    Pros

    Large customer base, breadth of security solutions with increasing sophistication and complexity, internal security lab and research team, dedicated product and engineering teams.

    Cons

    Renewals can be the path of least resistance for sales and that limits the success of the larger integration TRITON product suite with data theft defenses. This also impacts channel partners and their skill sets to support more sophisticated and complex products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage renewals separately from new business and upgrades...even more so in the mid-market business segment. Plus gauge channel partner skills to support the TRITON product suite sophistication and complexity.

    Marketing Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Austin, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Websense in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter and had an initial phone screening - easy. The recruiter seemed really nervous on the phone, almost scared.

     Then I was asked to take an aptitude test, again - easy.

    I was asked to take it again, this time in front of them for confirmation. It wasn't so easy that time, a lot of percentages. My test scores were low that time and I didn't move on.

    Their interview process is easy, but they're ridiculous for eliminating people due to a test score.
