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.

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

    Pros

    - The people are all sweet, easy to get along with and in all, the people you work with are the best part of the job
    - Everyone here is very smart and works incredibly hard
    - Summer Fridays, great health insurance, bagel breakfast once a month, being able to purchase the company computers at a discounted price and training courses

    Cons

    - Very buttoned up, and insanely strict on their process (mainly because this is HCP work and they have to be)
    - Strong culture, very much a "Drink the Kool-Aid" type of culture.
    - The workload is often crazy and time demanding (don't expect to get out of there before 8pm every night)
    - Creative is stale and un-original. Account often drives the creative. Not truly a "creative" shop.

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to take more risks, creatively, and start matching industry pay standards, especially since this is HCP work.

    I have been working at CDM full-time

    Pros

    Smart people in a great environment where learning is encouraged. Leadership is concerned with providing high quality work AND is interested in staff personally. You feel that people really care about helping you build your career here.

    Cons

    Not located in NYC. Great energy, but located outside major metro area. If you don't need to be right in the city, it's hard to beat CDM Princeton.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!
