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

    Pros

    The people at Centro are what make this company incredible. From our Founder and CEO Shawn, to our interns we call Centerns - everyone I've interacted with at Centro is kind, respectful, intelligent, driven and quirky. This is not by accident; everyone who works at Centro is carefully vetted, not only to determine if he or she is a good fit for the position, but most importantly, to determine if he or she is a good fit...

    Cons

    I haven't noticed any cons to working at Centro. I've heard that other companies in the industry might pay higher salaries; however, I imagine those companies' cultures and benefits do not remotely compare to Centro's.

      I have been working at Centro full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Centro is a very special place. The people I work with have become some of my best friends and most important people in my life. I have never been at a company that cares so much about its employees and their well being/happiness! Because of that, it makes me want to work harder and be successful- not only for myself but for the company. Centro truly, truly cares and I couldn't ask for anything more

      Cons

      Because the turn over is so low, it is a bit hard to continue to move up; however Centro takes care of you.

      Advice to Management

      Keep putting employees and technology first! Investing in the happiness of your employees will forever pay off

      Awesome benefits. Unlimited PTO. Room for growth within the company. Amazing company culture, geared towards building and growing existing employees. Student debt contribution, and tuition reimbursement are among some of the amazing perks that come with working @ Centro.

      Cons

      Long interview process. Not the most competitive salaries.

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

      Pros

      Excellent benefits (including unlimited PTO), highly-respected CEO, and a clear vision that highlights transparency and hard work. The culture at Centro is top of the line, people here are happy to come into work each day.

      Cons

      None that are worth highlighting

      Advice to Management

      Only advice would be to work on creating a more diverse environment- not just on the product/tech side, but carry it over into sales/services as well.

      Pros

      Lots of encouragement to learn and grow on the job. Unfortunately, it's so hard to get in now that I'm not sure that they're even hiring anyone who'd need to learn on the job. Great people. I personally had wonderful managers.

      Cons

      U.S. based offices could use a lot more ethnic diversity. I had a lot of friends interview without much explanation as to why they did not move forward in the process. Some of the sales leadership comes off a little sleazy.

      I worked at Centro full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Centro was a good company to work for. The product - Basis - is fantastic, and will truly be a game changer for small to mid-market sized agencies and companies. Perks to the job were great - unlimited PTO, competitive salary, good health benefits, tons of flexibility in all aspects of the position. There are a LOT of good people at this company. A few bad eggs that stand out, but overall, you'll find many...

      Cons

      In my time there, the company was going through an identity shift from services to software as the main offering. Unfortunately, this was not the first identity shift Centro had gone through, and the market I worked in recognized it, making it difficult to position Centro as a stable company. I was a remote employee, and support overall was okay. My manager supported me well, but beyond that support was lacking. Sales...

      Advice to Management

      Stay on the current path, but realize what your sweet spot is, and adjust your pricing model accordingly. You'll make the sale stronger, and win a lot more business.
