    I worked at Monster Energy full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The Monster Energy Company is an amazing company to work for because it is the leader in an industry that is young and still developing. The energy drink industry quickly became oversaturated with competition due to relatively low barriers to entry, but because Monster established itself early on in the introduction of the energy drink industry, Monster has continued to grow and expand sales since it's inception.

    Cons

    Depending on what department you work in, some people may find themselves in a situation where there is almost no oversight because everybody has entirely too much they are responsible for. Because the company has continued to grow at such an extraordinary rate, Monster has had difficulty keeping up with hiring enough employees to support such growth, and as a result, many of its current employees become stretched too thin.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish an infrastructure for training all entry-level sales positions and don't be afraid to hire an increasing number of employees to support your growth. As long as sales continue to grow, the added overhead of hiring more people will yield even greater profits if done correctly.

    Pros

    Good pay and a great way to connect and network with people within the industry. They even provided a vehicle for interns to drive which was cool.

    Cons

    Managers promised full-time position only to change their minds last-minute and offer an out-of-state position.

    Current Employee - Trade Development Manager in Sacramento, CA

    I have been working at Monster Energy full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company is a great, but just like all corporate companies, They really don't care about the foot soldier TDM/FSR.
    These are the individuals that are executing all programs and sales.

    Cons

    Lack of promotion, No stocks options unless you know someone. They have Regional Managers and TDM/FSR that have been with the company since the beginning, and have no options. Disgraceful

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please sit down and recognize the people who are making the difference in the company, Start with the TDM/FSR who are the ones meeting the retailer, executing your cheesy programs, and get their inputs in regards to what works in the trade. Develop a relationship with them and make them part of the family.
