I worked at CareerBuilder

Pros

*Excellent corporate culture. I loved my managers, co-workers, and coming to the office
* Very flexible with scheduling, work/life balance
* Management team empowered us to make our own decisions
* Learned a lot about the industry in a short time...great professional development
* Management Team is quite competent
*Competitive benefits

Cons

* The salary for non-sales people sucks across the board. Many on our operations team started as contractors, so they got the horrible CB salary, and none of the benefits.
* Sometimes a bit of a "high school" like atmosphere, "who you know" is very important
* Sometimes a lack of communication between sales and operations, leading to project confusion.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase the pay for your operations and delivery staff. You lose an awful lot of very good talent each year because other firms are willing to pay what they are worth.

    Pros

    Leadership is great, the communication is very active and clear and the company seems to offer a lot of stuff to try and make its employees happy.

    Cons

    CareerBuilder pays well below market rate for many positions outside of sales. It's a great company but the low pay makes it diffcult to stay for many years. Some of the best employees leave because of low pay increases and low starting salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing would make CareerBuilder the best of the best like increasing starting salaries. this would keep the best employees from drifting to other companies after a couple of years.
