        I worked at Centro full-time

        Pros

        Free Snacks and Location. The benefits are good as well.

        Cons

        Centro has tremendous potential to be a leader in the industry; that said they talk the talk but fail to walk the walk, Pay is not competitive whatsoever, Promotion is solely based on who you know and are buddies with...BEWARE!

        Advice to Management

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

        Pros

        Centro is a very special place. The people I work with have become some of my best friends and most important people in my life. I have never been at a company that cares so much about its employees and their well being/happiness! Because of that, it makes me want to work harder and be successful- not only for myself but for the company. Centro truly, truly cares and I couldn't ask for anything more

        Cons

        Because the turn over is so low, it is a bit hard to continue to move up; however Centro takes care of you.

        Advice to Management

        Keep putting employees and technology first! Investing in the happiness of your employees will forever pay off

        Pros

        Awesome benefits. Unlimited PTO. Room for growth within the company. Amazing company culture, geared towards building and growing existing employees. Student debt contribution, and tuition reimbursement are among some of the amazing perks that come with working @ Centro.

        Cons

        Long interview process. Not the most competitive salaries.

        Advice to Management

        Keep fostering growth in existing employees.

        I have been working at Centro full-time (Less than a year)

        Pros

        Excellent benefits (including unlimited PTO), highly-respected CEO, and a clear vision that highlights transparency and hard work. The culture at Centro is top of the line, people here are happy to come into work each day.

        Cons

        None that are worth highlighting

        Advice to Management

        Only advice would be to work on creating a more diverse environment- not just on the product/tech side, but carry it over into sales/services as well.

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

        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...

        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.

        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.
