    Former Employee - IT Director  in  Milford, CT
    Former Employee - IT Director in Milford, CT

    I worked at T3 full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I would say there was a good quality with respect to work-life balance which can be problematic at some companies but I did not feel was a problem here.

    Cons

    I would say there was a poor support with respect to training which can be a positive benefit at some companies but I did not feel was provided here.

    I worked at T3 full-time

    Pros

    A small agency gives you the ability to touch a lot of accounts. Great ownership

    Cons

    Middle management has something to be desired. There are a lot of inflated titles for those who do not deserve it. The satellite offices outside of Austin are often out of sight out of mind

    Great work/life balance and office culture

    I have been working at T3

    Pros

    Collaborative team efforts, fun working environment, great management and mentorship, work/life balance is understood and appreciated, T3&Under program, dogs allowed in office

    Cons

    Good cross-office communication and team motivation levels are sometimes difficult to achieve. Employees should be given more opportunities to travel back and forth between offices to overcome these things.

    I have been working at T3

    Pros

    cool building, candy fridays, lots of parking, nice proximity to pease park, current software/computers

    Cons

    Siloed team structure, intolerable work hours, no praise or recognition, favoritism among specific departments for raises while other departments have zero structure, no morale, goals do not relate back to raises, if reviews/raises were even granted on an annual basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire leaders that are competent and not just paper pushers. Offer advancement and strategy to encourage growth within the company.

    Current Employee - Producer in Austin, TX

    I have been working at T3

    Pros

    Decent work/life balance, big name clients, new office (sometimes miss the houses), those that do the actual work are some of the hardest working people I've ever worked with, really appreciate the extra time over Christmas to put my family before clients

    Cons

    It's not what it used to be, even in the post-glory days. All work, no perks. Dogs are gone, no profit sharing, no bonuses, below average benefits, rumors that the bring your baby to work program will be gone soon as well, no culture (a bowl of candy every Friday is not culture). Owners rarely come around anymore, and as a result many notice a growing good 'ol boy network in the agency. We work so hard - nights, weekends, holidays. We come in early, work our tails off, and then leave late at night.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people (especially managers/directors) who can walk the talk. Agency is overly siloed, and there is a growing resentment between the departments. Everyone is burned out and jaded... please give us a reason to be excited to come to work in the morning! We want to love this company.
