Disapproves of CEO

I worked at CDM full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

If you need experience and can't get anything else, the money isn't terrible.

Cons

Each person has to turn around so much work that they don't bother to get to know those around the, even one desk away. The department I was in had a 200% turnover rate in less than 2 years. If you are there 6 months, you have seniority. Because of this, no one knows how to do anything. Everyone throws each other under the bus and aggressive behavior is tolerated.

Advice to Management

Your best knowledge and people have already left the company because the workload and atmosphere are poor.

    Popularity contests, in-fighting, backstabbing all become more prevalent with higher titles. Distracts from the creative process.
