Disappointing - no clear direction or strategy from upper management

I worked at Monster Worldwide

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.
