    I worked at CDM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    good benefits, depending on what team you are on there are some good people

    Cons

    long hours, a lot of favoritism, feels more like a factory than a creative environment, insane turnover rate

    Advice to Management

    CDM is losing A LOT of good people. Management needs to acknowledge this and figure out a way to keep people. Your workers are not just disposable puppets.

    Pros

    Caring, creative and it's well run. People also truly care about you and your development. It's not the same in other agencies I've worked.

    Cons

    I wouldn't change much about CDM. I think it has helped me grown while I've been here and I've seen so many others do the same

    Advice to Management

    I think the new president is really making a difference.

    I worked at CDM full-time

    Pros

    Good creatives. Very buttoned up. Highly rigid environment

    Cons

    Culture is cut throat. You either thrive or don't

    Advice to Management

    People are not a commodity. They are the life blood of the organization. without them there are just empty desks.

    I worked at CDM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the nicest people. There are cliques, and it's kind of an old boys club up top, but some of the nicest people I've worked with.

    Cons

    Creative leadership is super nice, but doesn't pick the best creative. Constantly recycling ideas, many times ideas that didn't win pitches. If you want to work in a creative setting, get ready to fight tooth and nail for your ideas. That, or be happy with the most see-say work you'll ever see.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to younger employees who have their fingers on the pulse of the industry. Don't recycle ideas. If it wasn't good enough three years ago, it won't be good enough now.

    Pros

    This company sets the bar for caring about both business and employees. They care about the people that work for them, the clients they engage, the community they are in, and the fun to be had. Work life balance is fully achieved here with flexible work hours, great benefits, and office incentives. And they love feedback!

    Cons

    At this time, I have not experienced any.
