    I have been working at Criteo full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great culture and talent
    Best in market technology
    Great offices
    Senior management is very approachable and supportive
    Great work-life balance, very little stress
    Amazing benefits
    Demanding yet achievable targets (and a great bonus scheme)
    Lots of social events, including a 3-day long Global Summit in France
    I could really go on but best to try for yourself :)

    Cons

    No official 'Working from Home' policy - but you can still agree this on individual basis with your line manager if required
    Lots of French that speak lots of... French (unless you know French then that's not a problem)

    I have been working at Criteo full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company is very fast-paced and continually innovating, I truly feel that I'm working amongst some of the best minds in the industry and will therefore learn a lot. There is clear career progression and people are genuinely excited to see where the next chapter of Criteo takes us!

    Not to mention the fact it's great fun. There is a brilliant multi-cultural culture here, monthly socials, free snacks, weekly lunches to bring people together and not to mention an annual global summit that is truly awesome!

    Cons

    I have not come across any cons of working here yet.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, it's working!

    Pros

    Super-smart people
    Beautiful offices with great rooftops
    Great benefits including events, catering, holidays
    Great opportunities to work on challenging work

    Cons

    You need to like speed, be aware that a lot of things change with the 'real-time test and learn' culture and be ready to find your own path (smart people can work it out!). Imagine fast ... this feels faster.

    Pros

    Excellent Product, great locations, everyone is friendly and the ambience in the office is vibrant and fun. Their is a fair amount of autonomy for a company of it's size.

    Inexperienced Leaders, Inexperienced managers. Poor decision making.

    Advice to Management

    Culture is more than a catchphrase, it is how people behave.

    I worked at Criteo full-time

    Pros

    Great product, Great management, Great work and play atmosphere.

    Cons

    Start-up, collaborative culture has somehow been lost in the process of becoming a big organisation. Values are not strong enough and not inherent to the management, recruitment,etc... A shame cause the rest is faultless.

    Also beware that in the mid-market department, you're meat to the management which has a rather macro view of the human resources there. As long as you're perform, great...

    Advice to Management

    Try to shine values throughout the organisation and at all level !

    I have been working at Criteo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - great team
    - great people
    - genuine willingness to develop people in responsibilities and careers (not necessarily in salaries though)
    - powerful technology
    - great benefits

    Cons

    - salaries are within average / lower band of the market
    - hard to get an opportunity as a new hire vs. the old Criteo crew
    - job mobility quite often means international mobility

    Advice to Management

    - build a more relevant career path and keep investing in people

    I have been working at Criteo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The energy is unbelievable. I have never worked in a company where people are so positive and nice.
    Lots of team events, parties, team lunch, breakfast and the yearly summit!!
    Very good lifestyle balance and lots of awesome perks
    (Gym, free snacks, breakfast, massages, games rooms, health, retirement plans ...)
    The management keep asking what we would like to have to be even happier in our office. Awesome offices all over the world, with amazing rooftops as well.

    Cons

    I have been in the company for almost 3 years now. It was not as it is now when I joined and I believe that it's improving all the time. I have absolutely no cons to write down. Just give Criteo the time to be even better.

    Advice to Management

    Would be great to develop a 1/2 years expat program to have the opportunity to work in another office and come back.
