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

    Pros

    Good integration especially when you come from outside Spain Friendly people aged 25 - 35 yo Cultural diversity Lot of personal-time (everyone is gone from the office at 6pm)

    Cons

    - Unexperienced management: lack of transparancy and rationality when taking organisational decisions , do not receive and apply feedbacks, low level of knowledge regarding their markets and sales methodology - No career path - Low internal promotions - No inspirational leadership - Lack of employees protection: people dismissed within 2 hours notice, psychological strains (HR convocations without subject notice), temporal dissmissal for invalid reason regarding law (example: you broke the elevator screen and we've seen that in camera)

    August 4, 2020Criteo People Team

    Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback. We believe that our team members are at the heart of what we are at Criteo, and our international and dynamic team members make us unique. We focus on bringing in both external hires who bring outside expertise, skills, and experience, as well as creating internal opportunities for appointment to roles in management. We work hard to ensure those who are in our manager roles have the right training and development to be effective leaders. This includes a focus on creation of a coaching and development culture. In our New Business organization we’ve been working to create a clearer career path for our team members to build and grow their career at Criteo, and we know we can always do better. We aim to take fair people decisions, and have open feedback conversations as well as manage the performance of our team members in a consistent way, and where transitions occur, we aim to do so with fairness and integrity.

    I have been working at Criteo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits Easy to get promoted if you know how to play politics or speak French If you don't have to be treated fairly and just get your paycheck, it might be the company for you.

    Cons

    -management is lacking professionalism in basic skills (although I do not blame them, as they never needed them) - code of conduct does not exist in some teams - team leads are given responsibilities but cannot make any decisions and yet still behave as managers and remind you about hierchy - no career path and no clear goals in most of the teams - senior employees are leaving or are unmotivated to help other team members and care only about their jobs and targets - lack of confidentiality in HR team, they are just gathering information for the managers (none of the meetings are confidential, if you are working in Criteo now, please remember this) - lack of cooperation between teams - employees are treated like children instead of professional advice and support - feedback is not welcomed, specially if given to French employees and ignored in many cases - employees who are the manager's friends are receiving special treatments everyday and nobody is reacting, because it is a closed circle of self-supporting and covering tracks (very visible recently - did you think we don't notice?) - junior profiles are hired because it is cheaper and easier to control, people come to have fun in Barcelona and do not complain, after a while they leave - specific people only are "asked" by the managers to add a positive review of the company (October) Criteo is creating an illusion and a bigger lie every month. All employees are playing along and clapping as we all want to keep our jobs. Things are getting worse with each quarter, targets are unrealistic and there is no support from management. People skills are missed, because what is important is "projects". People are fired as if they did not mean anything. Meanwhile some managers can spend budgets on their friends and their needs or take sick days whenever they want without documentation.

    It is hard to find career path from current position. No room to growth. Company is working hard find better solution about this, but those don’t sound practical and adaptable. So manu people leave company 1-3 years.

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

    Pros

    - very good option to start a career in the web/digital industry and in a very international environment - overall good managers - great office and employees

    Cons

    - young management team that often has no other experience than Criteo: some freshness in the ideas is sometimes needed - now hiring pretty much only junior people - career path limited in the Barcelona office (team lead positions but quasi non existant opportunities for product/specialist/senior/strategy positions in Barcelona)
