    I have been working at CDM full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    Great values. They talk about them and post them everywhere. You can't miss them.

    Cons

    Follow their values until the numbers don't look good. Not so graceful then

    Advice to Management

    Grow up

    I have been working at CDM full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People seem really happy here. There are minor complaints here and there but I would say the culture here is positive and people are generally very approachable. Seems like a very chill place so far

    Cons

    Work that needs to be done ebb and flow - sometimes you're really busy other times very very open. Work varies by client as well

    Advice to Management

    None so far

    Pros

    Terrific mobility, terrific people and always something (good) happening. New President is a true leader and setting a great vibe around the agency.

    Cons

    Nothing I can think of

    Pros

    Good people overall. Convenient location. They have many Pfizer account which are located across the street. Generally a relatively social atmosphere

    Cons

    You will be largely ignored unless you work on high profile brands. Maintenance brands have staffing issues and promotions are much more difficult. Internal financial management software and practices are tedious and cumbersome and updates are required monthly. PM department is very weak and account ends up responsible for most of their job description.

    Advice to Management

    Fix PM department, update finance software and focus on folks who keep the ship afloat and not just the giant accounts.

    Pros

    People treat one another with a level of respect and kindness that is sadly, all too rare in our business. They call it GRACE and it's deemed quite important when hiring or assessing employees. It seems to be second nature for everyone and is quite infectious and makes even the tightest deadlines easier.

    Cons

    I wish I joined here years ago and can understand why people seem to stay forever. Cannot find any other cons to write about.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Please.

    Pros

    Nice colleagues, team work spirit every where you look, very talented people, easy access by train

    Cons

    The agency has changed after Omnicom took over. Very understaffed, long hours of work, the gesture of courtesy of the company covering dinner when you work around 13 hours a day are gone, replacement of local employees by outsourcing jobs overseas it's taking a toll on quality and working conditions.
