Good technology but poor management

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Bangalore

I have been working at McAfee full-time

Pros1. The products are best in the market.
2. Talented pool of people around to work with

ConsWhere do I begin with.. The company seems to be directionless these days.. Management is only concerned on how to push quarter after quarter.. some times appears whether it has any vision?

I think overall the motivation of the employees dipped. and then aggressive cost cutting..

May be thats what happen when the company is given with almost impossible target by a parent company.

Advice to Senior ManagementGuys, you have great bunch of people.. please offer something better than MBO goals to motivate them with

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
