I have been working at Monster Worldwide

Pros

Good benefits. Nice view from the 5th floor in Maynard.

Cons

Strange culture of consistent pressure and time crunch where a lot of things go overlooked and unaddressed which fire back resulting into even more pressure and more mistakes. Do not expect things to be always fair and reasonable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The claim of being a people friendly place to work should be not just on paper. The culture of intimidation should yield to the culture of inspiration.

    Pros

    They are few and far between, but there are some talented, ethical professionals working for the company. If you are beginning a career in online media it might be a good place to start.

    Cons

    Bloated with unnecessary management roles and pervasive politics. The core-values are just a pretty picture on the lunch room wall. Widespread poaching of accounts by other reps of questional moral fiber. Manipulation of leads and account "books" by regional sales managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are a lot of holes in that sinking ship. You may be better served to plug them up with some of your unnecessary roles and return to your entrepreneurial roots or the continued market share loss to the likes of Craigslist and Twitter will help make that decision for you.

    Pros

    It is a great company if you are a college student needing flexibility. .

    Cons

    No long term career growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to your roots. Get back the start-up atmosphere that was present before being purchased by the corporate Monster. This is why they are not thriving as they were in the late 90 and early 2k's. At one time they encouraged ideas and did much for their young bright employees. Now Monster underminds their creativity and simply keeps them to lock up the college market and make upsells to Monster.com.
