I worked at Monster Inc full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

I honed the skills necessary to navigate and manage relationships with very strong-minded, adversarial, aggressive colleagues.
The company's culture (inadvertently) fosters tight-knit, supportive groups within individual departments; many of my closest, meaningful friendships are with people I met while with the company.
Great legacy brand, looks good on a resume.

Cons

Sales & Marketing vs. Operations - classic corporate power struggle, magnified to the extreme here.
Poor communication about company goals and initiatives from senior and executive management.
No profit/loss accountability to a board of directors or any shareholders as the CEO is the sole owner.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Introduce at least some transparency internally around company initiatives and goals to keep line employees and lower & middle management engaged.

    I have been working at Monster Inc full-time

    Pros

    -genuinely nice and helpful co-workers
    -decent products
    -flexible hours

    Cons

    -NOEL LEE
    -unorganize
    -no merit raise, bonus is a joke but don't worry, if you work hard enough, Noel will get a new (few hundred thousands $) car and make sure to rub it in

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Gently ask Noel to step down as CEO. He needs to focus in the product development process and not over extending his public appearances.
    -Respect people's personal time. Promote work/life balance
    -Show Noel glassdoor reviews

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
