    I worked at Centro full-time (More than a year)


    Centro was a good company to work for.

    The product - Basis - is fantastic, and will truly be a game changer for small to mid-market sized agencies and companies.

    Perks to the job were great - unlimited PTO, competitive salary, good health benefits, tons of flexibility in all aspects of the position.

    There are a LOT of good people at this company. A few bad eggs that stand out, but overall, you'll find many people who believe in the company, and are willing to help.


    In my time there, the company was going through an identity shift from services to software as the main offering. Unfortunately, this was not the first identity shift Centro had gone through, and the market I worked in recognized it, making it difficult to position Centro as a stable company.

    I was a remote employee, and support overall was okay. My manager supported me well, but beyond that support was lacking. Sales training and onboarding is getting better, but my onboarding process was terrible, which hindered me throughout my time at Centro. If you've never worked remotely before, I would not recommend this as your first remote position.

    Leadership has little understanding of what is happening in markets outside of where they are based.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on the current path, but realize what your sweet spot is, and adjust your pricing model accordingly. You'll make the sale stronger, and win a lot more business.

    Associate Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Centro (Chicago, IL (US)) in August 2015.


    I applied online and received an email back from a recruiter within the hour and had a short phone screen with that recruiter a couple of days later. The day of the phone screen they emailed asking me to set up a technical phone interview which I did the following week The day after the technical phone interview they offered to fly me in for an on-site interview which I schedule for the following week. The on-site interview took a few hours and consisted of technical challenges as well as the standard interview questions. I was impressed with their promptness throughout this process.
