At Xcede we have rallied around our consultants across all markets including Web Development, Data Analytics, User Experience and Web Design, on both the Contracts and Permanent desk, to collect their take on the key differences between working agency and client side, highlighting both Pros and Cons to help you decide which might suit you.
- In an agency you can work across a wider breadth of projects, working with multiple clients giving you experience on a number of potentially cutting edge and exciting projects as well as gaining experience in different industries.
- You are likely to meet likeminded creative people who are constantly pushing boundaries while meeting a lot of clients and delivering varied work requirements.
- The Environment reflects the agency service offering. Often very relaxed, trendy workspaces.
- Agencies tend to be early adopters of innovation.
- You can get a feeling that you are making a real difference in an organisation as you will see your efforts through to the long term and the effects your work has on the long term goal of the client.
- You can become niche in certain projects and deadlines are more flexible.
- Likely to be offered a more comprehensive benefits plan.
- Hours are more predictable and consistent.
- Often long hours are worked to keep to tight deadlines.
- You will be expected to juggle your work for a number of clients while only working on specific parts of the project, which can feel unfulfilling.
- You may not experience the full life cycle of the project.
- Projects can be longer and less varied.
- The environment may be more corporate and structured
