    Pros

    well paid, global (option for travel) great CEO

    Cons

    poor low-level management, gossip/backstabbing culture, one rule for you another for us. My time at CSG was punctuated with odd, conflicting & downright confusing instructions based on things with zero effect on how I performed. Furthermore, I strongly advise bending a knee to the office queen(s) or your life will be made difficult. my first 6 months at CSG was spent trying to figure out how appease the cats & work effectively at the same time. strangest office environment I have ever worked in and I have worked in a few, in different areas / continents as well. do not be fooled by the money, arbitrary popularity rules this place. left 4+ months ago now happily settled in to competitor :-)

    Advice to Management

    focus on results as opposed to what your girlfriends whisper to you

    Pros

    CSG is a true meritocracy. If you are smart and work hard, you will be rewarded. Much of the senior leadership has been developed from within.

    Cons

    There is real uncertainty about the North American cable/DBS space's future. CSG has a history of strategic under-commitment.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify, Invest, and understand the current company. The winning strategy will be derived from understanding what CSG does well, and how you create value, today.

    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.

    Pros

    CSG has a casual culture; you can work from home occasionally, and there is not really a dress code. It is easy to talk to whoever you need to get something done.

    Cons

    The casual culture means people that have been here forever are stubborn and stuck in their ways. There are bad eggs, just like at every company. Luckily, working around them isn't hard.
