    Pros

    Great group of co-workers.
    In a position (as a product) to really succeed within the security industry.
    Great locations to work.
    Casual dress code (for now).
    Rewarding work (even if it's not recognized my management)

    Cons

    Upper management lack of vision and appear to be only interested in lining their own pockets.
    Very top heavy. There are so many managers, directors, and executive staff. I mean do we really need 2 CTO's and now a SVP to manage the CTO's?
    Serious lack of talent within the Dev and QA teams.
    Salaries are grossly unbalanced.
    Promotions are solely based on who you know, who you sleep with, or whether you're a "yes' person or not. It's truly sad!
    Training is non-existent at this place.
    No more dogs.
    Relocating offices.
    Employees have no voice despite upper management swearing they do.
    No open door policy despite upper management saying they are always available.
    I can go on and on....so I'll stop there.

    Advice to Management

    Wake the hell up!! You are sinking this ship.

    Pros

    Great coworkers who work hard
    Super casual dress code

    Cons

    The worst management staff who have never been trained to do their jobs
    No upward mobility unless you brown nose or stay on middle management's good side
    Once you're given a position, you're locked at that salary without any raises
    They will work you to death, and then they complain that YOU aren't controlling your own work/life balance
    They make promises for promotions and new job opportunities but rarely follow through
    If you do a good job, they prevent you from moving into a different department or position

    Advice to Management

    Get some training. Most managers at Webroot claim to have experience managing people, but they have no idea what they are doing. They say that there's no such thing as a "breaking point," but a good manager is supposed to prevent their employees from reaching that level of stress. They are simply relying on a terrible economy and the threat of joblessness to keep people in check. It was one of the most exploitative companies I have ever worked for in the startup/software industry. The minute the economy improves, all of your people will either leave or be poached for better job opportunities.
