Pros

Best culture of any agency I've been with. They do care to a certain degree about their employees welfare, certainly more than other agencies that consider their people as resources.

Cons

Some of the support and back office systems are pretty weak in comparison to other companies of the same size.
HR and company orientation / onboarding for new hires could be improved.
Consistency in delivery across the company varies by office and region.
The company is still largely run out of Calgary, AB, not exactly the mecca for marketing professionals.
Administration and processes sometimes get in the way of doing good work. Processes sometimes feel very inefficient.

Advice to Management

Put more focus on the larger markets in the US.

    Pros

    Despite the boring work there are some really talented and creative people.

    Cons

    Lack of creative work with a high turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    It's a little hypocritical to start an initiative for women at CM while maintaining some pretty bad maternity leave policies that offers little to no support for professional growth.

  2. Great place to start your career - then leave.
