      Great company if you work with the right teams

      Pros

      I really liked the teams I worked with. If you work hard and work creatively, managers will invest their time in you and you can learn new skills. Some of the projects were interesting, and exact work schedules are flexible as long as you’re putting in a full week. Overall really positive experience, and a great place to work right out of undergrad, especially if you want exposure to lots of different kinds of projects and work. I find my colleagues are very supportive of each other, not just in work but outside of that too, and they’re largely very smart, kind people. The company is also doing well, and is expanding into all sorts of new exciting fields.

      Cons

      1. When you first start in a entry-level position , you spend a few (~2-5) months doing a lot of scut work, like budgets, editing documents, etc. Not that bad if you know it’ll get better, but it leads a lot of new staff to start looking for a new position almost as soon as they start. 2. Some project managers are just not that great to work with, but they’ve been around forever. This is more advice than a specific con about the company. If you work here, figure out who is good to work for. I got really lucky, but I worked briefly at the beginning with some pretty bad managers. 3. The upper level executive management creates a corporate culture that clashes some with the mission and drive of the project teams. There’s a heavy handed focus on billability, bonuses are entirely driven by how much “overtime” you work/how little PTO you take instead of based on performance, and people are generally underpaid. From talking to others who have left, this is the biggest bone most people have to pick with Cadmus.
