Can anyone give the pros/cons of working as a SM strategist at an agency? I currently work on the brand side now but interviewing for a few new roles and curious if anyone can give me insight on what it’s like.

IMO, the main pro and con is having less connection to the day-to-day of the client's business. It's a pro because you can't get pulled into a new direction as quickly, but it's a con because on-the-fly posts are much harder to pull off.

I would go the strategist route, you will be able to apply that to much more jobs later.
