Great fit if you fit in!

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Calgary, AB (Canada)

ProsYoung and vibrant culture, reputable clients, great team building events, challenging assignments, prestigious awards if your team does great work.

Cons(overly) demanding clients and project managers, too little time spent designing a solution before building it, cliquey social groups, management has no problem working you to the bone or eating up your life without overtime pay

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Friendly, trendy, modern company to work for

    Project Manager (Current Employee)
    Calgary, AB (Canada)

    I have been working at Critical Mass full-time


    Pros: The office is best suited for beginners, experience is not required to work at CM, they prefer to hire cheap interns, or associates, and train… Cons: No one sticks around.
