Great Company

Client Advocate (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I have been working at CareerBuilder full-time for less than a year

ProsThere are way too many pro's about this company to list, but a few of the majors:
Great work environment, benefits are absolutely amazing, exponential room for growth, management is completely open door and encouraging!

ConsThe only complaint I would have is that the base salaries are lower than industry standards, but the bonus structure and benefits make up for it!

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue leading and building the way you are. Great company values!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great for learning and working with new technology

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Norcross, GA

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

ProsGreat environment and great people. I'm faced with challenging new problems everyday so it's impossible for burnout. Great benefits with tons of learning opportunities. They really care about employees growing.

ConsCompensation is the only real complaint. It is below average and causes a lot great engineers to move to different companies.

Great place to be a Software Engineer

Engineering Lead (Current Employee)
Norcross, GA

I have been working at CareerBuilder full-time for more than 5 years

ProsFun environment with plenty of opportunities to do new things and learn new technologies. Great benefits. Employees have freedom in the details of their work, and employee opinions are valued. There are contests and rewards for good ideas at all levels. They typically promote from within.

ConsMy salary is a bit low for my level of experience. Some teams get more recognition, but I guess that comes with more visibility (good and bad).

Layers of a Bad Onion

Account Executive (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I have been working at CareerBuilder full-time for more than 3 years

Pros- Young workforce with great health benefits
- Great entry level sales job with nice training

Cons- Not a place for mature people who want an actual sales career
- A compensation plan and base salary on all levels of sales and non-sales roles that are below its competitors
- Micro Managed environment with EVERY aspect of your job watched......YES they listen to all calls, even the ones to your family
- Sell what they want and not what the client needs

Advice to Senior Management- Walking around bothering other reps who are trying to sell is not helping...if you want to help create and get your hands dirty by helping veteran and newbies blue print a company with actual talk tracks.

- Feel free to start a new call center in a new city as Atlanta, Phoenix and Chicago are now tapped out on talent that actually wants to work for you.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Fruitful and fun internship experience at CB.

User Experience Design (Former Employee)
Norcross, GA

I worked at CareerBuilder as an intern for less than a year

ProsCB has a lot of resources for you to learn and grow and we had a lot of fun time such as lunch Fridays and summer half Fridays.

ConsI only wish the team could grow bigger and recruit more people and would provide sponsorship for international students.

There are no people here who hate their Job.

Intern (Current Employee)
Norcross, GA

I have been working at CareerBuilder part-time for less than a year

Pros-very open/flexible environment
-you can drink beer at work
-management isn't smothering
     -Agile process works as intended
-there are Nerf wars
-very helpful and nice coworkers
     - people are very open to helping with current projects, whether that involves just lending an ear or review already written code.
-walking distance to a variety of restaurants
-across the street from the Peachtree Growler Co.

Cons-difficult to loose weight with all of the provided food
-sometimes difficult to concentrate
     -There are Nerf wars
-There are a ton of meetings
     -many of these seem to be "pat-your-self-on-the-back" meetings
-you have to swipe a key-card to enter the restroom (really minor annoyance)

I really had to think of cons for this job. There are some places where you walk in and you see many people that you can tell hate there job. There aren't any of those people at careerbuilder

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up. Management isn't smothering and is more than willing to answer any questions you may have.

Lots of opportunity for growth and learning.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Norcross, GA

I have been working at CareerBuilder full-time

ProsCareerBuilder provides a lot of freedom and support to develop your skills and abilities. There is always an interesting problem to work on and the people you work with are smart and energetic.

They have paid for my master's degree, sent me through their own leadership development curriculum which is very good for a company designed program, and they sent me on fun trips around the world for both work and play.

ConsIn the past it has felt like the company has been too scared to take some risks and work on things that didn't seem to provide immediate business value. We pride ourselves on being a lean shop, but the way we were using lean led us to do a bunch of little things with little impact. Lean should be used to do big things in little steps. I believe this is changing.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be ADD. The recent tech and product re-rog is a good one. Continue to focus obsessively on the users: both corporate and consumer. The sales will follow if we have the best product around.

Overall, a Great Company

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Norcross, GA

I have been working at CareerBuilder full-time for less than a year

Pros- Great benefits
- Can be a fun work environment, if you are in the right group/clique (See the cons section)
- Telecommute options, when they are available, are extremely helpful for someone on a full-time schedule, have children, or are going to school.

Cons- Work groups tend to be cliquish
- Some "promises" and "guarantees" weren't met (this appears to only be an issue for a handful of people an not for everyone in the company)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
