Gender balanced salaries, leadership, and benefits.
As its HQ is in Paris, which is notably culturally different from US (though they try), some things move slowly

The job is okay as a stepping stone and certainly provides you with experiences, but I don’t see a quality future here for anyone. I would rate this company lower if I could.
The sales team quite honestly feels like a Highschool. The managers are not trained for their positions, they are in the positions because they joined Criteo at a time when Criteo prospered and “proved” themselves when all it took was spamming clients into oblivion. They do not know how to offer advice, they will only look out for themselves, and have on many occasions said things that should have been cause for HR reprimands. But hey, that’s just sales. This job causes undue stress and they will encourage you to work overtime and will reward the most nonsensical luck as if it were proven strategy. There are better jobs out there but if you’re in a pinch the benefits are great and the pay is decent. The name isn’t too bad on a resume either

Great benefits, friendly & diverse mix of people, CEO seemed great
work was very boring, felt difficult to connect with my team due to remote work, boring product

Great product! Hopeful for the future!
I’ve been with Criteo for less than one year. I was very pleased to receive an offer. Today, I was laid off from Criteo. In a five minute digital meeting with my boss, she informed me that my position was eliminated (“a reduction in force, decision not reflective of my performance, return your laptop in 30 days, etc.”), and then she left the meeting so that the HR Manager could provide the logistics of my unplanned departure. The end. This is not my first time being laid off. It is, however, the first time that a lay off felt impersonal. As I was signing my digital paperwork, my boss shot over to me a message via Slack, saying, “So sorry. Best of luck!” No messages from the leaders or the team. Four individual colleagues reached out to share their sadness, appreciation and best wishes before my systems access was shut off. That’s all. I truly feel like a number who was erased. What happened to the relationships that I had established? Did I mean nothing to them? Any appreciation? Did I achieve anything? It feels like a year of my life wasted. If this is the Future of Work, I don’t want it.16Criteo Response10mo

less than stellar interview with a recruiter at Crito
Went through a first call with recruiter at Criteo...When discussing salary + commission there was a disconnect, the position was probably alittle more entry-levelish or maybe just very low paying. When I learned what the OTE was, I explained that # is what I was looking for my base alone.... Which is fine! There was a disconnect and it's better to get these things out early in the interview process rather than later. The recruiters response was " well good luck with that. I don't see that anywhere out there at all". Continued to be smug about what I said. Apparently this person knows all of the media advertising space! What an absolute pleasure to speak on the phone with someone so knowledgeable and professional. Next time, just say "At that price point, I'd suggest to keep your eye open for a more senior role here". What an embarrassment. I could cringe writing this, but he spoke like I haven't been making that $$ as a base for the last 3 years....It was a disconnect for sure, but know how to speak to people.1Criteo Response5mo

The company overall had a great culture and a plethora of benefits. Additionally, working under the team I was in, I was provided with some opportunities to test my skill set in other teams. To actually transition out of the team was a bit more difficult to do, however, possible to achieve if favored by your manager.
Micromanagement in some aspects of the department, and brushing off certain unethical behaviors.Criteo Response2mo

Having worked at a multitude of tech companies, I have a hard time thinking where Criteo stands out. Yes, the benefits are decent - as they are at any tech company. The company is trying to reinvent itself but its highest margin product (retargeting) has a limited shelf life and continues to decline, which then impacts the overall environment.
What is absolutely grating is the gap between talk and action on diversity. Yes, there is talk of diversity and programs and so on. But where it counts - leadership and upper management, there is no diversity. From C level down to VP level, at least as far as the US is concerned, you will be hard pressed to see a black or brown face. Yes, there are plenty of women - all caucasian. So its like the Mad Men era, except they decided to let only those who were in the office ( men and women) now join management.4
