Smart and aggressive leaders, solid technology, weak on employee recognition.

Product Development (Current Employee)
Beaverton, OR

ProsVery aggressive and competitive when it comes to marketing and sales. Smart acquisitions and rapidly improving ability to integrate them. Generally an expectation that McAfee should be able to compete with the largest of competitors, and support of proposals that offer a path to get there.

ConsLack of internal career paths and professional development, with an old school mentality of seniority rather than meritocracy. There is virtually no discussion of the gaps that people need to overcome in order to achieve the next level. While there is a keen focus on key indicators and metrics, there seems to be a reluctance to walk away from products and business areas that just are not executing to plan. Salary and bonus start competitive, but raises seem to be weak.

Advice to Senior ManagementChallenge people managers to set promotion goals for their staff and measure them on this. There seems to be no expectation that, once hired, people will or should develop and grow.
