    I worked at Websense part-time (more than 3 years)


    The flexible schedule was nice. They do the little things like buying bagels for the whole office every Friday or having office outings and get-togethers.


    My only criticism would be the strict time card monitoring. Despite being a generous organization, they really watch the clock on their people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The dress code is very confusing and causes a bit of an odd organizational feel. It's San Diego so some people are in flip flops and some are in suits. Just a little strange.
