    I worked at Criteo full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Good perks: salary, lunch card, massage, holidays, the view... - Great team mates to work with; good talents (even if less and less over the years) It's easy to have fun every day thanks to your colleagues! - No micro-management - if you are senior enough - Trainings and personal development - Good chances to develop your knowledge in the Adtech industry - International environment - The right place to... develop yourself if you have good energy - Healthy work-life balance - Gender equality (yes, that is something Criteo is really good at!)

    Cons

    - Middle Management can vary from one team to another. Some are very nice to work with, others make employees leave the company. They are the major part. People Experience are aware of it, through the Managers survey etc. nevertheless no concrete action taken, neither notes taken during the final interview. It makes me wonder if this is something taken seriously... - They expect you to overachieve with less... capacity over the years. The new motto seems to be: do more with less. When you have a large client portfolio, and one thing goes wrong, Team Leads don't understand you don't deliver the same Top Service they deliver in Large Customers when having 10x more clients. Unless you work 10x times more, it's technically impossible. Expectations from Account Strategists should be clearer and risks should be evaluated by managers before reducing resources, thus before blaiming commercial teams. - Politics are high, I guess that's what you should expect when joining a big company. Something you need to consider before signing.

    Advice to Management

    - Keep the right Senior employees, because you can't expect the same job quality from juniors once Seniors will all be gone... - Don't promote internally if no one is good enough for the job (especially for TLs) - Listen more to your current employees (instead of only reading Exemployees like me on Glassdoor). In 3+ years I didn't feel at all my feedback had an impact.

    I have been working at Criteo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Beautiful offices, very international environment, highly cooperative mindset, and new CEO that might change things for good. Competitive salaries.

    Cons

    Completely unclear roles and responsibilities, with multiple organisational changes decided with absolutely no thinking about the consequences, and no link to strategy (whatever the strategy is). Very disappointed with the lack of vision, the huge amount of politics and ego involved, and the bad execution of any kind of innovation whatsoever - pretty inconvenient for a tech company!
