    Pros

    Tech company with conceptual sales approach. Very few players in space. Market share is a plus in large public and private sectors.

    Cons

    Ego ego ego. Be prepared for Roman Empire approach but just laugh it off. Be your best you.

    Advice to Management

    Intelligence is not incompatible with humility as long as you put humility first.

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    - latest technology
    - compensation
    - Good benefits

    Cons

    you will see only two kinds of resources at Corptax who have stayed longer than a year.
    1. Who have been with the company pre-current IT management and have deep anchors or
    2. H1-Bs who are vunerable for obivious reasons

    Go learn in a more mature environment if you can.

    Don't learn the hard way.

    Advice to Management

    You guys have driven away very bright resources from the company. fix you over-leverage issues within IT.

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    - 401K Match and Excellent health care benefits
    - You can learn how good code is written
    - Latest and greatest Microsoft Stack used - you'll know everything new happening in MS stack world.

    Cons

    - IT manager ( Deerfield ) imitates CEO and uses nasty language .
    - Anger issues in top management
    - Be ready to get nagged over stupid issues
    - Maintaining work life balance can become tricky sometimes as the Director will say ' You can't even do this - who hired you ???
    - Woodland hills office is still better than Deerfield.

    Advice to Management

    If you hire mature talent - don't micromanage them.

    Horrible senior IT management

    I worked at Corptax

    Pros

    Good health insurance.
    Latest technology.
    Nice to work with IT development team.

    Cons

    Management knows who or what is the issue with the IT organization and constantly ignores the root cause. No work life balance. There is no word 'polite' in corptax's dictionary.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the root cause or recruit more H1B holders so that they will stay with the company.

    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.

    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 Management

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

    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.
