Pros

1. Great technical exposure. If you're looking for technical challenges, then yes, you'll love it here!
2. Fast paced organization - pretty aggressive deadlines
3. You'll get parking in the Maynard, MA but great views in Cambridge, MA (near MIT)
4. Co-workers are very motivated and knowledgeable in general.

Cons

1. Processes are not really in place
2. Extremely high initial learning curve.
3. Not much knowledge/information documented properly. This is because of the very fast paced, aggressive schedules and the agile changes. This is problematic.
4. Pay hikes are very meager.
5. Slow promotions

    Pros

    * You can work on some interesting projects.
    * You can work with some intelligent and competent people.
    * You are working for a "known" company. Name recognition is high.

    Cons

    * Non-stop upper management turnover and issues.
    * Nepotism has always been a problem.
    * Its best days are behind it. Does anyone think Monster has a vision anymore?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * I would offer them some, but they wouldn't listen.
    * Ranting at company meetings is not great for morale.
