    I have been working at Criteo full-time

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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 Criteo full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Ability to learn new. I learned quite a bit of machine learning and got some hands on experience with ML even though I did not have prior experience. They even gave me 3 weeks full time ML training Work trips to Paris Excellent work-life balance (hey, I had 23 (!) days of vacation)

    Cons

    HQ is in Paris so we adapt to them. That means a lot of 8AM (sometimes 7) meetings. At least one (or even two) trips to HQ Communication is a bit hard. I think there is a cultural barrier between offices.

    Pros

    Company Culture, collaboration environment, Best office location in Barcelona and dynamic company.

    Cons

    More and more junior profiles are hired. In the past there was a balanced mix of expertise across teams

    Advice to Management

    Hiring junior people will work as long as there is people with experience to transmit it. Make sure you bring more individual contributor profiles to Barcelona to make sure there is a real career plan.
