    Pros

    Freedom to pick the tools and languages most appropriate to your problems. Lots of great learning opportunities. Relaxed work environrment. Leadership really listens to employees at all levels and makes an effort to improve. Quarterly bonuses are nice. 1/2 day fridays during July and August, and a pretty good PTO policy

    Cons

    Pay is low compared to the tech sector in Atlanta, and they lose lots of experienced engineers to to bigger salaries somewhere local. Not much effort made to hold onto experienced engineers can make it hard to build reliable scalable softare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out how to hold onto experienced engineers, a software company can't run on software only built by people fresh out of school

    Pros

    Started working a little less than a year ago right out of college. Very laid back culture. Upper management doesn't put any stress on employees and really value our input on decisions.
    Upper management also really encourages learning. Whether it be practical things used in the work place or taking classes at nearby university.

    Cons

    Although the living costs of living in Georgia are much lower than other cities with a lot of technology, (SF, NY, CHI). The pay still seems to be less aggressive than other technology companies.

    Pros

    There are a lot of positive things about working at CareerBuilder. Here are just a few...
    1) Culture - The culture is amazing and could be compared to that of a Google or Facebook. It really is fun.
    2) The benefits and perks are very good.
    3) Schedule - if you are in IT, your schedule is most likely very flexible. Get your job done and you have a lot of time to enjoy yourself.

    Cons

    The biggest issue for CareerBuilder is the pay for IT related positions. The company still heavily pushes itself as a 'Sales' type of organization, even though they are pushing software advances very hard. This means that salaries for IT related jobs are below normal.

    The second issue is that certain teams are prided more than others. If you are on the right team, you will get recognition constantly; however, if you are not it will seem as if you make little impact, when in fact you do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat everyone equally. Operational teams, UX engineers, Search engineers...they all deserve the same acknowledgement.

    Review pay. Keeping top talent should really be a top priority!

    Pros

    Great Company, have learned so much, great CEO, wonderful co-workers.

    Cons

    Internal teams don't understand what affects our clients. Products are created and rolled out to quickly and are unsuccessful. Reps then look bad and take the blame for them. it makes iIt hard for sales reps to "sell" when we can't believe in the product offerings and are unsure if they will work.

    Pros

    Excellent sales boot camp; if you are willing to learn and check your attitude at the door; this is the place for you. Tons of opportunity, tons of money to be made, and the perks can't be beat! Annual Sales Trips + Happy Hours & Work Events are commonplace!

    Cons

    The culture has changed as the company has grown up... less like a family more like a franchise.

    I worked at CareerBuilder full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great training, and money making opportunities. It was my first sales job and I wasn't sure what to expect. They trained me very well and I had opportunity to attend some great trips and team building activities and was able to make a substantial amount of money my first year.

    Cons

    Management styles create a tough atmosphere of micromanagement with no sense of what the actual viable sales opportunities exist. I was well over my quota but I wasn't making the dials that they wanted me to. Meanwhile activity faking is rampant within the company justifying their very high standards of work. I understand why they work that way, but that doesn't make it a good company to work for. Most people I know don't last a year in this job. Or they are very dumb and don't know better.
