High Energy, Innovative and Willing to Try New Approaches

Marketing (Current Employee)
Deerfield, IL

I have been working at Corptax, LLC full-time for less than a year

ProsThe leadership team has a clear vision for the future and the dedication to see it through. The client base is loyal and growing because they develop outstanding and relevant products and they provide comprehensive training and support programs.

The benefit package is one of the best in the Chicagoland area and there are definitely opportunities for growth and advancement.

ConsThe Deerfield location isn't the best for me, but it could be much worse. Plus, the building has a gym so instead of sitting in traffic I enjoy a quick after work workout.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Current Employee of almost a year - Sales

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Deerfield, IL

I have been working at Corptax, LLC full-time

ProsCorptax has a fun, ethical, and learning filled environment. There are many opportunities to move up at Corptax. I was promoted within my first year at Corptax and I witnessed many others move up as well. The pay includes a good salary plus commission. Benefits are top notch; 401 K is matched up to 6%, great medical, dental and more.

ConsThis job does require intelligence and like anything else in life, hard work. However if you put forth the effort, learn the product, and apply yourself during training you will excel.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe atmosphere is great. I enjoy the people I work with and everybody is willing to help those who ask for it. My Sales Manager is great as well. She has put together an amazing training program that did not exist before she got here. On top of that she is always making sure we have what we need to successfully call, contact, and close accounts. I have learned a lot at Corptax, not only tax software but more about myself as an individual and life in general. Keep it up Corptax!!!!

Fun, modern place to work. Good for new grads.

Sales Department (Current Employee)
Deerfield, IL

I have been working at Corptax, LLC full-time

ProsMany people have been promoted within the sales team and there is opportunity to advance if goals are met. There are several recent graduates in Inside Sales and I like working with a group of people that are going through the learning process with me. They do provide sales and product training which is a big help. This is the first company I've worked for but people I talk to say the benefits are better than most places. The fitness center in the building is free. We go to Clearwater Florida for our sales meeting which was pretty cool.

ConsIt can be hard to get people on the phone but I guess you get that with most sales jobs. It's a lot to understand but doable.

Very nice people to work with

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Deerfield, IL

I have been working at Corptax, LLC full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreatest and the latest technology. Very good people to work with. Product is used by a lot of big companies and thus can be a stable place to work. Technology team is trying out Agile and they seem to getting on track.

ConsThere is still some interference from the top on how people should write code. Work can sometime s get hectic but that is the case with most software jobs. Directors, who are supposed to have learnt the art of communication apparently have not.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease ensure that there is a process and it followed to the dot even if it means a couple of delayed product releases. It's extremely important for CSC to ensure that this happens. No company can be centered around one person.(I'm sure you know the person). Also, have some career path for software engineers. One should not join as a software engineer and retire as one.

Work hard and enjoy the company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Plano, TX

I have been working at Corptax, LLC full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat collaboration-no silly pettiness. Everyone drives hard to hit the mark and there is a sincerity to friendships throughout. Opportunites to grow, even outside current department prevelant.

ConsCan get crazy during tax deadlines, and long hours can occur. So often communication can break down and things get missed.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement should be a partner not a taskmaster.

Don't work here!!!!

Technology Operations (Current Employee)
Deerfield, IL

I have been working at Corptax, LLC full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat Benefits
Latest and greatest technology

ConsComplete lack of work life balance - you are expected to be on call 24/7/365
Technology leadership is incapable of cogent technology debate (his opinion is ALWAYS right)
Technology is run as a totalitarian dictatorship (managers/directors have 0 ability to make decisions)
Technology has no real roadmap - priority is on keeping the tires on the ground.
High turn-over rate because of problems with Tech Leadership (this is true for tech-ops, dev, db ops etc..)

Advice to Senior ManagementRevamp the technology portion of the organization - the way the org chart looks now will never work in the long run.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
