    I have been working at Swoon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My experience with my personal Swoon contact/representative has been a very positive one with open, encouraging, and responsive communication. Swoon offers a very competitive compensation package with affordable health benefits options.

    Cons

    No cons so far. Because most agency business involves working remotely, you don't have the usual in-person meetings - which is just the way it is with most consulting agencies. However, it would be nice to have an opportunity to personally meet with Swoon contacts.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with the personal contact, frequent communications, and friendly support.
