    Pros

    1. The products are best in the market.
    2. Talented pool of people around to work with

    Cons

    Where do I begin with.. The company seems to be directionless these days.. Management is only concerned on how to push quarter after quarter.. some times appears whether it has any vision?

    I think overall the motivation of the employees dipped. and then aggressive cost cutting..

    May be thats what happen when the company is given with almost impossible target by a parent company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Guys, you have great bunch of people.. please offer something better than MBO goals to motivate them with

    Pros

    Work life balance - you know what that means :) Little work and less pay.
    Achieve your MBO goals, earn your bonus and be happy.

    Cons

    Difficult to motivate yourself when everyone around you is so laid back. There is no motivation for anyone to achieve anything other than their MBO goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is not just about making policies and setting goals. Unless employees are passionate about what they do and take pride in their work, engagement levels will always be low.

    Pros

    Work Culture is Amazing and have seen very less politics in my team but again this might differ from team to team.
    Flexi-timing and Work from home option is offered which is very useful for those having young families.
    Work Life Balance is also well maintained.
    Management is spending on team bonding activities

    Cons

    Biggest drawback is that current Salaries are almost 20% less compared to what batch-mates are earning at other places. Doesn't make sense to continue for tenured employees especially after recent hikes given

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Market correction badly needed on salary front.

    Pros

    In retrospective, i felt McAfee was better than the companies where i worked later.
    It provides:
    Good Work-life balance;
    Employee friendly policies;
    Approachable HR and Finance team;
    Will get to learn security domain and various security products;
    Great career prospects, if you are a tester;
    Decent pay;
    Will depend on how you utilize the opportunities you get here;

    Cons

    In-house framework;
    Yearly lay-off;
    Mostly a testing factory;
    Stagnant growth;
    Pay cycle is messed up;
    Favoritism and politics are there just like any other place;
    Slowly but surely is being a service company;
    You will see some people climb the ladder pretty fast while others languish;

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the pay cycle
    Improve the work place
    Travel opportunities and incentives will motivate employees when pay is stagnant
