      Pros

      Decent clients, friendly and foodie colleagues, decent reimbursements

      Cons

      Lot of heirarechy, partial to seniors and less value to juniors, no growth after a period, feedbacks of juniors not valued, limited exposure and client facing, zero work life balance, favouritism. The senior management will try to protect the seniors and will find a fault in juniors to prove them wrong. Same style of working as that of old times. Not ready for any new ideas/suggestions.

      Worse than getting an STD

      Pros

      Flexible working policy means you can literally work wherever and whenever you want. Also, you're generally given a lot of autonomy to do your work how you see fit. However, this can also mean a lack of support and being detached from your co-workers.

      Cons

      Atmosphere is like a morgue due to the amount of people and business leaving the door. People who aren't particularly good or motivated get away with murder as no-one really manages them properly. Don't get fooled by the flashy expensive office - you'll find that it's empty most of the time and to be honest I doubt they can afford to stay there much longer. Clueless senior management. Awful decisions being made, with no thought about the consequences for their teams due to the fact they don't have an idea what is going on below them and/or just don't care. Good people have left because of this. There have been some cringeworthy announcements where they've obviously obsessed on how they should communicate to the company and failed spectacularly. If they actually cared, they would have already known the right way. The so-called "leadership team" is a closed shop and they quite simply only care about how they're seen by people above them and don't actually lead. If they continue on this path, the company will cease to exist in a couple of years.

      A sinking ship - avoid at all costs

      Pros

      A free bar but nothing to note related to actual work.

      Cons

      - Hostile bullies in senior management (namely in the PR team) - Incredibly high turnover of staff (at least one person leaving every month) - No training and therefore no development as an employee - Flexible working leads to inefficiency and people not doing work required of them - No identity as an agency. Recent mergers have led to a company in crisis with no clear future of where it's going - Low pay and 'sweatshop' working culture - Consistent long hours (regular 12 hour days) - Everyone's far too busy and stressed to help junior employees learn - The furthest place from the 'best agency to work for' imaginable - Don't let the free bar distract from reality. This is a ghastly place to work so avoid at all costs!

      Thank you for your feedback and we're sorry your time at Text100 was not the best it could have been. The company is not just going through a merger but we're building a new agency, so there is going to be some uncertainty during this time. We are doing our best to keep communication channels open and share information when it becomes available. Globally we operate a zero tolerance policy when it comes to bullying in all our offices and encourage any of our people to bring this to the attention of their local HR Team who can help put a plan together to deal with any issues formally or informally.

      Pros

      Great tech clients Lot of learning opportunities Many team building activities and fun activities Great place to build a network

      Cons

      Very outdated approach Senior management is very disorganised Zero flexibility Too much dependence on junior employees. Juniors are expected to be media and client facing, making it difficult to focus on producing food results Too much importance is given to coverage in terms of quantity instead of quality Under staffing issues

      Pros

      Great learning opportunities, if you ask for it Some managers take an extra effort to ensure your growth and exposure, other care only about themselves and not the team.

      Cons

      Senior management is too worried about making clients happy, ignoring the unrealistic demands they make. Employees are excepted to make it happen, come what may. Annual reviews don't happen on time and the raises are average. Salaries do not meet industry standards. No work-life balance. You are expected to come early and work late, even on weekends often.

      Room for improvement

      Pros

      Text100 places a huge emphasis on culture and people. They try their best to keep employees happy but like any other agency, business needs come first. This means being put on accounts that don't help your career development (and often times without an exit plan).

      Cons

      It can feel like the only way to get senior management to address issues is by showing that you have a job lined up somewhere else.

      Cons

      Low overall morale Lots of politics as big changes are put in place Little attention paid to junior staff Not enough direction or support from senior management

      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.
