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

    Pros

    Good place to work and there is much opportunity during this stabilization phase. It was previously under the umbrella of Intel Security but has now, once again, become McAfee.

    Cons

    Too many inexperienced managers at different levels during this stabilization phase. It has been difficult to see bad decision making during this stabilization process which has put unnecessary burdens on many people causing burn out.

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

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to learn from talented seniors. Frequent technical & knowledge sessions even outside of your current projects. Culture like a family. Work from home. Free breakfast, snacks, pantry always full of food to eat. Lots of fun activities.

    Cons

    Few egoistic guys who spoil the environment. Limited option to switch among projects as number of projects is low.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    So much is broken, that there is room to fix something - anything - and shine.

    Cons

    Sub par engineers, sub par junior/middle managers, sub par senior management. Sub par salary. Sub par work. Sub par benefits. Antiquated products. Behind the curve customers. No one seems to care. It's cute that they are headquartered in Silicon Valley. They are oblivious to silicon valley ethos.

    Advice to Management

    Keep milking the cash cow until you can. There are just so many things that are wrong, that It's unlikely you'll be able to turn this around.

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

    Pros

    1. Work Life Balance is great particularly for Engineering teams. 2. Lots of work from home, depends on team and manager. 3. Pay almost according to market. 4. Good opportunities to work on various innovative projects, if you wish to take initiative. 5. Business class air tickets on long haul flights, as per policy. (Manager dependent. Few managers ask to book only economy class)

    Cons

    1. Company going thorough lot of turbulence. First Intel acquired McAfee and re-branded it to Intel Security. At the same time Intel closed a lot of (profitable+not so profitable) products, resulting in lots of exits. Again Intel Security is made a private firm and renamed back to McAfee. Lot of folks are very worried about stability, appraisals and job security. (My primary reason of leaving) 2. Food at... Bangalore EGL office: Horrible, even after lots of vendor changes. Cafeterias are also very crowded. 3. Hardly one full day outings / team lunch/dinners in a year.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent to employees. Employees have a right to know what is going to happen once TPG acquisition is complete specially related to next year appraisals, job security, product road maps, etc. Vague answers to genuine questions create more confusion than clarity.
