I have been working at CareerBuilder full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The company lets you run your business how you like. There is no constant micro management. Pick your goals and go out and attain then. It's a culture that promotes success with disciplined freedom. They provide excellent training and benefits. Company events at Wrigley, museums, and outdoor parks are very entertaining.

Cons

It's a very competitive and fast paced environment. Success could be dependent upon territory or accounts. Pay is industry average, very rarely above.

Advice to Management

Focus more on the quality versus revenue

    I have been working at CareerBuilder full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - very energetic company - invests in motivating employees for both work and life - Great place to start your career immediately out of college to develop successful sales habits

    Cons

    - very poltical boys club at the top tiers of sales with questionable professionalism - very activity-metric oriented vs. outcome based sales managment culture. You will be continually asked "How many dials did you make today". - "boys will be boys" behavior at sales VP levels. Managment via intimidation is a regular tactic.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO is a very intelligent and insightful leader. The problem stems more in his circle of generals that run the revenue focused areas of the company.

    Pros

    Hands down one of the BEST sales training organizations around Benefits are top notch and bonus compensation is very generous. (work hard and stay over 100%) You are rewarded for hard work- Company trips are second to none, you get to take a plus one and they spoil the hell out of you. Senior Management is solid

    Cons

    Low base pay (made up for with good commissions) but still too low Account/ Rep movement- Accounts are shuffled and leadership changes often. One of Careerbuilder's core values is agility but there is too much movement within the organization. Quota demands- quota is fair but if a rep has an absolutely stellar year you are punished by an exorbitantly high quota the next. This is a main cause for movement, the only way to stay with the company (and not get fired) is to get promoted, move into management, or operations. Management- pick your manager wisely! This can make or break you here...

    Advice to Management

    Less movement among accounts and management would be nice but not necessary. Quotas need to be assessed to make sure good reps aren't turning over or changing positions to stay afloat. Overall extremely happy, senior leadership is truly phenomenal at this company.
