    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 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.
