Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at CDM full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Opportunities to work on myriad brands and projects alongside young talent

Cons

Little to no support, particularly from the top down. HR is absent, certain departments favored over others (eg, creative and account). Lack of opportunity for career advancement despite senior leadership continuing to receive promotions and praise.

Advice to Management

Start appreciating and rewarding your masses before they all jump ship.

    Cons

    Not everyone can meet the standards that are set, and that is not a bad thing.

    I worked at CDM full-time

    Pros

    Lots of structure, very smart people at different levels, and high motivation to produce solid work. It is easy to learn and grow up to a point.

    Cons

    Mass delusion at senior management level, and too much time is spent inventing new titles/honors for themselves than recognizing employees for their valuable contributions. Very bad pay for the amount of hours you are expected to work and a general sense that employees should be thankful for working there. They ask a lot of you, especially loyalty and commitment, without offering any of it in return. Eventually, most people learn that the agency leadership doesn't care about anyone but themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Don't think so highly of yourselves and recognize the value of people who contribute.
