    I worked at McAfee full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people at McAfee are very good. They are approachable and friendly. The HR and most managers are employee friendly. One of the good product companies to work for.

    Cons

    Career growth is stagnant. Lot of people are still staying put here mostly because of money or challenging work (in rare cases).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create opportunities for employees to grow.
