    Pros

    The people are wonderful. From subordinates to peers to management to ownership, the people are what make Webroot grand.

    Free coffee, ping-pong, remote work opportunity if your manager is amendable to it.

    Cons

    Too many products to try to manage to actually deliver a well-executed and fully functional product. No direction. Company was sold twice in the same year and is now owned and operated by OpenText. Most if not all of the other reviews are fake.
