Excellent Enterprise Software Development

Software Development Engineer (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Capax Global full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThe management is very responsive to my personal situation. They pick contracts based on my current skills, desired learning opportunities, travel requirements and time constraints. They are very willing to work with me to find the best fit.

You can work as much or as little as you want. They have some projects that require extreme time constraints, and others with average. I've found that even in the extreme contracts there will always be lulls in the work (after deadline has been met) where you can have a chance to breathe and recharge your batteries.

On all projects they emphasize best practices and use the latest & greatest technology whenever possible. I am keeping up on all the latest technology just by going to work! However, the solutions are always about the right tool for the job, so sometimes you will need to interact with old, outdated systems/technology.

There are incredibly smart people at the company you can always call upon for advice - including literally the best people in disciplines such as Exchange, Autonomy, MS SQL and more. Microsoft has Capax as one it's top 5 consulting firms...#1 in areas like SQL I believe.

I have learned so much about software development working here, and seems to be learning more every couple months.

ConsSometimes you get stuck between software bugs and a deadline which can lead to very stressful/long weeks, but that seems to be par when working on *enterprise* software development contracts - at least in my experience.

Advice to Senior ManagementNone.

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

Long hours, high-stress, incompetent managers, anal retentive

Senior Web Applications Developer (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

I worked at Capax Global as a contractor for less than a year

ProsGet to work with cutting-edge technology.
Company tries to apply current best practices

ConsManagers were software developers who have no leadership skills. My project lead can be nice at times but has a very hot temper and will turn on a dime. My tech lead was very unapproachable and unhelpful. He was rather domineering and rude at times. He hands you a enormous codebase that has been developed over years and expects you to be an expert at it in a week with no documentation and no help from him. They are very arrogant and think they're poop don't stink, yet they have had failed projects in the past that almost caused them to lose a client.

 They are extremely anal about every thing. There is little room for creativity. You're basically a code monkey. They have very strict coding practices. It takes away the enjoyment of why you got into coding in the first place. Expect long hours, 60+/week. Very fast-paced. You can easily get burned out. Expect to not get much sleep; meanwhile they expect you to be bright eyed and attentive, even if you only got 4 hours of sleep the prior night.

On the flip side, they are working with the latest technology, so you can stay current.

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn how to manage people properly. Act professional.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
