Century Interactive has a new office in the heart of downtown Dallas to call home. Similar to CI, the space is bigger, inspiring and filled with high energy.
We loved our old location, and saying goodbye wasn’t easy — the building was within walking distance to the Half Price Books headquarters, Northpark Mall and the newly developed Park Lane Shops — but with the addition of nearly 50 employees since the start of June, space was tight and it was getting harder to grow.
Change can be stressful to even its biggest embracers, with many of us sharing the same fears. What does this mean for my commute? Where will I park? I’ve never ridden the DART! Does this mean no more breakfast tacos on Thursdays?
Josh King, a member of the Enterprise Sales team, was initially less than excited about the move.
“I was hesitant moving because I hadn’t heard great things about downtown, but it’s been great! Everything we need is at our fingertips. The community down here is vibrant and energizing.”
Our team has jumped at the chance to make this new space our own. Several rooms are developing their own theme, including the Casino Room, Penthouse Room and Under the CI Room.
Being in close proximity to Klyde Warren Park, the Dallas Museum of Art and the underground tunnels running beneath the city, lunch breaks provide ample opportunity to explore the city’s best offerings while increasing your FitBit step count.
“I would have been happy with either place, but getting to explore downtown, finding the lesser known nooks and crannies of the city, and venturing over to the museums on our lunch break have all been pretty fantastic — and I'm saying this in the middle of the summer,” Accounts team leader Ashley Hamilton said.
CI is a fast-growing company, and things are always changing. It’s been 4 weeks since our move, and after a few hiccups involving our internet connection, elevator codes and the CI porcelain monkey taking a nasty fall, our breakfast tacos are back and everyone is settling in.
