    The notion of working for someone else is terrifying for any entrepreneur. Good job on pointing out all of the benefits that can come form going ‘in-house’ when done in the proper way.

    Well said!

    Here’s the analogy I most often use when discussing working on the agency side is like dating: clients and projects constantly change, and just when the novelty of one wears off, another one comes along.

    In-house is like marriage. You look around and your friends are all with new clients or trying some new tactic that you can’t convince your company to try. But you’re in it for the long haul. You deal with internal headaches and red tape, but in the long term, you might see something huge come to pass — way bigger than if you’d rolled off an agency engagement.

    Good piece Cameron. And congratulations on your marriage ;-)

    Congrats to you Cameron. I think this is the most comprehensive post I’ve read by you. Great to see smart and talented entrepreneurs can still find a place in-house.

    Jumping from running your own SEO company to an in-house position (or in my case the opposite) takes a little leap of faith, a lot of patience and a willingness to roll with the punches. It’s a different animal when your actions are held accountable by someone other than yourself and the client. There are pros and cons to making the change, just like with getting any new job. The hardest part is getting used to the way things work when you are part of a larger firm and not just a one-man team.
