Great Pay, great stress if you're in sales

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Monster Worldwide

Pros

Industry leading pay. Work from home. Brand recognition. Perks - Laptop, iPhone, company credit card, mobile hot spot, free swag, generous milage reimbursement

Cons

If you're in sales, quota can be very difficult to make, most don't make it. Large product offering however hard to sell anything other than Search/Post. 90% of companies have used Monster at some point making it a hard sell. Constantly berated on your pipeline. Prospective customers are often false leads. Don't get quarterly quota until half way into quarter. Slim chance of becoming a manager if you start in sales. Would take many many years. Mainly hire external. Not growing, all hires are backfills.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management is actually very good

    Went downhill fast after founder and early executives left. Used to be fun, now it is just a factory.

    Pros

    Young telesales group that was competitive In a good way amongst themselves.

    Good benefits, free soda, and they bring in lunch at end of months and quarters.

    Cons

    New c-level managers suck. A bunch of retreads from Motorola. No industry experience.

    Constantly messed with territories and quotas. No consistency. High pressure and if you get the wrong manager, you will want to quit.

    Totally missed on strategy for mobile for years. That is why linked in and indeed are killing them.

     Stopped innovating and was ok with being the big bully for market share.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue and either acquire an innovative competitor or sell to a bigger firm with resources to innovate. You are moving toward irrelevance.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
