      Pros

      Just Mcafee , a brand name to work for

      Cons

      Too much of micro management. For a group of 5-10 engineers, there will be an equivalent number of managers (nobody really knows what they are actually doing). Some managers go to an extent of standing beside your desk and staring at your screen. . This is the reason why Mcafee cork could not retain well experienced and skilled engineers. People should really rethink twice before joining this company. No proper compensation, worst management, no work/life balance. One of the worst environment to work .

    7. 2.0
      Current Employee, more than 3 years

      No clear vision of business strategy, constant change, and no transparency

      May 7, 2021 - Senior Lead Engineer in Cork
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Competitive pay - Competitive benefits - Talented employees - Company values are practiced widely across the company - There is a general feeling of "we're all in this together" across most teams and cross-team collaboration

      Cons

      - The company has made so many huge changes throughout the years, from being its own private entity, to selling major ownership to Intel and going public, then Intel selling its majority shares and going private again, to an IPO, and now to selling its entire Enterprise division to venture capitalist firm, Symphony Technology Group. - The company has no clear direction of where it wants to go... it has aimlessly tacked its business strategy numerous times - High churn of company leaders and executives - Ever since the company was hacked in 2019 and hackers accessed product source code, IT has made pushed excessive restrictions & requirements on product teams which require additional resources from product teams although funding for additional resources was never provided - Company executives mislead employees and make huge decisions in secret. There is zero transparency in this matter and typical of "big corp" mentality. Expect to be treated as a just a number (in $$ of course) and replaceable resource. - Since the company is now only focused on their Mobile products division, there is not much growth left as there is very little innovation in this space and the company is fighting to maintain consumer subscriptions (e.g., how many people do you know are still paying for antivirus software?) - Very little career growth

      Pros

      Had a nice salary there, flexibility and quite interesting projects

      Cons

      The new directives are splitting the company, firing left and right and off-shoring engineering roles. We'll see what happens in a few years, but for now AVOID
