I worked at Critical Mass full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Awesome people to work with, and management does their best to take care of everyone. Critical Mass has an impressive list of clients, but most of the work coming out of thie chicago office is financial services / insurance related. There's a few wild cards, but for the most part, the "sexier" clients are based elsewhere.

Cons

At times feels like an amateur shop playing with the big boys.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

be mindful of what other digital shops are paying, and be competitive--it's the only way to get and keep talent.

    I have been working at Critical Mass full-time

    Pros

    The office has expanded, it now takes up the entire floor. Lots of new equipment and newly designed conference rooms, large kitchen, many team working areas, etc. Promotes collaboration and group work sessions well.

    Still could use some new clients that bring out the creativity and talent in the office, but steps seem to be taking place - look for some really interesting work (not typically found at an agency of this size) coming soon.

    New VP/group creative director hired, looking forward to see what he does.

    Still culturally a great place to work - tons of events, outings, beer 30's, as well as people going above and beyond for each other - makes you realize it's more then a place of work.

    Cons

    Could use some improvements in the project management side and social media leadership side.
