    Great place to work!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    Pros- Empowering, the company is growing very quickly and there's constant opportunity to stand up and take on more
    - Has a non-political culture
    - Great happy hours and frequent social events!
    - Annual trip to Paris for the Summit :)
    - Great product makes everything else easier
    - It's evident how much the company is investing in growth and the future

    ConsBecause the company is still growing, a lot of the processes are still being figured out. This is sometimes great (gives you a chance to shape things), but can also be frustrating. Theres a fair amount of trial and error in the implementation approach.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDe centralize and allow more control and flexibility within the regions outside of the Paris headquarters.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Dynamic, fast moving, unmatched technology with great leadership

    Business Development (Current Employee)

    ProsI've been working at Criteo for over a year now, interfacing with many departments across the globe and I'm continually impressed with the people Criteo hires, from upper management all the way down the ladder. Seeing Criteo's performance from the inside has ensured me that we have the best technology in the business which is proven out on a daily basis for both advertisers and publishers. If you want a true representation of Criteo's values and what it's like to work here, ask our clients how they feel about the performance we deliver and the service they receive from their AMs; let that paint your picture of Criteo.

    ConsCommunication across departments can get better, and it has. Really just speaks to the challenges of working in a global company which is also a huge pro.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromote from within, they deserve it.

    Great team, great opportunity, great culture

    Publisher Development Manager, Mid Markets (Current Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsIn terms of the Boston office, Criteo is a great company to work for. I've never been part of a team that is as strong and supportive as the Mid Market team at Criteo, specifically the Publisher Marketplace team. Direct management is hands on, supportive and inspiring, never afraid of getting their hands dirty. They do not micro-manage, but are very supportive. Top management, though somewhat distant, is very positive and always quick to offer congratulations when teams perform well. I'm excited to be a part of Criteo as the company progresses.

    ConsDefinitely some politics between divisions, but that is to be expected in any large company.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    World-class R&D team, with a noticeable focus on tackling problems when they occur

    Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Paris (France)

    ProsVery strong and modest R&D people
    Respect for technical people : you won't get stuck if you don't want to become a manager
    Ability to make a visible difference in many different ways and be congratulated publicly for that
    Young and fun atmosphere, with lots of events
    Very humble and accessible cofounders
    Strong will to identify and kill problems
    Freedom of speech : anonymous questions (sometimes harsh) are discussed openly by C-level in front of the whole company

    ConsAs in any company growing this fast : useless layers (both human and administrative) between decisions and execution, even though there's always a way to bypass them
    Ambitious hiring plan, but no clear vision on internal promotion opportunities

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus more on making important people happy : internal promotions, competitive salary
    Don't try to impose artifical core values when there are already stronger one, especially in the R&D

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Work hard and you'll be rewarded

    Business Development Manager-SMB (Current Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsEspecially the SMB department offers career progression. People are being rewarded and promoted if they perform well and show the right behaviour. New ideas are welcome and drive the business forward. You need to decide what you want in your career - if you are looking to work with the biggest clients SMB surely is not for you. If you are interested in building something new every day and career progression you should happily consider working for SMB. Your management will support you if you support them and they are aiming to pave the way for even more success.

    ConsSome employees dislike certain departments or Criteo products. Unfortunately, they tend to forget that a product or department does not say much about the people working there. It's all about career choices and not so much about the ability to work for one department or the other.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to keep hierarchies low and build good relationships with your employees!
