    Pros

    Outstanding work environment and management team, smart people, interesting projects in ATX location, outstanding Agile process implementation, every other Friday off

    Cons

    Corporate culture will crush independent character of ATX site and make it just like any other company, a real pity, and completely suck the joy of going to work every day

    Pros

    Pretty awesome regarding the life/work balance and the company culture. I enjoy having every other Friday off. Also the division I worked in really meshed well with my interest in electrical engineering so that is a boon!

    Cons

    Sometimes things move slow, but I guess it is expected in company of this size.

    I have been working at Cubic full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Company does have insurance, 401k, vacation time and stock options.

    Cons

    Poor communication, supervisors and managers fighting for control, little to no room for advancement, no to little training for new employees.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes and listen to the people who do all of the work. We are not in your shoes, but somehow you got there because the people actually doing the work allows you to have that job.

    I have been working at Cubic full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great pay, great hours, great benefits (except the healthcare)

    Cons

    Unless you are in the corporate office, the healthcare benefits are terrible. Very, very expensive and not that great of coverage. Not much room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Connect to your satellite sites more often. Learn about whats going on.

    Divest Cubic into two separate entities, a mil contractor company and the transportation business. One Cubic is not working.

    I worked at Cubic full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very knowledgeable, hardworking, and friendly engineering staff.

    Cons

    Work hours are not family friendly. Goes by a 9/80 schedule, therefore you get every other friday off, but 50% of the time they are offset by either having to work weekends, longer days or travel for weeks at a time, sometimes months, depending on what group you are in.

    Advice to Management

    Would have been a better place to work at if weekends/evenings were emphasized as personal time and incentive compensation presented when additional time is needed rather than after an employee complains.
