Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Great Technology. Good brand recognition.

Cons

Very bad management style in Revenue Accounting
No work life balance

Advice to Management

Management training key to making this a good place to work. Communication can be improved. Departments work in Silos. No career paths for mid-level management. Few promotions from within. CFO average life at MFE is about 1 year?

    No opinion of CEO

    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 Management

    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 Management

    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.
