    I worked at Centro full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Awesome people; there's definitely a "family" vibe here - A great hands-on learning experience for all things programmatic (if you would've asked me what a "pixel" was 3 years ago, I would have thought you were asking me about the quality of my phone's camera...) - Flexible time off - Great work/life balance - Snacks and bevvies (yay!) - Above average salary - Open-door policy with management (speaking for the...

    Cons

    - Snacks and bevvies (I've gained 10 lbs since being here... thanks a lot...) - Bonuses are not consistent. We're paid well, and a lot of companies don't have bonus structures anyway, but this is still worth acknowledging. - Changes in "structure/management/product focus/etc." is exciting in my opinion, but can understandably be confusing at times. This seems to be the norm at a lot of tech companies. Not quite a "con",...

    Advice to Management

    Not just to management, but to everyone: - Always be transparent; bad news is better than being kept in the dark. - Be open to change, and be willing to accept that companies face challenges when they grow. No matter where you are - things won't be perfect 100% of the time; understanding of this will help you appreciate the highs, and brace for the lows. - Rather than speaking poorly of a company, be thankful for...

    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!

    Advice to Management

    Continue being open and sharing with the organization. I have never really felt "blocked out" by our management and executive teams since they have been very open about the company, issues and changes coming down the pipe.

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

    Pros

    It's clear that the company, as a whole, makes an effort to invest in their employees. My experience won't be the same as everyone else's, as I lucked out with an incredible manager.

    Cons

    Nothing noteworthy here - a lot of the hires can be quite young, so there's a certain amount of immaturity/communication challenges that come along with the territory. This isn't something you can necessarily escape from from a lot of companies so you might as well get used to it!

    Advice to Management

    No advice - just, thank you.

      I worked at Centro

      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.

      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...

      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.
