    I worked at Centro for less than a year

    Pros

    Close to transportation Free fruit , snacks, and coffee every day is seriously nice There are some good people here. Serious studs. Also some serious duds. Quality direction and company seems to be heading in a positive long-term direction

    Cons

    This company organization does not handle conflict well. New ideas and discussions are tension ridden and awkward. Lots of ego and veteran vs. newbie structure going on here. Probably a turnover problem and not something that will be solved overnight.

    Advice to Management

    The people who have been there 3-5 years+ are a danger to your company. Too comfortable, not questioned enough, too much defensive and protective measures. Fresh blood has LOTS of suppressed ideas and initiative because of this.

    Pros

    - great work life balance, the company cares about the lives of the employees - beautiful office and facilities make it an energizing environment to work in - people are generous with their time and knowledge, great collaborative culture

    Cons

    - a few interns seemed to felt that they were lead to believe that the experience would result in a full time offer when they accepted the internship, but it turned out that HR wasn't very clear about how many positions would end up being open

    Advice to Management

    great job! keep developing the internship program because it was a great learning experience! i enjoyed my time at centro.
