A political environment reminiscent of the Soviet Politburo

Pros

Comp package was good. Flexible tele-commute policy, ESPP and time off all positive.

Cons

Acquisition integration plan pretty weak with much confusion and hilarity the norm. As the product portfolio expands there doesn't seem to be an effective method to ensure the sales team embraces the full scope of offerings. Significant competition internally just to get sales teams to focus on different products and many groups within the company are cliquey. As mentioned in multiple other posts, there is a constant fear of RIF that permeates the workforce.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

360 Degree Review for your Director and above leadership might help pinpoint some of the shortcomings. Leadership team should have bonus components tied to favorable employee feedback.

    Pros

    Freedom to work on lots of projects. Given ample time to develop and to research ideas that would be good to offer the market place.

    Cons

    McAfee's leadership is not transparent in what is going on. Much of the time you can find out what happens by listening to analysts on wall street than for actually working for the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should be more transparent in what they are going to do and have a clear roadmap that is given to all employees. Management should also focus on not being so ambiguous when describing this roadmap.

    Pros

    Company direction and flexibility seem generally good. Benefits are above average. Employee stock purchase program, stock option grants, and restricted stock unit grants are very welcome benefits.

    Cons

    No 401k match currently. Some problems communicating between groups and divisions. Near complete hiring freeze means higher than usual work load and little room for advancement. Hard to work on anything truly new for most people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your employees interested. Don't leave them to stagnate. Help them advance their careers.
