Not great and sometimes "ew"

Employee (Current Employee)

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

ProsGood work life balance
Some nice perks and programs

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
