    Pros

    Definitely the place to go if your looking for this balance. Great culture - fun team of people to work with. Alot of recognition is given out when due.

    Cons

    Favouritism is profound. Too focused on the need for a work life balance. People not pulling their weight equally. Not many people know the brand - even within industry, people are still starting to get to know us.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is too much red tape and bureaucracy within the agency internally. This needs to change. Your having a lot of good people leave because of this.
