    I have been working at McAfee full-time

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Where 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 ManagementAdvice

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