Pros

The 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.

Cons

Extreme 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 ManagementAdvice

Maybe 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.

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

    I worked at McAfee

    Pros

    Mcafee has very good products and a great set of internal Support Engineers. Mcafee has a great benefits package. The employees there are a close knit family. Senior Management very competent but dealing with huge changes due to upper Executive changes that were made end of 07. Did I say they have great benefits?

    Cons

    Employees not given carrer path for advancement. They don't look within for promotions. Knee Jerk Changes with no regards to how it impacts employees mentally nor monetarily. The systems at Mcafee are lacking in making sure employees are paid correctly. Finance unaccountable for communicating wages expected and when people will get paid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a better job taking care of current employees
