    I have been working at Livewire Communications full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Livewire is a growing leader in a new part of the communications field. That has given me the opportunity to develop an emerging practice area into a department with the most amazing team I could ask for, working on projects with increasing scope, sophistication, and profile for global organizations. Every couple of years my role has grown and changed, presenting new focus and challenges, letting me create new capabilities for the company. As we expand this year into the US, it's all going to become even more interesting.

    Our culture is a priority for everyone, starting with the Partners, and it shows. We attract smart, talented people, and that lets us deliver exceptional work for our clients. It's never boring; we work hard and have fun doing it.

    Cons

    It's not really a con, but the balance can be a bit wonky at times; that's the industry. If you want to clock a consistent 9-5, then a communications agency isn't the right fit for you.

    I have been working at Livewire Communications full-time

    Pros

    The people and the culture are second to none. Also management is very accessible which is almost unheard of for most companies.

    Cons

    As with any company who is growing, there are going to be growing pains. The potential to influence new and emerging policy/process/growth is exciting however.

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

    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!
