    I worked at McAfee

    Pros

    * Leaders are distributed over Geo's; so regular face-time is possible leading to strong personal relationships\\
    * Industry standard and better pay
    * Program Management Organisation is powerful and it's value well understood

    Cons

    * Personal growth may not happen automatically, one needs to perform well and then follow it up
    * Aquired by Intel. So repercussions are still coming to light

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * The impact that a company like McAfee has on the world, and the lives of millions does not come across strongly. Motivation and performance will improve automatically, if this message is re-inforved periodically, and visible at all times
