    I have been working at Centro full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The people. They are second to none. I have been able to grow so much professionally and personally from the amazing individuals who work across all our offices. We have amazing benefits, compensation AND lots of snacks ;)

    Cons

    There is truly nothing that I have to complain about, sure I could complain about how many emails are sitting in my inbox but in terms of the company... I am extremely happy to be here!

    I have been working at Centro full-time

    Pros

    Great people and great leadership

    Cons

    Adtech is a very competitive landscape, it is hard to stand out.

    Centro Response

    Centro

    Thanks you for getting in touch and sharing your thoughts. We think our people and leadership are pretty great too 😊 You’re so right about ad tech being a crowded space – it’s one of the many reasons we think Basis will change the industry – people are looking for a platform to simplify the way they work!

    I have been working at Centro

    Pros

    Centro has all the trappings of a great place to work: great people; exciting work; cool perqs. But, what really makes the company special is its values. Centro not only explicitly states that it believes that lasting success comes from individual growth and well-being (see: the Centro Manifesto) - which is cool - but, it actively lives these values every day. That is truly unique in this day and age, and the fundamental reason underlying why you should want to work here.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge about life at Centro is working in a fast-growing, cutting-edge environment. You need to be adaptable, quick on your feet, and be able to work in a place (and industry) where the rules are still being written. This can be exciting to some, but challenging to others.

    I have been working at Centro full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Where do I start? People are truly awesome to work with. I don't look at them as colleagues but more like family. For me fit is fundamental and I have found it! Open office concept is great to learn, collaborate and feed off each others energy. SO many benefits such as health, gym, RRSP matching, stocked kitchen, happy hours etc. Bottom line I worked for MANY companies and Centro has been the best experience thus far!

    Cons

    Can get really loud in the office which makes it's hard to hear on the phone. Sometimes there is evil food in the kitchen like cake, cookies and brownies which is quite frustrating.

    I have been working at Centro full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Echoing what has been said before of the overall amazing culture. Great chemistry across the teams that service our clients and a company that definitely values the people behind the levers. But something important to note is the overall career growth and skillset Centro arms its employees with. Given the varying clients, verticals, strategies and objectives, no day looks the same and no day comes without learning something new. Centro is exceptional at keeping people on their toes and challenges from both a work and personal growth perspective to be a better version of yourself every day.

    Cons

    Each office does great work, communication across the regions could use some improvement.

    Centro Response

    Centro

    We really appreciate your constructive feedback! Helping our employees become a better version of themselves has always been a huge goal of ours, and we’re so happy you see the many possibilities for personal growth and development at Centro. You make a great point that no two days ever look the same! Additionally, your feedback about improving communication across regions is much appreciated. We’re continuing to work with leadership to ensure more consistency and communication across all regions – from interviewing best practices to workforce planning. Continuous growth and improvement is always the goal! If you have anything else to add we’d love to hear from you at tellusmore@centro.net. -EVP, Talent and Development
