    I worked at Centro full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I loved working at Centro - best job I've ever had. Working with a mission-focused, value-focused company to make the industry better means a lot to me. I'll take those lessons, friendships and connections with me wherever I go and be a better person for it.

    Cons

    Lot of pressure now to get Basis adoption...it will happen, but Rome wasn't built in a day.

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

    Pros

    There really are some truly hardworking people who care about you - the team is the only reason to stick around. My direct managers were awesome and did their very best to combat unclear expectations at more executive levels. Benefits are pretty good also, holiday parties, events, etc. if you care about that. I will say through COVID, there has been great transparency about the company's challenges and safety measures which was much appreciated during such chaotic times.

    Cons

    Honestly, a lot of sugarcoating. I have been at agencies and I understand an agency workload - this is not that. Usually, you have some days that are long, some are not. Everyone I knew in services consistently worked well over 40 hours, most likely 50-60 hours with a base salary that barely breaks the low income level in any major city. Having snacks doesn't make up for burning out your employees without compensating them fairly. You do get monthly performance bonuses, but you don't get your last two months if you leave, fair warning, because although the company loves to say they love their employees, unless you are sales (who are irrationally over-worshiped) or director level or above, you are just a number at risk of any "it's just business" decision. Good luck also trying to take advantage of the FTO policy - you need to get covered like you are on an hourly paycheck and everyone is so overworked no one wants to cover you, or your manager will not make it seem like it's ok to actually take said "unlimited" FTO. When asked if people should take mental health days during COVID if necessary, we were discouraged because "business comes first" ...until all other companies/agencies started giving mental health days, and then they decided it was a good idea. Constructive feedback is not taken seriously by anyone who hasn't been at the company since it was created. Lack of diversity is one of the first things I noticed, although I understand they are doing what they can to fix this. Super unclear growth path - some people get promoted super quickly, some get wishy washy feedback and have no growth in sight.
