    Pros

    Flexible timing
    Big name in industry

    Cons

    Too much politics.
    Too much manual testing in QA side
    No trainings
    Old people in team involved in too much politics

    Advice to Management

    McAfee should reshuffle old people in team who are more than 5 years in same team. They have made his own group and not giving any chance to grow new people. Also some people are very poor in technical.

    Pros

    Salary paid on 25th of every month

    Cons

    1. Worst HR/Finance Dept, No help can be expected. Its like you are talking to Government employees if you go to them.
    2. No work life balance
    3. Every achievement of yours will have more negative comments than positives. you would be made to feel its not achievement but a home-excersise
    4. Full of politics with players inter dependent on each others, so no way a change can be expected.
    5. This review specific to Mac Linux Team
    6. Title is to tell you that, you would become dumb and can never be able to change job.
    7. More problems you have out side, more they would utilise opportunity to get extra work from you.
    8. Team satisfaction ratings always below normal in annual survey

    Advice to Management

    take my voice survey results seriously

    Pros

    Time flexibilty. Good offsite managers

    Cons

    Hiring wrong canditates for right profiles, who just use company benfits and extract companies assests but no returns to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Hire the right candidates who believe in contributing to the company rather creating a polticis inside the company and hampering the company image esp with the client.

    Pros

    Nice selection of holidays to take time off

    Cons

    Managers don't help. They sit around with each other screwing around a lot, telling jokes and making a stressful workplace even worse.

    Advice to Management

    Intel should lay off most of the existing inside sales management and promote people who really want to work and contribute to the company and their paycheck

    Pros

    Great people and products

    Cons

    Lack of diversity in opportunities, salary inequity and persistent discrimination against women make it a difficult place if you are female.
    If you are looking for work life balance do not come to this company.
