    Pros

    Amazing culture if you are young and love to have fun at work and happy hour.

    Cons

    Depending on your vertical sales can be a vary in difficulty. This organization has very high turnover. They do not invest time in growing their employees, as soon as a person falls behind in sales goals (1-3 months) they are fired.

    Advice to Management

    i saw entire teams turnover in my brief time at CareerBuilder. Upper management should try to cultivate an environment of encouragement and growth that allows reps to improve before they are canned. This high turnover also leads to dissatisfied clients as their reps change multiple times a year.

    Pros

    Light atmosphere where you can jump on different projects.
    Young environment - average age of employees is 28.
    Big company name to start your career.

    Cons

    Micromanagers.
    Tons of organizational change.
    Good old boys mentality with upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Step away from your fraternity brother style of management. HR is a complete joke and would really rather overlook complaints then to take them head on. The company needs to compensate people for the work they do. There is no reason as to why someone would need carry the workload of 4 people and be paid the same wages as a low performing worker. For the hard workers know that there is a complete off balance to the work/life balance. Rather than giving alcohol and parties to your employees to cover up the fact that you underpay employees, management should rather focus on compensating people accordingly. Being that the company is in the human capital management business and has the tools needed to see what average pay is per position, why do they continue to underpay employees?

    Pros

    The company has great benefits and fun people to work with. I have learned a ton and wouldn't change the time I have had here. The atmosphere is usually pretty casual. Flexible work schedules.

    Cons

    Some of the processes are changing right now (and are always changing) and everything is a mess and people are overworked. The pay isn't what it should be, some of the people are cliquey, communication isn't great. There is usually quick turnover or the opposite - people who have been there forever and can't seem to get out.
