Do any agencies have a good reputation, good work, and good work life balance? Every time there’s a post to ask opinions, every agency gets shit on and as I look for a new gig, having a hard time discerning what would be the right move.

Smaller independents often have more of a pulse on these things. Not always but they have autonomy from a holding company to make decisions outside of a machine. The trade off is recognition (vs reputation) I guess?

They may be more chaotic though if they’re lean/short staffed which means you might be stretched thin.

I have decent work-life balance, but it totally depends on the account, the team, and your department leadership. The work is subjective.
