    Former Employee - Software Engineer II in Norcross, GA

    I worked at CareerBuilder full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I learned what it means to be a good software engineer and what it means to work with extremely sharp product dev and project management teams. Lots of other companies throw around agile/lean development and lack leadership -- CareerBuilder is not one of them. Great company culture in the Norcross office. You'll have fun on the Lower Level.

    Senior leadership are pretty cool people despite coming from elite educational backgrounds.

    Cons

    The compensation package is generous (PTO, Tuition Reimbursement, Profit Sharing, etc.) but I couldn't justify the pay when metro Atlanta companies were throwing 6 figures at me.

    Change management and clear communication were issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None-- I've been gone almost 3 years. I'm sure things are different, but this review is just how I felt at the time.

    I have been working at CareerBuilder as a contractor (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Careerbuilder offers exceptional opportunities for consulting or contracting, learning up-to-date technology and a steady workload. A majority of on-site staff are amazing people and always friendly or helpful. Communication is simple and timely.

    Cons

    As soon as Managers make improvements in operations or pay, they get a couple of new ones and start back to square one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep talented department managers when processes are high functioning and profitable!

  9. Great place to start, they'll get you a lot of experience but you need to know when to move on if you're not in sales

    I worked at CareerBuilder full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people, great benefits, amazing tuition reimbursement program! Lot's of opportunity for training and learning new skills but not necessarily a ton of room for advancement if you aren't in sales. However, they do provide some great opportunities to move roles within the company. Just not necessarily up. They are also great at the day being done at 5 - there is no extreme expectation to work long hours. But if you have things to get done, do them!

    Cons

    Very low pay if you're not in sales, room to move around but it's hard to move up. They also work really hard to pump people up and get them excited - but very little change actually occurs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better compensation and less lip-service
