What Employees Say
I have been working at Centro full-time for more than 5 years
For future readers, I am writing this during the COVID-19 pandemic. The world is confronting something very terrifying at the moment, and it is sending shockwaves throughout the global economy and... inciting a lot of fear, panic and distrust. It is a scary and uncertain time for families and businesses everywhere. Moments like this force you to take stock of what you are grateful for, and while I'll be the first to admit this is a weird time to write a Glassdoor review, I feel compelled to share what's happening here at Centro through the lens of my inbox. - Nearly overnight Centro assembled a taskforce of people to equip everyone the tools and info necessary to work remotely. We are a tech and services company that grew up on the internet, so it's easy to take this for granted. However, the speed and transparency and effort that went into making this easy for everyone is something I am personally grateful for. - Our CEO has scheduled multiple meetings to keep us updated on basic info about the virus, and how its growing across the world. At a time when there is a lot of mixed info in the media, and people aren't operating with the same level of concern - this is incredible. You may read from others about Centro's values around transparency and its care for its employees. It is real. - We are individually isolated but the culture is THRIVING. Within days, new inter-office chat rooms have sprung up. Office-wide Happy Hours are being hosted via webcam. People are sending out daily tips on productivity or working out from their living rooms. Heartfelt team-wide notes to inspire eachother. Equally inspirational videos of dogs and cats and babies working on laptops. We may be isolated, but we have never been more unified. - Centro has a nation-wide committe that organizes Centro's philanthropy called "The Giving Tree". It also matches some personal donations. This has been in overdrive in recent days. On and on and on. In all of this, I have no idea what comes next. No one does. But I thank God for the people here and places like this. Thank you, Centro.
We are services-oriented company. Building our own tech. In the Advertising Sector. In 2020. Expect all of the inherent challenges that come with that.
Advice to Management
Shawn and team - thank you. Keep operating with the warmth, candor, transparency, and love you do everyday - and we'll get through this.
I have been working at Sprout Social full-time for less than a year
I have been working at Sprout Social for a few months now and I have never been happier professionally. First and foremost, Sprout understands that to have a truly successful business, having happy... employees is key. Yes, Sprout offers great benefits which is great and appreciated, but beyond that, Sprout has a lot of structures in place to ensure that its employees feel valued and fulfilled in their day-to-day work life. When a company shows that it cares for its employees, the employees are more motivated to do a great job and know that they are part of something great, and Sprout very much embodies this idea. For new employees, there are numerous check-ins to make sure that new hires are onboarded successfully; there is a whole new hire training program to make sure employees know the product well and get a thorough introduction to the culture of the company. Sprout has a People team, and one of their jobs is to make sure that employees have the resources they need to do their job and to do it well. Every Sprout employee is tasked with responsibilities and then provided the resources to complete that job, which sounds simple and like common sense but is not a reality at all companies, and Sprout makes that a priority. Sprout cares about everyone having the resources they need to work well together, and it is an awesome feeling to work for a company that cares not just about getting things done, but about getting things done well. Culturally, Sprout understands the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion and has events and groups that work towards educating and promoting both of these topics. The office itself in Chicago is designed thoughtfully with comfortable areas where employees can go when they need a break from their desk and ways to decompress with other coworkers, like a game room. I feel extremely fortunate to enjoy going to work every day and knowing that I am making an impact and growing professionally and helping the company be the best that it can be.
I can't think of any cons.
