    Worst Experience of my Career

    Pros

    The benefits were decent. And there were fun things to do to waste time -- pool table, etc. Neat building.

    Cons

    I worked at Monster for a few years and I can honestly say that I did not do anything. I was not the only one -- no one ever took ownership for their responsibilities (likely because they didn't do anything either). Monster could easily get rid of half of its employees and function just fine.

    Also, decisions were always made without involving the main players. If a Marketing decision were made, no doubt no one from Marketing was involved.

    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
