Topics regarding layoffs at McAfee

Toxic environment

Very toxic management environment, long hours, not respecting time zones. It's a shame the bad bosses do not move, lots of politics. Salaries are good. If you have a choice look elsewhere.

McAfee and FireEye - Disaster

I will caveat this with the fact it is from the McAfee rumour mill but isn't that where we get our info? However there are cuts coming....again. Do we ever get a break from looking over our shoulders so we can actually work (laser focus.... good one... —  read more 

McAfee Enterprise Equity?

For McAfee Enterprise employees will pre-ipo equity be distributed? Does STG have any track record of doing this with the 20+ other companies they have acquired? Would this not occur until after fire eye is acquired and merged?

Is now the time to leave?

Don't know if I should see how this plays out or make the jump. I have only been here for a little over a year, but I'm wondering if I should get out now. It feels like McAfee would make that decision for me after the acquisition is complete.

Good/bad move?

Unfortunately, it will certainly bring layoffs, but I am interested in what you think about the sale of enterprise business to Symphony? Is it a good move for McAfee or yet another debacle? I wonder what the results of this move will be, apart from... —  read more 

There's no winning at McAfee

Work environment here is completely and utterly messed up. We have layoffs all the time and we have to stress about that non-stop. But even when a round is done and we're still here we can't celebrate. Now we have to do extra work to cover what those... —  read more 

Now's the time

With more layoffs on the way, now is the perfect time to start looking for a new job. And trust me (since I've done both before,) it is so much easier to look for a job when you're already employed then after you've been laid off. But if you don't... —  read more

Get out while you can

If you're a software engineer, your days here are numbered. Go and look at openings for software engineers at Notice something? Almost 90 percent of available positions are in India. And guess who they're replacing? This has been... —  read more 

Build a safety net

A colleague told me this shortly after I started - build a safety net. After I survived my first round of layoffs I understood what he meant. I’m still here but for how long - I don’t know. I don’t enjoy knowing that the fate of my employment lies... —  read more 

Layoffs every year

I worked there for 9 years and only just recently moved to a different company. While I was there I saw layoffs at least once every year. Some years bigger than others. Some years saw layoffs happen twice. It's normal for McAfee. Just wanted to... —  read more 

Bring back US based support!

Our company started using McAfee about the time they shifted virtually all phone support to outside the US. The folks on my team would constantly complain about difficulties understanding McAfee’s outsourced phone support with their thick accents and... —  read more 

When will this end?

Looks like every day we hear news about more layoffs. I'm starting to wonder when exactly is this going to end? It's already nerve-wracking to know layoffs are happening but to have no idea when it will end? That just rubs salt into an already... —  read more
