    I have been working at McAfee full-time for more than 8 years

    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.

    Seasonal lay-offs typically during December
