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.
North America Tier I Gold Support Manager (Former Employee), Plano, Texas – October 18, 2012
Pros: free sodas, a cafeteria down stairs, close to home
My last position required me to multi-task. I enjoyed it very much. I managed around 15 to 42 support technicians, team leads and product leads; managed the phone queues with the CMS and Avaya software; held team and one on one meetings; handled customer service issues related to support; provided reports on KPI metrics for senior management. In my – more... almost 11 years at McAfee, I've learned the products they offer, learned how to sell them, learned how to do field channel sales, learned how to manage people both remote and local. The hardest part of being a manager is having to terminate an employee. I enjoyed sales as well as managing people. – less
Executive Assistant to SVP/VP (Current Employee), Santa Clara, CA – July 23, 2012
Pros: great offsites and events
Cons: work, life, balance
The typical work day would consist of many executed projects and the ability to be smiling when done. I have learned how to be more productive in a fast paced environment and how to use my resources and time in a manner in which to save me time each and every day. My co-workers are all team players and I find that the more you help out your team the – more... more productive and successful a job can turn out in the end. The best part about a good day is helping others and yourself in succeeding every day and to see everyone else around you also happy with your efforts. – less
Enjoyable workplace with a wonderful array of co-workers
Project Coordinator (Current Employee), Plano, TX – June 29, 2012
I highly enjoy McAfee. I have learned a lot working here. McAfee is truly a wonderful place to work and grow. My co-workers are genuine and are like family. I am grateful for such a wonderful position with an incredible company.
Engineer (Former Employee), Plano, TX – February 24, 2012
Pros: good facilities, probably better than average pay
Cons: senior management, very weak 401k, mediocre health benefits
Sales and support are the only parts of McAfee that get the perks and have time to play in the company game rooms or use other facilities at different locations. Accounting/Finance/I.T. is usually under-manned and under-funded. The company tends to talk the good talk but if you follow the actions, they do not correlate.
