    I worked at Centro full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing leadership, amazing benefits, collaborative environment, amazing "peeps"

    Cons

    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 :)

    Pros

    It's clear that the company, as a whole, makes an effort to invest in their employees. My experience won't be the same as everyone else's, as I lucked out with an incredible manager.

    Cons

    Nothing noteworthy here - a lot of the hires can be quite young, so there's a certain amount of immaturity/communication challenges that come along with the territory. This isn't something you can necessarily escape from from a lot of companies so you might as well get used to it!

    Advice to Management

    No advice - just, thank you.

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

    Pros

    I left the company over four years ago and I still have a great connection with many of them. The CEO has gone to great lengths to keep a strong culture of inclusion when hiring. This company is definitely fast paced with lots of change, but lots of perks too. Consistently voted 'Best Place to Work', it has all the bells and whistles of a proper millennial start up.

    Cons

    There are some silos here. Growth is only for the hungry. If you don't push really hard or have a sponsor, it can be difficult to climb the ladder. Fraternization is also a concern in regards to upper management and special treatment. That may have changed, but it USED to be an issue.

    Advice to Management

    Standard growing pains of a wildly successful company; once you get big enough, being the boss isn't 'fun' it's work. Also, showing loyalty towards those who strive to embody your values and not just to pad your bottom line.

    Pros

    Fantastic people, diverse client relationships, and diversified product offerings.

    Cons

    Big vision, things can take longer to come to fruition than they do at smaller point solution companies.

    Advice to Management

    Double down on your tech- clients are ready to bring platforms in house and you've hit the market with your differentiated platform at the right time.

    Pros

    This is a company that truly cares about people and wants the best culture. The work can also be exciting with new technologies and new clients. There is growth opportunity for hard working people. I've seen people grow their careers at Centro.

    Cons

    Tolerates poor performance with some employees longer than necessary.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating and over communicating the company vision and mission. Keep pushing to be the best place to work in the industry.

    Centro still has very good benefits

    There is no stability on the executive level. How does a software company not have a head of technology?
