Were there layoffs this week?
SSE/XDR split. And SSE with Google? WTH is going on!
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
The dath spiral of McAfee over the past 10 years makes sense in light of Price's Law. https://dariusforoux.com/prices-law/
Many people are leaving or trying to leave at the first chance in both McAfee and McAfee enterprise. The equity given is of no value now. STG and Management is playing with the employees. They are businessman and not a charity org. so remember they... — read more
McAfee has been eyeing the cloud business for quite some time now. Do you think that the new CNAPP line of products will help gain McAfee any traction in the cloud security space ? Also I think it is being developed entirely by an Indian team.
Are there scissors running?
From 2005-2010 it was the best company with lot of perks, nice leadership, supporting and technically strong managers. but after Intel acquisition, it has went downhill. in older days i.e before 2010 or Intel acquisition, it was run by technical... — read more
There's rumor that stg's solution to unvested equity loss is to pay off execs all equity and have them quell rebellion. So if that's true, while most people are losing anywhere between 55 and 70 percent unvested equity, the tu@d at the top aren't... — read more
I've been here for three years and in that time I've learned that the threat of layoffs is a normal part of my job. It's not something I'm used to yet and it's making my job extra stressful. Now I'm wondering if it's always been like that? If it has... — read more
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.
Since the new management aka CISCO thugs headed by the Peter Leav came in, from that day on to this moment- it’s only been down hill for a company that once stood out and was an awesome place to work and trusted player on the market. After... — read more
Wondering if more layoffs will come as a result of this?
Chris Young took on the challenge to turn a tiny Intel business unit into a cool cyber security company that employees loved, were proud of and were happy to work for. That worked out as the company was governed by technocrats, who understood... — read more
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
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
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
Reading through these posts it seems like everybody who is still at McAfee hates the fact they're still here. I guess I'm among the few who still like their job here. Pay and benefits are decent and my coworkers and even my boss are great folks, so... — read more
If you're a software engineer, your days here are numbered. Go and look at openings for software engineers at careers.mcafee.com. Notice something? Almost 90 percent of available positions are in India. And guess who they're replacing? This has been... — read more
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
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
Judging by the past few rounds, there is usually six months between any larger layoffs. Which means we should be safe until June or July, right?
Can we now say with certainty that layoffs are done?
It’s amazing to me that at a time when cybersecurity is more important than ever, Mcafee does business the way it does. Due to the lack of transparency of this company, I still do not know the scale of the cuts, but I assume that the measures taken... — read more
This RIF is ongoing with no communication from leadership on when an "all clear" will be announced. For those of us who have not yet been notified either way, are there any impacted individuals who would be willing to share (high level) what their... — read more
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
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
Shutting down many sites. Laying off SCA and Plano. When will they officially designate themselves as Indian?
I haven’t seen anyone mention that McAfee closed the Córdoba office, 1/2 of EMEA sales and SEs.
Any one knows what's going on with skyhigh people at McAfee? Are we growing our cloud security business?
I told the current management they had poor judgement when I left before the layoffs. There is nothing more true. Short this stock.
I was laid off last year and I stopped by this site just to see how the whole show is going. Unfortunately, nothing seems to have changed. I remember better days when the name of this company still meant something and I’m wondering what is left of... — read more
Remember, it's all about cash flow. They will continue to cut, close offices, cut capital and expenses, payroll, etc.
Entire Argentina office is being shut down, other layoffs across many departments and geos as well.. What the f— is this company doing in the name of short term financial numbers?
