Pros

CGS is a results-oriented organization and for this reason if you are willing to do the work you are recognized by both your peers and leadership.

Leadership encourages constructive feedback and is open to new ideas. It's refreshing to see a CEO/President who are so involved in the day-to-day operations and take such an interest in the details.

The company is financially solid and debt-free. I don't know of many organizations of this size that can say that. This is because of the company's disciplined approach to managing resources, which in this market is a definite plus for job security.

Cons

It's a large organization so communication can be a challenge. The organization could use more structure with respect to management/reporting (which appear to be in the works given the company's growth initiatives so this is good news).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue soliciting feedback from employees/partners. Understand what drives CGS employees. Some may be driven by financial success, others by recognition, some may be a combination of both, etc. Ensuring that employees are all moving in the same direction, working toward a unified vision, and appreciated for their hard work/dedication are key to achieving an engaged/satisfied workforce and a successful organization.

    Sketchy and conflicting communication wrapped in a fear based culture

    Pros

    There sure aren't many pros to working here.
    ...Nice neighborhood and public building areas
    ...Good bunch of workers at CGS who try hard, deserve better, and should set their sights somewhere else.

    Cons

    ...Employees taken for granted and treated like a step above wayward children. No appreciation, no niceties, no fun. No concept of worker satisfaction = greater production = more profit.
    ...Uncaring atmosphere. Hospitalized or grieving employees don't get as much as a card.
    ...Employees generally morbidly unhappy.
    ...Poor insurance coverage which is expensive for employees.
    ...No casual days, no comp time, no working from home, no summer hours, no employee trust.
    ...It's always and forever about the bottom line.
    ...Over promise, under deliver to customers - half my job is apologizing for missing a deadline.
    ...Antiquated computers and systems. I guess I always expected a tech company to have technology.
    ...Company will not pay for skills training or continued learning. Something else one would think a tech company would support thoroughly.
    ...Company generally misses the point like Glassdoor and other reviews having to be earned rather than solicited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go public, infuse money into system upgrades and employees.

    More frequent meetings with employes to tell what's happening in the company. Be sure to recognize accomplishments and work well done.
