    Pros

    Good people. Decent place to learn sales.

    Cons

    They are hiring younger and less experienced sales people for less money. A good fit for younger, might not be a great fit for more seasoned folks. Very high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Commit to your people and turnover might go down.

    I have been working at McAfee full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    We just had our sales kickoff in Las Vegas and it was laughable how bad most if not all of the management presentations were. One of the sales managers presentation was total fluff and totally lacking of any substance.

    Cons

    Ever since Intel took over all of the talented executive management left and went to other companies leaving behind the spares and bench warmers to run the company. It's pathetic at just how bad, inexperienced and immature so many of them are. They've made Intel Security a miserable place to work and people are leaving here quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in some new effective leadership or just shut the doors on this place

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

    Pros

    While working for McAfee, I had for the first time in my life (45 yrs old) the feeling of being with family. Especially, my direct supervisor. She was one of the best bosses I've ever had. From day 1, I felt welcomed. The team I was in, everybody was helping each other. Always there for each other, good or bad times. If you had questions or concerns, they seemed not to be bothered to answer, but quite the opposite, it looked like they really enjoyed helping or answering a question. I really do miss that awesome work family!!!

    Cons

    I was a contract employee. After Intel bought McAfee, there were some changes of course, but, some of that family feel seemed to be lost. Which wasn't that big of a loss, but, I got laid off right after the holidays by Intel. With no notice, no severance pay, nothing. Except for a see ya, have a good life, now get out!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Intel Upper, Upper management and Executives, not cool with how you let people go. I fully understand that I was a contract employee. But, a little compassion. When you have a spouse and 3 children at home, not giving any notice(which that I can understand, intellectual property and stuff), but no severance pay or package of any kind? C'mon, we al have families to support.
