Pros

* Relaxed atmosphere, but people get their work done
* Flexible work schedule available depending on team/dept.
* Ability to work with teams of multiple disciplines within the company
* Decent support for continued learning, exploring careers within Monster

Cons

* Unclear career path for many job functions. Promotions are often self-invented positions or a move to different job function.
* Sales culture. Non-sales roles definitely take a backseat in rewards and compensation.
* Poor retention in some areas. Veteran employees often find themselves drastically underpaid for same role as new hires.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recommend salary review after 3-4 years to retain best talent.
Recommend addition to the review process -- supervisors to be rated by those they manage.

    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.
