I have been working at Critical Mass full-time (More than a year)

Pros

- Management promotes from within
- Fair salary and benefits
- Casual environment
- Execs have an open-door policy and know you by name
- Strong office and company culture
- Good work/life balance for an agency

Cons

- Clique-ish, gossipy -- we're all back in high school again. While the culture is strong, it's not for everyone if you want some level of maturity in your work day
- Most accounts are not very interesting and offer little professional growth
- Lots of turnover

Advice to Management

Look at ways to bring in more interesting clients with diverse work--this will allow employees to build on their skills and possibly keep them longer. No one wants to work on insurance accounts for the long haul.

    "High school Drama!"

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    CM will push the "fun" to mask the problems it's having. So if you like beer, come here.

    Cons

    They take advantage of hard working employees and do not compensate...well, until they let a few more people go, then you may get a raise. Not a secure place to work! They seem nice at first, but watch out, it's a ploy to get you in the door!

    Advice to Management

    CM needs to pull away from the click it has in upper management. No matter what good you do, if they don't like you, or if their friends don't like you. you will be let go/fired. You have been warned!
