    I worked at McAfee

    Pros

    * Leaders are distributed over Geo's; so regular face-time is possible leading to strong personal relationships\\
    * Industry standard and better pay
    * Program Management Organisation is powerful and it's value well understood

    Cons

    * Personal growth may not happen automatically, one needs to perform well and then follow it up
    * Aquired by Intel. So repercussions are still coming to light

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * The impact that a company like McAfee has on the world, and the lives of millions does not come across strongly. Motivation and performance will improve automatically, if this message is re-inforved periodically, and visible at all times

    Pros

    Good place to work. Focus is always on delivering products which are relevant to the customers.
    IDeas from employees get more than fair review. Employees get to enhance their skills by working on projects of thier interest and are also paired up with mentors.

    Cons

    There is a fair bit of political maneuvering, especially in the management layer.
