I worked at Centro full-time (More than 3 years)
Amazing leadership, amazing benefits, collaborative environment, amazing "peeps"
Highs and lows of employees collaborating after work hours on 20% work, at times it was very active, other times it lulled during stressful times when probably needed extra effort towards that the most. Most of the time 20% work was during work hours which was hard to manage with other more top functional priorities. All in all though, not too much of a con, just giving more depth of my experiences.
Advice to Management
Keep on keeping on :)
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Centro (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in September 2017.
Recruiter reached out via email and hopped on a call the next day, where I was told that I’d be brought into meet with the team as I passed the initial screening. Then, I was told the position was on hold. A few weeks later, the same recruiter reached out saying the position is looking to be filled in the new year. At this point, they decided to get me on a call with the Hiring Manager, and after that I had to speak with 2 other team members who weren’t really sure about the position I was interviewing for and how they would be working with me potentially, if at all. Next, I was brought in to meet with 2 VPs and the Hiring Manager again - the time between the first and final interview was about 5 weeks (including the lag). Thereafter, I would receive an email every week about how they were interested in my candidacy and then I finally moved on with another offer because they took too long to make up their mind.
Centro published data showing that nearly all large digital ad spenders will adopt more programmatic advertising capabilities in-house over the next 12 months. Available in the report, “Tech, Programmatic and Expectations,” the data was compiled from a survey conducted with research firm Advertiser Perceptions.

"The digital landscape is cluttered and complex, and agencies haven’t found a controlled and effective way to do digital. And, combined with the different and disconnected systems we use in our everyday jobs, it’s nearly impossible to find time to step back, figure out what works, what doesn’t – and what should have been thrown out 10 years ago."
