    Pros

    The people that work at Livewire are the most talented and passionate I've ever worked with. The spirit and energy is alive in everything we do. People care so much for each other and our clients. We have a lot of fun in our office.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be tough sometimes but that comes with working in an agency.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your finger on the pulse of the culture. It's important to people.

    Intelligent, passionate, and fun people doing what they love. Feels like family. Great clients and challenging work.

    Uptown location requires riding the bus along Eglinton (although they do have free parking for those with a car)

    Pros

    Amazing culture, great leadership, smart people, interesting projects and clients, puppy-power Fridays, flexible work-hours, fun!

    Cons

    Located in Leaside, so if you're a TTC rider, it's a bit of a trek.

    Pros

    Casual office environment.
    Fantastic team - Livewire seems very choosy with their hiring process.
    Good work-life balance. Many people have families (leaders included), the hours are somewhat flexible, etc.

    Cons

    Management could be a little more firm with clients. Clients can sometimes make crazy requests and there isn't enough pushback.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    "High staff morale"

    Pros

    High staff morale, many staff events, management kept employees very engaged. It's a growing company so there is lots of opportunity for growth within the organization and there's free parking!

    Cons

    The industry is very deadline driven, so the hours can be crazy once in awhile. No other cons to speak of.

    I have been working at Livewire Communications full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    We work with a smart, fun, caring, thoughtful team of people who give their all to the Livewire culture and our clients. This is a no-ego workplace, we take risks, we challenge, we collaborate and we celebrate. As we grow, we are seeing more internal career growth potential and changes to new or existing roles.

    Our leadership team is hands on and involved in the day to day, yet remain dedicated to the vision and driving the strategy of the company for future growth. We all work hard, sometimes long hours with tight timelines and high client expectations, yet we also benefit from the 'agency' environment: summer hours, dogs, gym membership, booze cart, payday breakfasts and a yearly all team strategic offsite at a surprise location (just to name a few).

    This is a place where you can truly be yourself. The Livewire team has a very diverse set of skills, backgrounds and experience yet we are one team. We are encouraged to enjoy our life outside of work - have a healthy mind and body and spend time with family and friends.

    Cons

    Growth is hard sometimes, but what a great problem to have!

    As the business grows we are constantly challenged to ensure we have the right resources in place to be proactive and deliver amazing quality outcomes, faster and cheaper for our clients. This can be hard to do, yet as the world evolves, so must we!
