I worked at Monster Worldwide

Pros

Nice office. Well known company. I really can't think of anything else that would be consider a pro to work there.

Cons

Did not like the management, the pay, or the product offering. Everyone with talent left to work for Linkedin, now they have a clause for new employees that they can't leave to work at Linkedin.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would have sales managers manage and sell. Its a waste to have sales managers spend all their time micromanaging.

    I worked at Monster Worldwide

    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.
