    Current Employee - Marketing Manager in Santa Clara, CA (US)

    I have been working at McAfee full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Relatively stable, easy place to work

    Cons

    Slow to change, slow to respond to market dynamics
    Obvious "good ole boy" system in effect
    If you're not in sales, you're going no where fast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of the way and allow individual contributors to make decisions.
    Adjust compensation plans to be more equitable across business functions. Product management and marketing and just as critical as sales YET sales is comped at an extraordinarily high level.

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

    Pros

    -Work is good
    -More opportunity for self-learning
    -competitive work
    -working on latest industry trends and technology

    Cons

    -Extremely pathetic work culture
    -Always extended working hours
    -Most of the work starts at evening hours in India when US people come online
    -Indian managers will always push employees to work ASAP and respond latenight
    -Mangers give work only to those who work and no balance in team at all
    -Variable calculation is disgusting, even if you have given 100% there are chances they may pay you 50% as company's performance frequently goes down
    -You will hardly get any salary hike
    -India leadership management is just inefficient;he is heading simply because he is the eldest employee in MIC bangalore who lacks how to talk to employees
    -Once you get into company witha salary say X thats it.it never grows.
    -Managers never motivate..nor say any encouraging word to employees.absolutely zero motivation
    -Management adopts use and throw policy for employees
    -In 2008 McAfee strength was 7000 and in 2012 its approx 7100.So, you can imagine the growth. Frequent firing of employees and high attrition rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Change India management completely.
    -Give salary at par the product industry
    -Encourage and motivate employees
    -Stop believing in use and throw concept of employees.
    -value employees as your assets.
    -Provide growth path for employees
    -Train your managers about technology and management.
