    I worked at McAfee full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There is always something new due to growth, M&A or market. Company invests in its people with training, mentorship and proper feedback. Compensation was excellent with really good benefits.

    Cons

    The M&A schedules can be ridiculously short and the under/over hiring plan flexes every year. Unfortunately due to M&A positions are eliminated every year. If your on the technology side the resources are mainly in India.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better hiring plan by Sales and Engineering would help with the annual RIF due to bad planning.

    I worked at McAfee

    Pros

    * Leaders are distributed over Geo's; so regular face-time is possible leading to strong personal relationships\\
    * Industry standard and better pay
    * Program Management Organisation is powerful and it's value well understood

    Cons

    * Personal growth may not happen automatically, one needs to perform well and then follow it up
    * Aquired by Intel. So repercussions are still coming to light

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * The impact that a company like McAfee has on the world, and the lives of millions does not come across strongly. Motivation and performance will improve automatically, if this message is re-inforved periodically, and visible at all times

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

    Pros

    McAfee is now part of Intel, what makes the experience much more interesting in terms of career development and also resume purposes

    Cons

    Depending on which department you work on, sometimes carrer development within the company is not that easy as they claim to be.
    Salaries are lower than similar companies, and promotions won't give you much more earnings

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should provide more support to their team members in terms of training to help them grow as professionals.

    Pros

    Outstanding benefits, great culture, exciting technology!

    Cons

    Typical corporate stuff, but nothing unusual or systematic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe loosen the reins a little on the spending. We work pretty hard here, and mostly for love of the business itself. Cost controls are important, but maybe try to have a little more of a buffer.
