    Pros

    Mature, well defined process for systems engineering and software development. Ongoing process improvement.

    Cons

    Old facility, management not always interested in determining the root cause of a problem to best deal with it.

    Advice to Management

    No advice at this time. There has been a good bit of management turnover since I was there.


  2. New division growing pains

    I worked at Cubic

    Pros

    People are generally a good mix personalities. Everyone believes in this project. The end training product will be amazing. If every person was cookie cutter same, it's be boring and we'd not do well.

    Cons

    In any software company there is constant flux with new versions, new builds, bug fixes. The agile methodology is now used and is succeeding despite the poorly planned way it was put in place. The game is a training project that many forget about. It seems more important to management to create a visually stunning game over an instructional project.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Gather input from many sources and show respect for all Ideas. Draw upon your staffs well rounded experiences and don't take into account the ideas of just one or two key players

    Pros

    Great atmosphere until 2015. Great teamwork in the beginning.

    Cons

    No such thing as a 40 hour week, more like 60 hour weeks. Praise given only to the select few, who are all in some form of management position. Everyone is just worried about there job, waiting to be laid off.

    Pros

    Superior company to work with, always received full support, advancement and placement always available. Key - Superior working relationship with the military client. Would work for them immediately.

    Cons

    I have no "cons' to provide which would seemingly cast any negative dispersion on Cubic Incorporated. I have no further comment.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support and guide the client in the best possible manner whereby all participants are blended as one team. For real mission accomplishment in both the business and military communities sustained successes are essential.

    Pros

    Talented and dedicated employees. Advanced technology.

    Cons

    Unrealistic budgets/forecasts & an unwillingness to recalibrate once realized. Manage to costs rather than quality of service provided. 'Leverage their resources' = overload personnel while striving towards mediocrity.

    Pros

    Family oriented company. Open minded senior managment. Very good pay rate. Ability to move up in company. Adequate training. Employee recognition rewards, Yearly birthday lunches, picnic and Christmas party.

    Cons

    Middle management tends to be very political and driven by personal agendas. Very "click" oriented and favoritism is common. Bloated egos and finger pointing are both common characteristics at this level of management.

    Advice to Management

    To senior management; pay closer attention to the daily quality indicator reports as a great portion of them are being "massaged" to yield more favorable results. Also be careful with organizational structuring as friendships often trump the reporting structure and good sound management goes out the window.
