    I worked at Monster Government Solutions as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    It is positive work environment, and busy enough to let you balance you work and personal life. Enough opportunity to learn and grow personally. Good salary, higher then the market

    Cons

    Can be bit complacent at times. Bit orthodox approach towards remote access to work. Should open up with remote access.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be little more proactive towards the product and let the talented team improve it rather then only thinking about $ to get from client to do those enhancements

    I worked at Monster Government Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Generally better than average pay depending on the position
    Many good and talented people in all departments
    Ability to take care of personal issues without push-back, as long as the job gets done
    Benefits seem OK

    Cons

    Lack of go-to-market strategy, no real business model or at least can't be articulated, poor planning - very reactive, non-inclusive and marginal management, Peter Principle at work here, Best Practices? - haven't seen any, non-existent leadership, toxic environment where opposing opinions are not valued, some departments over-step their bounds creating unnecessary conflicts, groups of people required to make simple decisions, poor internal communications and complete dismissal of any of these issues by management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employees are your most important customers, so provide them with full disclosure and trust them to do the work. Like any customer, they evangelize you or not - your choice. Ask questions and be prepared for the answers. Develop people skills and find good leaders. Replace executives and managers who don't cut it.

    Former Employee - Product Manager in McLean, VA

    I worked at Monster Government Solutions full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It's software and long government contracts mean there's a bit more security than other parts of Monster

    Cons

    No support from corporate, internal politics prevent organization from progressing. No investment in marketing or innovation. Lack of business best practices--or interest in best practices

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just retire instead of coming in between 9 and 5 and pretending to do work.

    Not a good place to work

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Monster Government Solutions full-time

    Pros

    i don't have anything to add.

    Cons

    Poor leadership - the culture is “toxic” b/c leadership sets unrealistic goals, micromanages and is non-inclusive with regard to the day to day of running a business..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    do something useful....

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in McLean, VA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in McLean, VA

    I worked at Monster Government Solutions full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salary is above market. There are good people in the mix and you will certainly learn how to deal with politics designed to keep you from getting your job done if that is a skill that you want to add to your roster.

    Cons

    The company is riddled with the kind of people that have given politics a bad name. Finding ways to get other people to do your work and basking in the spotlight when corporate calls is the name of the game at MGS.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just give it up already. Cut the lego man haircuts and find a better place to shop than Men's Warehouse.

    I have been working at Monster Government Solutions full-time

    Pros

    There are a lot of very talented workers.

    Cons

    Senior executives do not care about the workers. They are consistently doing what they need to do to earn their bonuses without thinking of the consequences to other teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to what your day to day staff has to say. They know what the issues are and they care. Management needs to also care about the company and staff and not just what benefits them.
