    I have been working at Criteo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    * Great work atmosphere
    * Excellent benefits
    * Career opportunities
    * Mobility (how cool is to work in Sydney, Tokyo, Singapore or Paris for a while?)
    * You can really make a difference
    * Management cares about you
    * Some teams feel like family

    Cons

    Every family has issues :) so:
    * Cultural fit is a must - and might be a challenge to some.
    * Fast growing business means fast-paced work - again, not for the faint of heart.

    Advice to Management

    Keep-up the spirit! No fear, do the right thing and go-go-go!

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

    Pros

    In terms of the Boston office, Criteo is a great company to work for. I've never been part of a team that is as strong and supportive as the Mid Market team at Criteo, specifically the Publisher Marketplace team. Direct management is hands on, supportive and inspiring, never afraid of getting their hands dirty. They do not micro-manage, but are very supportive. Top management, though somewhat distant, is very positive and always quick to offer congratulations when teams perform well. I'm excited to be a part of Criteo as the company progresses.

    Cons

    Definitely some politics between divisions, but that is to be expected in any large company.

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

    Pros

    I've been working at Criteo for over a year now, interfacing with many departments across the globe and I'm continually impressed with the people Criteo hires, from upper management all the way down the ladder. Seeing Criteo's performance from the inside has ensured me that we have the best technology in the business which is proven out on a daily basis for both advertisers and publishers. If you want a true representation of Criteo's values and what it's like to work here, ask our clients how they feel about the performance we deliver and the service they receive from their AMs; let that paint your picture of Criteo.

    Cons

    Communication across departments can get better, and it has. Really just speaks to the challenges of working in a global company which is also a huge pro.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within, they deserve it.

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

    Pros

    - Empowering, the company is growing very quickly and there's constant opportunity to stand up and take on more
    - Has a non-political culture
    - Great happy hours and frequent social events!
    - Annual trip to Paris for the Summit :)
    - Great product makes everything else easier
    - It's evident how much the company is investing in growth and the future

    Cons

    Because the company is still growing, a lot of the processes are still being figured out. This is sometimes great (gives you a chance to shape things), but can also be frustrating. Theres a fair amount of trial and error in the implementation approach.

    Advice to Management

    De centralize and allow more control and flexibility within the regions outside of the Paris headquarters.
