    Ik heb voltijdgewerkt bij Centro voor meer dan 5 jaar

    Pluspunten

    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.

    Minpunten

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

    Advies aan management

    Keep scaling team growth with new-account growth...you're the best services company on the planet...those employees will also make SaaS partners very happy as long as they're not stretched too thin.

    Pluspunten

    I have never worked for a company that is so supportive and encouraging. Everyone here, regardless of role or title, should feel like they have a voice within Centro and can make an impact and a difference, you can. Centro is a special place that will allow the opportunity to grow your in your career and personally.. They invest in their employees and genuinely care about personal and professional satisfaction.... There are lots of opportunities to move into different careers and gain new experiences, you just have to take advantage of them. I have grown more in my time at Centro than I have at any other company. To succeed and grow, you will need to work more than 9-5 some days or weeks but one at the company feels work is the most important part of life. The benefits are good and I like the Flexible Time Off policy. The Chicago office is always well stocked with snacks, drinks and various alcohol. The layout and decor is welcoming and wonderful, and the office is filled with amazing people building and using a technology that can change the industry. Things at Centro will only get better in the near future.

    Minpunten

    Sometimes Centro is too nice in an effort to keep the culture the way it is. We need to be better at recognizing certain employees aren't a great fit for their role, even if they're great people. It negatively impacts the rest of us to keep them around. There are also a lot of people at higher levels of the company who have "grown-up" with Centro, and don't see things from different perspectives. The pay isn't... great, but it's fine and there are a lot of other benefits. People can also be pretty cliquey and gossipy. It's intimidating and not always welcoming, but it's not usually harmful or mean. Overall, people are very nice and I have very few complaints about anything to do with the company.

    Bring in a few more outsiders, but don't stray from the culture and initiatives that you have put in place. This is a special place, and you all should be proud.

    I love working here! I think management fully believes in individual growth and if you work hard you are rewarded for it. The company has so many resources and internal collateral that helps you learn quickly and is wonderful to have at your fingertips. The benefits are unbeatable and are truly put in place to make you grow as a person too (free yoga, free gym money, amazing health insurance, etc!)

    Minpunten

    This company is very advanced and constantly growing, so you will have to work hard but that is the case in most advertising companies, so why not do it at a place with great people and great benefits.

    Pluspunten

    leadership and management training, focus on employee growth and development

    Minpunten

    the culture is entirely cliquey the focus is on "having fun" and not getting work done, leaving managers unable to address management issues (any sort of addressing of issues is often seen as "punishment" or "dictatorial")

    Advies aan management

    the philosophy is amazing. but exec team and leadership need to be less worried about "being liked" by employees and remember that everyone is there to do a job, and expectations are high that it should be done well.

    Pluspunten

    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 :)

    Minpunten

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

    My boss & the leadership all across the board cares about me and my development. The resources offered help me live my best, most balanced life, from the benefits, to the initiatives around mental health... everything lines up nicely with my values, and I appreciate the never-ending efforts toward improving. It's very cool to be at a company that truly lives out it's mission and values, and it's comforting... to feel like you are in great hands and surrounded by good people.

    At this time, there's nothing I would change. Where there's good-hearted, quality people, there's great potential for endless opportunities, and for that reason, I see no reason to go elsewhere with my career.

    Pluspunten

    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 extra hours it's not driven by a top-down, pressurized management. We work hard because we love the company, love our teammates and want to do amazing work. No company, or person, ever achieved greatness working 40 hours a week and never spiking at times when needed.

    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 new platform could be built, would be built and, even if it was built, would anyone want it, buy it and pay for it. There were a ton of question marks and naysayers in the company during that time and our attrition levels spiked. However, those of us who stuck it out, couldn't be happier. We launched Basis, our new platform in 2017 and it's on fire. Internally it's transformed our operations and how we operate and, externally, over 200 customers have signed on to use Basis in the first 18 months with growth rates climbing back to their normal historic levels. Sure, there's always things companies can improve on but, at this point, I'll take whatever little problems or gripes we may have (which probably are overly magnified as there isn't a lot of them) versus what I hear my friends at other companies are going through.

    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 get paid more (who doesn't?) but I feel with the continued success of Basis in the market and our growth rates continuing to increase, that will come with time. I get that cash isn't unlimited, and there is only so much they can do, but hopefully we can see compensation continue to rise over time.

    - I've had the opportunity to work with people I like on challenging problems. - My manager cares about my career and has done his best to put me in new and challenging situations. - There's a good energy building with some of the new hires and the product doing well in the market.

    Nothing significant. All companies change over time and experiences might be different based on the team, city, or time period. Overall though, I've been happy over the few years I've worked at Centro.
