    I have been working at Websense full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    3 weeks of vacation, 8 sick days a year. Bagels on Friday. Raytheon buy out seems to be helping as there are a lot of job openings now. Dental and vision are ok.

    Cons

    Health care with 4k deductible then insurance kicks in covering 80%. Total out of pocket is 8k. We are told this will be changing. Hopefully it will as there used to be only a 3k total out of pocket.

    Advice to Management

    Change the health insurance to attract top tallent. Many people have left or did not accept a job offer because of health insurance.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Websense (Austin, TX) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Was called on a Friday to come in on Monday. Took time off to make it, the interview could have been much better. One employee insulted my degree, was very unprofessional and cursed during the interview and made it very known she wanted to leave by 5pm. Another employee told me she was unprepared because they just told her about it. I was told at the end I'd hear back in a few days nothing crazy, its been 5 weeks and no response.
