    I have been working at Trustwave


    Very talented workforce from top to bottom. There is hardly any political game compared to most companies and everyone is focused on getting the job done.


    The entire engineering department is made up of technical minds all the way up to the CTO, so technical skills are valued above all else. Managing people is a secondary concern at best so you have to be self sufficient to thrive. Not much room for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a few managers or directors in the mix who aren't as focused on technical issues who can take care of people.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Trustwave.

    Interview Details

    Very quick and easy. Had less than a 5 minute phone call with the hiring manager. They knew who I was and I was recommended by their boss already. This write up on the interview process is most likely longer than the actual interview I had. Yep, it is longer than the actual interview at this point.
