Pros

Monster Worldwide has a great work live balance. If you're interested in the job search market this is the place to be.

Cons

Maynard is in the middle of nowhere. This isn't a technology company, it is a job search company that uses technology.

Advice to Management

I have no advice to offer.

    Pros

    Good benefits, technology, value of work to people's lives. Still a leading brand on the internet although innovations aren't getting traction they should.

    Cons

    Culture of fear, declining quality of upper management, long slide from hot internet startup spirit to slow, quarterly earnings culture. Constantly switching priorities; most initiatives take many layers of approval going to the top, where they sit for months. Recent new products promising but remains to be seen whether it's too late.

    Advice to Management

    You were brought in to clean up the mess left by a few bad apples at the top. You did a good job cleaning it up but the tight corporate culture, and governing by fear, is driving away the best talent. Ruling by fear means you won't hear the criticism and suggestions you need to pull out of the long dive.

    Unfocused leadership, but great place for a career to stagnate

    Pros

    Great benefits, good work-life balance, friendly atmosphere. Some very smart, talented people, too. And if you are the type who just wants to get by, they offer competitive salaries and are slow to lay off/fire underperformers.

    Cons

    Lots of problems with leadership not understanding the business. In-fighting among management, competition between the divisions. Many among the leadership are clearly working for personal gain and not for the benefit of the business or employees. Slow to get things done. Management is scatterbrained, unclear about priorities, and inefficient about setting things in motion. Very low level of employee morale in the office.

    Advice to Management

    Reward concrete results instead of paying attention to those who like to market themselves and their team. Ignore what people are saying and ask them to prove what they have done.
