      I worked at Text100 full-time

      Pros

      lots of work perks and incredibly talented people to learn from

      Cons

      no work/life balance, understaffed, difficult clients that were allowed to treat junior staff poorly, people are spread across way too many accounts

      Advice to Management

      take care of your employees - there's a reason there's been so much turnover recently

      I worked at Text100 full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      The work was challenging, but rewarding. Alcohol at team meetings.

      Cons

      Everything else. The goal of an internship is always to obtain a job offer, or a great reference. Text100 gave vague to no guidance, rarely incorporated interns into how to succeed and was quite honestly not the best place to start out. There are better, more knowledgeable and worthwhile programs else where. This is more of a last resort.

      Advice to Management

      Make sure that you have COMPETENT management, and not people who send items riddled with typos, and are more lost than junior staff.

      I have been working at Text100 full-time

      Pros

      There are employees who are great to work with, though the company in the US has gotten a little smaller in the last year.

      Cons

      The culture has shifted slightly due to some client changes, because of that it's not the same as it used to be, however, there are still some great people working for Text100.

      I worked at Text100 full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Absolutely amazing people -- a lot of companies like to make this claim, but Text100 truly does have great people. Collaborative environment -- regardless of your role or experience, your opinion and input is not only encouraged, but required; no sitting on the bench.

      Cons

      The company is going through a relatively massive change and going through growing and transition pains as it shifts into a Marketing Communication company and evolves from being purely a PR.

      Advice to Management

      Keep doing what you're doing -- your level of transparency, organization, and clear goal setting are great practices.

      I worked at Text100 full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Agency life is tough, but Text100 is among the best tech/B2B agencies to work at. Mid-size agency with a global presence, giving you a small family feel with the benefit of a larger network and client base. Strong culture (not cutthroat like other agencies). Great benefits with over 4 weeks of vacation (may be unlimited now - not sure) and other perks. Lots of opportunities for growth beyond traditional comms work (creative,...

      Cons

      Saw this in another review and it hit the nail on the head: "Work-a-holism is supported and often times encouraged." NY office in particular fosters a culture of workaholism with mid-level and senior folks often bragging about the late/weekend hours they put in. This can be true of many agencies, but it's especially aggressive at Text100.
