    Pros

    McAfee or Intel Security as it is now is a great company to work for. A leader in it's field and now with the financial backing and R&D might of Intel to make the products truly integrated

    Cons

    The advantages of being part of Intel are also the cons....McAfee under Dave DeWalt was an innovative sales and marketing machine that was the master of it's own universe. Since the take over McAfee has become a very small piece of the very big and slow moving Intel. If you join you are 1:100,000......

    Advice to Management

    Intel Management allow McAfee to stand on it's own two feet interms of the way it runs and bring it back to the dynamic company it used to be!

    Listen to your employees and live in there's shoes for a moment. Pressure on all side but we get diamonds!

    Pros

    Very flexible with schedule, great work life balance

    Cons

    The culture is good but if you're not in good with other people you can be left to the side. You have to put on a good act, not cause drama and kiss butt. Communication is poor from upper management so unfortunately there is some guesswork.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication, more opportunities for training and advancement.

    Pros

    - Great place to intern or to jumpstart to your career
    - Regularly host company events
    - Well-priced food in the cafeteria
    - Flexible with employee schedules outside of work
    - Thursday free donuts and bagels

    Cons

    - Management tends to throw responsibilities over the wall to agencies, contractors, and interns
    - High demand for clear ROI on marketing campaigns, but little guidance as to goals or measurement
    - Constant firedrill scenarios
    - High competition/low communication between overlapping groups
    - Unclear merge with parent company

    Advice to Management

    More clearly define growth paths for young employees to give incentive to stay longer. Accountability should be a focus, both on the side of the management and those reporting to them. Open dialogue with Intel counterparts and leadership a must.

    Pros

    Flexible timing
    Big name in industry

    Cons

    Too much politics.
    Too much manual testing in QA side
    No trainings
    Old people in team involved in too much politics

    Advice to Management

    McAfee should reshuffle old people in team who are more than 5 years in same team. They have made his own group and not giving any chance to grow new people. Also some people are very poor in technical.
