    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.

    I have been working at CSG International full-time

    Pros

    Solid place to work, you'll be out the door at 5 every night. Most employees, especially the old timers, are nice midwesterners. The work is easy and pay is OK to competitive (of course this always depends on the individual's situation). You can't slack though as there are layoffs every/most years for bottom performers.

    Cons

    You don't need to be a business genius to see the writing on the wall for the cable industry. But that's OK, there is a healthy amount of turnover from people staying around to get a bit of experience and moving on. Management does not make it an issue.

    Advice to Management

    CSG's entry-level hiring is all about looking for diamonds in the rough which works out OK as there is lots of room for advancement for good performers (except for development teams notably). In my opinion management shouldn't be as afraid to drop cash on good entry-level hires.

    Pros

    Good midwestern ideas and culture built this company and provided decades worth of profitability and good jobs for a number of folks. Easy going and professional environment.

    Cons

    Good midwestern ideas and culture are leaving through the exits. Management has been searching for the new great thing for the last 10 years and has decided to let go of a lot of the things that made it great and bet on risky ventures. Acquisitions have failed to result in new revenue or business. Growth is flat + inflation +acquisition growth. No opportunity for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on domestic technology for cable customers, not international growth in risky markets.
