    I worked at C Space full-time

    Pros

    Fun, young company with lots of growth opportunities. Great place to start your career.

    Cons

    The work is really interesting but impact can be difficult to come by. It's hard to say what clients actually do with the insights and recommendations C Space provides.

    I worked at C Space full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people care about what they do, there is a diversity of roles, and we always keep learning in numerous industries.

    Cons

    It can be political at higher levels, with fewer job opportunities as many people stay for their entire careers.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to find ways to raise up junior people as they grow, and find the right way to staff teams so the work is done without overtaxing employees.

  3. "Great company and culture, but need to pay people more if you want them to stay"

    Pros

    Interesting work, nice and smart people

    Cons

    The pay is way too low for lower level employees, leading to high turnover rates.


  4. "Zero Work-Life Balance. Gender bias is rampant."

    I worked at C Space full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Young, energetic, with generally a positive outlook and a can-do attitude.
    Nice location in the heart of the city.
    Beautiful office space.

    Cons

    As much as the company preaches that work-life balance is very important, the expectations are drastically different.

    Also, as a male, I experienced my share of female colleagues and superiors who treated me with disdain for being a man.

    In some cases, it wasn’t always clear what impact, if any, the work that you performed for your clients was having in their business.

    Advice to Management

    Either create a culture of long days at work or allow your employees to push back when it comes time to disconnect from work. Can’t have it both ways.

    I worked at C Space (More than a year)

    Pros

    C Space has an excellent culture, and young professionals are mentored through the process and given extensive training.

    Cons

    Young talent is hired with low salaries and promises of quick promotions, which don't come to fruition.

    I have been working at C Space full-time

    Pros

    Human, hard working, smart people. Really interesting work for great clients. C Space is a great place to get tons of experience, opportunities to grow, and learn a lot about multiple industries. Everyone really cares about doing great work and cares about each other. The company is growing in the right direction, looking to become more holistic and innovative problem solvers for our fantastic roster of clients.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic red tape can hinder our ability to be our best. Management is slow to solve internal problems, likely due more to Omnicom's behemoth nature than shortcomings in C Space leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Stand up and fight for investments that will allow us to grow in the way you know we need to. Tell it like it is! Realize that no one can do 150% for very long. Don't let your best talent continue to be overworked and under appreciated, or you will lose them all to companies who will give them the resources and the TIME they need to do their best work.

    Pros

    Creative, collaborative, smart, engaging, growth.

    Cons

    Payment is a bit on the low side for the type of consulting we do.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up what you are doing! C Space is an amazing place to work with a hard working, creative, collaborative culture, full of talented people who are passionate about what they do. The upper level management is very transparent, which is appreciated, and the senior leaders are genuinely interested in, and supportive of, the professional growth of individuals. There are growth opportunities and you are given the space to learn, push yourself, and grow. Furthermore, upper level management is always interested in hearing your thoughts on work, their performance, and more. I love coming to work everyday, so thank you for creating such an amazing environment to work in and accomplish influential things that truly make a difference at our clients' businesses.
