    I have been working at McAfee full-time

    Pros

    They pay you a salary...

    Cons

    Used to be a good workplace, but when private equity took over many new execs were brought in and many into roles they aren’t qualified for... VPs of engineering that were product managers. Many Long term solid employees were fired over time and some in horrible manner. Some because the new people were threatened by the core people that were with mcafee for the entire journey. Super sad situation.. . I’m glad... to be gone and I know many others are also. Toxic environment and it’s painful to watch the new people play politics and pretend they have a clue

    Advice to Management

    CLEAN HOUSE! Try to extend an olive branch to the people that knew the business and god you to where you were. Also take a long hard look at the new execs and see if they are qualified for it OR if they are there simply because they “know someone”...
