-BARNES AND NOBLE

To also add they only pay for your tuition if your major is business related. Like business administration, marketing, marketable media, etc.
Two commercials for McAfee Chiropractic made out of footage from ‘Gamera vs. Jiger’ (1970) and 'Gamera vs. Gyaos’ (1967). The first one has an interesting edit and is titled “The Battle for Monster Island”.
I admit, until recently I didn’t really pay much atention to these and assumed “McAfee” was a variation of “coffee”, and that these were ads for a coffee shop. Wich means that the guy isn’t giving Jiger some invissible coofee through her back somehow, and that drinking coffee has nothing to do with the state of your back. I feel dumb.
So if you knew me around 5 years ago you would have heard me say something like “Fucking hell, this is the 4th time I’ve been acquired by a larger company. Surely nobody can buy us from Intel, they’re a fucking giant. This feels good.”
If you had known me last year you’d have heard me furiously trying to investigate the rumors that Intel was meeting with investment bankers about my division and rumors of buyers remorse.
If you knew me a few month ago you’d have heard me saying “goddamnit, not again…” as TPG bought the Intel Security division and will stand us up as a new company… McAfee. (Again)
Benefits were announced and my insurance has to switch. We lose the sabbatical program. The insurance thing is a kick in the sack because we found a doctor who cares and is really amazing.
Now o have to go back to either Cigna or Blue Cross which is like choosing to like the ass of a dog or the ass of a cat.
….and I’m leaving a fucking tech giant to go back to a privately owned company. So no local perks (Intel employees here get 10-15% off a ton of local retail/food) and no stock purchase program.
So even though my salary stays the same my cost of care goes up, no stock, and no benefits that are cost savings.
To say I’m annoyed is an understatement. Having done my time at startups and private companies it was nice to be able to leverage the mega corporation. It’s not perfect but we have bathrooms that aren’t gender specific, programs to help diversify the workplace, women and POC in real leadership positions, opportunities to learn about other cultures, and a giant network of mentors.
Old McAfee was not a fun or inspiring place to work.
Here’s hoping they get their shit together because I’m not willing to keep putting in years in hopes of something better. I’ve been with the company (including all the M&A) for 13 years (I just turned 37) which is like 1/3rd of my life.
I was super proud to work for Intel for a lot of reasons and to say I’m a little bitter they sold us would be accurate.
