Current Employee - Senior Project Manager in Chicago, IL

I have been working at Critical Mass full-time for more than a year

Pros

- Management promotes from within
- Fair salary and benefits
- Casual environment
- Execs have an open-door policy and know you by name
- Strong office and company culture
- Good work/life balance for an agency

Cons

- Clique-ish, gossipy -- we're all back in high school again. While the culture is strong, it's not for everyone if you want some level of maturity in your work day
- Most accounts are not very interesting and offer little professional growth
- Lots of turnover

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look at ways to bring in more interesting clients with diverse work--this will allow employees to build on their skills and possibly keep them longer. No one wants to work on insurance accounts for the long haul.
