Good technology, bad mid-level managers and sales environment

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsThe technology and investment in engineers make Criteo stand out. They have a competitive advantage in that they have developed best in class technology and continuously improve the product offering in competitive marketplace. For an engineer or a technical role, this is a great company to be a part of.

ConsThe (sales) work environment is extremely unpleasant and unproductive. In the US, there is little communication between mid and upper level management, leading to confusion, misinformation and intimidation when numbers are not up to par. As another reviewer mentioned, you are only as good as your last week, and mid level managers have made it clear that anyone can be canned at any moment.

The potential for this company to foster a great environment is there, but unfortunately inexperienced managers and politics have stifled employees and created a high churn rate. Managers from the UK office are often in the US and implement drastic changes (processes, target clients, number of employees), sending the US team into a nervous frenzy. This type of boiler room, pit everyone against each other mentality is not how Criteo initially positioned itself, but given that your manager has complete control over you, this is unfortunately what it has become.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure your mid-level managers are fit to manage and not just good sales people. Set achievable targets and work with employees on professional development and a growth path.
