Advice to ManagementAdvice

Quit micro managing, you are not that good at it. Fire the people who do not contribute to the bottom line. Don't fire the ones who are honest and ethical.

    Former Employee - Technology Org in Deerfield, IL

    I worked at Corptax full-time

    Pros

    - Higher salary compared to local market, good benefits
    - People in other departments are nice
    - If you enjoy being spoken to like an idiot by leadership, this is the place for you!

    Cons

    - Dev organization does not have work/life balance
    - Releases are not well planned and are whatever leadership feels like doing that week, so dev has to make up for it by working weekends
    - CTO leads dev, tech ops, QA, product, and CODES
    - Move to agile development is in name only, no cultural backing from leadership
    - High turnover: people quit frequently after a short tenure, and people are fired frequently
    - Parent company turns a blind eye to leadership's public verbal abuse of employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone knows what (who) the problem is.

    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer  in  Deerfield, IL
    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Deerfield, IL

    I have been working at Corptax full-time for 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.
