Unstable, but promising
IT Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Plano, TXOctober 1, 2018
The company is focusing on preparing to go public and most resources are focused on that effort. Projects have been canceled and layoffs have occurred. Many controls are relaxed or non-existent due to lack of intellectual properties after the Intel spinoff.
Pros
Flexible hours, great benefits, many great people and great potential.
Cons
Overworked associates, loose controls, subjective reporting, confusing management direction.

Cyber Security Engineer (Former Employee) –  Plano, TXSeptember 12, 2018
They don't care anymore.
They were bought out by a private equity firm and it's just become H*ll for any of the workers. Nobody's happy and everyone is throwing each other under the bus =(

The culture is very childish in that there are too many inside sales reps located in the same place which leads to a very loud and obnoxious environment.
Pros
There are none that I can think of
Cons
Too stressful an environment

New changes
Technical Support Engineer (Current Employee) –  Plano, TXSeptember 4, 2018
The culture and the people are great. Management is horrible.

Changes made by upper management do not make any sense and it's obvious they knew nothing about any of the people working for them when they made organizational changes.

They consistently reward those that shouldn't be and overlook those that should be. Essentially people who are not good at their jobs are rewarded, and they consistently take work from non-productive employees and dump it on the those actually doing their jobs.

There are really good managers, but unfortunately they are surrounded by other managers that are not.

Don't plan on getting promoted unless you are part of the "buddy system".

Management attitude is that they could care less for any of their employees which translates to poor employee attitude.

Main reason for staying are co-workers. There are some very talented people here. They all have great personalities that unfortunately now have poor attitudes because they are unappreciated and overworked.
Pros
Unlimited PTO, Good health benefits.
Cons
Good people are underpaid, bad people are overpaid

Analyst II (Former Employee) –  Plano, TXMay 9, 2018
A typical work day answering client questions via email and client meetings, preparing aging for client meetings. Day to day I work in excel and our ERP systems.

The work culture is great with a good balance of work life.

The hardest part of my job is getting here.

The enjoyable is my co-workers.

Poor Management
Manager (Current Employee) –  Plano, TXApril 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.
Pros
unlimited PTO, currently free drinks and some food
Cons
poor management, lack of advancement, lots of turnover

Executive Customer Assistance Team (Current Employee) –  Plano, TXApril 5, 2018
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.

Prior to the integration into Intel, McAfee was a great place to work After the divestiture from Intel, McAfee is struggling to keep up with the demands of becoming a stand alone company.

Marketing, IT, and Sales activities (Former Employee) –  Home BasedFebruary 15, 2018
McAfee was OK for sales as an Enterprise rep calling on CIO/CISO.

What was not good was roles outside of the Enterprise Sales were challenging. So my time as OEM Sales and Siemens Sales were challenging.
Pros
Salary
Cons
Support of roles outside of Enterprise Sales

Review
Account Manager (Current Employee) –  New EnglandFebruary 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.
Pros
Decent benefits, decent products, people are overall good to work with
Cons

Senior Software Development Engineer in Test (Current Employee) –  Hillsboro, ORJanuary 26, 2018
Good company with lots of room for growth now that it is stable again. It was previously under the umbrella of Intel Security and has now moved to be its own company once again.
