Toxic work environment, horrible managers
Environmental Scientist (Former Employee), WAMarch 30, 2014
Pros: the occasional free lunch
Cons: just about everything else
This was an absolutely horrendous company to work for. They have the worst managers and management practices I've ever experienced, even worse than the fictional bad ones on TV. Imagine micro-managers but much more incompetent. The company won't give you any work to do and then will lay you off because you don't have any work to do. They've set up ethical – more... guidelines that no one follows, in fact, your coworkers tend to go out of their way to make life worse for you while you're there. Frequent backstabbing, distrust, and lying are all an integral part of the work culture. It's the kind of job and company that makes you wake up in the morning dreading the workday.

If you want to work for a company that respects its' employees, promotes and practices ethical behaviors both internally and externally, hires and trains capable and qualified managers, provides you with ample work to do, and makes you feel secure in your position...stay as far away from this company as possible!!! – less

Terrible Leadership
Project Engineer (Former Employee), Denver, CoMay 8, 2013
Pros: can't think of one? at least you have a job?
Cons: you work for cdm smith
This company goes out its way to instill core values that are not followed by the leaders of this company. Limited growth, unless you can play the politics game well. CDM is a toxic environment that is taxing on your personal life and career growth.

NO advancement, poor management
environmental (Former Employee), Oak RidgeFebruary 21, 2013
Pros: some nice people....
Cons: management does not communicate, micro manages, not enough workload for all employees in the office.
This office has some nice folks but there is very little advancement from within. They hire when there is not enough workload for the folks in the office to be fully billable. Management does not communicate with the workers what so ever. Many become pigeon holed and unable to work on various projects to be diverse. Also the management team micromanages...It – more... is like they never believe you are qualified no matter how much education or experience you have. This is primarily only this office location. Elsewhere within the company is different. – less

IT Purchasing Coordinator Position - if you like micro-managment
IT Purchasing Coordinator (Former Employee), Maitland, FLJanuary 9, 2013
Pros: free coffee - great benefits if you're there long enough to get them
Cons: micro-manager in the it dept and only about 2 hours worth of work a day - if that
I worked there for about 2 months. Honestly-there is not enough work to fill that position for 8 hours. Manager is EXTREMELY micro managing and controlling. The employees in general were super nice, and the location in Maitland is convienant. I believe the title of this position overstates what the day to day responsibilities are. It's more like data – more... entry. I have over 8yrs of purchasing experience and I can tell you it's not really a purchasing position. If I'm not mistaken, this job is posted every couple of months because they cannot keep personnel in this position whether it's the employee feeling inadequate, bored, and sick of being micromanaged therefore quitting, OR it's because the manager gets rid of them for various reasons. She has 2 employees there that have been there for awhile - this is a 3rd position to help relieve some of the work off of the other 2.

A typical day consisted of waiting for orders to come in for new cell phones/laptops/desktops or software. I ordered the laptops/desktops and 2 other ladies did the software and cell phones. That's only if there was anything needed. Otherwise you sat there trying to look busy so that you didn't get in trouble for not having any work. I dragged the ordering process out to make it last so I would have something to do. The orders are then sent to Dell and delivered to the branch/employee that ordered them. It's not rocket science or even difficult.
If you're not a suck up type - this isn't the position for you. If you enjoy a challenge, and staying busy, learning and growing - this is not the job for you. If you like your emails, phone calls, and movement monitored then this IS the job for you. Don't believe me? When you interview - ask how many times in the last year this position has been vacant. You may need to ask another employee there to get a straight and honest answer. I am only speaking for the IT Procurement Dept. I believe the rest of the company and other depts have it pretty good, as it is a good company to work for....I just do not believe this is a good position nor management to apply/work for. – less

A great place to learn
Medical Editor (Former Employee), New YorkNovember 7, 2012
Pros: encourage growth and training, employee involvement
Cons: pay is ridiculously low for the industry, rules constantly change, passive-aggressive management style in many departments.
CDM focuses on training and seems to care about employee culture. However it's recently become too corporate. Bad decisions regarding large blocks of employees have dampened morale. The pay is at the lower end, and career shape requires financial sacrifice for a title change. Very stifling for talented folks, and the Peter Principle has set in and affected – more... some departments. Junior folks will learn everything they need to know for a career in digital medical advertising, but don't stick around for too long if you don't get past supervisory position. They seem to encourage promotion from within, but not really clear what an employee must do to get there. – less
