      Pros

      Best culture I've ever been a part of. Leave your title at the door - everyone's ideas are welcome and encouraged. We're a big family running a fast-growing company that is headed in an incredible direction. Employees are highly valued and treated with respect. Little bureaucracy. Dynamic and fun environment. Constantly learning and adapting to change.

      Cons

      Not enough to mention :)

      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...

      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.

      Advice to Management

      Stick to the vision, without compromising the values that make Centro unique, and the rest will take care of itself.

      Everyone cares story: Due to bad weather, some flights for the Christmas party got cancelled. We also have missed the year end presentation from the CEO which was supposed to be very important. The CEO responded with a personal email saying that he will is hoping we still are able to make it to Chicago for the party, and that he will come to Toronto ASAP to give us the presentation in person. Great Perks + fresh...

      The Health and Dental plan could be better. - the Dental plan covers 80% - only ($240) coverage for corrective eye surgery

      Pros

      The best thing are the dedicated, well educated and hard-working people. It makes such a difference to morale when you spend your days with other people who also want to grow and to share their knowledge and vision. Management have been very receptive to employees' opinions and put a lot of trust into employees. The compensation is decent, the holiday schedule is absolutely amazing (Ferris Bueller days, Sabbaticals,...

      Cons

      The company as a whole has the philosophy that if it helps you grow as a person, that value will be put back into the company. In return, there's an expectation that you should work hard and be prepared to develop and contribute. This is not a job for the lazy or foolish.

      Advice to Management

      Keep doing what you're doing!

      AMAZING Culture! Leave your ego at the door, working here has never made me feel so comfortable - I feel myself more so than I do at home! I can't wait to get into the office every day. I've also learned more than I ever have in this space while working here. From industry knowledge to technology hands-on skills!
