Pros

multitasking environment - you won't get bored, convenient location (Tyson's), decent salaries - although they were very stingy last a couple of years on cash bonuses, office space is good if you get an office with a window.

Cons

no recent 401k matching, somewhat disorganized but they have good relationships with clients and work just keeps piling up - although it's all manageable, badly planned and setup office space, especially cubicle areas and inside offices.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

cleanup office space, pay a little more attention to employees (more spot bonuses, whatever other minor perks), don't be too stingy on US workers - you are working for US Government for God's Sake!

    Pros

    Great brand name and some good people

    Cons

    While on one hand Monster executives day they promote an open door policy as well as innovation, this does not actually play out in day-to-day activities. The executives are quick to point blame when something goes wrong, most often at a scapegoat, and not the senior person responsible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do what you say. On one hand executives say ethics is a top priority, but promotions do not go to the best workers, but rather the folks that best kiss butt.

    Pros

    They are a well-known large global company with good benefits but beyond that there is not much good to say about working there.

    Cons

    The management is quite poor; 3 new executive teams in just a few years and the latest seems to be the worst. Job stability is economy-driven. They are difficult to work with as a customer. Constant site issues. Very aggressive sales quotas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ever wonder why Monster is never mentioned when talking about the best companies to work for? Read 'Good To Great' by Jim Collins
