    I worked at Critical Mass full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Incredibly fun culture and the people are great. There are benefits to working hard with these guys.
    - Potential to work on some really cool projects for brands people recognize.

    Cons

    - Pay is great for people out of college and hungry. Those who've been around for a while can get paid better elsewhere.
    - Losing swagger, partly due to client roster fading over the years and burned out employees.
    - Home office doesn't know how to operate outside their geographical space, making expansion and sharing of great opportunities messy and poorly strategized.
