I have been working at McAfee full-time for more than a year

Pros

Good work life balance
Some nice perks and programs

Cons

Hypocritical messages about employee empowerment (talk a lot but don't walk the talk).
Underlying sexism in culture - not overt but it's absolutely there
Can't get anything done
Way too much top down decision making

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you want the culture and results you say you do, behavior needs to change starting at the top. Employees are smarter than you think

    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

    I worked at McAfee full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Large company with decent benefits. Several good leaders across all sectors. Backed the legacy of desktop AV and the deep pockets of Intel.

    Cons

    Resources are numerous but difficult to tap. The good leaders are outnumbered by poor managers. Personnel cuts are notoriously done Oct-Dec - Merry Christmas. Severance packages are offered only as non-compete. No place for upward movement if not part of the "good old boy" team.
