    I have been working at Malwarebytes full-time

    Pros

    Fantastic software. The only direction left to go is up!

    Cons

    Poor culture (rapidly degrading), kliqs, paranoid HR/culture staff which will stalk you online and ask you to write positive Glassdoor reviews. Guess I didn't get that memo! Management is in over it's head. The egos of those in charge prevent leadership from seeing how their decisions are creating a toxic work environment. Geez what's not to love? Before applying at Malwarebytes I recommend you talk to as many...

    I have been working at Malwarebytes full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The office is cool I guess

    Cons

    Culture is very toxic as managers are micromanagers. They focus more on what time you come and go and how much time you take off rather than actual performance and training. Seems like they focus more on number of activities than actual quota. Employees are treated like children who need baby sitting, there is absolutely no trust from management at all. There are certain managers who are only in their position because...

    Pros

    Malwarebytes has a good product but the company is horribly run.

    Cons

    Only way to get ahead in the company is to be friends with upper management. Trash company stay away.

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

    Pros

    Well recognized brand. Comfortable office spaces. Good career opportunities. Several solid employees still doing great work in the company. Work-life balance. Solid benefits.

    Cons

    Sales team is poorly built. Company politics. Revolving door of executives. Questionable company direction.

    Advice to Management

    Make some good changes before things get worse. Lead by example. Good employees are losing motivation. Restructure your sales team. CEO needs to step back and take a CTO-type role.

    Advice to Management

    When making changes, plan for it. Be transparent with staff no one should come to work and find out they have new boss the next day. Malwarebytes need more leadership and not just authority.
