plenty of potential, realization questionable...

Director (Current Employee)
San Diego, CA

ProsWebsens has great technology, it has a tried and stable financial model, it has a relevant market focus with budgeted dollars from customers

ConsThe ability to execute has been erratic, there are sparks of brilliance, but the entire company does not seem to be aligned and driving in concert. The culture is in a state of flux, with no clear long term anchor.
