    Pros

    This is an awesome agency that has been gone through a tough transition after being acquired by Crossmark. The good news is that the worst seem to be behind us and we already see improved communication, higher level strategic thinking and opportunity for growth. There are bumps in the road as with any agency but this is a close knit group that cares about one another, works hard and plays harder.

    Cons

    its a tough business and sometimes work life balance is hard to achieve.
