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

    Pros

    Echoing what has been said before of the overall amazing culture. Great chemistry across the teams that service our clients and a company that definitely values the people behind the levers. But something important to note is the overall career growth and skillset Centro arms its employees with. Given the varying clients, verticals, strategies and objectives, no day looks the same and no day comes without learning something new. Centro is exceptional at keeping people on their toes and challenges from both a work and personal growth perspective to be a better version of yourself every day.

    Cons

    Each office does great work, communication across the regions could use some improvement.

    Great people and great leadership

    Cons

    Adtech is a very competitive landscape, it is hard to stand out.

    Thanks you for getting in touch and sharing your thoughts. We think our people and leadership are pretty great too 😊 You’re so right about ad tech being a crowded space – it’s one of the many reasons we think Basis will change the industry – people are looking for a platform to simplify the way they work!

    Centro does a great job bringing in talented, intelligent and caring people.

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

    Pros

    Lots of encouragement to learn and grow on the job. Unfortunately, it's so hard to get in now that I'm not sure that they're even hiring anyone who'd need to learn on the job. Great people. I personally had wonderful managers.

    Cons

    U.S. based offices could use a lot more ethnic diversity. I had a lot of friends interview without much explanation as to why they did not move forward in the process. Some of the sales leadership comes off a little sleazy.

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

    Pros

    Centro sets itself apart by it's dedication and focus to the goals it sets, both departmentally and company-wide. I feel I get to work on something that is innovative and challenging at a place where the people working on it really care. There is ample access to Leadership - they are present physically and mentally, and their enthusiasm and openness emanates throughout the company. I feel I am treated with respect, yet expectations are clearly very high. I am free to do my job in the most effective way I'd like, and am expected to show results. The office is amazing. It's a comfortable place to work, with space for people who like to be in the middle of the action and those who prefer quiet space to think.

    Cons

    Expectations are high and there is an aggressive, startup-like mindset around the work being done, so it is not an environment for those looking to fit into a nicely-defined role that won't change much over time.

    Pros

    Great environment to work in. Amazing people and fun events. CEO is a forward thinker who cares about his employees. Benefits were top notch.

    Cons

    Comp was low. Cost of Living Adjustments (COLA) were nominal at best. Promotions didn't come quickly or as they were rightfully earned.
