    I worked at CareerBuilder full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Double-Edged company culture, positive in the sense that communication is relatively transparent and there is something of an emphasis on work being enjoyable. - Laid-Back workload in so far as one is able to manage expectations. - Close to a lot of residential areas. - Smart/entertaining co-workers. - They will finance your educational goals and work with you on time.

    Cons

    - The culture may seem over-rated for some who would rather advance their careers or earn more. - Failure to manage expectations means that the company will become highly dependent on your being in call to put out fires.

    Advice to Management

    Regarding your software engineers -- those who have invested a lot of time mastering the code base for a profitable product should be compensated competitively or else you will loose them. It is acceptable for new engineers and contractors to be paid relatively less than the labor market averages until they have developed specialized company knowledge. Loosing these experts increases the potential time and cost of implementing new features and bug fixes for your project exponentially. Lack of access to these knowledgeable employees also means there will be a lot of friction in hiring/training as new engineers are essentially told to 'figure it out' without any meaningful guidance.
