Branding and Marketing Programs Intern (Current Employee), Santa Clara – September 16, 2013
Pros: free lunches, game room, 401k, club one workout center.
Cons: far commute to the office (santa clara).
- Everyday was different at McAfee, it is very high pace, high stress environment. I helped with entering in projects into the QuickBase queue and running the collateral through the process until completed. I often kept my department organized with creating many excel spreadsheets with information regarding many different aspects of the marketing programs – more... department. - I learned about how to conduct myself in a corporate environment. - My boss was truly fabulous and she often spent time teaching me every aspect of the job. This ultimately is what gave me an edge up from the other interns and landing me a job at McAfee. - The hardest part of the job was responding to unhappy clients when their project took longer than expected at the design agency. - The most enjoyable part of the job was working with my senior level team and gaining important knowledge for my future. – less
Senior Manager IIS Server Operations (Former Employee), Santa Clara California – August 24, 2013
I did not do my due diligence before coming on board with this company. It turned out there were executives in prison for back darting stocks. From my short time there I feel they were a 3000 person company executing like a startup.

McAfee is a great place to work. They are big on promoting within and have a comprehensive approach to security. I love selling McAfee solutions because I believe in them. When you work at McAfee, you are part of a family.

• A typical day at work consisted of setting meetings and closing deals • I learned endurance, perseverance and management skills • Management was pretty hands off • My co-workers were friendly and team oriented • The hardest part of the job was the current competition and my territory • What I liked most about the job was selling against some pretty – more... tough competition even though our price was higher – less
Web/Print Designer (Former Employee), Englewood, CO – June 7, 2013
Pros: compensation and benefits
Cons: dilbert comics will make a lot of sense
Divided into many divisions that often seem to compete with one another, you can expect typical big-company culture. Some people bust their tails working and some just skate by and get promoted. Compensation and benefits are great. Your experience would be completely dependent on who they put you with and which division you work in.

SENIOR MANAGER, WEB PRODUCTION (Former Employee), Santa Clara, CA – November 15, 2012
Pros: bonuses, time off, free soda, discounts, gym membership (on-site), and lots of company-wide activities.
Cons: very little oversight of managers, real mentoring is not available, not enough thought and time put into overall strategies.
McAfee is a great environment for getting things done. It is a very fast paced company. It was very easy to move forward with a project. The managers have high expectations and reward the best projects with additional bonuses. The company culture is hard to define because the management is in transition as there have been a lot of departures from normal – more... attrition to lay-offs. – less
Account Manager (Former Employee), Plano, TX – November 2, 2012
Pros: environment, people, free sodas, team events
Great ending point...if you are in the right role. Very high personality atmosphere. Great* managers, and not so great managers; as with any company, but McAfee will give you a chance to succeed and teach you a lot about how to sell, and work-ethic. You have to play by the game, but overall a solid company.
