Thread regarding McAfee layoffs

I still like my job, am I really the only one?

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 there really isn't much to complain about. Yes, the lack of job security s—s, but I think there are few companies that are not in a similar situation right now. I really hope all those who want to leave find a better place for them, but I really hope I'm here for years to come.

What he said above....that company has become gangster driven middle and low class hating overlords of opportunistic clique-ish old boys club. But the move to India is pretty real, believe me!!!!

I loved my job before I came to the realization a half-decade ago that the only reason I still have it is because they haven't figured out a way to replace me that ultimately is cost effective to them. Too much knowledge and not enough long-term engineers not seeking management roles in India to replace it.

That said, there is absolutely no employee loyalty at this company whatsoever unless you're in the right clique (and believe me, it exists). Some groups literally can't understand why everyone around them is miserable because they simply do not realize they're sheltered under the protective umbrella of special executive rain-gear. Or they do realize it but prefer to just bury their head in the sand and act like its always sunny in Philadelphia. Unless you're in that clique, keep that resume polished. It's not a question of "if", it's a matter of "when". If they will literally schedule a project completion so they can account for a layoff and reap the RIF in the same quarter, they will not hesitate to send you packing; not for a second.

I liked it to...until they told me to leave...RIF.
There are good people there and the culture is cool.
Management is just constantly changing direction and goals....and laying off:-)

1 thing is confirmed price for all the hardworking employees are reaped by senior management and staff. Work s—s life s—s at this place. Get some good advice and leave. It’s a perfect place if you’re a looser.
