Job title : Business Development Manager
Location : Australia
“I've been working for McAfee for 6 years. I started as a Channel Account Manager, looking after a large territory and focussed on developing the Channel and supporting the SMB and Enterprise Reps.
After 2 years I moved into Field Sales in the same territory, only this time I worked from a home office, looking after Enterprise Customers with more than 1000 nodes. I'm still doing this role today and thanks to the excellent range of products we have to sell our customers; I've been very successful. What's more if I was to move overseas, I know that career progression really could be limitless.
If I had to describe the qualities you need to succeed here, I'd say – commitment, honesty, integrity, passion and patience. But these qualities are part of what's so great about working for the Leader in Security Risk Management. As not only do we offer our customers best of breed security solutions, we also constantly add to our portfolio, meaning that we've never had better products to speak to our customers about than we do right now.
This is why I'd have no hesitation in recommending a friend to work here too. Such excellent product and support capabilities ensure I maintain credibility in front of my customers. While a culture of integrity and high ethical standards also contribute to customer confidence. And working for a company that offers great products with high satisfaction levels makes it easy to recommend others to join McAfee.”

Job title : Senior Technical Account Manager
Location : Australia
I've been with McAfee for over five years. I originally started with Network Associates in 2001 as the sole provider supporting the Magic Helpdesk solution and migrated to a Technical Account Manager position with the McAfee group. Over a period of time I became a Team Leader for the Platinum APAC TAM group and transitioned to a Senior Technical Account Manager role, which is the job function that I currently perform today.
Throughout this time the working relationships that were created with my clients have actually turned into friendships. And this is the ultimate reward for me. Gaining their trust makes my job so much easier in terms of getting the best out of me and also getting the best out of them.
And this culture of trust, friendship and PEOPLE focus is what I love about working here. In my team, we consider each other as FRIENDS rather than work colleagues and these strong relationships have helped to create a healthy working environment, where access to support and specialist knowledge enables everyone to grow their knowledge and technical skills. Everyone is encouraged to progress. Opportunities within different divisions arise on a regular basis, and at the beginning of each year everyone sits down with their manager and maps out a list of goals that they wish to accomplish.
Friendly, driven, understanding and goal-oriented is how I'd best sum us up. I'd recommend working here to anyone, as it's a company that has the interests of not only its customers in mind, but also that of “it's people”. I know that the skills I've learnt so far at McAfee will help me throughout my career. The infrastructure is set up for a person to succeed in their job role with avenues available for an employee to maximize their ambition.”

Location : (Greater China ), Hong Kong SAR, APAC
“After graduating from the Computer Science department of University of British Columbia in Canada, I headed off to the Bay Area, California to start my career as a programmer on Java applications.
I spent 4.5 years in the valley doing development roles with different development platforms and performed a consulting service for one of the largest banks in San Francisco. Eventually, I moved back to Hong Kong and became a project manager in a System Integrator, before joining McAfee as a Security Engineer. Here, I learnt all about security related technologies, became a security advisor to McAfee customers, and last year, succeeded in becoming a leader in the Greater China team, which liaises between local SEs community and the APAC regional group. I've now been with McAfee for 2.5 years.
The SE community, by its very nature, is a hybrid of Sales and Engineers. A dynamic bunch of people, with different traits and facets to meet different situations, we get to have hands-on experience with the most innovative technologies developed or acquired by McAfee before anyone else in the company knows about it.
I really enjoy working here. A very focused company with clear leadership in IT security, we have a good economic foundation and constantly strive to provide innovative solutions, which help customers to secure their business-valued assets. McAfee cherishes not only their patent technologies, but also its staff by constantly helping them plan their career paths and assist them on continuous self-development.

“I've been working at McAfee for a year and a half as a Financial Analyst. This involves management reporting, forecasting sales bookings, sales planning and tracking of sales rep performance against quotas.
