    No direction, changing direction, communication vacuum between management and workers about future direction of company and lack of true commitment from senior managers beyond what's expected to appear professional.

    Love it or leave it. Get involved. Be there.

    Could have been a blue chip company but didn't innovate quickly enough

    Pros

    There are some great people who work at Monster: bright, motivated, and entrepreneurial, but they are leaving because they lack confidence in Monster's senior management.

    Cons

    Slow, difficult to effect change. This is a company that ruled online recruitment, and instead of constantly innovating, they focused too much on clients and not enough on users. Sure enough, the users aren't going there anymore and now CB, Hot Jobs and others are providing a much better user experience. It's been disappointing to watch the company squander away their brand equity and market dominance. Just look at the stock price over the last couple of years.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better, build a better product for users
