Pros

Best culture of any agency I've been with. They do care to a certain degree about their employees welfare, certainly more than other agencies that consider their people as resources.

Cons

Some of the support and back office systems are pretty weak in comparison to other companies of the same size.
HR and company orientation / onboarding for new hires could be improved.
Consistency in delivery across the company varies by office and region.
The company is still largely run out of Calgary, AB, not exactly the mecca for marketing professionals.
Administration and processes sometimes get in the way of doing good work. Processes sometimes feel very inefficient.

Advice to Management

Put more focus on the larger markets in the US.

    I worked at Critical Mass full-time

    Pros

    The cult like atmosphere is great and even better in warm months. Beer, stale popcorn and chips touched by the entire office on Fridays.

    Cons

    Most leaders have no formal education or aptitude for management. All will try to move mountains at great human cost for clients who are already packing their bags to go elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    You already know what to do. Only thing is if it's done immediately or too late. If too late, selling PSDs and presentations is a low profit business. But you know this. Right?

    I have been working at Critical Mass full-time

    Pros

    Fun place to work, lots of social activities. Lots of room for career growth and management is very receptive to new ideas to improve the company.

    Cons

    The career development program is good in theory but not all Career Developers are as engaged in the program.
    The highly distributed team structure can sometimes contribute to gaps in communication - but that's probably true of any company at some points.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure all employees receive equal attention for career development.
