    I worked at CSG Systems International full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    CSG is a mid-sized company with a smaller-company feel. The people are dedicated and hardworking, and generally friendly. During my time with CSG I was able to take on a variety of assignments and roles, most of which were fulfilling and interesting. The benefits are very good - the longer you're there, the more vacation time you get, and the more they contribute to your 401k. The health plan is a bit pricey, but fairly standard. There is definite forward momentum in the technology side of things, as they continually endeavor to improve and adopt new technological standards and disciplines.

    Cons

    Heaven help you if it looks like they'll miss their numbers for the year, because out comes the layoff axe if they do. Try as they might, they can't seem to diversify much from their core business of relying on the cable/satellite giants for the majority of their revenue. Translation: as goes business for the cable companies, so goes business for CSG. Constant competition from Amdocs and the like make for a spartan company mindset. Stock price never goes anywhere.

    Former Employee - Senior Software Development Engineer in Omaha, NE (US)

    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.
