    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.
