        I have been working at Swanson Russell Associates full-time for more than 5 years

        Pros

        The agency has a culture of hard work, creativity and strategic thought. It starts from the top down and they work to create a "Real Connection" with the client and the client's audiences. Employees often get the opportunity to spend time with clients and with the people they serve instead of just taking orders from someone in account service. There is also a great family atmosphere where you and your family are cared...

        Cons

        Not much I can think of here. I guess being located in Omaha and Lincoln Nebraska, there is little diversity in the workforce, but that isn't due to any ill will by management.

        Advice to Management

        Keep doing what you are doing and continue to explore all opportunities like I know you have.
