Pros

The IT dept at Careerbuilder is hands down one of the best work environments in the Atlanta area. They still have that 90's internet start-up feel/atmosphere despite their ever growing size. The benefits are impressive for a SMB like Careerbuilder.

Cons

No cons really. No place is perfect and they can and do experience growing pains, but that's better than 'shrinking' pains.

    Pros

    Fast moving company
    Opportunity for advancement if you're hitting your #'s
    Fun culture
    Amazing annual sales meeting with awesome guest speakers
    Great company to learn how to sell and hone solution-based selling strategies
    Good total compensation (but fairly low base pay)
    Great President's Club trips

    Cons

    Success is largely determined by manager and account book
    There are some inexperienced and undeserving sales managers
    Senior leadership is misguided and sometimes downright harsh to their reps
    Quotas can quickly become unreachable for enterprise reps early in the year
    Territories are not carved out correctly, lots of misplaced accounts across the country and within sales units

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Level the playing field for reps
    Stop rewarding managers with average results from their sales teams (2 reps out of 9 making trip is not deserving of a free trip to Hawaii)
    Even up account books (there are huge discrepancies in billing revenue in assigned account bases)

    Pros

    1. Relaxed atmosphere - very much adheres to the "Disciplined Freedom" motto
    2. Lots of room for advancement - the company provides a very good career mapping program
    3. Fantastic benefits
    4. The company is excitedly open to new ideas from all levels of employees - they even host multiple contests per year around this
    5. The company really rewards hard work, innovation, and passion
    6. Best of all - there's always catered food for some event!

    Cons

    The compensation seems to be slightly lower than industry averages

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Turnover seems to be a little high, maybe work on compensation to keep the great people we have
