    Pros

    For future readers, I am writing this during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    The world is confronting something very terrifying at the moment, and it is sending shockwaves throughout the global economy and inciting a lot of fear, panic and distrust. It is a scary and uncertain time for families and businesses everywhere.

    Moments like this force you to take stock of what you are grateful for, and while I'll be the first to admit this is a weird time to write a Glassdoor review, I feel compelled to share what's happening here at Centro through the lens of my inbox.

    - Nearly overnight Centro assembled a taskforce of people to equip everyone the tools and info necessary to work remotely. We are a tech and services company that grew up on the internet, so it's easy to take this for granted. However, the speed and transparency and effort that went into making this easy for everyone is something I am personally grateful for.

    - Our CEO has scheduled multiple meetings to keep us updated on basic info about the virus, and how its growing across the world. At a time when there is a lot of mixed info in the media, and people aren't operating with the same level of concern - this is incredible. You may read from others about Centro's values around transparency and its care for its employees. It is real.

    - We are individually isolated but the culture is THRIVING. Within days, new inter-office chat rooms have sprung up. Office-wide Happy Hours are being hosted via webcam. People are sending out daily tips on productivity or working out from their living rooms. Heartfelt team-wide notes to inspire eachother. Equally inspirational videos of dogs and cats and babies working on laptops. We may be isolated, but we have never been more unified.

    - Centro has a nation-wide committe that organizes Centro's philanthropy called "The Giving Tree". It also matches some personal donations. This has been in overdrive in recent days.

    On and on and on.

    In all of this, I have no idea what comes next. No one does.

    But I thank God for the people here and places like this.

    Thank you, Centro.

    Cons

    We are services-oriented company. Building our own tech. In the Advertising Sector. In 2020. Expect all of the inherent challenges that come with that.

    Advice to Management

    Shawn and team - thank you. Keep operating with the warmth, candor, transparency, and love you do everyday - and we'll get through this.

    Data Engineer Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Centro.

    Interview

    A recruiter from their California office reached out to me on LinkedIn regarding a Data engineer role in Chicago and asked me for a time to have a phone call. I gave a time but he never called. I followed up after couple of days and we scheduled another call. He went over my resume and gave me a brief intro about the company and role and said a recruiter from Chicago will reach out to me regarding next steps. I waited for few days but no one from the company reached out. I followed up again but the recruiter never replied back. I wonder why recruiter wastes their LinkedIn InMail and our time if they never want to hire someone.
