Deal with clients when they abuse employees.
    Fix the training materials.
    Less contracting, more direct hire. (Trust me, morale will be directly affected.)

    "Nepotism at its Best"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Former Employee - Siebel Administrator/EIM/Data Migration Analyst
    Former Employee - Siebel Administrator/EIM/Data Migration Analyst

    I worked at McAfee (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good compensation easy going. You can easily fit in your friends and college mates into the company at the expenses of other good employees.

    Cons

    Relatives / Friends are important than work and company. Nepotism at its best mainly in IT. People work here just to show to upper management. More time is spent on drafting emails than actual work.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of what is going on. Keep rotating people and managers. Please bring Intel culture.
