    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.

    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.

    Good creatives. Very buttoned up. Highly rigid environment

    Cons

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

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

    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 people, good clients, great holding company (BBDO).

    Cons

    Open office concept is loud and somewhat difficult to work in, even with noise-cancelling headphones.

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    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
