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

    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.

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

    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.
