Good Place to get your start... but...

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

I worked at McAfee full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Free soft drinks, good place for someone to get their start in IT sales. Good health benefits, and PTO (when they let you take it) Lot's of great people stuck there though... Good products

Cons

Executive management are some of the worst humans you will ever meet.
While they stress work life management you WILL be working Christmas eve and the day after
Can't get promoted without being part of the "bros" club, or a girl with lose morals.
Very low pay for industry...
Spends money on stupid things like lavish parties with private concerts with rock stars.
One of the most bloated top heavy companies I have ever heard of...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire about 90% of upper and middle management, starting with that rat they call a leader.

Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at McAfee full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Compensation, investment in training, relaxed culture.

    Cons

    Leadership in IT needs serious overhaul. Promotions are not based on merit or accomplishments but rather favoritism and politics. First place to take a closer look are the groups where multiple people leave same manager.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
