    Pros

    Diverse group of people both culturally and professionally
    Strong Senior Management Team
    Everybody counts/matters approach
    International Organization
    High Quality Products with a focus on precision, accuracy and overall excellence.

    Cons

    Some systems/practices are a bit outdated but Management is aware and working to implement new technologies

    It would be nice if there were more opportunities for employees to connect outside of work via team-building, activities, recreation, etc. Several internal surveys have shown that his provides a boost in morale and cooperation.

    Advice to Management

    Continue down the path of supporting your employees both professionally and personally. It is noticed and makes everyone willing to go that extra mile which truly makes us a "Premier Organization."

    Pros

    I enjoy my job, been with the company for 15 years and not interested in looking elsewhere. There are high expectations and challenging projects, but we have a great workforce comprised of diversified talents that has enabled us to meet those goals. The culture fosters a positive and open teamwork environment which is constantly changing towards continuous improvement and developing new technologies. The workforce is comprised of people of various age groups and from all different ethnic backgrounds. Although very busy, for the most part everyone is friendly, respectful, caring and we do try to have fun while doing our jobs. Communication is key and is improving within as well as across business units.

    Cons

    Change is challenging and can be overwhelming with the current resources. Because of the fast pace and ambitious schedules, at times details can get over looked leading into bigger issues further down the road.

    Salaries are competitive but would like to see it at the higher end of the spectrum for all job types, given the technology and the type of work we do.

    Advice to Management

    As corporate shared services are being implemented further, we need to ensure efforts are being taken to make them an integrated part of the local business unit workforce. I’ve seen evidence of success here, but would like it to be consistent across all support functions.

    Leadership forums are energizing and important for common vision and culture. We skipped a year and hopefully will be able to bring it back next year.

    Grateful for the 401K Plan, but a true pension plan would be nice:)

    Pros

    * very good work/life balance
    * very nice people to work with
    * good salary and benefits
    * family-oriented company

    Cons

    We are currently in our "old" offices but scheduled to move very soon - over the summer of '15 - to our brand new offices and I can't wait to leave our old, sad & outdated looking cubicles. Unfortunately, this move will mean a longer commute for me.

    Pros

    1) Diverse and global network of employees that are very friendly.
    2) Managers/peers are approachable; you really do get a sense of comaraderie and teamwork.
    3) Exposure to a wide array of technology; very steep learning curve.

    Cons

    No major cons. CST is a growing company trying to forge it's path; therefore there is some necessary amount of changes in order to achieve its long term goals.

    Advice to Management

    Continue investing in technology and resources. CST has a great potential for growth, but it must also pay attention to create a strong infrastructure to handle the growth.

    Pros

    Really great group of people to work with - talented, not ego driven, feels like a new family. There is no discrimination. Many women in upper management. Diverse group from all nationalities and backgrounds. Upper management motto is to "have fun!" and this does trickle down. Very challenging work. If you don't like change and like to do things the same old way this is not the place to be.

    Cons

    This is a con in every company - communication. But everyone at this company is open to suggestions to improve this.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Great job!

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules are supported, family life and work life balance is encouraged. I'm able to go to my kids events when needed. You do have to work hard and at times the hours are long. You can organize how you work which makes it easier. Accountability is part of the culture. Lots of change.

    Cons

    High expectations, fast paced, lot of change which some people don't appreciate.
