    I worked at McAfee full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good work life balance, nice people

    Cons

    - Absolutely no vision and strategy changes with the wind - Management is mostly a glorified excel sheet and mostly cares about holding their jobs, not about actually building and improving the organization - Selling a extremely technical solution requires technical knowledge but this aspects seems to be completely overlooked and the training focus is on trivial stuff - Getting anything internal done requires a lot of time and effort since there are no processes in place - Most of the best talent has left in the past couple of years so there has been a massive loss of institutional knowledge - Compensation model does not reflect the reality The culture itself feels like a cult. You are being told day in day out how McAfee is the number 1 cyber sec company in the world but the reality is something completely different. You are supposed to drink the Kool-aid, not bring up any lagging or negative aspects of the company. Start following the company around the web and you'll notice how most of the marketing revolves around how the CEO has been nominated by some obscure website as the "most innovative leader" and yet the company is falling apart.
