    I have been working at The CSI Companies full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Friendly staff. With an open floor plan you can sometimes hear conversations that recruiters have with potential candidates. It's refreshing to hear positive conversations that end in laughter.

    Cons

    If on an hourly position, the timesheet process can be a tad bit frustrating. It's on real-time, and clocking in/out 4 times a day is a bit much. I recommend an iphone/android app to make the process easier.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have worked at CSI roughly for 6 months. Relocating to a new state, there was a big apprehension on how my transition would be into a new work place. To my surprise it was a smooth and quite exciting transition. My coworkers, or then employees, were friendly, helpful and eager to add me to the team. Coming from a different background of work, I felt supported and even received guidance on any questions (small or big) that I had.
    It’s a shame to read some of the reviews that have made CSI to be a “boys club.” I don’t get that vibe at all. Although everyone is entitled to their own opinion, I’m here to express that CSI is a very fun and professional place to work. They say you’ll come across a few exciting jobs in your lifetime that you will never forget and this place will definitely be added to my list. I’ve also had the pleasure to visit another office and their employees were just as friendly, greeting me with a smile. One of our favorite quotes at CSI is Work Hard. Play Hard. We definitely are about business and respect one another while getting the job done. But we also have a friendly side with open communication and no one should feel like an outcast.

    Boys Club, laziness rewarded... Competence ignored.

    I worked at The CSI Companies

    Pros

    Some good people stuck working here. Really great to work with people in every division. Company hires on personality.

    Cons

    Immature management (particularly in professional division), boys club culture, company NOT growing, HR is a joke, UNSTABLE... Fear of position being eliminated is a constant for many. Company is a dead end job for anyone not in a Sales position or best friends with an executive. If you went to college, don't waste your time... You're probably better than this place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on having a professional atmosphere and less on having a 'fun one'. Seeing a grown woman manager act like the leader of a high school popular girl clique is extremely disconcerting. Favoritism is a bad trait to have in management. Furthermore, please start asking yourself why a company this small needs the incredibly high amount of executives it does? If you really want to make money, trim the fat and start paying attention to what each of your six figure execs are actually DOING. Too much friendship among executives who report to other execs= zero accountability. Who would fire their best friend?

    Pros

    potential to make good $

    Cons

    this company was founded by an individual who pretty much hired all of his high school friends. you're either in the club or you're not. The main office is literally a bunch of Kens and Barbies and is also one big incest pool. Also be prepared to work LONG hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    need better training and professional environment

    Pros

    CSI offers a company culture that really allows you to grow to your full potential. Upper level management is always approachable and they're consistently investing in new resources and training for internal staff. True "Work Hard, Play Hard" environment. If you come to work, ready to go, and give 110% every day, it will be noticed and there's endless potential.

    They also really care about our mental/physical health. There's always someone who you can go to if you need advice/a mentor, and we are heavily involved in charities and day-to-day fitness.

    Best company I've ever worked for. Proud to be an employee here.

    Cons

    Long hours. It's up to you though, you can leave at the end of the day, or you can stay and earn more/grow faster.
