    I have been working at AMP Agency full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Fantastic teams and people - Management and senior leadership that looks at us as people with families and lives outside of our work - Flexible time off and reasonable managers - Interesting clients - Drama and gossip free (still happens but when it does, people are adults and work it out) - Access to world-class tools and professional development resources - Best work-life balance I've had at an agency (still some nights and weekends but that's only "as-needed" and not the norm)

    Cons

    - Promotions can unpredictable or slow - Despite AMP Agency's best intentions, sometimes our parent company tells us "No" or requires another layer of approvals - Since the re-organization last year, overall, our work, efficiency and team connections have all improved but specific roles and responsibilities within disciplines are still undefined or teams are not quite as integrated as others making career pathing or promotion difficult.

    I have been working at AMP Agency full-time

    Pros

    People are extremely smart and without ego. They don't back down from challenges presented to them and aren't afraid of working in uncharted territories to determine the best path forward. AMP is also showing strong momentum and is evolving in order to be a leader in the digital/technical solutions space. It's an exciting time to be here and be a part of this growth.

    Cons

    - Due to rapid growth, there's some lag with getting the right resources in place so bandwidth can become a concern - Benefits are slightly below average - Compensation could be more competitive - Seems to be a lot of red tape with parent company on pushing through raises/promotions
