      Pros

      If you work on a good product you get to work with different industry integrations for important security technologies.

      Cons

      Difficult to gain experience outside of the technology you support. Managers hate letting you go if you're half way competent and some will actively stop you from transferring out to different teams. Supporting the same product(s) day in and out can also be a bit boring sometimes, though you definitely learn them properly.

      Could set your calendar to the regular lay offs.

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Salary Flexibility Work life balance. Not much else to be honest.

      Cons

      Massive job insecurity. Every year without fail since separating from Intel in 2017 mcafee has had major layoffs in January and occasionally in July. Unless your role is in India it's likely you have a target on your back as huge growth in low cost staffing is driving cost saving efforts and the shift to India. Office closures and downsizing just about every location apart from India. McAfee tries be diverse to its detriment, often publicly highlighting work done in these areas. The downside to this is often weaker candidates are hired to meet diverse criteria and even stronger employees let go during restructuring under the guise of being diverse.
