I felt a bit out of place being a 40-something sysadmin in an office full of 20-something creative types. Still, was a fun place to work, and I looked forward to going to work there every day.

The general office has a really great culture, but it breaks down on an individual level. All of the employees that advance do so because of their friendship with management. The HR department is unreliable at best, as they also give preference to their friends. The pay is incredibly low and you will need to fight tooth and nail for any advancement there as well. The clients are big and high profile though so they look great in your profile to move to a better company.
Pros
Free lunches, beer at work, free breakfasts, open office
Cons
Office politics, pay

Critical Mass is an example of a large company with a large team of very friendly people. Well organized and very professional.
New hires are properly directed right from day one.

I learned so much at CM in time I was there. Co-workers are some of the best in the business. Lots of pressure to work long hours.

fast-paced, however, not much room for advancement/mobility. For someone mid career or looking for advancement, may be better to consider somewhere else.

True independence, very casual atmosphere, but Big Brother is always watching. Very trendy, own pub, poker table, table tennis, projector TV in a Theatre seating meeting room. Everyone has a Mac laptop, underground parking, even for your bicycles and showers (kinda strange they are off the parkade). Only $ 175 a month to park and it's heated.

Friendly staff, and the Directors are all super nice.


Lots of great clients and CM gives some opportunities to work in other offices around the world.


All the perks, are to make up for the lower wages, but in the end you loose out.


Great social club.


Benefits are basic, sound great in the interview until you realize after 90 days all the small print.
Pros
the experience here you can take to another company and earn more and get hired.
Cons
long hours, low wages
