Pros

Great product and technology. I've never been working with such talented people and this really makes a big difference

Cons

There can be a big difference in compensation for 2 employees at the same position. People talk so that does create tensions.

Advice to Management

Some employees have been there for a long time and it doesn't feel like they are treated accordingly. I'm mainly talking about the equity and compensation. This does not make people want to stay too long in the company as they don't see such a great reward in staying.

    Pros

    - Strong technology
    - Young team spirit in an international environment
    - Reasonable targets
    - Some very talented people
    - Amazing office in Paris

    Cons

    - Absence of corporate culture
    - Low salaries VS competitors (for some specific departments)
    - Career prospects not in line with performance levels
    - Lack of transparency from top management
    - Repetitive tasks with no flexibility or "out of the box" thinking required
    - Having fun at work is not a concern in some specific departments
    - Lack of directions and communication from the top management
    - Reward not necessarily granted to the right person

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your existing talents, invest in them and they will always deliver beyond your expectations. Create a fun atmosphere at work, make people proud to be here, think about a corporate culture, and start caring. People are your best asset, rewards need to be on a meritocratic level and not on a friendship one. Finally, start listening to what your employees are saying, listen to their concerns, listen to their expectations, listen to their ideas and accept to be wrong when you are, that's how progress starts.

    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 Management

    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.
