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

    Pros

    I consider myself a Silicon Valley veteran as I've worked for quite a few companies in the valley. Criteo is one of the greatest companies I've worked for.
    Lots of smart and talented people. Some of them are super nice too. :)
    Top notch pay and benefits (has to be deserved, obviously).
    Flat structure. This implies that employees are treated as adults and expected to behave like adults.
    Open and honest communication from the top (very little BS or propaganda)
    Truly diverse with all ages, origins, accents, genders, and orientations treated with respect. Everybody is encouraged to be themselves and treat each other with respect.
    Voyager program designed for those who want to work for a month in other parts of the world. (The travel policy though is not very friendly to those with families and kids.)
    After you have earned some karma, you'll have freedom to do what you think is important (which sometimes can run into some political barriers)
    It is a midsize company which means that there are enough resources to support you and that you can still have a meaningful impact on company's bottom line
    A lot of focus on hiring the right people. I think it is super important.
    Lots of challenges and opportunities

    Cons

    A bit slow to deal with people who don't fit well. (though there is a delicate balance)
    "One size fits all" travel policy is too restrictive for employees with families.
    ESPP is missing to make the perks package complete
    The company is growing so fast that there is a legitimate concern over maintaining the company culture.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great job! Watch carefully for the company culture. Talk more often to the people "in the trenches".

    I worked at Criteo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent culture, smart engineers, good natured people. Food perks twice a week is nice and being so close to downtown PA is a huge plus.

    Cons

    Poor, poor leadership. From high level leadership to some middle management. The people down in the trenches who are doing all the work are constantly misled. Too much politics and too many people maneuvering for power. Employees are not treated well and there is a constant power struggle between Paris and Palo Alto.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in better leadership. Stop importing people from Paris to work in PA. Stop promoting the french from within to leadership positions. Listen to your employees. Stop leading by dictatorship and stop lying to employees.

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

    Pros

    The people the work there are very welcoming and positive group to be around. Lots of great benefits, good snacks, and weekly massages.

    Cons

    Often times most of the goals created for both sales and account management are unattainable, so their employees don’t get paid what they are promised. Lack of innovation with new products.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that the goals you make for your teams can be achieved and are realistic.
