    "Excellent Company"

      Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I have been working at Centro full-time

      Pros

      Great culture, great work-life balance, overall a great place to work and to learn a lot about digital media. Great people here which makes for a really fun environment and collaborative culture.

      Cons

      There can be a lack of top-end organization at times which can sometime cause strain on both the account management side as well as other vertical teams in the organization.

      Advice to Management

      Ensure there is adequate coverage across all teams as this can cause issues as they cascade to campaigns and to new business RFPs and opportunities.

      Pros

      Great benefits, great culture, great leadership, great people

      Cons

      None really. Transitioning from a smaller company to a bigger company which has it's share of transition hiccups, but nothing that is glaring.

      Advice to Management

      Don't be afraid to find people that don't fit the company goals and mindset. There is some truth to the saying: "addition by subtraction".

      I have been working at Centro

      Pros

      Centro has all the trappings of a great place to work: great people; exciting work; cool perqs. But, what really makes the company special is its values. Centro not only explicitly states that it believes that lasting success comes from individual growth and well-being (see: the Centro Manifesto) - which is cool - but, it actively lives these values every day. That is truly unique in this day and age, and the fundamental...

      Cons

      The biggest challenge about life at Centro is working in a fast-growing, cutting-edge environment. You need to be adaptable, quick on your feet, and be able to work in a place (and industry) where the rules are still being written. This can be exciting to some, but challenging to others.

      Advice to Management

      Stick to the vision, without compromising the values that make Centro unique, and the rest will take care of itself.

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

        Pros

        I work with great people in a great environment that is trying to make a difference in the industry. I love that I'm encouraged to be a resource and help in any way I can to make a clients day better.

        Cons

        We move fast and have big dreams for the future. Sometimes that is hard to keep up with the changes that come along with that, but we try our best.

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

        Pros

        This company is truly invested in making you the best version of yourself. They really look out for their employees' happiness and also do their best to educate and stay at the forefront of the digital industry. They hire the hardest working and smartest people in the field, so you'll go to work everyday knowing you're surrounded by great people.

        Cons

        Centro makes digital media less fragmented for their clients. With that said, it's a lot of high volume, churn and burn, workload. It surely is a hustle, but a fun one nonetheless. Centro's technology makes it easier to turn around workload faster, but it is still high volume and somewhat inherently stressful job. Upper management does a good job of ensuring employees are happy.

        Advice to Management

        None! Keep listening to the employees, keep being transparent, and keep it the #1 place to work!

        Pros

        Great people, honesty/openness from everyone (including upper management), work-life balance, fun atmosphere. Everyone, even up to senior leadership, is approachable. Being a part of a company during a growth period is a lot of fun - you get to learn a lot quickly.

        Cons

        Things move REALLY fast in the industry - you have to be okay with that and willing to go with the flow.

        Advice to Management

        Continue the transparency with all levels of employees.
