    Pros

    Good tech stack

    Excellent cutting edge technology being used

    Overall very smart people here. Even the managers are super smart.

    Interesting business you learn a lot about ad-tech here. Although they are a little narrowly focused, they are very good at what they do.

    Cons

    Palo Alto only review

    Higher Management: There are three powerhouses in terms of higher management. One of them is powerless and the two others have favorites. If you are not in the favorites, you are a brick in the wall. If you are a favorite, sky is the limit for you. It is also highly encouraged for you to then be rude to others and belittle other's contribution.

    Regionalism: There is a lot of bias with respect to regionalism. There are multiple regions that have big groups, some of them weak and some of them strong and one of them very strong. This strong region based group also come from the same company which closed office in California.

    Weird relationships: There are multiple couples working in the same team and there are some people who are ok with it. Some people are also not ok with it as it causes conflict. But people turn a blind eye into this issue. This is ok from Paris leadership because they do not care about Palo Alto that much.

    Advice to Management

    If Palo Alto office is not important stop it instead of creating a non-Bay Area company in Palo Alto

    I worked at Criteo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company still have cash. One rare ad-tech company that's still making some money. (Not so sure once we go into 2019)
    Competitive salary, compensation package amongst top bay area companies.

    Lots of work that are either ML related to close to ML needs .

    Cons

    The Palo Alto office is mostly for Silicon Valley presence need, does not have decision making power at exec-level.

    People who move from Paris to PaloAlto gets preferential treatments. They get picked for important projects first, will never get fired no matter how bad they perform.

    All European/Eastern-European manager are blocking knowledge/information from Paris headquarter and favors only those from same ethnic/language background.

    No transparency in peer review system (Managers can take credits away from your work without your knowledge)
