    I have been working at Corptax full-time for more than a 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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    separation of development and operations at the top level, having good vision and management is required for operations to keep up with company growth.

    Pros

    Work hard and make your numbers, it's a great place to be. No room for laziness since it's a small company and everyone has to pitch-in.

    Cons

    Overall vision can be fuzzy at times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to work on career path mobility

    Senior Technology Management is a problem

    Former Employee - IT Staff  in  Deerfield, IL
    Former Employee - IT Staff in Deerfield, IL

    I worked at Corptax full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Good team members
    - Latest Technology
    - Work from home opportunities
    - The company makes a good product and it is being adopted by many customers so there are opportunities based on company growth.

    Cons

    - Excessive turnover in technology staff and management. In past 12 months, heads of App Dev, Product Development, QA and IT Operations have all left. Staff turnover equally high. You are constantly working with someone new in their job.
    - Senior IT management lacks respect for employee's knowledge or skills.
    - IT Directors and Managers are OK but have their hands tied and all either give up or leave.
    - Highly tense environment caused by senior IT management.
    - Priorities shift frequently and staff takes blame for inability to hit target dates.
    - Unprofessional and occasionally abusive communication from senior IT management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management knows what the issue is from many exit interviews and knows what would be required to change the situation.

    Superior Technology - negative work environment

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Woodland Hills, CA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Woodland Hills, CA

    I worked at Corptax full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The software is great with many loyal customers.

    Cons

    Poor management is the issue. Releases are not planned and work load is heavy ALL year. Be prepared to work 7 days a week - including holidays! Money is the bottom line, not employees or customers. Poor communication within the executive committee trickles down and causes all the extra man hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start implementing true Agile development to focus your work processes more efficiently. Really give your employees respect and learn their value. Train management at all levels - some Directors are poor leaders and have been promoted due to seniority and not because of their skills. Many inappropriate and disrespectful remarks by leadership create a negative work environment. I feel lucky to have escaped this sweatshop mentality.
