    I have been working at Celtra full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    I work in the NY office and they have a great bunch here. What has surprised me about Celtra is 1) how much clients love our product and our people 2) how Celtra achieves so much with such a small team. The platform is very (very!) good, it’s reliable, feature rich and it’s updated weekly with new options. On the publisher side, it’s the de facto solution and I can see why. Celtra knows publishers inside and out, they...

    Cons

    Adtech is a tough space and fortunately Celtra feels like one of the leaders at the moment with huge opportunity on the brand side ahead of us. They (we) have million dollar agreements with Facebook, Uber and Unilever (who love working with us), but the pace at which they are onboarding new clients, whilst continuing to grow our current clients means decisions need to be made quickly and decisively. Management are very...

    I worked at Celtra full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Beautiful office. Some great people to work with. I enjoyed working with my clients and using the platform.

    Cons

    Celtra prides themselves on their "culture" when they do not have any. Most come in, stay in their comfort zone and remain cliquey. There was not a genuine sense of connection between departments, which I found odd being such a small office. No opportunity for growth. Managers have favorites regardless of work ethic. Little to no organization or communication within teams. New hires coming in and out frequently. Found...

    Advice to Management

    Have personal check-ins with all of your team members. Found the structure of Management to be egotistical, immature, and unprofessional. Communicate and at least try to be genuine, simple.

    I have been working at Celtra full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I always choose very carefully where I want to work and I have been fortunate enough to be able to. I picked Celtra and I couldn't be happier. It's a company where you can go and do stuff. You can actually move the needle everyday and help build a company you can be proud of. The clients love our product and I love working with my manager and my team. Everyone raves about the quality of the benefits, but I don't think...

    Cons

    We need to move faster, removing people that don't help carry the load. There is a lot to be done and I don't think everyone is contributing their share. The more my team achieves the more recognition we get, but sometimes people don’t want to help and they get in the way of my team.

    Advice to Management

    Let's push to grow faster. We can hire more people and train them now because 2019 is going to be crazy!

    I worked at Celtra full-time

    Pros

    - Compensation - Mostly great people - Product is brilliant and looks gorgeous

    Cons

    - Perception is everything - Long hours required, even if you get your work done and more in shorter time - 40% turnover year over year - Few bad apples ruin the experience - No work/life balance

    Advice to Management

    Get into the trenches with your employees. It doesn't seem like you have any care about what they actually do on a day to day basis, nor does it seem like you care when they raise any concerns.

    Among my favorite things at Celtra is the company culture. - People at Celtra are very smart and friendly. It's a collaborative environment where teamwork is encouraged. -If you like to have FUN at work then Celtra is for you.

    - People who work at Celtra are always willing to help each other grow and learn - Celtra clients love the product - Celtra products are some of the most innovative in the industry and the product works at scale

    - There was some re-prioritizing that happened which may have left a negative mark on some employees, but that is over now.

    Advice to Management

    additional equity in the company would be a nice motivating factor as you stay longer with the company.

    Cons

    I can't think of any significant downsides, but there are some pet peeves. - Open floor plan. Like everybody else, this company has one, and it's as distracting as most studies suggest. - Outgrowing Office Spaces. The company often outstrips its predictions for expansion, meaning that office space fills up more quickly than anticipated.

    Peers. Everyone is prepared to help if your reach out. People work hard, and are talented and devoted to what they do. Multi-office and multicultural company. People from all around the world work at this company, which contributes to richness in diversity on several levels: the way of thinking, work methods, even humor. It also requires a certain amount of open-mindedness and I believe people who work at Celtra have...

    Cons

    Office vibe. I can only speak for San Francisco office. It is very quiet and the general vibe is that there is not a lot going on. Most managers are in New York, and we have not had a person that would be fully dedicated to office management till recently. Those two factors contribute to the situation. We don't have a lot of social / team building events, but who knows, that might improve. Startup mentality in a company...
