    Pros

    Great office, lots of perks, relaxed work environment and team are friendly - like a big family!

    Cons

    HR is a little scattered, some things always drag back to Paris (HQ) and decisions are somewhat decentralised at times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going, you're doing great but promote from within!

    I have been working at Criteo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work, smart and dedicated people, the company has created a very fun place to work in with some great ethics and values enabling you to perform at your best. The workplace experience team go above and beyond to ensure they create the best possible environment to work in with loads of team-building activities and social gatherings. This used to be one of the best companies to work for. It's one of the last remaining independent AdTech companies with an amazing reputation in the industry. It still has great potential if management manages to steer the boat around and go over recent hurdles.

    Cons

    Things have changed over the course of 2018. Dramatically. No clear vision, strategy, or direction. As a result, many great and dedicated employees, including key and senior management, have left the company across all divisions. Due to the recent changes, politics have found their way in, leaving little room for growth to non-politicians (promotions of the same employees every 6 months, promotions of people from specific offices, etc).

    Advice to Management

    Stop changing the vision and direction every so often. The people need to be empowered with clear direction, strategic guidance and a solid vision to perform best.

    Pros

    I found no pros in working for this company.

    Cons

    Company culture is toxic, aggressive and recognition to individual contributors is more important than team effort. The leadership does not hire on cultural fit, so you have a bunch of people that share nothing in common. My worst experience in the corporate world in a 15 year career.

    Pros

    Great Team and lots of smart people
    Fast paced environment with lots of frequent communication
    Good benefits inc gym flex, pension contributions up to 7%, free breakfast on Tuesday, yoga and Pilates in the office, massage, nail bar(!),
    Good pay and bonuses
    Amazing London office

    Cons

    A lot of changing priorities
    New strategy is good but still needs to be brought to life
    Some changes to leadership and team structures have been unsettling for some

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating and get input from the team on how to improve
    Take on board product feedback faster

    I worked at Criteo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice office with central location. Awesome team - some of the best and brightest people you'll ever get to work with. Lots of opportunities to learn. Great chances to travel to worldwide locations. Subsidized gym, free healthcare, great pension match, train ticket loans, cycle scheme. Good reputation among retailers and travel clients means you get to meet and work with the top brands in UK and EMEA. The UK senior management team was a delight to work with.

    Cons

    A few weaker managers, reporting in to Paris. Agencies don't like Criteo and you can find it hard to get much love from them. Occasionally a Sales Target came out of the blue that was seemingly dreamed up without any rationale, but it wasn't frequent enough to be a real issue.

    Advice to Management

    The development of career paths should be further invested in. Last year, there was a feeling among many staff along the lines of 'what is our mission statement? What are we working towards?'
