    Pros

    - Great culture
    - Work on the latest and greatest in ad tech
    - See the products you deliver in action internally and externally

    Cons

    Not many negatives to cite. Maybe that some of the higher management is too conservative in their approach to team management, communication, and project delivery.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Centro full-time

    Pros

    - Generous unlimited paid time off and benefits package
    - Great culture
    - Coworkers are fun, young and positive
    - Nice office and a great variety of snacks

    Cons

    - Politics, politics, politics.
    - As long as you are friends with your manager you are rewarded with raises and promotions. I have witnessed people who pawn their work off onto others and do nothing but sit on facebook all day get rewarded while others who work their tails off go unnoticed.
    - Hard to grow your career when they would rather hire externally at a lower pay rate.
    - Pay is not good and raises are difficult to get. If you fight for a raise you are lucky to get 2%.
    - Bonus' are a total joke.

    Advice to Management

    If you want different results, do something different!
    Take the genuine concerns of your employees seriously.
    I am unsure of what the executive team actually does but holding them accountable for their actions and unrealistic forecasts would be a start.
