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

    Pros

    The people working at Centro will quickly become some of your close friends. Centro is great at hiring great people, who enjoy working hard and having fun too. The culture of honesty and fun at Centro has never really shifted since my time at the company. Unlimited vacations: people typically take around 15 days vacations days, ~14 paid holidays, and 10 sick days per year. So it isn't literally "unlimited", but you have some leeway. After 4 full years with Centro, you get a 3 week paid sabbatical. Maternity leave is 4 months and Paternity is 1 month. Health benefits are great too. Each year, Centro does "Wellness Week" where they encourage participation by everyone to do a free wellness screening (gives you 30% off health insurance premium). Meditation twice per week, if you work in the Chicago office, otherwise you have to call in. CEO and Leadership is transparent with the rest of the company about how we are doing and what they are forecasting.

    Cons

    Lack of vision for the future of the tech product. I don't think this is always coming from the top down, but somewhere in the middle. Tech side suffers from "paralysis of analysis", slow to get small changes out. Supposed to be Agile, but can't quite be because of the product they are trying to build and sell. Constantly changing strategies and priorities. Not hiring \ more people on the tech side or services side, even when people resign, so people take on more work without more pay. Very difficult to get a promotion or a raise, process takes months. I'm talking 6 months for some people, or more. It is a frustrating place to work, when the work and projects have been influx from the start.
