Pros

Smart people in a great environment where learning is encouraged. Leadership is concerned with providing high quality work AND is interested in staff personally. You feel that people really care about helping you build your career here.

Cons

Not located in NYC. Great energy, but located outside major metro area. If you don't need to be right in the city, it's hard to beat CDM Princeton.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the great work!

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

    Pros

    - The people are all sweet, easy to get along with and in all, the people you work with are the best part of the job
    - Everyone here is very smart and works incredibly hard
    - Summer Fridays, great health insurance, bagel breakfast once a month, being able to purchase the company computers at a discounted price and training courses

    Cons

    - Very buttoned up, and insanely strict on their process (mainly because this is HCP work and they have to be)
    - Strong culture, very much a "Drink the Kool-Aid" type of culture.
    - The workload is often crazy and time demanding (don't expect to get out of there before 8pm every night)
    - Creative is stale and un-original. Account often drives the creative. Not truly a "creative" shop.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be willing to take more risks, creatively, and start matching industry pay standards, especially since this is HCP work.

    Pros

    Lots of structure, very smart people at different levels, and high motivation to produce solid work. It is easy to learn and grow up to a point.

    Cons

    Mass delusion at senior management level, and too much time is spent inventing new titles/honors for themselves than recognizing employees for their valuable contributions. Very bad pay for the amount of hours you are expected to work and a general sense that employees should be thankful for working there. They ask a lot of you, especially loyalty and commitment, without offering any of it in return. Eventually, most people learn that the agency leadership doesn't care about anyone but themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't think so highly of yourselves and recognize the value of people who contribute.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
