    Pros

    In general - the skillset of the people that work here around the globe. Having the ability to move forward and stay ahead of our clients in their needs as they look to tackle new challenges in the communications world. Also, the benefits are second to none - vacation, health and 401K match trump other agencies.

    Cons

    Working with different markets. There can be more synergy between offices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay focused on integrating digital and creative elements in each office. Also, work to bring each office together more frequently.

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with large clients. Smart people. Amazing vacation allotment and benefits. Opportunities for growth. Management appreciates hard working employees.

    Cons

    Flawed review process. Cliquishness breeds favoritism and distrust among "outliers." Fake, smarmy people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're losing good people because you allow the highly visible and apparent exclusion to continue among your employees. There's a serious morale problem ripping through the office. You can cut the tension with a knife in most meetings. "Fun" activities are often awkward because no one really likes each other. The ones who do look like they are faking it.

    Pros

    amazing benefits and vacation allotment, company culture, quality of clientele and overall work environment

    Cons

    it can be really challenging and high-pressure at first but I really have no real negatives about working at Text100. I've enjoyed every moment of it and the clientele is so diverse that I'm never bored with my work.

    Pros

    Seriously amazing benefits. Five weeks PTO outside of vacation, sick days and summer Fridays.
    Amazing clients spanning top tech and top consumer brands
    Culture is perfect
    People are great, passionate and smart
    Couldn't imagine leaving Text 100 for another agency

    Cons

    Rapidly expanding and sometimes that equals more red tape; losing a little bit of the "boutique" agency feel

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the boutique agency feel even with rapid expansion. Keep the open door policy. Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    Great benefits (medical, dental, vision), 5 weeks vacation, some of the people are great

    Cons

    50% of the upper management seems to do half the work. Many of them stay for a long time and get lazy.

    Pros

    fantastic work environment, great benefits. it's a dynamic fun place to work- mutual respect all around. a bit process heavy but you do learn to appreciate that when you go somewhere else and it's lacking. they work very hard at transparency and communication and do a pretty good job. a tight knit group, they still somehow manage to maintain a dot.com vibe- video games in the office, free snacks, refrigerator stocked with food and drinks, company offsites. client work is rough- working for some of the larger tech clients is not easy but that's any pr agency you go to.

    Cons

    big clients, sometimes too much bureacracy

    I worked at Text 100

    Pros

    Text 100 employs amazing people that are more interested in the greater good of the business and each other, than for personal gain. Managers seek out opportunities to enable junior-level employee growth and provide support with career advice and strengthening important job skills. Text 100 also provides great benefits, with a ton of vacation time and really encourages employees to keep the balance between career and personal life. Compensation is competitive for the agency world and Text 100 keeps employees well fed with free snacks, sodas and more candy than you'll ever need. I'd recommend this company to anyone looking for a great place to work.

    Cons

    One of the realities of the agency world is working on multiple accounts. While this can be a good thing, providing a lot of variety for your day-to-day workload, it can also be frustrating to tackle the many demands of multiple clients at once. It would be ideal to work on two accounts or three at the most, however sometimes it can turn into four or five. It's very easy to get burnt out when struggling to meet all of those deadlines and keep clients happy. I think senior management should keep this in mind when considering capacity. However, I don't think that this is a Text 100 specific issue so much as a general agency one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    One of the things I enjoyed most about this company is the genuine team spirit I felt working on various account teams. No one was too important to pitch in on even the most basic tasks that needed to be done as everyone believed in doing what it took to get the job done. While it can be easy to get caught up in titles and hierarchy, the lack of this is what truly differentiates Text 100 from other agencies. I would encourage Text 100 to keep this going in its offices as I've heard it's not always the case in some of the larger locations.
