I worked at CareerBuilder

Pros

It was great to be able to say that I worked there. The reputation was great. It was also easy to get to in the Loop.

Cons

It was like a whole bunch of college kids working together in a pressure cooker of sale sales sales. Instead of seeing the skills and talent in people that might be able to do more than they were asked for, they looked down on you if deadlines were not met. Even if the reason for not meeting them was because you discovered that how you were doing it was not going to work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a moment and see it from the level of the person you are speaking to. It is not always the same in the trenches as it is in the management office.

    Pros

    CareerBuilder is a fantastic company that understands the value of its employees. They have phenomenal training, earned advancement in your career path, & the best benefits I have ever seen. The pay is competitive, you will make as much work as you are putting in. The consistently encourage our personal and professional growth. Leadership is always there for help, unlike other organizations where they sit in their ivory towers waiting for you to figure it out or fail. The sales resources are virtually unlimited and the peers in this office are always supportive. I fully enjoy my job, even after all my time here.

    Cons

    The only real downside is the same as every other downside in a sales role...it's sales. There is pressure, expectations, and the occasional unhappy potential client. At least here, there is always support to get you to your numbers.

    Pros

    Great Benefits
    Understanding Management
    Freedom to run your own "business"
    Not micro-managed
    Great Location Downtown near all CTA buses and trains

    Cons

    Pay is not very competitive but even operational (non sales) employees receive quarterly bonuses based on quarterly goals they set with their management as well as how well the company performs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees for their worth. Many people are leaving because they can find jobs at companies nearby with better salaries.
