I have been working at Monster Worldwide full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

The best part is you get to work from where ever you feel like it ie.. Home, Starbucks, at the beach wherever your heart desires. Or don't work at all one day and no body cares or knows what you're doing. Calling in sick or for vacation not necessary either. As long as your showing numbers, that's all this company cares about. Benefits used to be fantastic with just a $500 deductible for $330 a month family plan but now it's $4000 deductible.

Cons

Extremely high quotas, management is never available when needed. Biggest problem with this company is they require things of you but never ever follow through with it. They create products to compete with companies when there's no completion in the first place. Apples and oranges are fruit but nothing alike. They create technology products and expect non-techie sales people to sell it. They offer incentives to sell certain products because they know those products are tough to sell. Plus they bought Hotjobs a few years back when HJ was going down hill. So they invest in a company that wasn't making any money and is not helping to make money. Not to mention this company is up for sale now. They have huge social media competitors and they have no idea how to compete. They're job postings don't work and they make clients spend more money in other products to make job postings work better.

Advice to Management

Be around more for your team. Live a day in your sales team shoes.

    Pros

    Great people and atmosphere. Compensation is well above average for similar positions at other companies. Product offerings are evolving to stay ahead of the competition. Great outlook!

    Cons

    I do believe there are people in management positions that have no business being there. Politics played a role in their appointment to those positions.


  2. Great training and great people...just a fair amount of politics.

    Pros

    Great training provided by leadership to make sure that we were successful in managing and selling. Good work environment and enjoyed most of the people.

    Cons

    Fairly political organization with an aging product mix that was limited and not very progressive in keeping with the new technology or offerings.
