    I have been working at McAfee full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Working at McAfee for the past few months I have gathered a great amount of experience and insight into the industry of cybersecurity. The team is very friendly, the people are enthusiastic and committed to their work.

    Cons

    I feel like organisation wise, is where this company falls flat. I feel like there's been a very clear overall goal of where we need to get to but no specific roadmap or direction of how to get there specifically. While I admire the optimism and dedication the company has. It has a long way to go in making sure that we have clear goals and directions to reach the overall vision for the company.

    I worked at McAfee full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible culture. Junior level staff fully committed to helping the company succeed. Most people are not political and put their hearts into their work. The company has so much potential if it can be unlocked by the new leadership in place in 2020.

    Cons

    1- Weak leadership from the executive team on both strategy and execution. Has led to a revolving door at the top levels, which makes the business unstable. 2- Lack of transparency and communication from the top down. 3- HR is more of a leftist political organization interested in 'social justice' than a value add to the business. This takes energy and focus away from where it needs to be: the core business in an increasingly competitive market space. It has a toxic effect on the culture. 4- Overly reliant on cost cutting vs. driving growth. Too much of the business emphasis rests in India. 5- Repeated, year after year, layoffs create a morale and trust problem across the employee base.
