Current Employee - Infrastructure Engineer in Beaverton, OR (US)

I have been working at McAfee as a contractor (less than an 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

    I have been working at McAfee full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Above average salary.
    Fairly good working conditions
    Pension on par with other large corporate companies

    Cons

    Lacking in direction - become 'me too' players, follow the crowd
    Do what Intel tell us to do with no pushback
    HR pathetic - not HR at all, purely yes/no sir folk to leadership team

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Break the company up and get some strategy together - it's sinking slowly but surely.
