A good company with high impact products but lacking strong organizational guidance and managment
Program Manager (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – September 14, 2017
Stressful work environment complicated by Government's inability to improve contract award commitments on a timely basis. Program Managers are not often provided with the ability to make decisions concerning proposal strategy nor technical guidance.
Editor/Narrator (Former Employee) – Leavenworth, KS – September 5, 2017
This was a very good job with good pay and benefits. We had leeway to work the hours we wanted as long as we put in 8 hours a day. We also worked independently, with no one looking over our shoulders. The hardest part was keeping up with the number of assignments and managing our time. The only negative was that it was contract work, and there was always the possibility that our contract might not be renewed.
Work hours, pay and benefits were good
Job security - we could lose our job if the contract wasn't renewed.
Media-on-the-Battlefield (Former Employee) – Fort Polk, LA – August 31, 2017
Hands down, this was one of the most enlightening and rewarding jobs of my professional career. My employer was a defense contractor who specialized in military training. My particular job was in role play with Media-on-the-Battlefield and basically I simulated real-world media in the venues of radio, newspaper and television. Our job was to present ourselves as would real-world media to the soldiers in the battlefield in order to train them on how to effectively utilize the media. This was a unique learning experience as I was completely immersed in the military culture with a first-hand opportunity to witness the intensity and thoroughness of military training. This was a very eye-opening experience for me and I developed a much deeper and richer appreciation for the extreme sacrifice that our military makes in order to serve this great nation.
Unique Learning Experience
Job was temporary and on-call based on training needs

A typical work day with Cubic is quiet and laid back they don't tend to micromanage. They will step in if you are having and issue. I've learned a lot with he jobs I've received while working through Cubic. The hardest part of any job is balance.

Geospatial and Critical Thinking Instructor NGA (Former Employee) – Springfield, VA – August 22, 2017
I did not work for Cubic directly. I was hired by Cubic to work for another company, but their indirect management is outstanding in all areas. I learned how great it is to be supported by a company that takes care of its people. Management was great. Great workplace culture. No difficulty because I did not work directly for Cubic, but any administrative issues was clearly rectified. Not have pressure from the company
Cost Estimating Specialist (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – August 19, 2017
Learned a lot and met a lot of great people. Company is changing and heading in a direction that is filled with lots of uncertainty. The merging of company has been a challenge and the new SAP system is also a major challenge.
Actor (ROLEPLAYER) and part time clerk (Current Employee) – Fort Polk, LA – August 10, 2017
I absolutely enjoy working for Cubic. It has great pay with potential of moving up for better opportunities. I absolutely love the fact that we get to be apart of training the soldiers for their upcoming deployments.
Military Intelligence Analyst, Opposing Forces (Current Employee) – Quantico, VA – August 7, 2017
Work was sporadic, only busy when conducting exercises with various training audiences. Pay increases did not exist and it is apparent the leadership has its favorite personnel. Limited to no chance for advancement or job-related training.
Great position for college graduates/military retirees
