Best 3Q Office Series: Chicago

Earlier this year, Chicago packed up its bags and did an office move from the 5th floor to the 4th floor of our building. A group of us worked around the clock to create a list of office must-haves in our new space. We knew we wanted exposed ceilings, wooden floors, and more conference rooms, and in the end, we got that and so much more!
It’s easy for me to say that we have the best office and employees at 3Q Digital. I could talk about our endless supply of snacks from Costco and SnackNation. I could mention that we have an entire fridge dedicated to Chicago’s finest craft beer. I could also brag about our Mother’s Room (aka the nap room) that has a ridiculously comfortable rocking recliner chair. But instead of doing all the talking, I surveyed the Chicago office. Here are a few reasons we love it here:
“Fun fact: the building was originally an annex for Marshall Field’s (now Macy’s, sigh). They are still connected via underground tunnel as part of the pedway, so if you want to do some shopping after work or go see the big Christmas tree during lunch, you don’t even have to go outside!”
“The open office layout allows for great camaraderie, but there are also places to get away and focus.”
“When I was cold, they got me a heater. When winter came, they got me a blanket. Reminds me of something my mom would do. But on a more serious note, it is absolutely the people. You feel the positive vibes as soon as you walk through that door. Makes my heart feels very warm, or that’s probably the heater and blanket, but you get me.”
“We like to cook (and eat), which means delicious and fun potlucks and cookie swaps!”
“The people.” Can you tell how much we like each other (and our blankets)?
“We throw sweet parties.”
