An Insider's view of CSC Corptax

How does your team reward individual success?

A job well done is recognized. Your boss will reach out to say thank you. With our development teams being mostly remote, handwritten cards have been sent as a thank you for hard work, which, to me, goes a long way. Also, for those in an office, HR tends to reward us around releases with a pizza party or catered lunch.

Kathryn

project manager

What projects are you most excited about?

We’re always looking at current versions of software that’s available, but also the direction our customers and the industry is going. We may implement things within a product now, knowing it’ll take three to five years to really take off, but understanding that if we plan correctly, we can use that to our advantage going forward.

Mike

manager, Sales Enablement

How does the company support your career growth?

My managers and my team definitely support me in my goals. When I say ‘here’s the project I want to do,’ they are more than happy to give me the time or resources to get that project done. Because at the end of the day, it helps the company, it helps the managers, it helps everybody. That’s something I really like about [CSC Corptax].

Halley

senior software engineer

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

One thing that’s really important to me—and I explain this to my team all the time—is that they are important. So I check in with my team and I try to build relationships with each member. It’s really important to me that my team knows I’m engaged and I understand they have a life outside of CSC Corptax.

Audrey

team lead, Product Management

What makes someone successful on your team?

You’ll do well here if you take pride in your work, are willing to learn new things, and share the knowledge you have with others—because you’ll quickly see that you don’t get a whole lot done on your own. You need to work as a team here. Being patient with others as you’re transferring knowledge is the best way to move ahead.

Steve

manager, International Content Management Design
