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

    Pros

    Awesome people to work with, and management does their best to take care of everyone. Critical Mass has an impressive list of clients, but most of the work coming out of thie chicago office is financial services / insurance related. There's a few wild cards, but for the most part, the "sexier" clients are based elsewhere.

    Cons

    At times feels like an amateur shop playing with the big boys.

    Advice to Management

    be mindful of what other digital shops are paying, and be competitive--it's the only way to get and keep talent.

    "A good place to start out. Don't expect long term career growth unless you are in with the right people."

    I worked at Critical Mass full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are some smart, fun people. Like other agencies, the culture is a lax jeans and t-shirts kind of place with beer in the fridge. Random fun office events like Bacon Fest will happen. These things make the cons tolerable for the short term.

    Cons

    Weak client roster. A willingness to bend over backwards on projects with little to no reward. Poor communication with employees regarding vision and expectations as a company. If you cannot fend for yourself and stand up for what you want, you may as well be invisible.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency to some degree would be nice. Provide clear career paths and opportunities. The fun stuff is nice, but in the end people want to feel rewarded and respected.
