Part 1: Tour of Critical Mass Calgary

  • Sep 14, 2010 · 4:00 PM
  • Critical Mass Calgary

** A Meetup at the Hop In Brew will immediately follow this tour. You may come to either or both events, but please RSVP separately.

We're kicking off September with a tour of Critical Mass, one of the largest web design firms in the city. They employ a lot of local talent and their client list includes:

- Mercedes-Benz
- Nike
- Budweiser
- Rolex
- Pampers!

Learn what it's like to work in the big leagues. Afterward, we'll head to the Hop In Brew for our regular, presentation-free meetup.

These are set up as separate events to help us gauge the tour size, but here is a unified target itinerary:

4:00 PM -- Meet at Critical Mass for the tour
5:00 PM -- Tour wrap-up
5:15 PM -- Walk 5 blocks to the Hop In Brew
5:30 PM -- Meet upstairs at the Hop In Brew and order a pint or three

Details will follow as the event grows closer.

    I wish we could see more of the actual workspaces, but overall I enjoyed the tour. I loved the Q&A at the end. I wish the hair salon was open.

    Tour was great. Very inspiring. Impressed (or maybe just surprised) with just how large the company is (600+ employees worldwide). Very collaborative, open environment. Tour included talking with two smart CM employees, a senior developer and a senior designer. Also, Tony has a lot of hair.

    I very much enjoyed the tour of CM.

    Our two guides, Kristine and Julie, were very thorough and had the answers to all the questions asked. If they were unable to answer a question, the answers were provided by knowledgeable employees (developers, designers, etc.).

    Great tour, really got a feel for CM and what it would be like to work there. The 'tour' guides were very informative, answering all questions

    An update on where to meet: You'll have to sign in at the front desk. From there you'll be directed to a meeting room where we'll hang out until the tour starts.

    Sorry, I don't drive so I'm not sure on that one.

    Hey Steve, We're still working out the details on that one. If CM doesn't have a staging area, I'll find a nearby coffee shop or pub to meet at first. Stay tuned.
