    Pros

    Lots of great problems to solve and a lot of amazing people to solve it with. Malwarebytes offers an environment where I can make a difference.

    Cons

    Like any fast growing company, there are always growing pains. Roles and responsibility and accountability are just some examples.

    Don't fail people who are loyal. Be more mindful of how your decisions impact real people.

    Pros

    -love the people I work with
    -OTO
    -perks and benefits
    -fast growing company

    Cons

    -management: there are some really bad managers who SHOULD NOT be in a leadership role. Many are known to be 'bad' but no one will do anything about it. They keep saying "we will coach them" but honestly, some people cannot be coached into being a good manager. This affects their team and employees and people end up blaming the individuals instead of looking at the manager.

    -culture: getting worse and worse as time goes on. There really isn't a culture to be honest and the culture ambassador in this office really does not do anything. Very political.

    -pay: very low paying for a tech company in this area. They say it is because of all the other benefits we get, but at the end of the day, people work for money.

    Advice to Management

    Work on the cons!

    Pros

    There are a lot of pros, but the company culture is the biggest one. I've worked in enterprise IT for 11 years now and I've never seen anything like it. The CEO shares so much great info with the staff in a truly transparent monthly all hands meeting. The fact that he obviously cares so much inspires the entire company to work harder than I've ever seen before.

    This cultivates an incredibly positive work environment. It is a fast paced, dynamic and never boring. I feel continuously inspired to do my best. There are also a lot of added perks such as free food and excellent health insurance.

    Cons

    The Clearwater office is jam-packed full of staff but I hear rumors that they will be moving to a larger office soon.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work
