TextNow Named Best Company for Work-Life Balance by Comparably

Written by nick


At TextNow, we’ve always put people over profit. That makes it extra special to be recognized as one of the Best Companies for Work-Life Balance by Comparably, a website dedicated to workplace transparency. These awards are determined by a very important audience: our current team members.

Work-Life Balance Award

One of the most important things we’ve learned during the pandemic is that burnout is real. It’s provided us an opportunity to evaluate everything we do to ensure that our employees feel heard and supported, and we’re honored as a company that our employees have given us such high marks for our focus on balance.

We couldn’t fulfill our mission to bring communication to everyone without the hard work and dedication of our team. That's why we spend so much time making sure that every TextNovian has the resources and flexibility to succeed.

In 2020, we created our Work Best philosophy to let our employees work in the manner that is most convenient for them, whether that’s in the office, from home, a hybrid of the two, or fully remote. We also offer unlimited vacation, flexible work hours, and one paid mental health day every month. Our new anniversary program offers free trips and a one-month paid sabbatical at various employment milestones.

Flexibility first

We put flexibility and clarity first, but don’t take our word for it. See what some of our employees are saying about life at TextNow:

‍_“The employees believe in the culture and the company which tells me that the company provides a culture worth believing in.”_

"Literally everyone I have met at this company has been both incredibly effective and a wonderful person. No Brilliant Jerks!"

“The flexibility, especially how they pivoted during the pandemic. If something comes up in your personal life there is no pushback and people are supportive to help.”

_‍_Oh, and we should also mention: we’re growing! If you want to work for a company that understands that you have a life outside of work and offers the work-life balance to prioritize both, you can learn more about us on our careers page.
