    I worked at McAfee full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good people, good salaries comp and benefits under Intel. Not if they are as good under McAfee.

    Cons

    Dont take a greenfield sales territory. You need existing customers with EPO to upsell. Very hard to convince a customer to rip and replace their existing endpoint product as this is a large and complicated undertaking.

    Advice to Management

    Get all your products integrated

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

    Pros

    This is a big company with lots of support
    Pay is decent

    Cons

    Focus switches from one direction to another
    Greenfield account focus, with almost no support
    Product issues with most customers

    Advice to Management

    Put a program in place, and fully support, and see it to fruition
    You can't divide and subdivide verticals and territories, and just expect to grow results, indefinitely. Focus more on your support functions to keep customers happy.

    I worked at McAfee full-time

    Pros

    Competitive salary and good work-life balance

    The move to being a private company is causing some instabilty in direction, but not unexpected with such a move.

    I worked at McAfee full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Most areas promote a solid work-life balance. Working to help secure consumers and companies provides a sense of contributing more to just the McAfee bottom line.

    Cons

    There appears to be a short-sightedness to the leadership team that has taken away from the once team-oriented feeling around the company.

    Advice to Management

    Move quickly to go public once again - until then, things will likely get a little worse before they get better.

    Pros

    Established F500 customers with existing accounts so product is known in marketplace.

    Still developing processes which means delays are inherent in pushing deals through systems. They are still struggling with Diversity and Inclusion. They are creating a new culture that is not making it's way through the ranks.
