I have been working at Criteo full-time
Criteo’s compensation is amongst some of the highest in the industry. Benefits are great. Workplace team tries hard to keep us all afloat with events every so often.
The people are toxic (especially those who’ve been at the company for a few years). They’re put into management positions with NO experience outside of Criteo. Needless to say, these individuals make... terrible manager because they don’t take the time to teach you anything because in their minds you should already know everything they know. Stress levels are through the roof across all sides of the business. There is so much pressure to rake in revenue. Constant reorgs and the company’s products don’t align with one another as some are in fact competing with one another. Criteo is severely understaffed and many people have left the company in the past few months due to this issue which is leaving Criteo even more understaffed. With holidays right around the corner, I’m not sure what to expect.
Advice to Management
Hire more people and STOP spreading your employees so thin. 5B5Y won’t happen if there are 5 people left working for the company.
I have been working at BlaBlaCar full-time for less than a year
Despite the very difficult context, this organization has shown its true colors. People-first is clearly how this place operates. I'm amazed at how they have risen above the restrictions, revenue... reductions, and other obstacles to success, and responded with ingenuity, humility, and transparency. The message from the top down has been one of empathy, but also somehow giving strength to the workforce by maintaining the hunger for success and motivating the teams to continue to find value in their work and in themselves. Having a lot of past history with companies going through troubled times, I can honestly say the toxicity has not taken root and that is something to be proud of. Maybe it's because it was never here, lurking in the shadows to begin with? It feels good to be in a place that cares and takes care of its people, and thrives in the face of adversity. Also very nice to be in a female-friendly environment, even if there are not a lot of women in engineering. Staff is genuinely a nice bunch of people, who try their best, and work well together. I feel lucky to be in a nice culture that is present at all levels.
Covid has stripped us of many of our luxuries -- blablabreak, the weekly drinks at the Favart, and other niceties of the pre-covid life. Not going to lie, I miss those perks. Covid has also... impacted our team growth, so some teams have a lot of work right now while we are hiring. On the bright side, hiring is a huge priority, people who signal the need to be scaled are heard and responded to. The next 6 months will probably be a challenge for the organization, even if we are optimistic about rebounding given early indicators.
Advice to Management
Keep innovating and investing. Continue showing your staff that they matter and the loyalty will pay you back in dividends.
