    I have been working at KUBRA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive salary and bonuses
    Very intelligent talent at this company
    Recognized for your hard work and commitment to the company
    Constantly engaged in interesting and technically challenging work
    Upper management is approachable and active in solving any issue

    Cons

    There is hardly anytime to slow down and go back to properly document or settle outstanding technical debt

    Advice to Management

    The business model used when the company was younger and client base was smaller won't scale by throwing more software engineers at it. There needs to be more of a fundamental focus on providing a fully featured products vs fully customizable products.

    Pros

    Vacation and personal time off is generous compared to most. You'll find some talented and hardworking people here.

    Cons

    Not convinced these guys know how to run a software company or that they understand software developers. Has the feel of a much larger dysfunctional and bland organization. Hard to see much of a future here.

    I worked at KUBRA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I thought for 10 minutes to find a pro. There are no pros really.

    Cons

    This is the worst place I ever worked. No process, No competitive pay, Not very qualified people around you,Legacy technologies, Random sales persons give random promises to clients, Senior management do not have balls to push back on the unreasonable commitments, constant attrition of good people. Overall a terrible place to work for at least a week.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees well. You can not run a software company like a factory.

    I worked at KUBRA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Well organized, well managed company. On a local, working level the environment is friendly - good people. Positions are well defined, and work expectations are clear and straight forward.

    Cons

    Senior management makes no bones about being profit driven. The firm is pretty clear about its people being a distant second consideration, and about the long term objective of phasing our the production of hardcopy mail in favor of electronic correspondence and electronic payment processing.

    Advice to Management

    No real advice. Cold (from a people perspective) but very honest representation of management's objectives - based on the real world.

    I worked at KUBRA full-time

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Employee benefits. Most if not all the people you meet. Free fruit in the lunch room.

    Cons

    There is a lot of work and not enough employees. You may be taking on multiple roles which are outside of your job description and pay scale. The annual salary is below industry standards. Support is often seen as extra horsepower for implementations. Dated technologies and methodologies. Most often pointless paperwork and lack of well written documentation.

    Advice to Management

    Increase annual salary to meet industry standards and to keep current employees happy and attract newer talent.
