    Pros

    Great culture and teams- Management are awesome and everyone is more than willing to drop what they're doing to help aid a fellow co worker.

    If you want more responsibility, you will get it. Management welcomes forward thinkers and loves to see people take on new challenges. This in turn leads to greater career opportunity.

    Fun environment- Very cool office and plenty of fun things to do when you have some down time.

    Cons

    Fast-paced environment may be tough to adapt/handle for some

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for showing such belief in our teams and also individually.

    Pros

    You might not heard of the company, but their ads are all over the internet.
    The office maintains a great startup culture without crazy long hours. Resulting superb work life balance.
    The compensation for engineer is at almost Google/Faceable level, I am not sure why it says only 90k here.

    Cons

    The stock price fluctuates with Europe stock, which is not doing so well lately..

    Advice to Management

    Need to hire more ladies :(

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

    Pros

    It's French! The company was not founded in the US. It is therefore way more international and interconnected and culturally diverse than most other companies can even claim to be. This is a ridiculously excellent bonus. They also show respect and importance to offices in all regions. In the Palo Alto office, people work hard but are genuinely nice and helpful. You cohort with people cross-department. There is good food and a clean sink in the kitchen. People eat lunch together. Poker night, and of course in start-up culture fashion, there can be some alcohol in the fridge. That one fact is proof that adults are treated as adults. The location in Palo Alto is perfect (way better than the SF location). In Palo Alto, there is decent parking, te ability to get a parking permit for a garages and great places to eat at the end of the block.

    Cons

    Random shake-ups in management. In hindsight more visibility into why the changes happen - not just standard back-story during the announcement itself, would be helpful.
    Some of my fellow Americans has issues with HQ being in France such as time lag, or feeling a bit less important, having less say. While time lag causes issues in any company, the other stuff is American bias. Offices are worldwide, US can't be catered to

    Advice to Management

    Keep your culture champions happy and thriving. The fact that a post-IPO company can be this cool and welcoming is amazing. Keep it up. More pony's. Go go go!

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, with constant changes to learn and grow in. Values life outside of work and connecting their employees. Managers genuinely want to have successes within their teams and listen and understand your direction.

    Cons

    Communication is lacking from the Paris headquarters to trickle down to local teams, and there seems to be a disconnect between internal teams that may have similar issues. This could be a growing pain, but would increase efficiency.

    They will do better than the industry standard in almost every way. Great people and a great place to work

    Cons

    There is not to much to find bad here. You need to perform but you probably shouldn't be there if you don't want to

    Advice to Management

    Since it is a globa company, management tends to be out of they office they are biased out of.
