    I have been working at Agility PR Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Very transparent and open communication between all employees/managers/CEO. Fun and relaxed office with many great amenities and support in colleagues and higher management. A great platform and team that is only getting better.

    Cons

    None that I can really think of. Sometimes things change quickly and frequently but all in the name of progress.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and never lose the vision or human element of the company

    I have been working at Agility PR Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Very thorough interview and on-boarding process. Agility does a fantastic job welcoming new employees and ensuring the environment is inclusive. The social committee does a great job organizing team building functions as well. The people are truly supportive here and genuinely want others to succeed, which isn't always the case in some sales teams.

    Cons

    Salary and benefits could improve. Specifically, subsidizing or paying for parking would be a welcome perk. Lastly, a little disappointed there isn't an RSP match program.

    Pros

    The people (outside of exec level) are very helpful and kind

    Cons

    Exec level does not pass info down to other departments when needed. Poor communication between departments. Favouritism among employees

    Advice to Management

    Focus on improving software based on what prospects are saying, keep everyone informed of changes/updates prior to them occurring.

    Pros

    Dynamic company with great people on board. Reasonable benefits. Great work/life balance. The company is growing and does that the right way, meaning getting the required resources in number and in quality as well. Management is not afraid to challenge the old habits and accept that a company of 200 can not operate the same way as a company of 20.

    Cons

    Can't think of anything so far.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it open for changes.

    Pros

    As a recent addition to the Agility team here are some of the first thing I noticed since starting:
    - Inviting work environment
    - Great coworkers who are always there to encourage and help
    - Always open to training opportunities
    - The opportunity to learn daily on the job

    Cons

    The only real con I've noticed thus far is:
    Parking being 150/month

    I have been working at Agility PR Solutions full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Agility isn't just a place to work-- it really feels like a family. So many employees at Agility have put their hearts into their work everyday, going above and beyond to ensure the success of the company as we've grown. Our clients are always at the center of everything we do, but it's also a belief at Agility that in order to maintain happy clients, you need happy employees to help support them. The overall culture of the organization has been key to our success and can be felt through all levels of the organization.

    Everyone is extremely hard working. This isn't a place to come in and expect that all structure will be in place and that roles will entail specific tasks only. This is a company where opportunities are created for those who excel, work hard and step up.

    Work hard, play hard is a real thing here. There's always a lot of laughs around the office too.

    Cons

    Fast growing company, especially with recent acquisitions-- so sometimes there are growing pains associated with that.
    In the past there was a lot of overtime and extra work that had to be put in, in order to help us grow, which often caused employee dissatisfaction. This has been drastically improved in recent years.

    Advice to Management

    The executive team at Agility always strive to be open and forthcoming, which is well received by employees. Continue to empower staff at all levels to help us grow towards a truly global team.
