Does Centro offer relocation assistance?

Pros

The people are hardworking, driven, talented and friendly. Centro's proprietary software (Basis DSP) is the #1 User-Voted DSP by G2 Crowd. Centro has premier partnerships with Google and Facebook. This makes media planning fun and it also means you have access to a wide variety of resources that you wouldn't necessarily be able to access at a smaller ad agency. The career development paths are clear and the managers/leadership truly care about your training/development. Centro has a great benefits package.

Cons

Sometimes you might be required to work longer hours to meet quick deadlines. Some regions and teams are stronger/better than others.

Does Centro offer massages?

Pros

Close to transportation Free fruit , snacks, and coffee every day is seriously nice There are some good people here. Serious studs. Also some serious duds. Quality direction and company seems to be heading in a positive long-term direction

Cons

This company organization does not handle conflict well. New ideas and discussions are tension ridden and awkward. Lots of ego and veteran vs. newbie structure going on here. Probably a turnover problem and not something that will be solved overnight.

Advice to Management

The people who have been there 3-5 years+ are a danger to your company. Too comfortable, not questioned enough, too much defensive and protective measures. Fresh blood has LOTS of suppressed ideas and initiative because of this.

Does Centro offer dental insurance?

Pros

People you work with: + People are willing to listen and take in your opinion (regardless of what level you/they are in) + People do not have huge egos (or at least they manageable) + People do good work (most of the time) Office: + New Toronto office is pretty cool, right at Union Station, part of WeWorks - so unlimited beers, and frequent events. Extra Stuff: + Above average pay (for Canada) + Standard benefits ( RRSP matching upto 4% of Salary, health, dental...) + Good work/life balance + Flexible work hours + Unlimited vacation

Cons

- Flexible work hours (sometime it gets hard to reach a decision when people are in the office at different times) In the previous years when the company was struggling some of the company goals were unrealistic, which caused us to not hit the bonus.

Advice to Management

Toronto is becoming a more attractive place for Tech companies, make sure the salaries keep being updated to reflect this.

+ Standard benefits ( RRSP matching upto 4% of Salary, health, dental...)

Does Centro offer a wellness program?

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 feel like you are in great hands and surrounded by good people.

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.
