    Current Employee - Development Operations in Omaha, NE

    I have been working at CSG International full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    CSG has a casual culture; you can work from home occasionally, and there is not really a dress code. It is easy to talk to whoever you need to get something done.

    Cons

    The casual culture means people that have been here forever are stubborn and stuck in their ways. There are bad eggs, just like at every company. Luckily, working around them isn't hard.

    Pros

    Internal communication and marketing is great, and there is a real sense of empowerment to own your role. There is a real mix of cultures due to the acquisitions by CSG, so you can always gravitate towards areas of interest. Genuinely very customer-oriented vendor, so practical experience is highly valued. Very easy going environment, but looks to reward those that go above and beyond. The Benefits are a great package, and compensation is very competitive.

    Cons

    Company has a great focus on anything that impacts the key accounts that provide a very high percentage of their revenue. If you are outside of that workstream, it can get frustrating to get company focus and support. Their is a real clash of cultures within the organization between the original company and the acquisitions, which is still be played out, plus their is a real intent to somewhat maintain the status quo in the original company, which makes entering it very difficult, and even harder to be promoted within it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only advice I would give is that a more long-term strategy to move the company forward needs to be developed as there are too many knee jerk reactions to predictable events. With no assessments of available resources, there is no knowledge of skillsets to drive a global strategy, and consequently, there are going to be continual rounds of cost cutting.

    Current Employee - Senior Software Development Engineer

    I have been working at CSG International full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    * Having been part of an R&D team since the beginning, its been a great experience to work on cutting edge technology.
    * Friendly folks and teams
    * If you are considering Omaha, its a great place to settle down with low cost housing and short commutes.

    Cons

    * Lot of politics goes at the management level.
    * Salaries are not great (if you are coming from the west or east coast) , but its on par with companies in the mid west.
    * If you don't get into the R&D teams, then day to day work can get monotonous *mainly for the adventurous folks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont have much insight into management, but from the outside it looks great , esp if looking for career growth.

    Pros

    Pretty flexible work schedule. Casual dress code. Super nice people. Decent pay. Broad use of technology provides many job opportunities.

    Cons

    Not the company it used to be. Seems to be confused on if it wants to go wide or go deep. Chicago influence has changed the once-wonderful Omaha / Denver culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many major changes all at once. No one feels setup to succeed.
