    • Career Opportunities

    Former Employee - Security Labs in San Diego, CA

    I worked at Websense full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Streamlining from reorganization to increase EBITDA puts the company's financials in a better light and enables the company to execute strategy in a 'leaner' and faster mode, hopefully.
    Great place to develop a career if one could align with the overall organizations goals.
    Innovation to some degree that demonstrates thought leadership within the Infosec space.

    Cons

    Recent acquisition from a private equity firm has incited unrest among employees with uncertainties in multiple levels.
    Hard to project job stability even for the next year.
    Compensation could be a little more competitive considering what a hot space the company is in right now.
    Balanced work - personal life has the potential to breed complacency and I believe this is something the reorganization is trying to fix (former is fine, latter should be avoided)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Technology execution has to happen on a faster pace to keep up with the industry and plethora of cropping startups.
    Stop cutting corners on compensation for expensive professionals before they leave and the company becomes irrelevant in the industry.

    Pros

    Location. San Diego and that is going away.

    Management. Our CEO has no idea on how to run this type of business.
