    I have been working at Community Tax full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Transitioning into a new company in a new city can sometimes be a nightmare. Often with big companies, your opinion is not valued and your dedication is over looked. For me, it was important that I found a company that had integrity, valued customer service, and above all, appreciates hard work. I have had the pleasure of working for Community Tax (CTAX) for about 60 days now and I can honestly say, I have enjoyed every...

    Loving my work environment right now. No Cons to report. I started out as a temp, I was offered a full time position and promoted within two months. Hard work pays off here!

    Advice to Management

    I only ask for consistency. So far management seems committed to continued training and keeping the team motivated. I absolutely love that! Keep up the great work.

    Pros

    There are a bunch of great people working at this company from management all the way to the ground floor. The company goes out of it's way to take care of the employees and they are constantly coming up with new innovative ways to say thank you.

    Cons

    Not really a con but high paced environment with expectations. As long as you're coming to work to work, you'll be fine.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing

    Pros

    This is a great place to work with unlimited earning potential. There truly is an endless amount of leads. This is something I've never experienced in an inbound sales environment before. No cold calling!! And you don't need to work 50+ hours a week to make really good money. Senior sales people and Management are really supportive. It's a great team atmosphere. I can honestly say I love coming into work every...

    Pros

    After a diverse career in outside and inside sales as well as in sales management, making the decision to join Community Tax remains one of the best career moves I have made to date. This company is unafraid to change, take employee suggestions, try new technology, challenge and reward its employees and to include everyone in its community: from sales through finance, HR and its resolution team of licensed practitioners....

    Cons

    Change is uncomfortable. As the company continues to grow and try new processes, it can discourage some who do not share the company's long-sighted vision and focus on short-term challenges. Despite all of the challenges the company continues to grow every year.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to develop and streamline processes to improve sales, growth and ease in sales.

    I worked at Community Tax full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Not much. I left a decent job for this opportunity and wish I had not.

    Cons

    A member from management would ask me out for drinks after work. This made me feel quite uncomfortable. He works remotely and was only in Chicago every now and then. The company seems to have a party culture like "Beer O'clock" parties late in the afternoons on Fridays. Also seems like some people tend to drink or whatever throughout the work day. People tell your manager to stop hitting on employees.

    Advice to Management

    Wow, Just run a company that respects your employees. Do not hit on us. Let us do our jobs with dignity.

    You can move up in salary more quickly. You can get a variety of experience. Working hours flexibility.

    Keep the way management is.
