    Pros

    VERY Friendly atmosphere. Management treated staff exceptionally

    Cons

    I'm curious that as a lead temp for a perm position, I was told there would be "budget cuts", giving me 3 days notice. I found out from a female friend the next week that they offered her a full time spot.
    curious that there were no other men working in that department..

    Advice to Management

    Be open, and lose biases

    Pros

    Working at CSG has been a great opportunity to grow professionally in a variety of capacities. There are ample opportunities for ambitious employees to participate in projects outside one's primary job to gain new experiences. If you're open with management about your interests and demonstrate your abilities, you can really get a lot out of working here.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is difficult for key employees.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management is often insulated by layers of management filtering information. Some of the best insight can be gained by simply walking around peoples' desks and chatting a few minutes a week.

  3. Ok company.

    Nice people. Benefits are good.

    Pros

    Time off is ok. Some nice people work there.

    Cons

    Disorganized company that really has know idea where it is going, only that it can't remain where it's been. Work life balance is often skewed between employees. No creativity or original ideas allowed.

    Advice to Management

    Try respecting and including the people you lean on to make this company money. Inclusiveness, organization, real goals and leadership are all sorely lacking here.

    Exciting place to work. Lots of new initiatives being worked on and passionate team working on team oriented goals.

    With so much going on there sometimes is a lack of focus on closing out a project.

    Keep driving home change, all for the better and long overdue.

    Pros

    I've worked for CSG for over 3 years now. I've seen a lot of great changes occur since I've joined. One of the reasons I joined was because of the culture at CSG. I noticed it was very team oriented and collaborative, which I think it still holds true today. Everyone is so friendly and willing to work together. I have also been promoted within the company in my time here, and have seen many more internal promotions happen in the past few years. The PTO they provide is also great!

    Cons

    Although they do provide great PTO, I would love to see a few more holidays. That's really the only con I can think of which isn't that bad!!

    Advice to Management

    I've seen communication get much better in the last few years, and I just want to continue seeing that get even better.

    Pros

    The best part, for me, was the independence. I feel like they trusted me to do my job the way it worked for me and without needing to monitor me constantly.

    Cons

    The only real con was working for a company that's based in a different area. I only met with my superiors a hand full of times, and never met a few coworkers.

  11. A total disaster

    Pros

    I love screw in lightbulbs that is the most wonderful job thank you CSG. Oh I forgot about the air Raiders for the same too that was always fun

    Cons

    It would probably be easier to try to name the positives but there are none. You have a bunch of kids running an office that think they know business but in reality don't even know what time of the day it is. And if you think I'm joking go ahead and go work there you will soon see it will be the worst mistake. All of the good people have left there the only people that are left are simply folks who can't get employed elsewhere. They have let every smart individual go and slip through their fingers

    Advice to Management

    Clean out the Nashville office there is nothing good coming out of that sewer
