Why Centro Continues to be a Great Place to Work


Centro has always focused on the wellness of the people who work here. The energy and resources we apply to our team directly affects the energy our team puts towards Centro’s customer, partners and peers. This is a key reason we’ve been able to grow year-over-year and maintain business momentum.

Investing in employees has been part of Centro’s essence since the onset of our company. And after celebrating our 19th anniversary in October this year, it is clear that Centro’s approach towards employees is also manifesting into gratitude they are showing outwardly for the company.

Most recently, Centro was named by Fortune as the No. 52 Best Medium Workplace nationally in 2020. In the month before that, Fortune named Centro the No. 15 Best Small & Medium Workplace for Women. The lists are part of a series of rankings by Fortune and Great Place to Work, a people analytics and company culture research firm, and are based on employee feedback. Earlier in the year, Great Place to Work named Centro the No. 4 Best Small & Medium Workplace in Chicago.

Despite the numerous business challenges we faced in 2020, Centro was bestowed by other organizations with recognition for our workplace. These include:

  • Denver Post’s No. 21 Best Small Companies to Work for in Colorado
  • Crain’s Chicago Business’ No. 25 Best Places to Work
  • Built in Chicago’s No. 27 Bet Places to Work
  • Dallas Morning News’ Top 150 Places to Work
  • Glassdoor rating of 4 out of 5 stars, based on employee reviews

Centro is prescriptive in supplying our team with resources they need to grow and develop. As we look towards 2021 to envision the future Centro ‘workplace,’ we recognize that the many factors that contributed to positive employee experiences (team engagement, benefits, office perks, etc.) are changing. Continuing to build energy and enthusiasm from our team will require imaginative adjustments while we all stay physically apart. Our challenge is to deliver on the new requirements that professionals are calling for.

Nevertheless, Centro is more than workplace awards and recognition—there are humans behind our technology, and we wouldn’t be able to function without them. We offer flexible digital advertising solutions built on our technology, Basis, that unifies planning and buying across programmatic, direct, search, CTV and social.
