    Current Employee - Marketing Manager in Santa Clara, CA (US)

    I have been working at McAfee full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Relatively stable, easy place to work

    Cons

    Slow to change, slow to respond to market dynamics
    Obvious "good ole boy" system in effect
    If you're not in sales, you're going no where fast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of the way and allow individual contributors to make decisions.
    Adjust compensation plans to be more equitable across business functions. Product management and marketing and just as critical as sales YET sales is comped at an extraordinarily high level.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Structure/hierarchy
    Product management
    Not an open environment
    Too much hierarchy
    Not enough involvement of subordinates

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be a better plan for how the products are launched, what the long-term goals are and how to increase brand awareness needs to be increased. It would be great to have marketing really work "together" versus as their own micro businesses and really understand the market versus reacting.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
