A Bad Experience Overall

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

ProsCritical Mass has an impressive client list and portfolio.

ConsThis company likes to exploit younger professionals who are less likely to complain about a work life balance. Long hours and rushed deadlines are the norm. While they provide adequate pay and insurance benefits, salary bonuses and recognition for a job well done are practically non-existent unless you are in the right clique. In addition, the company and its people aren't managed well which has resulted in a downward trend in quality work and employee morale.

Advice to Senior ManagementI would encourage them to take a management course to understand how to manage people, because that's not a quality any of them seem to possess.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
