    I worked at Webroot Software full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people at the company are fun to work with, and the pay is great. Plus, the industry is really cool and always changing.

    Cons

    The management doesn't do a good job of sharing/communicating the company vision and direction. It also seems like there are a lot of "cooks in the kitchen" with every effort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to be clearer at a tactical level regarding where the company is headed.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed 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.
