McAfee’s Creator May Be Wanted By Police, But Company Still Great To Work ForBy: Chris Crum - December 5, 2012
The name McAfee has been in the news a lot lately, as John McAfee, creator of the antivirus software, has been on the run, and in hiding from Belize police (though he has now made it to Guatemala, has a lawyer, and has planned a press conference for Thursday).
His legacy, however, the McAfee company, which was purchased by Intel in 2010, has been named one of the top 100 places to work in Dallas, Ft. Worth by the Dallas Morning News.
The company issued a press release about it today. Probably not a bad idea to get some more positive news out surrounding the brand, even if John McAfee has little to do with it these days.
This is actually the second year the company has made the list.
“To be chosen for a second year demonstrates McAfee’s continued commitment in offering a workplace where all of its employees can grow their careers and pursue their passion of keeping people safe online,” said J.C. Herrera, SVP of Global Human Resources. “McAfee strives on making the workplace a flexible and positive environment, which in turn enables us to attract top talent within the industry. Not only are we passionate about giving back to our employees, but the communities in which we live and work as well. We are proud of our diverse and dynamic workforce.”
The company notes that its Australian office has also been named a finalist in the Australian HR Awards, and is one of BRW Magazine’s 50 Best Places to Work in 2012.
