    Mob mentality - not to be confused with management.

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

    Pros

    A very competitive salary locally, and a good benefits package. Variety within the role, and there were opportunities to learn and development.

    Cons

    I have heard of similar stories from offices in London, Glasgow, Prague, and the office in Brno is equally inept and corrupt. There is a distinct lack of leadership and vision, with the continual appointment of under-qualified cronies both harming the company and destroying staff morale.

    Managers, for wont of initiative, resort to harassment and constant criticism as motivation towards arbitrarily set targets.

    The company itself is fragmented, and factionalism prevents anything actually getting done. There is a counter-productive obsession with self-serving vanity projects, detrimental to the organisation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs to go back to basics; rebuild the website from scratch and re-assess middle management positions upwards. Do not dismiss all staff feedback as 'negative' and realise that things have to change if the company is once again to flourish. Too many 'restructurings' (i.e. sacking a number of people and attempting to blame them for the company's poor performance) come and go without any real changes - new people are hired for the same roles three months later without any overhaul of strategy or internal organisation.

    I worked at Monster Worldwide full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The work provided enough challenges and opportunities to learn. The environment of on-line recruitment is an interesting one in which a lot is happening

    Cons

    Uncertain financial state of the company, many rounds of lay-offs, which influenced morale. although I was lucky with the senior and skilled manager of my team, .the general management of the SCC did little to support the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider if such a junior management is ready to lead such a large SSC in uncertain financial time. Make HR policy more than hiring, firing and executing formalities.
