    I have been working at Webroot Software full-time (more than an year)


    Pay is reasonable, but just barely. Bonuses have been good just because the company has cut costs and has no aggressive targets anymore.


    The company is dead. Nothing is happening, nothing will be happening, and no one wants to be here. It's maddening as it could be much better as we have great tech but no direction to take it to the next level and meet demands. The culture is awful and many people are looking for work elsewhere, myself included, but it is worth nothing on a resume.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the company to someone who can do a better job than you.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Webroot Software in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    I put in my resume for machine learning at a job fair, and got an e-mail after a couple of weeks, through which we scheduled a technical phone interview. Got interviewed by the guy who would later be my senior/boss/whatever (he was practically a one-person team), and though his accent was hard to understand at first, the interview was reasonable and basically just made sure I wasn't clueless.

    When I went in for the in-person interview I was greeted quite nicely and made to feel very comfortable. I was interviewed by 3 different people. Roughly speaking, first guy asked algorithms, second guy (same one who did phone interview) gave me a chance to explain a previous project, and then asked what aspects of the work I was most interested in.
