    I have been working at Trustwave full-time


    Great culture! It can be a bit intimidating at first, coming from a non-technical background, but with a very informative and fun 4 week training program and supportive colleagues and management, it sure made for a smooth transition into this role. I truly feel like i'm learning something new everyday and challenging myself to my full potential. It's the perfect company to work for at this time and not only because we have the coolest new office space but this industry is booming!


    Haven't found too many "cons" thus far but my only struggle is building pipeline and clientele. You won't start off making a ton of money but once you put in the work, deals will slowly start coming in.

    Advice to Management

    They are extremely supportive and motivating.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Trustwave (Chicago, IL) in July 2017.


    The interview process started with an initial phone screen interview where I was asked about my experience and was given a description bout the next steps that included: another phone screen interview over the phone, a technical interview over the phone and a week project to finish. If all passed, an on-site interview would take place to discuss the project overall and how will I fit in the company.

    The second phone screen interview did not take place since the HR Manager forgot about it. After scheduling it for the second time, we talked for less then 3 minutes as all he wanted to know if I have any additional questions.

    The phone technical interview did not take place on time as the engineer was busy with another issue on hand. He called me back over an hour later. After a brief introduction and a detail description about the position, he asked me 3 technical questions which I have answered fully.

    After the phone technical interview , I have not received any further communication from the company. The whole process took 4 weeks and was handled very unprofessionally.
