"Impressive cloud-based security opportunities"

StarStarStarStarStar
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
Approves of CEO

Pros

Friendly, helpful people, a culture that cares, opportunity to really make a difference in interesting, leading edge security technology -- they could be poised for tremendous success!

Cons

Politics/egos at middle management level tend to stymie collaboration. More siloes than expected for such a small company. Personally I don't think this is coming from the CEO (although he must be held accountable) -- but from mid-senior levels managers in day-to-day work. Don't know why this is -- but all managers need be held accountable for getting on the same page.

Advice to Management

Help managers improve their people management skills.

    I have been working at Webroot full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Groundbreaking approach to security. Nobody can touch us in product development and innovation - cloud, big data, threat intelligence, incredible performance. Growing, profitable company. Makes everyone else look like dinosaurs.

    Cons

    More options would be good.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate the successes more. Don't let the fired former employees on forums like this crap all over our company. All they wanted to do is leave at 4:30 and play with their dogs in the office. Good riddance to the bunch of them.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Webroot full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    colleagues are wonderful but very nearly all are searching elsewhere. All the Engineering Team that built what is SecureAnywhere have left the company so all IP has now left

    Cons

    Management is not in touch with day to day rumblings at except for a select few, no real longterm career prospect. the new cloud platform SecureAnywhere for Business was suppose to save the company but its still the Consumer Product and Revenue from the Consumer Sales that is keeping the company afloat. To much money was wasted on building the product

    Advice to Management

    get back to basic's(consumer marketplace)
