The pay is good, but at what price?

Account Executive (Current Employee)

ProsThe pay is great, with spiffs that can earn you hefty bonuses. I have seen people earn spiffs of up to $20K if they made their number 2 quarters in a row.

ConsExtreme pressure to perform. They really don't care about you as a person; just about your numbers. I know this is true of most sales jobs, but it got to a point where the job just wasn't fun anymore.

Advice to Senior ManagementMaybe if your employees felt like they mattered, they would be more inclined to give 120%. Calling employees on Sunday mornings is also a big no-no.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Do not go to McAfee if you are looking to make a career. The company is just a stepping stone to other opportunities.
