A balanced scale of pros/cons

Coordinator (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

I have been working at Critical Mass

Prosa lot of big interesting clients; relatively flat org structure; really smart and fun people; company is the perfect size; still growing despite hard economic times that have hit our clients hard; fun culture

Conscentralization--doesn't work with all the offices they have and it takes forever for things to get rolling; employee retention--no career pathing, poor middle manager skills; pay--generally lower than competitors; nepotism; lackluster support for internal needs/initiatives; not as creative as they like to think they are; uphill battle for exposure; exec doesn't present a unified front nor communicate well-enough (or regularly enough) down through the ranks

Advice to Senior Managementwhen you see a problem, address it. when you make a decision to do something... actually commit.

You have people called "Career Developers" and they don't really do anything. You need to be… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
