Schwab beats street 3q forecasts

     

I’m going khổng lồ let you in on a little secret. The other offices won’t admit this, but the Austin office is by far the coolest at 3Q. They’ll deny it, & will try lớn convince you otherwise, but we all know the truth..

*
Our other offices are amazing too. NYC, SF, San Diego, San Mateo, Charlottesville, Chicago, Vermont, Raleigh, all great — but ours takes the cake. Why? Because Austin. You can’t help but fall in love sầu with our hot summer nights, awesome food, expansive sầu live music scene, và killer culture. I, lượt thích so many others, was smitten after my first weekover visit. I came trang chủ, convinced no other place could ever be right for me again, & moved out just three weeks later. I’m not alone. Some estimates put the number of people moving khổng lồ Austin as high as 157 a day. So, what is it about Austin that hooks people? Let’s walk through the list, and along the way I’ll explain how our office not only mirrors, but exemplifies the best Austin has to lớn offer:

1. The People

ATX: Surprisingly enough, the first answer everyone gives for what makes Austin so unique isn’t tacos. I know everyone is shocked, but calm down tacos, you’ll get your turn. Austin exhibits the perfect blover of southern hospitality, Texas pride, and exceptional inclusivity. “Keep Austin Weird” is the motto lớn, but “live và let live” is the air Austinites breathe. While still considered a large thành phố, Austin has a small-town feel that makes it easy lớn get to know your neighbors, make friends, & build real, lasting connections. The biggest complaint about Austin I’ve sầu heard from newbies to the area is that the clerks at grocery stores will sometimes get lost in conversation with the person in front of you, leaving you to lớn wait impatiently while the ice cream in your cart slowly melts. How’s that for problems? The pace of life is slower here, the communities are tight-knit, and everyone is willing to lớn help out whether they know you or not. 3Q: Our Austin team embodies everything that makes Austin culture amazing. Every member of our team is fun, friendly, caring, and ready khổng lồ lover a hvà. How do I know this? Aside from being around everyone day to day, we also just moved inkhổng lồ our own office và spent the last month assembling everything we needed. Nothing shows people’s true colors like building endless amounts of IKEA furniture. Think baông chồng to lớn the last time you had to assemble multiple pieces at once — yeah, you know what I’m talking about. Assembling an office with this crew was fun & really brought everyone closer together. Even the most tedious tasks become entertainment.

When we’re not bonding over furniture construction, we regularly make time for team outings to get dinner or lunch, go khổng lồ happy hour, or take excursions lớn things like the Escape the Room game, or Top Golf. We’ve also been known to leave sầu early on a Friday to volunteer in the community.

2. The Tech Scene

ATX: Austin’s tech scene is exploding right now. It’s an exciting time lớn be here. There are more networking events, meetup groups, and workshops than you could possibly ever attkết thúc, and that’s not just for job seekers. People are constantly looking to lớn exchange ideas, learn new skills, up their game, or get involved in side projects. Social currency is huge in Austin. I, like so many others, moved here without many connections and found that people genuinely want to lớn help you get on your feet. There’s no shortage of people willing khổng lồ meet a stranger lớn give advice on a job or career path, or open up their network. When you become established here, you then have an opportunity khổng lồ pay it forward to lớn someone that stands in the shoes you used khổng lồ, which creates an incredibly giving environment, and a great incubator for the next world changing idea.

3Q: We place a high value on innovation at 3Q. We are not only looking to lớn keep up with digital kinh doanh trends, but to be the drivers that pave the future of those trends. Our Austin team strives to lớn stay up-to-date with what’s going on locally whether that means attending a Built In Austin or Austin Digital Jobs networking event, attending a women in business meeting, or going to lớn a Tom Hanks’ book reading (Yes, two of my coworkers are doing this. Yes, I’m super jealous). As our office grows into lớn the future, we’re building up to start hosting some of these events ourselves và take a more active role in shaping the blossoming tech scene around us.

3. The Food

ATX: Austin is a foodie’s dream. We have sầu everything. Feeling lượt thích tacos? They are everywhere, in so many variations that it’s impossible khổng lồ get bored of them. Looking for meat sweats? This is Texas. There are dozens of nationally renowned BBQ places primed for the opportunity to lớn wow you. Vegan or vegetarian? We’ve got you covered. The worst thing about eating in Austin is there simply isn’t enough time khổng lồ try everything you want to lớn. Another terrible problem khổng lồ have, right?

3Q: 3Q has this wonderful program called Office Perks. Each office is awarded a specific budget per head, và we get khổng lồ decide how we spover it. Being the food-motivated Austinites that we are, we regularly indulge in Taco Tuesdays, Smoothie Wednesdays, Thursday Team Lunch, and the occasional Tiff’s Treats order. We also have a fully stocked pantry with all the Topo Chico và La Croix our hearts desire, Welch’s fruit snacks, Cheez Its, cereal and granola for breakfast, beef jerky, a spread of protein bars, and anything else we decide to Instacart. On top of that, about once a quarter we splurge on a takeout order of Franklin’s BBQ (top rated in Austin và a 3+ hour wait if you try to lớn go to lớn the restaurant itself). Pro tip: the brisket and banana bourbon pies are to die for.

4. The Dogs

ATX: Every season is puppy season in Austin. People bring their dogs everywhere: khổng lồ the park, the river, bars, restaurants, to lớn work, etc. We even have a bar here specifically made for dogs lớn come and play that charges a cover for pets instead of people. On a typical afternoon, you can find a few hundred dogs running around on the trails near the river và at Zilker Park. If you are a dog lover, Austin is your city. Your pets may over up making more friends than you here.

3Q: Sadly enough, our new building is not totally dog-friendly, which is equally as heartbreaking for us as it is for our 3Q pets. We are working on it, though, and hopefully that won’t be the case forever. In the meantime, with our flexible work policy, you can work from trang chính or leave for lunch lớn visit your furry frikết thúc whenever you need khổng lồ.

Hopefully these three will be joining us again sooner rather than later..
