      Looks Good on Paper...

      Pros

      Perks are really good, including but not limited to "unlimited" PTO and health benefits. Peers are willing to help when needed. Pretty ideal culture to be a part of in compared to previous employers. Great place to get your foot in the door and gain experience in a desired position.

      Cons

      McAfee does not provide ways for self-improvement, let alone encourage personal growth. Organization structure needs improvement - there are manager positions being held by those with minimal leadership skills. McAfee has the mentality of a Small Business/start-up, yet exercises the "Follow the Sun" workflow method which presents a communication disconnect between business segments. There are no actual process and procedures in place to help regulate work/life balance. I have yet to receive a promotion, nor have I heard of any internal candidate promotions in well over 8 months. The "little people" are hardly recognized for their contributions to the success of a major rollout . The culture of the company is constantly discussed and talked about during almost every company-wide event, but I have witness very little "walking the walk".

      Don’t Fall For The Hype

      Pros

      Flexible work life balance, name recognition, global scope, unlimited vacation, Pups at work

      Cons

      Employees need to see that they have an opportunity to grow while staying at the company. Unfortunately, the company pads their diversity numbers by promoting Hispanics and other Under represented minorities based on popularity and adherence to a slave like mentality versus merit. Career path planning is a big focus for white women. Honestly, if you are diverse don’t waste your emotional energy.

      Fine place to get some cyber security experience

      Pros

      Excellent people to work with within the local office Good place to learn about cyber security Good work-life balance Free LaCroix and fruit CEO is genuinely a great person

      Cons

      Your first line manager doesn't have much visibility into upper management Heavily loaded with cheap, low quality offshore engineering labor, highly inefficient Heart is totally focused on maybe-IPO, will do what it takes to make this happen Upper management actually does not align to company values, even though it's posted all over the office All Life at McAfee marketing seems false once you're an employee there Slow paced

      Pros

      Good pay, benefits, flexible and good work-life balance

      Cons

      If you are joining the consumer BU, it is ok. Don't join enterprise, cloud BU. Better to invest your time to find another good company even if it takes some extra time.

      Not what it used to be

      Mar 10, 2019 - Anonymous Employee in Plano, TX

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - A big name on your resume. - Good 401k benefits if you're FTE. - Free fruit and beverages (other companies offer more). - Great cooks, recommend getting in good with them. That's it, could not think of anything more!

      Cons

      - Stressful due to high workloads, bad work/life balance. - Upper management uses empty lies and blind promises to keep people around. - Management constantly dumping responsibilities without extra pay. - Low starting salary, behind regional average. - As contractor with no benefits and lower pay than average, McAfee will attempt to keep you as long as possible to not go against headcount..beware. - Contractors do not get PTO, full-time employees get unlimited time off. - Auditors everywhere! As another comment noted, pushing to go IPO by private equity firm/venture capitalist resulting in a revolving door of talent and quarterly layoffs with no reasons as to why. - Faux culture: people are nice enough but lazy employees, employees treat contractors poorly, and divisive gap lodged between management. - Jobs moving abroad to places like India, American workers are not protected. - Intel destroyed this organization by putting them into debt. - Could not take time off in fear of losing job, yet a high performer. - Burn out friendly, proceed with caution.
