Former Employee - Inside Sales in Maynard, MA

I worked at Monster Worldwide full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

The people on the front lines are amazing. I met some of my greatest friends there.
Good benefits.
Competitive salary.

Cons

Senior management has lost focus - more concerened with tracking metrics then actual selling.
Advancement in Maynard office is awful. Many times outside people are brought in over viable inside candidates.
Top talent are in an exodus.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get back to being a sales and marketing company.
Create a culture within the company besides the fear culture.

Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Monster Worldwide full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay (both salary and commission).
    Fun Culture - depending on your sales manager

    Cons

    Management thinks Monster is still #1. People arent using Monster like they used to and people are not as impressed with the name brand anymore. The name doesnt sell itself anymore. Its a dying industry. They are behind the 8-ball.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People over profits and you would be surprised how performance can take off.

    I have been working at Monster Worldwide (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great compensation, flexibility and opportunity to exposure

    Cons

    No transparity with senior management. "We - they" enviornment. Not a lot of room for advancement. Products are not keeping up with the competition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not a lot of respect for Senior Management right now. No clear strategic path. Management needs to listen employees.
