    I have been working at Agility PR Solutions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Flexible work hours for office-time appointments, working from home etc. (this largely depends on your manager, but I think most are pretty good about this) - Very rare to work overtime/evenings etc. (again, this depends on your department, but in marketing it's almost never). Very good work-life balance. - Nice brightly lit office with lots of windows for natural light, and fairly open concept. - Location in very nice neighbourhood (Westboro) right next to transit way/LRT and overtop of a grocery store, gym, coffee shop, and daycare centre. -Monthly Lunch'n'Learns and lots of staff events and initiatives (potlucks, Christmas party, Summer BBQ, contests, raffles etc.) - Friendly leadership team

    Cons

    - Very few. I would say any that exist are common across all tech companies - As is common with most tech companies, there is a somewhat high turnover, particularly in sales. - As with most tech companies, there can be a lot of change, with staff, products, budgets etc. (although this isn't always a bad thing).

    Advice to Management

    - Internal communications between departments is really important to ensure negative tension/frustration doesn't build between them

    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.
