    I worked at McAfee full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Salary was good but just because my ex-boss helped raise it. they didn't even want to allocate a relocation budget before he managed to get one.

    Cons

    Fringe benefits and perks were ridiculous for any1 working outside the UK. The Company culture was only based on sales and all the rest, including HR, Support, Engineering to execute on Sales orders were quite outdated, under staffed or often incompetent or unwilling to support. In general Very jealous of their own domain, back-stabbing was frequent among colleagues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get someone better to replace you.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
