    I have been working at Centro full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Centro has the best benefits of any company I've ever worked for (health, wellness, 401K, stock options, continuing education, etc.). It also has a fun, and paradoxically relaxed, culture with the best people I've worked with. Love me teammates. I say paradoxically as even though it feels relaxed, most everyone here works hard...it's just that even though we're working hard and, every now and then, we may need to... work extra hours it's not driven by a top-down, pressurized management. We work hard because we love the company, love our teammates and want to do amazing work. No company, or person, ever achieved greatness working 40 hours a week and never spiking at times when needed.

    Cons

    I've been here for a few years and most of the cons are in our rear view mirror. It was a really challenging time from 2013 through 2017 when we were redeveloping our new software platform. Revenue growth rates were falling and we weren't hitting our goals so bonuses weren't getting paid at 100% consistently. There were some dark moments during those years where, candidly, many of the employees weren't even sure... the new platform could be built, would be built and, even if it was built, would anyone want it, buy it and pay for it. There were a ton of question marks and naysayers in the company during that time and our attrition levels spiked. However, those of us who stuck it out, couldn't be happier. We launched Basis, our new platform in 2017 and it's on fire. Internally it's transformed our operations and how we operate and, externally, over 200 customers have signed on to use Basis in the first 18 months with growth rates climbing back to their normal historic levels. Sure, there's always things companies can improve on but, at this point, I'll take whatever little problems or gripes we may have (which probably are overly magnified as there isn't a lot of them) versus what I hear my friends at other companies are going through.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have a lot of advice for management. They're really transparent with the whole company, they do a good job of communicating where we are and where we need to be. They recently announced a big effort to increase diversity at the company which has been a criticism of mine the past few years so it's great to see them acknowledging it and putting a strategy in place to improve it. Obviously, we'd all like... to get paid more (who doesn't?) but I feel with the continued success of Basis in the market and our growth rates continuing to increase, that will come with time. I get that cash isn't unlimited, and there is only so much they can do, but hopefully we can see compensation continue to rise over time.

    I have been working at Centro full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Centro provides opportunity for personal growth, provides its internal teams with endless marketing and sales resources and has an amazing product (Basis). I left Centro for another opportunity and ended up coming back a year later.

    Cons

    The regional offices don't always get the perks of the larger hubs, but that's the case at most companies.

    Advice to Management

    Keep grooming employees to grow within the company!
