Manager (Current Employee) – Plano, TX – April 24, 2018
McAfee recently spun off of Intel with new management and it is totally different from the old McAfee prior to Intel. Micro-managment from the top down, no trusting their employees, continually taking away benefits and lack of advancement. People are being laid off and leaving on their own due to management.
unlimited PTO, currently free drinks and some food
poor management, lack of advancement, lots of turnover
Great place to work, but recent changes brought instability

Great place to work, but recent changes brought instability that leaves fear in ability to advance career. Management across teams are not aligned in creating balance for company and consumers, creating further conflict.
Account Manager (Current Employee) – New England – February 1, 2018
This organization, from a go to market strategy, just can not seem to get it together. In 3 fiscal years, there have been 3 sales strategies and they still have not figured it out and I have had 3 managers. The culture now that TPG has bought a %51 stake in the company, is deteriorating. Marketing lacks and the channel program is truly fulfillment only. There definitely is a culture of the good old boys/girls club as managers play favorites.
Decent benefits, decent products, people are overall good to work with
Sr. Account Executive (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – January 24, 2018
Although going through turbulence of spinning out of Intel, McAfee is definately on the right road and doing all the right things to grow their business, improve their security product offerings and increase customer satisfaction.
Great People, great products
some management changes due to evolution of the company
What company cannot foresee a layoff only 6 months out?

Just avoid this place unless you're ok with being laid off with a batch of other great people not long after you are hired, work your butt off and prove your value. The method of layoff was incredibly cruel and insincere, too.

Poor planning, oversight, and general performance of the "leadership" have led to an overall decline in quality of life here at McAfee. McAfee, prior to the Intel takeover, was a fantastic place to work with few complaints throughout the organization. At this point I'd recommend seeing what else is out there before jumping on the Intel/McAfee bandwagon.

McAfee made healthy living a priority by offering a free healthy living program. They used to also conduct fitness challenges to motivate employees to get up and move (prizes and drawings awarded to participants).
