    Great Company, Great People

    IT Vice President (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsA great place to work, positive can do attitude that fosters collaboration. They practice what they preach in term of treating people with respect and as a result, people from diverse backgrounds enjoy success at the company. Their graduate program is also very good.

    ConsWhile a great company, the red tape can be at times very frustrating. It takes a while to get people through the hiring process particularly when it is close to the end of year. The best time to join CS in my opinion is February or March, when recruitment budgets are open.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCut the red tape
