    I have been working at Webroot Software full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you want great salary and benefits but have no work pride or sense or care of right from wrong this is a great place!

    Cons

    Abysmal development and role specific training.
    Wishful thinking rather than business driven decision making
    Indecisive business vision
    Clueless HR that are more worried about facade than actual management issues and poor leadership
    Promotion (bar some hard working individuals) done based off backstabbing others rather than business qualification

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up, cut the crap and realise that great technology won't make you millionaires, GREAT LEADERSHIP that nurture your brilliant workforce and listening skills will...

    Software Engineer Interview

    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.
