I have been working at The CDM Group full-time (Less than a year)
CDM has great managers, great creative teams, and great process. They fully support their employees, so no one is overwhelmed or overworked even in the busiest of times.
It is a very large company, and often feels very corporate. Not as "creative" as other agencies, CDM is really driven by Account and client wants.
Advice to Management
Maintain transparency, hire more full time employees and less free-lancers, work harder to appropriately staff creative teams during busy times
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at The CDM Group (New York, NY) in September 2015.
I talked to the senoir specialist as well as one of the designers on the team. The process felt very relaxed and informal, even though all we talked about was subject matter. They were not afraid to give feedback to my work and were overall very welcoming and curious to learn about me while being willing to inform me as much about them as well.
