Positive Outlook that ended with Disappointment

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at CareerBuilder full-time

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

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

Advice to Senior Managementprovide 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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
