    I have been working at CSG Systems International full-time

    Pros

    Pretty flexible work schedule. Casual dress code. Super nice people. Decent pay. Broad use of technology provides many job opportunities.

    Cons

    Not the company it used to be. Seems to be confused on if it wants to go wide or go deep. Chicago influence has changed the once-wonderful Omaha / Denver culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many major changes all at once. No one feels setup to succeed.

    Pros

    CSG is a great place to work, the work is challenging and the coworkers are great. The benefits are good and the managers treat you with respect. The culture and values of the company are great, it feels like a family and you are treated like one.

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons currently. The clients are demanding as should be expected.

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

    Pros

    Very good source control and build management.
    Most people are great to work with.
    Usually up to date with latest software.
    Causal dress code.
    Flexible hours accommodate people whose children have early morning school activities.

    Thanks to some good management choices, software development practices visibly improved over what they used to be in 2008.

    Cons

    Frequent layoffs in the past 5 years.
    Several multi-million dollar project failures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I watched members of another development team quit one after another after another due to one specific toxic individual. How did management allow this to happen?

    Pros

    Great benefits and ok pay for area.

    Cons

    If your not part of the 'in' crowd, then your labeled and pushed out. Promoting is not easy unless you want hard hours. HR will not get back to you after your leave the company, even after multiple calls and emails.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should take stock in your employees and not see them as a cash cow.

    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 Pretty outdated technically considering they are a software company.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 an 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.

    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.
