    I have been working at CDMiConnect full-time

    Pros

    Really, really, really great people. I've worked at quite a few agencies and never experienced anything like CDMi. It's a very special place.

    Cons

    Like all agencies that I have experienced and know of--you can work long hours. But it comes in waves. And at least the people are great to be around.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up

    Pros

    Great people, surrounded by innovative thinkers they love to promote from within, and they are big on self development

    Cons

    No work life balance! I know this is the norm for an agency. I just always felt like my team were the only ones who stayed late on a daily basis. It seemed like work was never ending! I may be biased since I worked on a difficult account.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Respectable salary, good benefits, some nice co-workers

    Cons

    Very top heavy organization- about 2/3 of the people there are either a Senior, Supervisor, VP or above- which kind of distills any feeling of accomplishment when getting a promotion
    Company seems to focus way to much on social activities rather than meaningful change or improvements. Money spent on all the parties they have could be better served by giving raises and bonuses or hire more staff.
    Some co-workers feel that the company revolves around their brands which leads to a lot of stress when working on other projects

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. If you really appreciate your employees then help them by staffing accordingly and training effectively. The social aspect of the company is well meaning but ultimately doesn't change the fact that people are working to 8 or 9 pm on a fairly consistent basis.

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

    Pros

    amazing foundation for building up young talent, good support services within agency to help steer career growth. lots of value on "work-life" balance within the agency (i.e. after work activities, out of office field trips, holiday parties/social events)

    Cons

    big pharma has challenges within itself from a creative standpoint. work moves quick and can hard to be flexible and develop own style. a lot of high pressure expectations to manage up.

    Advice to Management

    management is really great, they are approachable and they do a great job of listening and matching up talent to the right team and brand/account. if you talk, they listen. keep it up!

    Pros

    - Great culture- CDMi really cares about their employees and not only listens to feedback but implements it. There are quarterly meetings to ensure the employees have a clear understanding of the business objectives and upcoming events.
    - Development opportunities and training- CDMi focuses on career pathing and makes a sincere effort to provide clear guidance on how to advance within the company (new ideas are welcomed and no matter what your level all departments are encouraged to participate in internal initiatives). Additionally, CDMi has regular training to help employees learn and stay up to speed on industry related topics such as: compliance, health literacy, and digital technology.

    Cons

    - This downside could also be an upside depending on how you look at it. CDMi has a process for everything. This increases quality control and maintains structure but can decrease efficiency and drive up cost if you don't know how to optimize the process.
    - Company can be too rigid and inflexible at times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep finding new ways to inspire employees! In many ways CDMi has felt like a second home and family to me. It really is a great place to work.
