Pros

Managers and management hear you out. They are open about problems that arise, and need to be dealt with. You will get the time and resources to solve challenging problems.

Cons

Management decision making takes a long time. It may take a while to get the resources you need. However, all things necessary and urgent are given due priority.

    Pros

    One of the leaders in security. There are some good people you get to work with and most of them care about the quality of product

    Cons

    Most of the action is at the main office and in a satellite office you tend to be a bit disassociated with the rest of the company. It is mainly a sales driven company and not an engineering driven company

    Pros

    Some cool, friendly and smart co-workers, plus they offer free sodas.

    Cons

    Horrible workplace environment, terrible boiler room like pods with low walls that allow for no privacy or professionalism. People there especially the inside sales managers have no professional etiquette and wil stand over you distracting you trying to get you off the phone so that they can disturb you with something unimportant. That's pretty nifty especially when your job is phone sales. If you have no technology industry experience it's a good place to get your foot in the door. They love to hire the incompetent and then promote them to management. But if you don't get promoted within 2 years get out and go somewhere else for more money because it means you're doing your job too well mad like I said before McAfee likes to promote the incompetent. Compensation is much higher at many McAfee competitors in the area and the workplace environment is more professional. My manager spends most of his days walking around drinking coffee and socializing with the other managers and contributing nothing to his own paycheck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire all the inside sales management in Plano and start over from scratch. They're playing a numbers game to make themselves look good but have no clue on how to really lead.
