    I worked at CSG Systems International full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some of the people are wonderful but it depends on what department you work in.
    Easy commute.
    OK Pay.

    Cons

    Old boys club feel. They allow lazy people to stay on. No ambition to move in to the future. Pretty outdated technically considering they are a software company. Lots of management act inappropriately. Tons of favoritism by management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clear out and start over.

    I have been working at CSG Systems International as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    CSG assembled a very strong team to assist with providing the training for an Oracle 12.1 upgrade. Good project management and good people to work with.

    Cons

    The project was daunting and the task to train over 8500 employees on all of the new processes was difficult. Most of the SME's involved were very pro-active but several were difficult to work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Convince the SME's to be more available to the training team.

    Great staff, challenging projects and management respects and values their IT departments.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    Stable work environment. Overall, decent compensation/benefits. Good work gets recognized and rewarded.

    Cons

    Dysfunctional internally.....have trouble believing the company can be competitive in the long term without a major change in management....which did not seem likely while I was employed there. Lots of dead wood , so it's not a good place for a junior IT person to get exposed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make people accountable for bad decisions.
