    I worked at Critical Mass

    Pros

    The people are great and fun.

    Cons

    Bad project planning and management and employees expected to work their butts off to make up for it. No emphasis on career growth. Favouritism and cliques.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate people on more than just hours worked. Plan for the future instead of repeating the same mistakes over and over again.

    Pros

    Critical Mass has an impressive client list and portfolio.

    Cons

    This 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 ManagementAdvice

    I 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.
