    I worked at Cubic full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Diverse portfolio of projects that you can be involved with. Career growth opportunity if you are assertive about it. Stable, large organization.

    Cons

    Being a large company, it takes a long time to get things done and get the tools you need to do your job.

    Advice to Management

    Do what you can to not be over corporate to technical workers. At the end of the day, you are a software and technology company, so take cues from those in the tech industry and enable your technical workers.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Cubic full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I love that Cubic is the perfect size; big enough to offer great benefits, competitive compensation and enriching job opportunities, but also small enough to facilitate strong relationships and the ability to do meaningful work. With a focus on innovation and growth there are always exciting projects.

    Cons

    Along with the benefit of exciting work comes the challenge of balancing multiple priorities. If you're someone who loves to keep busy, dig in deep and innovate to make a difference, Cubic is for you. If you prefer your job to be pre-defined and routine you may struggle.

    Advice to Management

    Continue seeking the balance between doing things fast and doing things thoroughly.
