I have been working at McAfee as a contractor for less than a year

Pros

First Thursday free beer, Fee Muffins on Friday, casual work environment , that's about it.

Cons

In 6 months they fires 3 people and two more just walk out in the Labs division alone. McAfee's Virus detection rates are very low, they are loosing money, there clients are leaving Not a good organization to work for. Plus Intel owns them and there is talk of them folding them in and big laying offs

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There are too may managers and none of them know anything about enterprise IT operations. You would think a company like McAfee would have world class IT, Not so much

Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    Sleazy snakepit; but I was there before Intel took over, so maybe it's better now
