Current Employee - Marketing Manager  in  Santa Clara, CA
Current Employee - Marketing Manager in Santa Clara, CA

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

Pros

Relatively stable, easy place to work

Cons

Slow to change, slow to respond to market dynamics
Obvious "good ole boy" system in effect
If you're not in sales, you're going no where fast.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get out of the way and allow individual contributors to make decisions.
Adjust compensation plans to be more equitable across business functions. Product management and marketing and just as critical as sales YET sales is comped at an extraordinarily high level.

Doesn't Recommend

Disapproves of CEO
