Pros

Great move to Austin
New leadership is allowing employees to contribute on direction and strategy
Work life balance truly exists. You can have honest converstations with your managers about work load and take the time to figure out priorities
It's easy for the folks that left to bag on the company and they have on previous posts but it's a new day for Websense

Cons

the move and aquisition is/was bittersweet
loss of good talent happened in the transition. unfortunate but we'll get through it
The negative reviews that come with the business decision to move to Austin.

Advice to Management

Keep up this enthusiasm, investment in our careers, our teams, our lives

    Pros

    A good technology space, good sales and marketing, fair compensation.
    Restructuring may help.

    Cons

    Websense has needed to move rapidly and has not been able to.
    This is a great space but very competitive and filled with companies that CAN innovate.
    Leadership has not been able to attract, motivate and enable talent.
    inability to innovate
    no growth in revenue
    poor management of a distributed workforce
    lack of leadership or vision

    Advice to Management

    it all starts with good management.
    Need to look at why (root cause) the company is in its current situation.
