    Pros

    If you're interested in learning, taking a leadership role, product design, then RSG provides an unparalleled opportunity for career growth. You must be proactive and energetic to take advantage of these opportunities.

    Cons

    Some of the developers are "order takers" rather than "order makers." It would be better if everyone were to work as a team rather than the client / customer type relationships that exist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure to convey achievable strategic goals throughout the company so there's a common motivation and focus.

    I worked at RSG Media Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are avenues for upward mobility -- they tend to promote from within.

    Cons

    Software Engineers have to deal with that managerial compulsion to offshore dev work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sure you can guys in India to work for cents on the dollar; but you'll get what you pay for -- the best software engineering minds are right here in the US; this is the primary reason RSG couldn't make a dent in the digital media space.

    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

    I worked at RSG Media Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    RSG is a small size company. I worked @ RSG for more than 3 years. Being a small company you get a lot of visibility. More work Satisfaction. Better Appraisals.

    Cons

    Being a small company, Under performers are fired too quickly. One has to be in a positive limelight to leave a impression and enjoy the benefis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is less stress on processes, standards. Due to this there is lot of rework on technical side and there is lot of pressure in product development team.
    Most of the management team is untrained in managing people and projects.

    Incompetent management driven by loyalist mindset

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at RSG Media Systems

    Pros

    Media domain niche, industry relationships

    Cons

    Highly incompetent management, privately controlled by an individual who does whatever he wants to like a king surrounded by his loyal deputies who are either too incompetent to move somewhere else at the same salary level or who don't care except the monthly paycheck. Cronyism, lack of integrity are rampant. Trust and respect is lacking in the culture. It's a sweat shop which is dilapidated and will close down in a short time as there is no publicly known exit or succession plan. The setup is similar to the small time single proprietor driven restaurants or small time fashion houses with very rich owner and overworked staff. Avoid this place at any cost for your career and your business...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan an exit strategy

    My experience at RSG has been very enjoyable - thanks to my colleagues who make a very friendly environment.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at RSG Media Systems

    Pros

    1. The work environment created by employees is simply great.
    2. There is not much of a hierarchy in terms of senior and junior.
    3. RSG's domain is very unique and interesting.
    4. RSG provides an opportunity to have hands on experience on multiple technologies.
    5. Trainings on different technologies and projects - started of well but has been dormant for quite some time now. Still, it is a very good initiative.

    Cons

    1. There is no vision - or may be I'm not aware of one (if any exists) - This would mean that either the company does not have a vision of if it has one, it is not propagated to the mass.
    2. Often, an employee's growth is overlooked by the company's growth. In fact, the company is least bothered about an employee's growth.
    3. There is serious lack of leadership in the company to keep the employees motivated.
    4. Unfortunately, the managers are unable to manage the work efficiently. The distribution of work load is extremely unorganized.
    5. Business is done on the basis of contacts - I think this is the biggest downside for an organization which is more than 25 years old.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would advice the management to re-strategize the policies. Most importantly, earn a reputation to get business rather than just contacts. Define the processes clearly. Respect your building blocks (developers and testers), without whom RSG could never have come this far. Improve the hiring process - look our for attitude rather than just technologies known and years of experience.
