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

    Pros

    I've had several jobs and I can say that Centro is one of a kind. They put so much effort into their people and the experience they have. They are dedicated to being successful and blood, sweat and tears might come with that. But that is the rewarding part. It might feel crazy, but you are expected to work hard and put in extra efforts to see the rewards. I don't know of any company that doesn't try to run lean or...

    Cons

    Nothing worth mentioning at this time.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused and keep pushing people - the ones that want to be there will be, the ones that don't want to work hard will find their way out.

    I have been working at Centro full-time

    Pros

    This company is unlike any other, and anyone working here will agree. There are problems (as there are with any company) - but all in all, it is a fun, enjoyable, culture-oriented place to work. The environment is A+, there are snacks, copious options of coffee (coming from someone who is fine with none ;) and tons of incentives to produce your best work. Any bad reviews are people who wish they hadn't been fired (which...

    Some growing pains, as there will be with every company.

      I have been working at Centro full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      I've been working at Centro for a few years now and we've had our ups and downs. But through it all, we've kept the same goals and vision. Additionally, we've been very responsible about how we manage our money, which is a big part of our longevity and stability. The employee benefits are great. I won't list them all here, but there is definitely an emphasis on employee health and wellness.

      Cons

      The company did not do a great job getting employees to buy into the direction of the business. It is getting better now. Also, in comparison with other company peers, we don't have as much resources as the competition. I know that is our choice to operate the way we do, but internally, we have to recognize that we don't have as much as the other ad tech players.

      Advice to Management

      Need better communications about what is happening in the business, where we are winning or losing, and why, and where we need to get better.

      I`ve worked in many IT companies, Centro is one of the best. Good work/life balance. Unlimited vacation + home office when needed. Newest technologies. People, people, people!

      Cons

      Not the best location and office building in Toronto (amazing in Chicago). Hopefully will be changed soon.

      Beautiful offices and world class snacks

      Cons

      Once a hot company and no longer. You will shed blood tears and sweat for something that doesn't matter at the end of the day. Upper management take advertising way too seriously and ruins the lives of everyone they manage. From the sales dept to the Media team, this company is truly beginning to crumble. Clients don't care about Centro's offering because they have nothing significant to offer. Oh a DSP? A little too...

      I worked at Centro full-time

      Pros

      The employees themselves are great, talented people.

      Cons

      Centro USED to be a great place to work, even winning awards in this particular category. However, the proof is in the pudding and over the past year or two, the culture has declined substantially to a point where it's completely unrecognizable. The last award we took home for best place to work was in 2016. First of all, it feels like some of the female leaders at this company are setting women back 100 years. All...

      Advice to Management

      Your leadership team needs a shuffle. Your friendships have become a major conflict of interest and there are certain people in power positions without the appropriate subject matter knowledge and leadership experience just because they've been at Centro since the early days. You're getting away from what matters, which is building a great product and culture, and focusing too much on ego and politics.
