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

Pros

The people I worked with were great. Had a very interesting product line that was fun to work on. They do have an international presence so there's opportunity to travel outside the country. 9/80 work schedule is something I miss. Also pays well, gives out rewards for good work, and benefits are really good.

Cons

Management tends to be short sighted, focused on satisfying near term goals rather than long term solutions. And there seems to be no real vision where to go.

Advice to Management

Don't be afraid to take calculated risks, even if that means burning the bottom line a little in the near term.

    No growing room, once your in a position it's hard to move up...
