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

    Pros

    Good work life balance, nice people

    Cons

    - Absolutely no vision and strategy changes with the wind - Management is mostly a glorified excel sheet and mostly cares about holding their jobs, not about actually building and improving the organization - Selling a extremely technical solution requires technical knowledge but this aspects seems to be completely overlooked and the training focus is on trivial stuff - Getting anything internal done requires a... lot of time and effort since there are no processes in place - Most of the best talent has left in the past couple of years so there has been a massive loss of institutional knowledge - Compensation model does not reflect the reality The culture itself feels like a cult. You are being told day in day out how McAfee is the number 1 cyber sec company in the world but the reality is something completely different. You are supposed to drink the Kool-aid, not bring up any lagging or negative aspects of the company. Start following the company around the web and you'll notice how most of the marketing revolves around how the CEO has been nominated by some obscure website as the "most innovative leader" and yet the company is falling apart.

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

    Pros

    they seem to be nice, also the Devil.

    Cons

    This is a long list: - The sales department is a nepotistic environment. You make the right friends you have a career. - Nobody cares about you, business or customers - "Leaders" (better puppets) don't have the skills and knowledge, and Culture. The funny story is that they don't care to improve. - No structure in the Sales Channel. Basically, It is not Sales. - No Vision. They think only Sales Quarter by... Sales Quarter. - No Strategy. They build Strategy following the wind. - No Culture. They want to build a culture but they don't have skills, knowledge, and interest in it. They don't see over their nose. - No Innovation. The incapacity is predominant from the front line management and above. They don't ask feedback, they don't want feedback and they are full of their ego.

    Advice to Management

    You cannot select cookers to manage people with an MBA. Cookers are great in the Kitchen. If this company wants to rise again has to wipe out all the middle and front line management. Be less political and nepotistic. Play soccer with the director it doesn't mean that you will be a good Sales Manager.

    Poor management such as no idea what they will be building or running Reluctant to positive change No incentive or career progression opportunity

    Advice to Management

    Spend less time in meeting on what to bring changes rather than ask fellow staffs Defined structure on how you'll reward the employees over time, not personal choice Focus less on hiring more numbers, rather priortize on existing talents
