I worked at McAfee for more than a year

Pros

I really enjoyed the people and the commute! The building had a great cafeteria and they did some really fun things for their employees like "bring your kid to work" day.

Cons

Many people are in manager level or above postions who aren't effective leaders. There is a lot of politcs and backstabbing and corporate climbing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn to lead in a way that inspires your employees rather than makes them fearful of losing their job every day.

    I worked at McAfee for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - People are genuinely collaborative and caring
    - Some great products
    - A clear technical strategy

    Cons

    - The clear technical strategy is unreachable without a significant investment in additional technical staff
    - Little consideration given for work/life balance
    - Very low morale

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reign in the strategy of acquisition, or factor into it the need to increase the sales + technical resources needed turn acquisitions into successful revenue generators without neglecting the existing portfolio of products.
