Pros

software and soltions are super good

Cons

EMEA leader does inappropriate behaviour with some staff and thus abuses his position. This includes inapproriate visits to clubs and services. This is not good example to employees adn female empliyees in particualr feel insulted. HR EMEA is proetcting the EMEA leader.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Intel should change EMEA leader and clean up the management. Otherwise Intel seems to support such behaviour.

    Pros

    They pay reasonably well, that's about it.

    Cons

    - Top management is a gang of overly arrogant US-centric teenagers who know nothing about business development and specifically international expansions;
    - The arrogant pushy revenue-driven culture is cascaded top down every day. The hierarchy is strict - you either obey or you're out.
    - McAfee is very cost savvy, and this is the reason they have just a few people doing the work of hundreds. Crazy overtime.
    - The president of EMEA is a jerk who shouts at employees using dirty words;
    - The company CEO is a person without any relevant education or leadership talent but with very high self-esteem (not grounded at all).
    - If you're developing business in a certain geogra[hy, forget about budgets and investments - they'll expect you to run around and do all the dirty work yourself, basically be the "fixer" for everything.
    - No performance appraisal, no salary indexation, very non-transparent bonus schemes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go get an MBA and a behaviour training.

    Pros

    Here are some of the pros. Can be totally different in other persons experience.
    Good Pay
    Brand Value
    Work Life Balance. Depends on the project schedule and team.
    Lot of initiative to improve work environment
    Opportunities to follow career aspirations

    Cons

    Not many cons according to me but still listing some here.
    Internal politics. People tend to favor long timers. Can't grow fast enough even if you have the potential.
    Slow processes and higher management is less supportive in creating skill based career paths.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    McAfee can improve the way we perceive expertise. Higher management should support employees to go for specialization instead of making everyone Jack of all trades.
