Pros

You need a job and can't find another one.
You want to be a sales person and have never been grinded out from a sales factory machine
You thrive on chaos and misguided leadership.
If you live in central Massachusetts
There are some people who really care about the organization.

Cons

Management changes every six months.
You will be fired on a whim.
There is little honesty and integrity from management.
You should never expect to receive any support, resource3s, or recognition for your work.
You will be treated like a slave especially if you are talented.
If you are a confident professional, working at Monster will drive you to have high insecurity, enormous stress, and question your reasons for being.

    I worked at Monster Worldwide

    Pros

    Great sales culture, driven to high reward for hard work. Monster's culture was work hard, play hard from 1996-2005. Jeff Taylor's departure put a shadow over that, compounded by several (bad) leadership changes 2005-2008.

    Cons

    No long term strategy, no industry experts at the top and no communication from above. They are now on their third CEO in 15 months and instead of a visionary leading the company it's Vito Corleone and his merry Yes Men. People like Steve Pogorzelski leaving have cemented the end of the old Monster and the new Monster (good or bad) is now being birthed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to what worked - Great marketing, great services, great sales staff.

    Pros

    Good opportunities for advancement, the organization is mostly a meritocracy, vacation time is above average if you can find the time to actually use it.

    Cons

    Monster is a big company and it struggles under it's own weight. In a market that's filled with younger, more mobile companies, innovation at Monster is stifled by corporate bureaucracy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Monster is a web 1.0 company struggling in a web 2.0 world. Adapting current best practices and focusing on getting beyond the keyword/zipcode job search would be a step in the right direction. Focusing on user experience and interface would go a long way toward increasing the consumer value proposition.
