    Pros

    The people, the pay (when you do well, after all it is a sales job and if you suck you don't make a lot), my boss, the mission.

    Cons

    There are people that have a very ignorant view of the direction monster is taking. You see it all over this site through negative reviews. Sometimes it is hard to be positive when there are so many negative people with an unrealistic expectation of the job and business in general. The company is adapting to the change in the marketplace faster and more smart than any of the competitors. Yes it would be nice to fail and still get 100% commission or a pat on the back, but that is not how business works. Sales is a very different job than most, yes the company gives you pto, but a true sales person knows that everyday missed in the office is an opportunity and a sale not made. The biggest con about monster is that they allow these negative, spiteful people work there. Monster is a great company and will continue to do great things.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the negative, ignorant, and unsuccessful sales people. They are poisoning the waters.

    Pros

    The company is making a push to be more innovative and it certainly shows. I've been here for over a year now, and everyone I've had the pleasure of working with has been easy to collaborate with. The team I work with has become like family, always helping each other with tasks while also providing guidance wherever needed... and finding time to have fun in between. The workload is challenging and heavy from time to time, but always doable and rewarding. The work-life balance is also good as there's generally flexibility with hours and needing to work remote.

    Cons

    Some people are still stuck in "old" ways, which creates challenges when trying to innovate. Sometimes there is a little disconnect between departments- but it's nothing communication can't fix.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing to innovate.

    Pros

    Great place to work not only because of the atmosphere and flexibility but for the ability to have your voice heard at such a huge company. Having my manager value my opinion on even the smallest things makes me feel a lot more accomplished on a day-to-day basis which then motivates me to work even harder because I know my contributions mean something. The overall culture is something that i see continuously get better since i started and I'm excited to see what the implement next. If you're looking for a place full of collaboration and forward thinking, Monster's the place. There are a lot of exciting and innovative products being rolled out so it's gratifying to be a part of that movement in the industry!

    Cons

    The company is still trying to shape the meaning of the "new Monster" so working out the kinks is a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Although culture has taken a huge turn for the better, since I've arrived, it needs to continue to be top priority as it's truly a motivating factor in the workplace.

    Pros

    It's a relaxed atmosphere, with catered lunches, weekly happy hours, and friendly people. Supportive environment that encourages learning with good pay.

    Cons

    Direct management is lacking. Often didn't feel I was learning much after the first year. Raunchy language used on sales floor.

    Advice to Management

    Create more individual accountability by managing the team more closely. Don't instill an attitude of haughtiness in new hires. Confidence is great, but not when it's unwarranted.

    listen to the people doing the work

    Pros

    I’ve worked for Monster as a Senior Account Manager (IRC) for almost a year, and coming to work here has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

    The innovation is amazing. Every quarter I have exciting new products and solutions to tell my clients about.

    My clients are wonderful, and on the whole, they get great results. They tell me Monster is their vendor of choice and are open to trying new products.

    My coworkers are mature and very bright. If I don’t know how to do something, chances are someone sitting near me does. With people who have worked there over a decade, there is a wealth of knowledge and experience all around me.

    My boss is a nice, genuine person. He is there to remove roadblocks and point me in the right direction.

    We are a real team. I closed a sale at 6 pm on a Friday night. Almost the only people left in the office were managers and they clapped for me. It was a great feeling.

    Oh, and I just was able to bring a friend on board and she likes it a lot too.

    Cons

    The company would greatly benefit from more women in management, and I'm not even pointing at myself here.

     I don’t know what to make of the negative reviews. Maybe things used to be better, but I have looked at many, many similar jobs in the Boston area, and this is by far the sanest company with the best compensation.

    Advice to Management

    I am very lucky that I have a great RSM and Director that care what I think and wish that for all of my colleagues.

    Pros

    It is a true team environment that is fast paced with work/life balance. Additionally I have the opportunity to earn based on performance. I also couldn't ask for a better manager to report to.

    Cons

    Too few to mention. I have really enjoyed my time with the company and love my team. I hope that the new direction continues into 2015 and beyond.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course on innovating new product and services.
