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

    Pros

    Lovely people
    great office
    lots of smart folks

    Cons

    - they work you to death
    - the creative leadership is lacking
    - Head office has a chip on its shoulder
    - lack of new business opportunities
    - lack of career opportunities
    - lack of ideas all tactics focused
    - the place is run like a small company
    - they speak of "it being like a family" which is true for about 20 people in Calgary, the rest of the organization, everyone is expendable

    Advice to Management

    Get more senior leadership from outside of your gene pool. Most of you have been there forever and you fall back on the same approach time after time.
