    Pros

    The tech the company have is great, some smart acquisitions were made back in 2010, Prevx and BrightCloud. There is a great opportunity here, they have the tech. Some management changes of late will improve the outlook no end.

    Cons

    Management in HQ leaves a lot to be desired, poor decisions have cost them good staff. Aggressive growth plans meant tough quotas, no reality baked into them at all (hence losing good staff) Could develop more products/improve current offerings.

    Advice to Management

    More indians, less chiefs, too many managers trying to insulate themselves from poor results.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Webroot Software (Sydney) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Recruiting firm, PRA, were very sketchy. Initially applied for different role, but got pushed to this role. It's quite clear they were just making up the candidate numbers to get another candidate across the line (getting their commission was their only objective). Phone interview with HR. Took a week to be told I wasn't progressing any further.

    Interview Questions

    • Very simplistic interview, with no real tough questions.   Answer Question
