    I have been working at Corptax full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    It is a very collaborative environment even reaching across "company borders". The benefits are great and there is a core belief customers make us successful and we make each other successful. Hard work-long hours occasionally thru the year-but lots of pride in jobs well done. Many friendships within the company and a willingness to help.

    Cons

    Struggles to improve career paths exists but being worked on. There is negativity in some areas, but it also does not go unaddressed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to hire the right folks and look at the winners to determine who leads. Keep investing in those that reap great results....

    I have been working at Corptax full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I enjoy coming to work! My team is very collaborative. People on my team and in other departments contribute to my success. The work is fast paced, never dull and can be challenging. The people are very smart and passionate about what they do!

      - Corptax invests in the latest .Net technologies, professional and personal development.
      - Exceptional benefits
      - Financially stable company and Fortune 1000 clients

    Cons

    - Very quick turnaround times are required on some projects.
      - Advanced planning may help with some of the quick turnaround expectations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - An additional office in downtown Chicago might help attract additional tech talent.

    I have been working at Corptax full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    The 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.

    Current Employee - Sales Department in Deerfield, IL

    I have been working at Corptax full-time

    Pros

    Many 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.

    Cons

    It 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.

    I have been working at Corptax full-time

    Pros

    Corptax 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.

    Cons

    This 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 ManagementAdvice

    The 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!!!!

    Corptax - lead by megalomaniac CTO

    I have been working at Corptax full-time

    Pros

    Latest technology, intelligent staff with lots of passion.

    Cons

    CTO runs the business including product direction and most critical development (he develops that himself), lack of mature Agile organization. Too more swearing, yelling and anger management issues. Workforce isn't very happy and collaborative and that should improve through more complimenting and less criticism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your people more and slow down to allow for higher quality delivery.

    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Deerfield, IL

    I have been working at Corptax full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Greatest 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.

    Cons

    There 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 ManagementAdvice

    Please 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.

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should be a partner not a taskmaster.

    Current Employee - Technology Operations in Deerfield, IL

    I have been working at Corptax full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great Benefits
    Latest and greatest technology

    Cons

    Complete 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 ManagementAdvice

    Revamp the technology portion of the organization - the way the org chart looks now will never work in the long run.
