Pros

My manager is the best I have ever worked for.

Cons

Consultants are treated as "lesser beings" sometimes. We have to know our place, or don't last long.

Advice to Management

Consultants are people too.

    Pros

    It can be a fun place to work at times. There are company functions that bring employees together. Great people to work with.

    Cons

    McAfee's sales vision and strategy changes from year to year with no rhyme or reason. When things are working, they change it. When things are not, they don't. The most discouraging part is the quota setting. It's almost like they take a dart and throw it to a board and boom, there is your quota.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your sales reps.


  2. This is a sales driven company, expect innovation driven by sales.

    Pros

    Fairly relaxed environment for engineers with stocked pantries. Innovation wise, they let you do what you want, but on your own time. People are open to new POCs and suggestions. You can work independently and management do not micro manage.

    Cons

    Below average pay range for engineers in the valley. Senior management are resistant to change. Thankfully, new architects and PMs recognize issues of change resistance. A few of the engineers here can't really work independently, thus constant hand holding becomes part of your job scope.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace change. Be radical about it. Try unproven methods.
