Pros

There are way too many pro's about this company to list, but a few of the majors:
Great work environment, benefits are absolutely amazing, exponential room for growth, management is completely open door and encouraging!

Cons

The only complaint I would have is that the base salaries are lower than industry standards, but the bonus structure and benefits make up for it!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue leading and building the way you are. Great company values!

    Pros

    The company culture is by far the best things about working for CareerBuilder. There are a lot of company events/happy hours, half day Fridays in the summer, and TRIP. Trip was one of the best experiences of my life. A 1 week all expenses paid for you and a plus 1 to an exotic location. Everyone is really nice and will do anything they can to help you.

    Cons

    Activity - hitting stupid metrics that do not necessarily result in sales to stay off "plan". Change is the only constant not that this is the worst thing in the world but sometimes changes are not communicated very well

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep evolving to keep up in the market place. Things have changed so much in the 3+ years since I have been here and in a great way!

    Pros

    -- The company, as a whole, treats employees well.
    -- Great domestic travel opportunities to visit customers.
    -- The incentives and perks are ok.
    -- Worked with some fun people.

    Cons

    -- 1st year salary at 100% of quota is about 65-70k.......not the 98K that you are told by the recruiter/management.
    -- CareerBuilder really needs to take a step back and look at their management base, as immaturity runs rampant throughout the middle - senior level sales managers.
    -- If you are not in the CB Clique.... Don't bother. I witnessed mediocre sales reps who sucked up to the Sales Director and move from sales...to management...back to sales, because they "felt" like it and all the while leaving their sales team struggling without leadership.
    -- Training consisted of learning over 100 different products in the matter of a 3 day course that begins on your first day of work.
    -- Ridiculous incremental quotas. You must sell the "Flavor of the Week" as opposed to something that the customer actually wants or needs.
    -- Revolving door for sales reps. Customers definitely don't expect you to be their rep for very long.... And that makes it hard to build trust and a relationship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to lead and take responsibility for your team. Give advice and examples to your sales team to solve problems.... Don't just say: how much, when do they renew, and how much of an up sell?
