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

      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.

      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.

      Pros

      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.

      Cons

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

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

      Pros

      Young, fun coworkers. Nice benefits package. Free snacks but they went downhill. Keg and cold brew (sometimes) on tap

      Cons

      - Worked 11+ hour days on a regular basis due to unsustainable workload - The Basis platform data frequently had issues (delays, inaccurate data that doesn't match the source, etc). The Basis platform development team only prioritized changes requested by clients in order to win business; didn't listen to the internal employees critiques, recommendations - Sales reps were extremely difficult to work with and had unrealistic...
