I worked at Monster Worldwide

Pros

If you can hit outlandish quotas, the pay is stellar
If you were/are field-based, great flexibility
Great opportunities to learn, grow & hone skills

Cons

Honestly the worst, most-incompetent sr. sales managers I've ever worked for
True big brother, rule by fear mentality
Sal Iannuzzi has run this ship into the ground
Sales Managers should remove the word "sales" from their title, because they can't
In the past 24 mos. this company has hemorrhaged some of the best sales talent around, and it shows
Completely irrelevant today, and it's not going to get better

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Watch your back, never know when it'll come around to bite you
To a certain RVP in the East, get your head out of your @$$

    Disappointing - no clear direction or strategy from upper management

    Pros

    Great work/life balance if you are good at drawing a line in the sand
    Decent benefits and time off
    Super friendly people - great co-workers
    Autonomy

    Cons

    No strategy or direction coming from upper management - strategy seems to be try everything and see if it sticks. Unfortunately, most things do not.
    No focus on clear goals for projects
    Little to no iterating on projects - oftentimes leaving projects half finished and available to the public
    Antiquated business model - competitors are beating them badly with no strategy as to how it could be addressed
    Lots of politics and favorites - very much a "boys club"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get involved! Talk to your people - they are really smart and have great ideas. Hands-off laissez-faire management is not a way to run a business or promote career development for your employees.
