An Insider's view of CPI, the OpenFox Company
What’s the vibe like in the office?
A happy environment with a great culture where I am continuously challenged as the company grows, yet I still enjoy a healthy work-life balance. It is easy working for amazing leaders who care deeply about the company and the employees. That trickles down throughout the company to create a great team culture.
What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?
Working with multiple states means working with 2 technology platforms (Oracle & SQL Server) and of late the Standardization across these 2 platforms is what makes the job challenging and interesting.
Sr. Software Engineer
What are some things you learned at the company?
I have a greater understanding of law enforcement and the work that goes on behind the scenes to keep officers and civilians safe.
How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?
All directors and the executive team have an open door policy. Anyone can bring ideas, issues, suggestions or just talk to company management. Everyone at CPI has a shared calendar and can be invited to join meetings regardless of position or who scheduled them. When meetings cannot be face-to-face, we utilize google hangouts.
National Sales Manager
What are some social events your company does?
We do a lot of optional events on and offsite. We do just about anything on-site from BBQs to bubble hockey & bags tournaments. Offsite, we have happy hours, holiday parties, and some really fun recreational events during our "user's conference" like bowling, bocce, & Top Golf.
What I like working about working at CPI is the people. I laugh at least once every day (even on the "bad" days).

CPI is a great place to work because they treat their workers fairly and with respect, and offer attractive benefits. With celebrations for Chicago Blackhawks and Cubs championships and onsite game room/activities, it is a fun place to work too.
