    Former Employee - QA Engineer in Broomfield, CO

    I worked at Webroot Software full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It served me well for 7 long years
    People are still employed (who knows for how long)
    Company has enough money to still hire executives
    They have enough money to pay reviewers

    Cons

    After 7 long years it chewed me out and decided to spit me out like chewing gum. Although my last performance review said my performance was phenomenal (manager's words, not mine) I was discarded like a piece of garbage. In 2 weeks I will be deported thanks to Webroot. I hope the management can sleep well.

    No new hires last more than 2 years. Seriously. Check the stats.
    Old timers are all gone. Or some like me discarded like garbage.
    Company is run by folks who are still used to the 60s style management. Really old executives.
    Executives are horrible politicians. LOT of in fighting.
    Managers are namesake. None are hands-on. The ones who were are all gone cuz they didnt play the game.

    I worked at Webroot Software full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Every couple of years they trick employees into believing there is a technology revolution coming and the company may go public, The carrot is always hanging.

    Cons

    Where do I begin?
    There are constant lay-offs and high profile departures. Look at the facts. The company has gone from almost 600 employees worldwide to just around 400 in a little over a year.
    This company isn't making any money. They threw away their flagship products and are now making even less than they did before.
    In their zest to lighten the load, they laid-off the people who actually worked. They retained manager-types who don't even delegate well.
    The management types love to use buzzwords like frictionless but are only capable of spreading political malice. The same can be said about people recently promoted to the executive level.
    When they do reward hard work their decisions leave one scratching their head - executives who are barely pubescent and have never even had management experience?
    The less we talk about their acquisitions, the better. When was the last time a webroot acquisition result in financial benefits for the company? errr never,. No really, NEVER.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. Thanks for the carrot. Good luck with your incompetent engineering management team.
