Learned a few things from my coworkers but it's not a place it create a long career.

Insides Sales Account Manager Corporate (Current Employee)
Plano, TX

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

ConsHorrible 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 Senior ManagementFire 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Don't work in the IT department unless you are a politician.

    (Former Employee)
    Plano, TX

    I worked at McAfee


    Pros: Pay and benefits are OK. Good cafeteria. Cons: Specific to the IT department: 1. Most of the mid-level to senior level managers don't know what they are doing, and are terrible at evaluating talents.… Advice to Senior Management: Get rid of the middle management (senior managers to VP) in IT, start with a fresh batch. Otherwise, things will never change. You business is… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
