Once a good company to work for, now a poorly run company.

Current Employee - Software Engineer in Chicago, IL

I have been working at CCC Information Services full-time

Pros

1) Some projects are interesting.
2) Still some good employees left (both newly hired and long time employees) who believes in working as a team and helping one another.
2) There is a few good managers left who actually know how to manage projects and teams.
3) Good location.
4) Decent pay and benefits.

Cons

1) Poor leadership at the senior management level brought in by the previous CTO, who was asked to resign.
2) A lot of bad managers brought in by the previous CTO still work here.
3) Work/life balance all depends on who you work for.
4) A lot of products are based on older technologies. Company is afraid of real technology transformation.
5) Some legacy products are in need of overhaul, but management is not willing to spend the resources.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of senior management brought in by the previous CTO. They have no plan and merely reacts to customer. Sometimes they change their decisions daily.

Start real technology transformation.

    I have been working at CCC Information Services full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people are great. The business is interesting.

    Cons

    The company enables people to move into diffrent departments. If you get a manager that does not like your sucess well you have a problem. I have to say I did not come accross many of them at CCC however they are there. My suggestion keep your eyes and ears open and network within the company.

    Former Employee - Lead Software Engineer in Chicago, IL
    Former Employee - Lead Software Engineer in Chicago, IL

    I worked at CCC Information Services full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    1. A handful number of good people who are hoping that company will get better are still around.

    2. The CEO was very engaged a few years ago. He would move around the cubicles, talk to personnel and was genuinely interested in the employees.

    3. Some of the executive management team such as service delivery executive management interacts with the employees and keeps engaged with her team.

    4.The CTO for the last year and half was requested to move on.

    5. Nothing else to speak as a "Pro" for the company anymore.
        In the past, there were many "Pros".

    Cons

    Just the number of reviews of the company and not-good state of affairs as outlined by numerous folks (on glassdoor) in the past year sums up the state of this company.

    1. All the good HR folks who believed in HR as a function are no longer with the company.
    The current HR personnel do not look out for the employees and none of the exit interview information has ever been considered.

    2. Most of the VPs and Directors in the company today are folks from the former CTO, and they have no business knowledge, people management skills or technical skills.
    They make decisions just by instinct without a strategy. They do not understand technology and decisions are made by gut.

    3. The former CTO folks are always on a witch-hunting mission, trying to paint a bad picture about folks who have left (which shows the importance of the former employees even today) and tarnish the good image and good deeds of the former employees.
    They create slides and presentations to the CEO and other executive personnel, mentioning about how bad the systems and existing CCC folks are, without even understanding the systems and the existing CCC folks.

    If the systems and existing CCC folks were so bad a year ago, then how come the company was so profitable all these years and there was still growth and potential in the company is a question that has been left unanswered.

    In summary, the company lacks good leadership personnel and any folks joining now will end up reporting to the former CTO folks.
    So, please do think about it.

    4. The damage that was done to CCC in the last year and half when the former CTO was around is unrepairable.
    All the bright, knowledgeable and efficient/hardworking technical folks and management folks decided to take their skills elsewhere and moved on from the company.
    These bright, knowledgeable and efficient folks put in countless hours in the company to build a great architecture, applications and systems.
    And they have moved on to better positions in other companies and being recognized in their new companies.

    The remaining few good folks are just waiting to move on.

    5. For newbies, if you have a choice, please review this posting and all the postings about CCC and take a good and knowledgeable decision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. The bright folks who left the company have talked to you and have given you the big picture.
    2. Please talk to the remaining good folks in the company.
    3. Please let go these VPs and directors of the previous regimes (the former CTO and the previous management too)
    4. Please take decisions in a timely fashion.
