    Pros

    Zero growth potential at this place.

    Cons

    Worst place for immigrants - specifically south east Asians. They will severely underpay you because they sponsor your visa/green card. Also once you get your GC you will be asked to repay the GC expenses if you leave within a year of receiving it(technically even after having spent years on I140 stattus.)

    Pros

    There are nice people who work at CSG International and I'm happy to call some of them friends.

    Cons

    CSG International has a serious problem with the 'good ol boys' network. Cronyism is rampant in most technical leadership positions of the company. As a result, many management level employees are simply inept in most respects.

    Pros

    No good things except good at one thing that is flexible to work from home

    Cons

    Even the un-experienced employees also can become managers at this company. Any thing can happen in this company from the past 2-3 years there are no projects implemented successfully there is no improvement in revenue of the company as a result to compensate lot of laid-offs due to lack of experience for the managers they don't know how to keep there employees feel there job is secure and safe. as a lot of moves from company looking for better opportunities outside of the company If they don't meet the revenue they meet by laying off the employees. At this company you should have the command and dont fear about reporting back to the higher authorities these are the things that are going on for the past 2-3 years

    Advice to Management

    MAKE THE EXPERIENCE PEOPLE AS MANAGER

    Pros

    There is nothing that is a positive in working there

    Cons

    Completely inept leaders - no understanding of what it takes to run a business. Annual layoffs, low pay, worse benefits. No respect for employees. Leaders lead by "do as I say not as I do"

    Pros

    well paid, global (option for travel) great CEO

    Cons

    poor low-level management, gossip/backstabbing culture, one rule for you another for us. My time at CSG was punctuated with odd, conflicting & downright confusing instructions based on things with zero effect on how I performed. Furthermore, I strongly advise bending a knee to the office queen(s) or your life will be made difficult. my first 6 months at CSG was spent trying to figure out how appease the cats & work effectively at the same time. strangest office environment I have ever worked in and I have worked in a few, in different areas / continents as well. do not be fooled by the money, arbitrary popularity rules this place. left 4+ months ago now happily settled in to competitor :-)

    Advice to Management

    focus on results as opposed to what your girlfriends whisper to you

    Pros

    Can work from home if there is a need.

    Cons

    No career path and NO opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest about layoffs so that employees can prepare for unemployment. Invest more time in caring about the employees. This will boost morale overall.

    Pros

    Casual dress code, great benefits and outstanding new facility in Omaha.

    Cons

    Layoffs are frequent and without any rhyme or reason. (Quick to fire veterans and new employees alike) Workers fear for their jobs constantly, and are very quick to fend for themselves; This crushes any sort of "team" collaboration-based environment, and harms ever level of the company. Company is generally disliked by customers, creating a difficult work setting, especially for those who are customer facing.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach and practice "open communication" with your employees. 10 years ago, the company would gather quarterly for an open discussion on that quarter's financial situation. That is long a thing of the past, and employees who are left in the dark are left speculate constantly.

    Pros

    decent pay. casual dresscode. nice facilities

    Cons

    Frequent layoffs. Starting to feel like another ‘FDR’. Its not what you know. Its WHO you know.

    Advice to Management

    Break up the good old boy network. Get out and talk to the employees. The overall mood is very negative. Most employees do not feel valued or feel like they have job security.
