I have been working at Monster Worldwide full-time (Less than a year)
Good health care benefits, certainly better than the ones I had at IBM.
Better 401K distribution and matching than them also.
Incredibly smart people.
Amazing Technology Stack from Cloud, to Career Websites, to Cognitive, Semantic Search, AI, Machine Learning, Bullhorn integration, and the list goes on and on.
They are willing to make the changes needed to get the company back on track.
Randstad, who acquired them in 2016, is committed to their success.
In a position to disrupt the marketplace.
Tech stack is a little "over populated" and disconnected.
They are rolling in a lot of new leadership which is always a bit painful.
It will most likely take a few months or quarters to discover and clean up issues so they have a clear path in 2018.
2017 is a rebuilding year.
Advice to Management
Job postings and search licenses are a dying service. Focus on the tech stack and getting a clear GTM strategy that packages relevant technologies together for the benefit of the client. Stay client focused and treat the employees like gold for hanging in there during the difficult times to come.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Monster Worldwide (Weston, MA) in May 2017.
There was 2 phone interviews initially. After that I was called for an onsite interview. The interview went well. The next day, HR called me and said that I was selected for that position. As an graduating student, I was very excited that I got an offer in one of the best companies. My background verification also was in process. But later, after a week when I asked them to send me the offer letter, the HR called me said in plain voice that they can not offer me this position as they did not have the budget. I was initially shocked for a moment to hear this as there was no reason I could be rejected after HR called me and told that I was selected. I only wanted to let them know that if they did not have the budget, they should have decided that earlier before opening that position or at least before informing me that I was selected. After all the happiness that was there for a week, they just took it away in 1 minute. I also rejected an offer which I had since they clearly told me that I was selected and they will send me an offer letter. But finally I was emotionally hurt and that left me dejected. I know it happens sometimes but not never seen a company of such stature to decline an offer after informing me that I was selected and when my background verification was in progress.
