    Former Employee - Director in Plano, TX (US)

    I worked at McAfee full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There is always something new due to growth, M&A or market. Company invests in its people with training, mentorship and proper feedback. Compensation was excellent with really good benefits.

    Cons

    The M&A schedules can be ridiculously short and the under/over hiring plan flexes every year. Unfortunately due to M&A positions are eliminated every year. If your on the technology side the resources are mainly in India.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better hiring plan by Sales and Engineering would help with the annual RIF due to bad planning.

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

    Pros

    McAfee is now part of Intel, what makes the experience much more interesting in terms of career development and also resume purposes

    Cons

    Depending on which department you work on, sometimes carrer development within the company is not that easy as they claim to be.
    Salaries are lower than similar companies, and promotions won't give you much more earnings

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should provide more support to their team members in terms of training to help them grow as professionals.

    I have been working at McAfee

    Pros

    Outstanding benefits, great culture, exciting technology!

    Cons

    Typical corporate stuff, but nothing unusual or systematic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe loosen the reins a little on the spending. We work pretty hard here, and mostly for love of the business itself. Cost controls are important, but maybe try to have a little more of a buffer.

    Pros

    Nice selection of holidays to take time off

    Cons

    Managers don't help. They sit around with each other screwing around a lot, telling jokes and making a stressful workplace even worse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Intel should lay off most of the existing inside sales management and promote people who really want to work and contribute to the company and their paycheck

    Doesn't Recommend
