    I worked at Monster Worldwide full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - global environment and mentality
    - leadership training
    - challenging work
    - encourage creativity and new ideas
    - uses the best and current technology
    - strong brand awareness and loyalty among employees
    - fair salary increases, including several unexpected bonuses ($5k)
    - creative atmosphere
    -"white noise" above work spaces provide employees privacy and keeps the general noise level down so you can work without a lot of distraction
    - fun perks like fooseball, pingpong, free beverages and snacks
    - encourages civil responsibility

    Cons

    - some of the departments don't "play well" with others
    - management sometimes makes unreasonable requests at the 11th hour
    - salaried employees often work 50-60 hour weeks, some eating breakfast, lunch and dinner at their desks
    - deadline-driven environment requires "all hands on deck"
    - benefits could be better, more time off, better medical plan options and vacation time
    - not a strong sense of job security - layoffs happen in large batches and without forewarning
    - constant restructuring on both company-wide and department-wide levels
    - in departments with many people doing the same job, new employees brought in sometimes causes resentment, because the new employees come in with a better salary/benefit package than existing employees in the same role and with the same qualifications

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Provide more feedback on a day-to-day basis.
    - Let employees know that they and their work are valued.
    - Help employees feel more job security.
    - Give employees some notice if they are being sourced to another department or position, versus finding out in a large meeting or moments before a large meeting.
    - Provide better benefit packages.
    - Provide better opportunities to be promoted from within.
    - Help employees achieve a better work-life balance.
