Poor Management, Poor Time Management Skills, Horrible Communication
Web Analyst (Former Employee) –  Saint Paul, MNAugust 1, 2017
Mediocre managers, focused on wrong priorities.
Working remote is great for those who like me are able to self discipline
Manager worries too much about useless matters and wastes so much time talking about the same things over and over, instead of letting us actual work
Pros
Remote Work allows for relaxed work environment, void of usual office distractions
Cons
Horrible management and communication

They do not value long term employees.
Manager, Process Engineering (Former Employee) –  Plano, TXJuly 29, 2017
They do not value their employees. They have good benefits and pay but the "new" McAfee management doesn't value the employees the way the previous team did. It was hard to get projects approved then once they were approved, they expected them to be done with the original timeline even if the approval delayed the start.
Pros
Free donuts.
Cons
Lack of communication from executives.

Account Manager (GOV/ED ISR) (Former Employee) –  Plano, TXJuly 27, 2017
Working for McAfee was one of the greatest experiences of my professional career. You could not asked for a more dedicated team, than the GHE Inside Division. If your agency's security initiatives are a top priority, or if you struggle with prioitizing how to manage more responsibilities with less resources (that's also married to decreasing budgets), & maintain your environment's protection from increasingly sophisticated attacks, then reach out to this team.

Together Is Power!

Great Company, Not a ton of Security
Marketing (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAJuly 26, 2017
I worked for McAfee for many years. The people they bring on are some of the best with lots of expertise.

Work life balance was harder here, getting promoted was also difficult often hiring outside the company for highier up positions.

While I was there I had 7 managers, and survived 4 rounds of layoffs.
Pros
people, office is nice, lunch is cheaper than eating out
Cons
lack of promoting within, layoff rounds

Receptionist/Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Oklahoma City, OKJuly 25, 2017
Management is phenomenal, can't beat the benefits... also, the work culture is fantastic-- I love every person I work with. M&T is always striving for success and giving people the best representation they can possibly give. High standards exist but they also are understanding and patient.
