    Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback as well as for your long service of eight years at McAfee. We’re glad you appreciate our flexible working options and the many benefits and employee perks we offer. Innovation is at the center of everything that we do. Whether it’s through the recent acquisition of cloud-leader, Skyhigh networks, or with the launch of innovation programs such as our i2i initiative (Ideas to Innovations), we’re committed to developing and providing industry-leading technology for our customers. We recognize of course there’s always scope to do more, so please do continue to share your feedback with your manager and business leader (or go ahead and enter our i2i competition!) so we can continue to evolve and enhance McAfee technologies to keep our customers safe.

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

    Pros

    Big cooperate to work with.

    Cons

    Very fast portfolio and with no prior experience with the product, the only option is self learning in the company. Training is only provided to senior staff.

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

    Pros

    Really good team spirit. Morale is excellent, product-set is really good and valid for right now, not just selling roadmap. Sales and SEs work as a team, no 'them and us' attitudes here. Great management team, not up themselves but treat you as an equal. Training is plentiful and well organised- SEs need training to keep sharp, and they deliver. Travelling to training in another country isn't a big deal, no penny pinching here.

    Cons

    The Slough office is a little tired, but this is really the only con I can see at this point

    I have been working at McAfee

    Pros

    Established name in the security space, large portfolio of products, above average pay rates, standard benefits available with an organization the size of Intel. Upper management attempting to drive innovation.

    Cons

    Struggling with years of perception related issues about their products. Extremely large portfolio of products, which causes difficulties regarding development/Integration, Support, and Sales. Intel Security ( McAfee ) & "Mother Intel" are in two separate businesses. Intel does not seem to understand Security.

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

    Pros

    Large company with decent benefits. Several good leaders across all sectors. Backed the legacy of desktop AV and the deep pockets of Intel.

    Cons

    Resources are numerous but difficult to tap. The good leaders are outnumbered by poor managers. Personnel cuts are notoriously done Oct-Dec - Merry Christmas. Severance packages are offered only as non-compete. No place for upward movement if not part of the "good old boy" team.
