    I have been working at Monster Worldwide full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great company with solutions that actually work. Seeing a shift that we have finally bottomed out and are growing our revenue and market share. Monster has made some investments to make itself a diverse solution provider in the HR and Talent Acquisition space. If a company is hiring, looking to improve it's brand, needs to improve their HR processes, or simply wants to outsource their recruitment efforts, Monster can do it all and do it well.

    Cons

    Monster hasn't had any real sales incentives in 2015...this is due to going through the transition, but in 2014 we had some quarterly spiffs that weren't all that great, but did help give a decent lift in commissions. There haven't been any company paid trip awards in years and I think they are looking at bringing this back as we are getting back on the right track, but we will see. The company is also getting a little too involved in micro management which is never the solution. There are those managers who protect their reps from it as much as possible, but there is a lot of redundancies in how we have to report our information and numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to awarding the sales reps more. Reduce redundancies in reporting. Invest more in sales (training, awards, kickoffs)...likely can expect to see this more in 2016 so I hope it's true. Managers need to lead more and manage less...dont worry about KPI's...worry about maximizing sales and not forcing us to get the customer to close just to we have the revenue booked.
