An Insider's view of Carminati Consulting

What’s the vibe like in the office?

From the first day that I started, I immediately felt welcomed and a part of the team. This is a testament of the people that we are able to bring in and the culture that has been put in place by the current staff. Whenever everyone is in the office it’s great to go and get lunch or just catch up. We are a close-knit family.

What projects are you most excited about?

When we partner with Chicago health agencies to streamline operations, allowing them to focus on what matters. Our team reduces repetitive, manual work by automating processes and improving data quality to allow for faster outreach, care and complex case resolution. It’s rewarding that my daily work makes a difference in the city in which I live.

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

By recognizing outdated and underserved corners of the market we've been able to help our clients be more productive while still outputting high quality work. Using the latest tech, libraries, and design concepts, our software provides a responsive interface that is easy to use, looks great, and performs efficiently. We are creating the future.

What are some social events your company does?

Our social events are something I look forward to and really appreciate about our culture. One especially fun night was our 2018 Holiday party. Each employee was tasked with purchasing a "Funko Pop" totaling $15 they felt best personified the team member they picked in a grab bag. We all had a wonderful night of laughs, good food and team bonding.
