Current Employee - Senior Account Executive in New York, NY

I have been working at The CDM Group as a contractor (less than a year)

Pros

-Teams work together to really address client needs, rather than the politics that usually plague agencies. The processes they employ also keep all work moving making it clear where there are weak links for even better results moving forward.

Cons

-Freelance direction on contract start dates and end dates are a bit hazy
- Not a lot of room for negotiation for freelance wages

Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Very strong job processes in place, and good understanding of execution

    Cons

    Radical restructuring over the last year - no more loyalty to employees
    Burnout Work model: get them young & cheap, work them very hard
    Utilization pressure over creative considerations
    Forced social-fun atmosphere - Kool Aid mentality
    Wants desperately to be digital - not there yet

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good luck with the new cutthroat model.
