    Pros

    Great location, great pay, great work environment, free fruit every day, free coffee and soft drinks, regular bonuses.

    Promotion options a bit limited due to the size of the office. To move on an employee may have to move to another McAfee location.

    Advice to Management

    No particular advice as the management try to keep their employees engaged, and are always approachable. Keep up the good work!!

    Design better GTM execution plan by aligning both of sales and marketing efforts.

    Support management focused on achieving their goals and bonuses at the cost of staff moral.

    Promised so much and dramatically ground down by poor management attitude

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your staff they are the profit earners not the management
    To many mid level management focusing on bonuses not staff moral who if happy will deliver top service

    One should understand that even the contractual employees are human beings and they give almost same deliverable as a permanent one.
    then why treating @contract employees as just use-and-throw-pen
