    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 (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Exciting things to work on
    - Nice offices (rooftops everywhere!)
    - Culture of innovation (No fear!): you can try things, you're allowed to fail, as long as you show what you've learned in the process
    - Annual Summit: 2017's one was AMAZING
    - Worklife/balance: overall, working late/on weekends is not encouraged, and for most functions the WL balance is very good compared to most parisian companies
    - Compensation is good/fair

    Cons

    - Could do more from a benefits perspective (show the same innovation than in the core business: what about longer parental leave? One day remote per week?)
    - At times, so many projects going on can be overwhelming
    - Could do more to give back to the community (one day off per year for employees to help a local association?)

    Advice to Management

    Be innovative on the benefits, counterbalance the "negative" aspect of the core business (online advertising is not inspiring) by giving back to the community which would allow us to be inspired working at Criteo, be more flexible on remote work (one day a week!)

    Pros

    The workplace is amazing, the people are very friendly and everyone works together to achieve the goals. There seems to be a lot of room for improvement and personal development.

    Cons

    This is not really a Con, but i wouldn't recommend Criteo for people who are not prone to achieving their goals.

    The downside is that the work sometimes seems repetitive and a little boring!

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

    Pros

    Population jeune, dynamique, compétente et décontractée. Locaux confortables.
    Possibilité de tester de nouvelles technologies.

    Cons

    Perd peu à peu en agilité au fur et à mesure que la boîte grandit, et que la politique prend le pas sur l'efficacité. Devleads globalement efficaces et compréhensifs, le plus haut management moins.

    Pros

    Definitely the overall international environment, all the perks and extra activities we do outside of work and young talent.

    Cons

    The communication between the Paris office and Barcelona office could be improved.
