Fair compensation with a company that spreads you very thin

Current Employee - Inside Sales Representative in Plano, TX
Current Employee - Inside Sales Representative in Plano, TX

I have been working at McAfee full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Good pay and benefits. It's nice that they offered extravagant president clubs, but the people that deserve to go don't always get to. They have a weird, call it arbitrary way of deciding who goes and who doesn't.

Cons

Lots of work. So much so that other departments also show this stress, in way of giving you pushback and doing their own job. Consider the workload before making a long term commitment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management is just that, count the heads and count the dials. Not much in way of leadership, helping you grow as a sales rep.

    Current Employee - Inside Sales Account Manager in Dallas, TX
    Current Employee - Inside Sales Account Manager in Dallas, TX

    I have been working at McAfee full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Small teams divided into verticals.
    Strong team management.
    On-site cafeteria.

    Cons

    Every January they laid-off employees at higher salaries. Then, a month later, a whole team of employees in the same position would be hired. This was not based on merit. It didn't matter if you made your numbers or not. In fact, many sales account managers at the top of their game were laid off. This was fear inducing to the staff and made management look like they were constantly being hounded by upper management in ways to save the company money. Disheartening.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your employees who are making their numbers. Don't toss them aside for a new round of employees that you can hire at lower base salaries b/c all of the employees do see what you're doing and it only makes you look like you disrespect your teams.

    I have been working at McAfee full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Smart people, challenging work, passion for customers. Financially conservative as a company. Generous to those who perform. Acquisition by Intel a major win -- deep pockets, long-term view.

    Cons

    Very lean; tend to overload their best and brightest. Marketing focused on lead-generation over long-term customer advocacy and experience focsu, though with new CMO that may change.
