I have been working at Critical Mass

Pros

Safe. I can take a higher level position, and years later go to a lower level position, and not be penalized.

Cons

The general public seems to hate us.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Needs better PR. Hire someone to repair image.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    too focused on the bottom line, a ot of great people left, and continue to leave, innovation only goes so far before you have to fulfill retainer work.

    I worked at Critical Mass

    Pros

    Great client roster, great people, fun environment. Lots of free beer, a games room. free breakfast and a hair salon.

    Cons

    Bad compensation, unpaid overtime, no opportunities for career advancement. It really is a sweat shop; they drop you in and work you as hard as they can until you finally get fed up and quit. Then they just hire a replacement. This seems to be just a part of their business model. I used to sit through their monthly "town hall" meetings listening to the BS about how much managment said they value their employees while in reality they treat them like crap.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want your good people to stop leaving offer compeditive compensation. Although I don't think you care because of your client list you will always have talented people banging at your door.
