    Pros

    decent pay. casual dresscode. nice facilities

    Cons

    Frequent layoffs. Starting to feel like another ‘FDR’. Its not what you know. Its WHO you know.

    Advice to Management

    Break up the good old boy network. Get out and talk to the employees. The overall mood is very negative. Most employees do not feel valued or feel like they have job security.

    I worked at CSG International full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Casual dress code, great benefits and outstanding new facility in Omaha.

    Cons

    Layoffs are frequent and without any rhyme or reason. (Quick to fire veterans and new employees alike) Workers fear for their jobs constantly, and are very quick to fend for themselves; This crushes any sort of "team" collaboration-based environment, and harms ever level of the company. Company is generally disliked by customers, creating a difficult work setting, especially for those who are customer facing.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach and practice "open communication" with your employees. 10 years ago, the company would gather quarterly for an open discussion on that quarter's financial situation. That is long a thing of the past, and employees who are left in the dark are left speculate constantly.

    Pros

    Can work from home if there is a need.

    Cons

    No career path and NO opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest about layoffs so that employees can prepare for unemployment. Invest more time in caring about the employees. This will boost morale overall.

    I worked at CSG International full-time

    Pros

    There is nothing that is a positive in working there

    Cons

    Completely inept leaders - no understanding of what it takes to run a business. Annual layoffs, low pay, worse benefits. No respect for employees. Leaders lead by "do as I say not as I do"

    Pros

    No good things except good at one thing that is flexible to work from home

    Cons

    Even the un-experienced employees also can become managers at this company. Any thing can happen in this company
    from the past 2-3 years there are no projects implemented successfully there is no improvement in revenue of the company as a result to compensate lot of laid-offs due to lack of experience for the managers they don't know how to keep there employees feel there job is secure and safe. as a lot of moves from company looking for better opportunities outside of the company

    If they don't meet the revenue they meet by laying off the employees.
    At this company you should have the command and dont fear about reporting back to the higher authorities these are the things that are going on for the past 2-3 years

    Advice to Management

    MAKE THE EXPERIENCE PEOPLE AS MANAGER

    Pros

    There are nice people who work at CSG International and I'm happy to call some of them friends.

    Cons

    CSG International has a serious problem with the 'good ol boys' network. Cronyism is rampant in most technical leadership positions of the company. As a result, many management level employees are simply inept in most respects.


  9. "Lead"

    Pros

    Zero growth potential at this place.

    Cons

    Worst place for immigrants - specifically south east Asians. They will severely underpay you because they sponsor your visa/green card. Also once you get your GC you will be asked to repay the GC expenses if you leave within a year of receiving it(technically even after having spent years on I140 stattus.)

    Pros

    The senior software developers here are really nice. The summer outing is really fun. The MSDN subscription is nice. FREE POPCORN <3

    Cons

    My boss/ scrum master had no idea how to be a servant leader. He never took the time understand any of any of the issues I faced. The team I was on was in complete chaos all the time.
    Promotions seemed to be based on friendships. If I stayed here I would have been a level 1 developer for 10 years. It is definitely the type of place you have to leave and then come back to get a raise.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to empower jr. developers! Invest in training managers to work with jr. developers.
