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

    Pros

    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!

    Cons

    There isn't a ball pit - this would be cool :)

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

    Pros

    The comradery here is incredible. Its the team that brings this company to the front of the pack. Centro employees ("peeps" as we lovingly refer to each other) genuinely care about each other, about our clients, and about our direction. Its shows in our work everyday and the results we achieve. Centro boasts a large and powerful sales force combined with industry-leading technology, but its truly the people that make...

    Cons

    Its a fast-paced environment. You have to learn and adapt daily. I am not saying its a con for me, but if you aren't flexible and open-minded, it will be difficult to keep up with the challenges.

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

    Pros

    Centro's culture is unlike any other place I've worked. My co-workers are incredible, and I'm surrounded by high achievers who give 100% and challenge me to be a better professional and person. The benefits are outstanding, and our Chicago office is one of a kind. On-site yoga and meditation, fresh fruit, healthy snacks, and cold brew are just a few of the perks we enjoy! Plus flex time and unlimited PTO :)

    Cons

    No place is perfect, but I am so grateful to have found a company that really cares. No real cons.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the amazing work!

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

    Pros

    Centro has the best benefits of any company I've ever worked for (health, wellness, 401K, stock options, continuing education, etc.). It also has a fun, and paradoxically relaxed, culture with the best people I've worked with. Love me teammates. I say paradoxically as even though it feels relaxed, most everyone here works hard...it's just that even though we're working hard and, every now and then, we may need to work...

    Cons

    I've been here for a few years and most of the cons are in our rear view mirror. It was a really challenging time from 2013 through 2017 when we were redeveloping our new software platform. Revenue growth rates were falling and we weren't hitting our goals so bonuses weren't getting paid at 100% consistently. There were some dark moments during those years where, candidly, many of the employees weren't even sure the...

    Advice to Management

    I don't have a lot of advice for management. They're really transparent with the whole company, they do a good job of communicating where we are and where we need to be. They recently announced a big effort to increase diversity at the company which has been a criticism of mine the past few years so it's great to see them acknowledging it and putting a strategy in place to improve it. Obviously, we'd all like to...

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

    Pros

    My boss & the leadership all across the board cares about me and my development. The resources offered help me live my best, most balanced life, from the benefits, to the initiatives around mental health... everything lines up nicely with my values, and I appreciate the never-ending efforts toward improving. It's very cool to be at a company that truly lives out it's mission and values, and it's comforting to...

    Cons

    At this time, there's nothing I would change. Where there's good-hearted, quality people, there's great potential for endless opportunities, and for that reason, I see no reason to go elsewhere with my career.

    I have been working at Centro full-time

    Pros

    - I've had the opportunity to work with people I like on challenging problems. - My manager cares about my career and has done his best to put me in new and challenging situations. - There's a good energy building with some of the new hires and the product doing well in the market.

    Cons

    Nothing significant. All companies change over time and experiences might be different based on the team, city, or time period. Overall though, I've been happy over the few years I've worked at Centro.

    "Learned a lot, but ultimately couldn’t keep up and burned out."

      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at Centro

      Pros

      Great culture with a collaborative environment. Good benefits , good people. Supportive, patient direct supervisors.

      Cons

      Long hours. Certain times of the year were beyond stressful with the workload and often resulted in 13-15 hour days. I hardly saw my kids during the week for months at a time. It just wasn’t worth it.

      Advice to Management

      Centro has plenty to offer but I know I’m not the only one who burned out. Hire more people to alleviate your staff and give them some semblance of normalcy.

      Challenging business domain, mentorship, inclusive environment. Centro's tech team has a ton of talent and they recognize the value of investing in individual growth.

      Ramp-up on the product is a bit steep, but seems to be the nature of ad tech.
