    I worked at CareerBuilder full-time

    Pros

    co-workers, valuable product offerings-ahead of competition, constant innovation, promote from within, good benefits

    Cons

    unrealistic expectations, stress-job is in jeopardy every day, difficult systems, confusing comp plan, lot of administrative work, moral decreased significantly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    provide positive feedback on strengths and successes don't only point out employees areas of weakness. People are discouraged and feel like failures regardless of effort being put forth. Ask questions to get feedback of employees happiness to help create a more realistic and positive environment. High turnover should be a sign that expectations are not realistic and employees are not set up to succeed. Moral could be improved with more encouragement

    Current Employee - Account Executive in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at CareerBuilder full-time (more than an 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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
