Great place to start your career

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

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 Senior ManagementIncrease 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
