Pros

People and work experience are at the top of the list. The quotas were not set up to reward performance. If it wasn't for those reasons, I would have left sooner.

Cons

Everything. The management there was clueless and didn't know how to make quotas for the sales field. Everything was set up to fail.

Advice to Management

Get a clue. Take a management course and learn how to work with employees. Structure comp plans accordingly and you'll lose less people.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    It is possible to make good money at McAfee. There are some talented people working there. Some of their products are market leaders.

    Cons

    Senior management has no accountability. Change of focus and direction throwing the entire organization into chaos happens often. Regardless of performance it is difficult to advance unless you have connections to senior management. Benefits are below average.

    Advice to Management

    Intel needs to move in and take over day to day management.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good pay, great management, positive changes, good benefits, flexible work schedule, investment in training

    Cons

    So much to do that you end up feeling the need to work a lot of hours to be succesful. Hard to get promoted even if you are getting stellar ratings.

    Advice to Management

    Make tough deisions to let people go that aren't even meeting minimum goals, seems unfair to others. Get the right amount of people for the job, unrealistic expectations wear on people when they can't succeed.
