    Pros

    There's so many positive things to say but I'll try to narrow it down: - Culture: I've encountered very few people that aren't good natured, always happy to help, have a team-work and can-do attitude, and always wanting to praise one another - Perks: They ain't cheap! - a plethora of free snacks stocked weekly, monthly lunch and happy hour (+more depending on your team), volunteer activities that always in happy hour, arcade room, etc. Oh, and you get to visit Paris to meet the global team once a year - Benefits: Great benefits, health care, match 401k, and reimbursement for your cell phone and commute - Office: Getting very cramped but we are moving to a bigger place soon - and that was after extensive input from all employees, they truly value your opinion - Other: Very little negativity all around, very transparent about the business in every way including earnings

    Cons

    - Depending on your team, you may not get the cushier perks that other teams do, but again dependent on your manager - Some red tape to deal with here and there, especially when it comes to promotions because of "global policies" - Minor communication growing pains between the US market and Paris sometimes

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Listening to your employees, having frequent one on one meetings so issues are reported and resolved quickly, consistent with benefits and organizing activities for employees and proactively seeking new talent

    Pros

    In 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.

    Cons

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

    Pros

    I'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.

    Cons

    Communication 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 Management

    Promote from within, they deserve it.

    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

    Cons

    Because 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 Management

    De centralize and allow more control and flexibility within the regions outside of the Paris headquarters.
