I was a contractor. Valued, but not highly valued.

    Former Employee - Major Account Executive

    I worked at CareerBuilder full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good salary, great communication between all verticals, great high-level involvement, good benefits, high energy work

    Cons

    Your success/failures are based upon the book of business you are given, onboarding wasn't a good experience from the state I worked in, constant reporting and initiatives

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure the satellite offices get more attention, especially during ramp up for new employees. I feel was left out to dry for the first three months. Unfortunately i wasnt provided mentorship, shadowing, or a successful road to travel on. The company and their offerings are great, constantly evolving, and very relevant to what corporations need.

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

    Pros

    Wonderful people, amazing work-life balance (1/2 day Fridays throughout the summer), access to any form of training, education reimbursement, quarterly team fun days, and quarterly bonuses!

    Cons

    Compensation is not IT-market based in Atlanta. Even with quarterly bonuses you will be looking at $15-$25K less in salary due to the added "perks" mentioned (summer Fridays, team fun days, education reimbursement, etc.).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use compensation to not only show value to your employees but to retain them. A lot of good talent walks out the door due to higher paying jobs elsewhere.
