I worked at The CDM Group full-time (More than a 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 Management

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

    I have been working at The CDM Group as a contractor

    Pros

    There is a very social, fun atmosphere which I liked but don't get me wrong, everyone works their tails off. At least in my experience. If you are energetic and outgoing this is a great fit. Good perks like inter-office parties and fitness discounts.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, I was only freelance hoping to go full time but due to budget issues they had to let me go. Could be a bit disorganized and frantic at times.
