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

    Pros

    There are some of the brightest, most competent and driven people working at Webroot that I've ever had the privilege of calling coworkers. Work in the dynamic security space is both challenging and exciting, and presents lots of opportunities to learn and grow professionally. Also on the plus side are very competitive pay, reasonably flexible schedule, and adequate benefits.

    Cons

    Despite the great talent at their disposal, Webroot is a rather mediocre company, mired in indecision, politics and largely self-imposed bureaucracy, and lacking focus and direction. There is no shortage of ideas and initiatives, that, however, receive insipid strategic support and are apparently presumed to somehow flounder their way to fruition (which they actually do, occasionally).

    Advice to Management

    The fact that grassroots innovation has worked so far is truly remarkable, but relying solely on that to stay relevant and grow the business is not a good long-term strategy. Figure out where the company needs to go, and give your people clear direction, tools and support to get there.

    Pros

    I have been with Webroot for about a year now and I feel confident in sharing that this is a great place to work. The company is focused on their goals and passionate about succeeding on all levels including creating top tier products, offering industry leading support, driving best in class efficacy and building a team that can support all of it. They have experienced incredible success and double digit growth over the last several years creating excellent momentum for the whole org and to top it off they recognize that it takes a happy talented team to pull this kind of success off so they hire great people and reward them accordingly. Very happy and impressed with the commitment, drive and talent I have seen and happy with management's long term view for success.

    Cons

    Webroot is a global company with offices in US, Europe, Asia and Australia... timezones can be a challenge if you meet with teams across all regions.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the transparency and solid leadership! Love the flexibility to try new things such as OKR's.

    Pros

    This place is fantastic!! It's crazy that this is unusual. They care about the employees and they don't just talk about it. From the continual learning, to 360 reviews, to quarterly compensation reviews, All Hands meetings where they show how we are really doing (even when it's not positive), Managers are advocates for the employees...this is what great culture looks like in action!!!

    Cons

    Honestly, I've been here for a few months now and I keep expecting the shoe to drop ....but I can't even find the shoe!!

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up and the best and brightest will flock here to work!
