    I have been working at CDM full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You will work and learn from the best here. The smartest, sharpest people in the business. It is the high level of the talent that makes life different here.

    Cons

    It's not for everybody. This is no place to hang out. You will be pushed and will be asked to grow and work hard. It is fun and satisfying, but challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing and reaching to be better.

    Burnout Work model: get them young & cheap, work them very hard
    Utilization pressure over creative considerations
    Forced social-fun atmosphere - Kool Aid mentality
    Wants desperately to be digital - not there yet

    Advice to Management

    Good luck with the new cutthroat model.
