    Pros

    LEWIS is great- you're surrounded by incredibly smart people and big ideas. Work/life balance is good for an agency.

    Cons

    Process is a bit lacking, but that is normal when things are so fast paced.

    Advice to Management

    Give smart and capable employees more ownership over what they're working on, don't hold things too close to your chest-- this will result in more progress at more levels.

    Pros

    LEWIS by far has the nicest group of people than any other place I’ve worked at. Everyone is supportive and fun to be around. I feel like my line manager and office head really care about me and want me to succeed. I’m working on some interesting clients and the kinds of clients we are pitching and winning show me that the agency is going in the right direction. Work life balance is great and they have been very flexible...

    Cons

    While everyone is nice, it seems that we have a few people that don’t always pull their weight or work on the same level as the rest of the team. Sometimes that leads me to pick up their slack. Also I work in a smaller growing office so we don’t get things like weekly breakfasts that other offices get but I hope that changes when we get bigger.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the few who are not performing and call them out, help them improve or get rid of them. Other than that, continue to inspire people to do their best and keep up your focus on growing the business and bringing in more great people.

    Pros

    Vibrant and welcoming office space, just like the people. Fantastic team of people who are genuine and full of heart. They are supportive and understanding of work life balance. Provide opportunity to grow and learn more through sharing personal knowledge and "lunch & learn" events. More importantly, you can feel empowered to take a task and run with it with guidance of your manager. You can always hear some corner...

    Pros

    LEWIS is a great place to work these days. The agency has gone through some changes over the past year, and while change is never easy, it's all for the better. Poor performers and bad attitudes have been replaced by top notch talent. The US leadership team has had a complete overhaul over the past year and we now have dedicated, smart leaders who truly care about the people and the agency and actually know what they...

    Cons

    Getting new hires in can take a long time, but I understand that's because we want to find the right people. I would also like to see more communication on where we are heading.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring awesome people, get more seasoned recruiters, communicate more about where we are as a business and keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    Wow, what a year it has been in 2016. I have been with the agency for a little over a year and there has been so much change in San Francisco. Good change, well great change I should say. When I first started in 2015, I noticed a real disconnect in the way certain managers lead teams. It was inconsistent and there were VPs that never took initiative or volunteered to support me and my team. Because of this, I ended...

    Cons

    Agency life is agency life. Work life balance is at a minimum. Some clients are rude and obnoxious It goes with the territory.

    Advice to Management

    There has been a lot of change this last year. As we move in to 2017 I would suggest to keep up the momentum, support the team and continue to go with the vision that was set forth.
