In addition, the benefits are robust.

Giving back to the communities where we work and live around the world is in our DNA. Our Corporate Philanthropy team is made up of a dedicated group of employees who help support our philanthropy partners with the amazing work they do. And our employees around the world are the positive energy that fuels and supports all the important projects that make a direct impact on our communities! Below are the organizations we support directly:
The Patriot Foundation: Since 2003 this fine organization has focused on providing scholarships and aid for children of soldiers who were killed or injured from Fort Bragg.
Breastcancer.org: Breastcancer.org was created in 2000 to address the need for accessible, understandable, and compassionate information about breast cancer diagnosis and treatment issues.
The American Heart Association: This organization is the oldest, largest voluntary organization devoted to fighting cardiovascular disease.
Big Brothers/Big Sisters: Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 6 through 18, in communities across the globe to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one mentoring relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
American Red Cross: Red Cross volunteers and staff work to deliver vital services – from providing relief and support to those in crisis, to helping people be prepared to respond in emergencies.
The philanthropy program also provides an employee matching donation, and each year we have a Global Day of Service where every employee around the world – over 1,000 people – volunteer in their communities on the same day. From our team in London to Sao Paulo, Brazil, and all our global locations in between, we’ve heard it said by many employees that its now their favorite day of the year!
Our employees enjoy the opportunity to initiate grass roots efforts to support organizations through our Community Connections program. They have ranged from the Red Cross to Alex’s Lemonade Stand to the Working Wardrobe. This team also leads many of the fun activities that take place at Vertex.
The Vertex Wellness Program is designed to help employees make lifestyle changes that can lead to better health. The program combines activities and educational opportunities focused on some of the key points of healthy living: preventative care, increased physical activity, improved eating habits, and healthy eating. A team of employees helps promote wellness with onsite health screenings, fitness programs, and wellness events.
Vertex also offers the "More to Life" Employee Assistance Program. This program is designed to help employees address a range of topics and issues—including legal, financial, everyday living, family and caregiving, health and wellness, and emotional well-being.
At Vertex, our employees come from a variety of locations and backgrounds, connected by a culture built on collaboration, innovation, and respect. Our friendly and supportive culture allows us to put the customer at the center of everything we do. It's what makes Vertex a top place to work year after year.

create a collaborative work environment
deliver outstanding performance

Company culture can be defined as “the way that you get work done.” The way that we get work done here is purpose-driven, collaborative, customer-centric, and is grounded in treating each other with respect.
From that keystone foundation, we enjoy working on productive teams and thrive on having a friendly and fun work environment. It’s one of the reasons we were named a Top Workplace in Philadelphia for the past six years. Ask anyone who finished their first day here why they like it, and what they’ll probably say is “everyone is so friendly!”
Ours is a unique workplace centered around the belief that if people are treated with respect, enjoy their work, and have fun while doing it, our customers will benefit. Over 40 years of continuous growth seems to support that belief!

Life at Vertex
If you’re wondering why such talented people chose to work at Vertex and what they like best about working here, we’ll let them tell you.
"The size of Vertex and the amazing culture make it possible for me to feel empowered and engaged in my work each day. I’ve enjoyed building connections with high performing team members that center on respect, support, collaboration, and a lot of fun. It’s fulfilling to be part of a company that that is committed to continuously improving experiences—from engaging the employees, to supporting our customers, to innovating our product suite."
"I looked into joining Vertex because I had seen them consistently listed as one of the top places to work and read some of the employee testimonials online. This was supported throughout the interview process and the enthusiasm I heard confirmed that this was the right choice for me. If you are looking for a growing company with a great culture, look no further."
EMEA - Account Executive
"Having previously worked at larger companies such as SAP and Oracle, it seemed exciting to work with a smaller company and an exciting product area. I really like the very high competence of those I work with and everyone seems very dedicated to doing their best."
"The thing I love the most about Vertex is definitely the culture. Working at an organization where everyone deeply cares about one another, our customers, and the work we do has been inspiring. The Winning Way is ingrained in everything that we do and the interactions I have with our team. Working here has been an awesome experience."
"What I like most about Vertex is that we are a part of two key industries. Those two industries are tax and technology. They are both an essential part of our world today and both have a major part in the advancement of making our world a better place both economically and simplistically. At Vertex, we help our customers to successfully fulfill their taxing obligations to tax jurisdictions which in turn has a favorable impact to taxpayers in their community."
"If I had to describe the culture at Vertex, what immediately comes to mind is: encouraging, collaborative, and family. It's a space where co-workers motivate and challenge each other to work with passion and purpose. You can feel the teamwork mindset every day since all projects are completed with heavy collaboration and open communication. And my favorite part of our culture is that behind every conversation and connection at Vertex are co-workers who treat you like family, respect you, and truly care about your success."
"The People-First approach and a friendly work environment is what makes us different. Vertex offers great pay, benefits, work-life balance, and a clearly defined career path. The main difference between Vertex and the other companies where I previously worked is that when I wake up in the morning, I LOOK FORWARD to going to work. There is always something challenging and intellectually stimulating happening at work."
"I have worked for four previous companies and NONE have compared to Vertex. The culture is amazing and so friendly. My supervisor is respectful, understanding, flexible, and amazing to work with! We know this industry is constantly changing and Vertex is so amazing at changing with it in order to help our customer base. Their response to COVID-19 has been nothing short of perfect! They care for their employees and constantly do everything they can to ensure our happiness!"
Managed Services Outsourcing
"Two things I like most about Vertex are the culture and the career opportunity. Vertex has a fun work environment along with a flexible work lifestyle! I enjoy going into work and collaborating with my coworkers whether on a special project or our daily task. Possibly the best part about working here is the work-life balance. I was able to complete my MBA part-time while continuing to work full-time which then assisted me in obtaining a different role here at Vertex!"
"I really like how Vertex recognizes individuals who are driven and motivated. This allows for growth and the opportunity to exceed expectations within the workplace. They provide a work-life balance and flexibility which is beneficial for a healthy lifestyle. We are focused on being customer-centric which aligns with my individual goals as a Vertex Consultant. A corporate goal that matches individual employee goals typically leads to success for both the individual and business."
"I joined Vertex because the focus was on what I know and not about what I did not. I did not have experience in the tax space, something I could learn. The focus was on the value I could bring to the table as a leader, a change agent, and the opportunity to leverage my experience with an organization looking to transform and grow."
