    I worked at McAfee full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Global and well recognized brand
    Free coffee/tea/drinks everyday and breakfast on Thursdays
    Nice cafeteria, office space, and cubicles
    Big budget to create with
    CEO's are wonderful, personable, and easy to talk to

    Cons

    Management is very old school, the complete opposite of a flat organization
    A lot of politics, red tape, and the company doesn't feel like it's innovating
    You will have meetings about meetings, and projects and decisions happen very slowly
    Difficult to work cross-functionally

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open to the ideas of those below you. Managers should be required to take leadership courses. Stay up to date with emerging trends. Need better information flow across departments.
