    Pros

    The product works. They hire really smart and talented people

    Cons

    Working for a foreign company whose country has a lot of rules forcing employee benefits and living in a country that doesn't means you don't get the same level of benefits they do. There's little transparency from management into what else is being worked on to keep evolving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent and invest in your people.

    I have been working at Criteo as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Perfect culture
    - Top working environment
    - Awesome international teams

    Cons

    - carreer management is very very bad
    - company is focusing on growing, which means it is more concentrating on hiring new talents, and not taking into account expectations of current workers, which explains why many old timers are leaving every months

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Criteo for several years and have seen the remarkable growth of the company.
    I am proud of being part of it, but i am very disappointed by the lack of growth opportunity that does not meet my expectation. Moreover, this overal feeling is widely shared by nearly all of my coworkers,meaning i am no fool.
    Top management should consider in investing more in internal talent while continuing to attrack new people...

    I worked at Criteo full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great tech company. Company changed significantly over the period I worked there from needing to educate the market / chase budgets. Almost to the point where they would inbound. Kudos to tech team for asking such a disruptive product that worked.

    Cons

    Bigger the organisation the bigger the political plays start to come in. Salary was not particularly competitive but that's because so many people wanted to work there.

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

    Pros

    Smart people, fun colleagues, healthy work environment. Working hours are reasonable, even during crunch time. New MD (as of 5/2013) may have a positive impact.

    Cons

    In a growing company such as Criteo, the voluntary turnover in London is slightly too high. A few colleagues left because salaries stagnated (compared to the market and despite the company booming), others because of a few bad managers. Uneven management -- politics plays too big a role, unfortunately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The office is truly very interconnected... best to boost all departments and raise all boats

    I have been working at Criteo full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to work if you are new to digital, a graduate or a 2nd jobber. Alternating every two weeks are 1 of 2 events for staff: beer 'o' clock and sushi/pizza lunches, which is good for morale on those days. The Criteo product actually works, which makes the job a whole lot easier. The company as a whole is going in the right direction, it will continue to grow and will enjoy a successful financial event at some point in the future. It is great feeling to be a part of something so successful!

    Cons

    There is no staff development at all which leaves progression and the prospect for growth perpetually up in the air, there is not much of a meritocracy within the company and praise is not often given. The very, very senior management is impressive, but below your MDs and certain Directors, the management and senior staff are uninspiring, not there by merit but more because of relationship. There is a heavy Yahoo influence and legacy in the company which lends itself to the classic 'Old Boys' issues. There is also a very high churn of staff at Criteo which either shows they hire the wrong people or are not offering the right opportunities. Criteo is no longer a startup, it is a hugely successful growing global technology business, yet there is only IT support one day a week and the Wifi does not work properly in the UK office. The pay and remuneration is not as high as other companies and much lower than competitors. Partly this is due to how successful Criteo is and also partly why Criteo is so profitable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look after your existing staff and work with them to set measurable and achievable development and growth plans. Pay more; too much time is wasted and money spent on recruitment and strategy, when the right people are there looking to build a career you should look after them.
