    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    - Cork is cool - You can keep track of bad Dev/Ops, to make sure you will never meet them again and/or join the company they will go to in the future

    Cons

    - Poor management - Too many so-called "architects" with Medieval period knowledge/experience - Top guys are leaving the company - Sometimes it felt like a money laundering company

    I have been working at McAfee full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Cork is okay - McAfee had a decent name (now dwindling)

    Cons

    - Owned by Private Equity - Inept leadership - especially at the Cork Site - Executive team - only interested in lining own pockets - HR truly useless (words fail me to be honest) - Aggressive Sales Culture

    Advice to Management

    - sack yourselves, you are driving this once great company into the ground

    Pros

    Inclusive and relaxed environment. Good salary and benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Play to win. Be innovative. Recognize and retain talents. Think if what you are doing is the best for the company not just for retaining your job!
