    I have been working at CareerBuilder full-time

    Pros

    Fun people, good benefits (generous health benefits, generous PTO policy, quick 401(k) match program, educational reimbursement), good focus on work-life balance

    Cons

    The boys' club environment results in promotion of people who are horrible managers and allows bad behavior to continue without any consequences. There is no appreciation for strong contributors who are not part of this inner circle. Also, extremely inappropriate behavior by high level management is tolerated and part of the culture.

    Management's philosophy is to move forward and ask questions later; this reactive environment can be very frustrating for some.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Conduct skip-level meetings with members of your organization. Take the initiative to understand what's really going on at the company. Read the exit interviews completed by former employees. Establish policies about appropriate behavior and train managers and HR personnel on how to handle issues.

    I have been working at CareerBuilder full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    CareerBuilder can be a good place to start your career. They hire on the low end of the pay scale and specifically target those coming straight out of college. They have a high tolerance for error in their application and job backend.

    Cons

    Their product development process right now is broken. The actual product names and goals between their product development department and their technology department don't line up. The product and software direction between international and the US do not agree because people report to different areas of the business. There is hardly any accountability at all. They repeatedly have shown a lack of interest in monitoring their own backend systems for error or their KPIs for major losses.
