    Pros

    This agency cares.
    The agency cares about the clients and the people who work there. After working with a few agencies around town, I understand the value system comes from the clients they work for. The agency specializes in agriculture, some of the best people in our country. Farmers are hardworking and honest. The people at this agency know that and respect it. Just like in farming, if you slack off or don’t deliver there are consequences.
    Management is involved in the business. The clients know they care and they invest in the people working on the business. As others have stated, there are changes but usually they dealing with low performance issues.
    The brands the agency works for are top-notch and sometimes tough.
    Benefits are great and work life balance is easily managed.

    Cons

    New business seems limited by the focus on the ag industry. In other agencies I’ve worked out, new business is frequent and communicated often. It is also unclear who leads new business. No one seems to know who the agency is targeting.

    There are many tough, demanding clients. The employees work hard to meet client demands but the perks make up for this.

    The largest watch out is advice to the owners to watch their backs. There are a couple of folks in your management team who lack character and are out to get all they can.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to management: Maintain your roots, grow the agency and take care of those who taking care of your clients.
