I worked at The CDM Group full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great benefits, lots of parties with good food and beer. Definitely some very creative and smart people employed here.

Cons

Lots of rules, structure and very high expectations of its employees. Pretty competitive environment with some bureaucracy and caddy behavior along the way. Late nights are to be expected from any term spent at an agency. So be prepared to spend 50 hours+ here; or more if you are on a product launch team.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Constant feedback is a great tool to use to help people to grow, but remember to tell your employees what they are doing well, too. Perhaps embrace individuality a bit more so people feel part of a team instead of a soldier on a battleground.
