Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Deerfield, IL
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.
