    Have a vision and share it.

    Pros

    Do not get me wrong. It is a great environment to work in because all of the employees and around the same age (25-35) and it is a very social group.

    Cons

    I am writing a "dissatisfied" review because this company will not pay you what market value is if you are in operations. They only care about the sales force, so if you are in sales i say go for it! On the operations side, almost everyone is ridiculously under paid and they know it and do not care. I work for the recruiting division called Personified and we have are losing people to different companies by the fistful. In the last two months, are top talent has been leaving the company at least 1 a week, usually two. The bosses keep calling us in to meetings to find out why everyone is leaving and there is only one answer. We are under paid. Honestly, a minimum of $10k underpaid. When we tell them that is why people are leaving, all they (bosses) ever say is, " well if they are just leaving for money they wont be happy and they'll regret it. Well you know what. Not a single person has yet. They will not acknowledge that the pay is an issue and it is pissing everyone off. When I hangout with my coworkers, which I do often (like i said the other employees are great) it could be ten of us out and 8 are complaining about pay and threatening to walk out the door any minute, they just do not have a job lined up yet. Management will not listen and CareerBuilder will not allocate more money for Operations. It is infuriating.

    Advice to Management

    Honestly pay people what we are worth. We do not even want much because i like my job, i just cannot sustain on this paycheck! The sales may get the deal signed, but it is your ops teams that make sure the product they sold WORKS!

    Fantastic place to work! Management truly cares about their employees and encourages growth. Great pay and benefits.

    Pros

    Excellent place to work, trust the employee, rewards & recognizes hard work, gives freedom to do the best job and does not micromanage. Truly trusts their remote employees and enables them to deliver successful results. CB values great talent.

    Cons

    Sometimes there can be long hours however CB does strive for a good work life balance. Overall I can't imagine a better place to work. They have good solid values that they stand behind.

    Cons

    Clicky
    Promoted based on who you know and how you are liked not what you did
    No one matters excepts for the sales rep
    Products stability are slipping

    Advice to Management

    It's not a frat club... this is a business.. the more you promote for no reason the more you will lose top talent.

    Pros

    Fairly young atmosphere, good leaders, encouraging work environment, great educational opportunities to advance learning, good benefits and non-tangible benefits (happy hours, group outings each quarter, lunches, etc.). Opportunities to be heard and share your ideas.

    Cons

    Sales is definitely the name of the game. Primary focus is on all sales teams and everything is catered to those groups. Senior management across the company seems to be a "Boys Club"

    Advice to Management

    I work on the Operations/Consulting side of CareerBuilder and feel like our knowledge is underutilized. Through the effort of our team, we are able to help secure repeat revenue, however the Sales Rep is the only person awarded for this effort. Spend time speaking with your non-sales teams to see how knowledgeable and helpful they may be in driving increased sales, and reward them too!
