      I worked at Centro

      Pros

      Great culture with a collaborative environment. Good benefits , good people. Supportive, patient direct supervisors.

      Cons

      Long hours. Certain times of the year were beyond stressful with the workload and often resulted in 13-15 hour days. I hardly saw my kids during the week for months at a time. It just wasn’t worth it.

      Advice to Management

      Centro has plenty to offer but I know I’m not the only one who burned out. Hire more people to alleviate your staff and give them some semblance of normalcy.

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

      Pros

      Centro's culture is unlike any other place I've worked. My co-workers are incredible, and I'm surrounded by high achievers who give 100% and challenge me to be a better professional and person. The benefits are outstanding, and our Chicago office is one of a kind. On-site yoga and meditation, fresh fruit, healthy snacks, and cold brew are just a few of the perks we enjoy! Plus flex time and unlimited PTO :)

      Cons

      No place is perfect, but I am so grateful to have found a company that really cares. No real cons.

      Advice to Management

      Keep up the amazing work!

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

      Pros

      Centro has the best benefits of any company I've ever worked for (health, wellness, 401K, stock options, continuing education, etc.). It also has a fun, and paradoxically relaxed, culture with the best people I've worked with. Love me teammates. I say paradoxically as even though it feels relaxed, most everyone here works hard...it's just that even though we're working hard and, every now and then, we may need to work...

      Cons

      I've been here for a few years and most of the cons are in our rear view mirror. It was a really challenging time from 2013 through 2017 when we were redeveloping our new software platform. Revenue growth rates were falling and we weren't hitting our goals so bonuses weren't getting paid at 100% consistently. There were some dark moments during those years where, candidly, many of the employees weren't even sure the...

      Advice to Management

      I don't have a lot of advice for management. They're really transparent with the whole company, they do a good job of communicating where we are and where we need to be. They recently announced a big effort to increase diversity at the company which has been a criticism of mine the past few years so it's great to see them acknowledging it and putting a strategy in place to improve it. Obviously, we'd all like to...
