    Pros

    Great company culture. You get to work with some really smart and innovative people. I love that the have the new business culture mentality. You work hard, you play hard, and you get recognition for your accomplishments. Most people from what I see come and don't leave unless they get a ridiculous offer (like I did). They are also doing some amazing initiatives around hiring and training veterans to learn technology which puts them head and shoulders above most companies.

    Cons

    I wish they had more jobs available for entry level IT

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    The people are CareerBuilder are the #1 reason why I loved working there... the culture is spectacular. There were a lot of ways I could expand/grow my own career - and there really are endless opportunities if you're motivated. Also the Diamond Club trip in Mexico was amazing!

    Cons

    Nothing major - there are some growing pains though with recently switching the focus to more of an HR platform vs. job postings/advertising.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up what you're doing with lots of training opportunities, recognition, open communication about company direction, etc.

    Pros

    Fun, innovative workplace. Food all the time!

    Cons

    Some mid-level managers have been in place for too long and it's time for them to move on. Some of those managers no longer fit the culture. It's aggravating to work with managers stuck in their own ways. Also, the pay is lower than most other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Employees leave managers...not the company itself most of the time. Get some new blood in more areas.

    Pros

    I learned a lot. There were some exciting projects.

    Cons

    Pay is miserably below market value. First job I was offered after leaving company was 25% higher salary. Lots of people have told me the same story.

    Advice to Management

    Put your money where your mouth is.
