A company with good ideas, but struggling to stay relevant

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Webtrends

ProsSurrounded by smart people, competitive pay and benefits, enjoyable work culture. Innovation is encouraged and rewarded.

ConsDeclining profits and client list make for a volatile work environment. Competitors have outpaced Webtrends in many key business areas leaving the future of the company uncertain.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Not sure what this company's about...

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Webtrends full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGood pay, benefits, IT and facilities teams

ConsNo career growth
Advancement apparently not knowledge or merit- based (favoritism)
Frequent drastic change in company direction
Layoffs also frequent, but lots of underperformers remain (favoritism)

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn about technology since you are managing technical people
Be honest and fair
Learn something about project management (not micro-management)
Give credit where it is due
Focus on values, not slogans and buzzwords

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Good people, misguided management

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Portland, OR

I worked at Webtrends full-time for more than a year

ProsCompetitive pay, good benefits, mostly professional coworkers; mostly reasonable expectations; fabulous IT and Facilities groups

ConsInternal culture is heavily oriented to its external marketing messages; overt ladder-climbing and employee favoritism; too much lip service about customers; hipocrisy with regard to stated corporate values

Advice to Senior ManagementLook at what job functions are in place to keep customers happy, and then make it possible for those employees to actually make a difference with proper tools and resources.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

A ghost of it's once proud past

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

Pros- plenty of smart and talented people and some good underlying technology
- some good young talent that really wants to win and works hard.

ConsWhere does one begin? The core problem has finally been addressed with the recent change at the top but the new CEO seems like he's been sent in to chop this thing up and get it sold. It's sad to see round after round of terminations because sales is in perpetual turnover mode and can never make it's numbers . Way too many good and talented people have fallen victim to MGT's attempt to dress up the bottom line by chopping heads.

Advice to Senior ManagementEither get the company sold ASAP or put in a CEO who truly does want to grow the company and isn't simply interested in another cost cutting exercise.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Engaging and Motivating

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Portland, OR

I worked at Webtrends full-time for more than a year

ProsDuring my time at Webtrends, I worked with some highly intelligent and motivated individuals who inspired me to work hard and do the best I could. The engineering team is stacked with talent. Pay and benefits are good.

ConsThe culture of innovation pits senior engineers against each other rather than creating a collaborative environment. Mentoring and collaboration was paid a lot of lip service but practically never occurred.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest more time in training and mentoring you junior management. Treat your employees like adults and you will see much more employee retention.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

From Startup to Wall Street, then Acquired and then Sold

Account Executive (Former Employee)
Portland, OR

I worked at Webtrends full-time for more than 5 years

ProsPEOPLE: Even though there were days we lost and key employees left, it says a lot about the company, its products and most importantly the leadership to see the Herd return after an appropriate changing of the Guard.

ConsPRODUCT: Being a pioneer in the Web Analytics Market has many advantages, but as with any Multi-Billion dollar Market, you have got to not be satisfied with Good, You have to risk your Goods and strive for Great.

Advice to Senior ManagementNone at this time, since I was on the Sr. Mgmt. team

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
