    Potentially a good opportunity, but make sure you (and your management) are aligned politically with executive staff.

    Sales (Former Employee)

    ProsA lot of products to sell - many of which are market-leading solutions.

    ConsI perceive a deep lack of clarity and focus within the sales ranks.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMcAfee sales org has a great many very skilled individuals that are not being heard and appear to be disconnected. I would recommend you listen to them as they could hold the key to strong future growth and returns for the company.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Senior Manager (Former Employee) Portland, OR (US)

    ProsCutting edge of security technologies and people that worked in engineering to deliver for both the customers and shareholders.
