Lead Software Engineer at TransUnion
in Cumming, GA

Please give us a one liner to describe this review.

"Stay away"

What do you like about working at TransUnion?

"Didn't - worst job I've ever had. They did a bait and switch on me. I interviewed for one position and accepted it and before I started, they gave that job to another employee. I was given that employee's job -- I wouldn't have accepted that position."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Don't"

What don't you like about working at TransUnion?

"They closely monitor the comings and goings of employees by using the access to the parking lot and the building. I was told that they had flex time - after I started they told me my hours were 8 to 6. They switched the position I was hired for (C/C++, Python on Unix with Window configuration management). They even switched the company I was to work for - I was hired into TransUnion, on my first day I was transfered to CompuCredit (a company that makes money by finding people with bad credit and extending credit to them). This company and this position will make you feel dirty (and not in a good way)"

What suggestions do you have for management?

"None - I believe that there would be no way to fix this company."

Lead Software Engineer at Disney Interactive Media Group
in Seattle, WA

Please give us a one liner to describe this review.

"Decent work/life balance, though this is getting worse lately. There is a lot of technical debt, and no support for eliminating it."

What do you like about working at Disney Interactive Media Group?

"The people here are amicable and there is at least a pretense of a work/life balance."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"If you like to do innovative work, this is not a good place to be. If you want a comfortable position that requires very little technical growth, you might be ok here."

What don't you like about working at Disney Interactive Media Group?

"The group is trending toward a sweatshop, and the company is not willing to put new projects on hold in order to allow time to reduce the massive amount of technical debt that has accrued from years of bad engineering."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Dedicate some time to replacing the legacy systems, and give up on the idea of incremental updates. Also stop forcing the developers to clone the existing systems rather than improving upon them."

Lead Software Engineer at Cubic Corp.
in San Diego, CA

What do you like about working at Cubic Corp.?

"Good opportunity to write your own drivers and upgrade existing designs. Worthwhile oppurtunity to work with LAN based communications and diverse networks of stand alone systems."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"C++ must be a strength of yours, be familiar with embedded system requirements and LAN programming."

What don't you like about working at Cubic Corp.?

"Overly complex software design lacking good organization and standardization of interfaces. I had to produce most of their existing documentation before I could approach the product closely. Management failed to support most of their promotion and title promises. The company is run by a very old general manager who doesn't understand software development needs and supports a great deal of litigation with his customers."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Move into the modern world and split the code into a main application and loadable DLLs. Provide a reliable career path for your critical people and actually produce an employee retention program instead of the layoff jumble you now employ."
