Manager (Former Employee) –  Plano, TX12 July 2019
McAfee is currently being run by leaders who value their reward if they can sell or take the company public. Employee well being is an after thought. Dedication and commitment by employees is not rewarded or valued. Lots of lip service is given to caring for employees, but the truth is that you are just a number and expendable.

Hiring from outside is also a problem. New leaders are being brought in at a quick rate and they are making poor decisions prior to learning the customers and opportunities that exist.

Their mission is a noble one, but their values are not being honored and that for me is a problem. I hope they turn back and remember the dedicated employees who got them to where they are today and start doing right by them. Hire leaders, not bosses; listen to ideas, not assume you know best; and treat employees with respect.

Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CA21 June 2019
McAfee has changed a lot! It was a great place to work, but now so many changes and good people have left. It’s not sustainable and no communications. There is no sense of team unity.
Pros
Flexible schedule, unlimited vacation, great medical benefits
Cons
No team players, no room growth. No sense of security

Hard work supporting complex products.
Associate Technical Support Engineer (Current Employee) –  Plano, TX18 June 2019
The software is simple enough, but it can be tricky getting all the moving parts aligned properly. Work can be grueling at times, but the pay and benefits are outstanding.

Great place to work without loyalty to their employees.
Systems Analyst (Former Employee) –  Humble, TX11 June 2019
Flexible on telecommuting, good workplace culture, excellent co-workers, high management does not deliver on loyalty promises. Years of service mean nothing when no longer needed.

Best company I've ever worked for....
Learning Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Texas10 June 2019
I love my job and would prefer to stay on as long as possible, however I also know that every job is expendable and change is constant, so thus the reason I am updating and posting my resume.

Limited Mobility and Vision
Manager of Professional Services (Former Employee) –  N/A7 June 2019
McAfee is severely limited in career path options and movement within the company. The vision there was very rigid and became difficult to work toward.

looks great with lots off promises
Technical Support (Current Employee) –  Plano, TX16 May 2019
working at support for McAfee is like going to the dentist. you know you have to go but don't want to.
first 6 months or so are the worst. imagine going to work every day and before you press your badge to the door saying a little prayer that the door will open again for the day and that you still have a job
Pros
a paycheck
Cons
always wondering will you have a job tommorow

Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  Santa Clara, CA3 April 2019
Lots of different technologies to learn. Too many meetings. Too many re-orgs. Good engineers who are willing to share knowledge, varied technology stack.

Everything is good except work/life balance
Product Marketing Manager (Current Employee) –  Santa Clara, CA27 March 2019
Single parents will find it tough to manage the schedule here due to lack of work from home options. You do get unlimited PTO which is nice, but that may vary from managers.

I was able to solve complex problems
Risk & Strategy Specialist (Former Employee) –  Plano, TX27 February 2019
I was tasked with solving complex problems related to cyber security. I was given the freedom to solve the problems without micro-management. The solutions were generally well-received by management.

Productive and comfortable place to work with great teams
technical writer (Current Employee) –  Cordoba, Argentina11 February 2019
The relaxed-tense combination plus a kind and respectful atmosphere create a good working environment. The engineering team make a group of kind and respectful people that you feel comfortable enough to present a problem and find a solution as a team.

McAfee was great. New ownership is interesting
Commercial Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Wilmington, MA24 January 2019
I had a great experience with McAfee. While being part of a large company, the management did a great job of building a team culture and making the company feel "small," which kept the team focused on team goals, which were part of the larger corporate objectives.
Pros
Great group of people on the team
Cons
Acquired by a private equity firm

Still trying to find itself
Program Director (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CA23 January 2019
Even though it's an old company, it's still forming and there are many rough patches. Great leadership in the CEO, but the workforce directly below and out through the tentacles are not structured well.

Productive and enjoyable work environment fostering teamwork. Ping-pong table available.

Daily calls and remote sessions with Enterprise level customers, including DoD and banks, and their IT staff during working hours and after-hours for sometimes high severity issues, resolving them as quickly as possible.
Pros
Great customers and employees are mostly all great to work with
Cons
Tier 3 occassionally gave "push-back" with rhetorical responses.

Be Aware
Manager, Global Business Resiliency (Current Employee) –  Plano, TX23 December 2018
A very questionable place to work. People backstab and protect their territory and look out only for themselves. I would be careful with the company for your career.
Pros
not much to say
Cons
low pay and not compansated well unless you are senior management
