    I have been working at Criteo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The product works. They hire really smart and talented people

    Cons

    Working for a foreign company whose country has a lot of rules forcing employee benefits and living in a country that doesn't means you don't get the same level of benefits they do. There's little transparency from management into what else is being worked on to keep evolving.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent and invest in your people.

    I worked at Criteo full-time

    Pros

    Teams are great: young and international, everyone comes from a different background, and a lot have a passion for tech. Sushi pizza Fridays, pool table, video games etc. What you should expect from a tech company. Criteo also keeps up with new tech (not always at it seems though), for example adapting its CPC model to a CPA model in order to suit advertiser's needs.

    Cons

    As the company is expending very fast, some decision can be slower to take, and everything new tech seems to be taking quite a while to be implemented. For example mobile is an area that a lot feel is exploding, yet Criteo seemed not to be dedicating lots of efforts in it a few months ago (things might have changed). Another point is that during my period there, a lot of management was hired directly from Yahoo, to... leave afterwards, which certainly sent the wrong message to employees.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure all your teams are happy and proud to work in Criteo, and make sure communication flows freely within the company.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Criteo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Especially the SMB department offers career progression. People are being rewarded and promoted if they perform well and show the right behaviour. New ideas are welcome and drive the business forward. You need to decide what you want in your career - if you are looking to work with the biggest clients SMB surely is not for you. If you are interested in building something new every day and career progression you... should happily consider working for SMB. Your management will support you if you support them and they are aiming to pave the way for even more success.

    Cons

    Some employees dislike certain departments or Criteo products. Unfortunately, they tend to forget that a product or department does not say much about the people working there. It's all about career choices and not so much about the ability to work for one department or the other.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep hierarchies low and build good relationships with your employees!

    I worked at Criteo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Strong technology - Young team spirit in an international environment - Reasonable targets - Some very talented people - Amazing office in Paris

    Cons

    - Absence of corporate culture - Low salaries VS competitors (for some specific departments) - Career prospects not in line with performance levels - Lack of transparency from top management - Repetitive tasks with no flexibility or "out of the box" thinking required - Having fun at work is not a concern in some specific departments - Lack of directions and communication from the top management - Reward not... necessarily granted to the right person

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your existing talents, invest in them and they will always deliver beyond your expectations. Create a fun atmosphere at work, make people proud to be here, think about a corporate culture, and start caring. People are your best asset, rewards need to be on a meritocratic level and not on a friendship one. Finally, start listening to what your employees are saying, listen to their concerns, listen to their... expectations, listen to their ideas and accept to be wrong when you are, that's how progress starts.
