    Pros

    Its one of the companies, where you dont have the pressure of being on time for work.
    Its a relaxed place where you are free to work from home whenever you want. Excellent work-life balance.. no extra/ overtime. Really enthusiatic people to work around with. Especially the chicago office is full of young and energetic professionals.

    Pros

    * Having been part of an R&D team since the beginning, its been a great experience to work on cutting edge technology.
    * Friendly folks and teams
    * If you are considering Omaha, its a great place to settle down with low cost housing and short commutes.

    Cons

    * Lot of politics goes at the management level.
    * Salaries are not great (if you are coming from the west or east coast) , but its on par with companies in the mid west.
    * If you don't get into the R&D teams, then day to day work can get monotonous *mainly for the adventurous folks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont have much insight into management, but from the outside it looks great , esp if looking for career growth.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    Pros

    The work environment is pretty friendly
    Very casual dress code is a bonus
    Benefits are above average from what I know about.

    Cons

    Information passed down from upper management is much too vague and generic.
    A lot of situations where the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is up to.
    Quick to bring the hammer down on what is viewed from upper management as a problem but extremely slow to reverse when the situation shows it's justified.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to find a way to truly communicate better with the average employee. They do a good job at regular generic updates but those just don't seem to be effective.
