    Pros

    Amazing growth opportunity. Plenty of training. If you have ideas, your voice is most certainly heard.

    Cons

    Changing culture, a bit of unknowns with recent changes in ownership. Loss of original company culture.

    Pros

    Excellent training and career path opportunities

    Cons

    Always proving your worth, always. This can push you to be better. It's definitely not for everyone.

    Pros

    Have been with CareerBuilder over 7 years and the company continues to evolve and challenges its employees to evolve with it. The transition from an advertising company to and advertising and software company has separated CareerBuilder from everyone else in the industry and opened many new opportunities for its employees.

    Cons

    Due to the product suite growing so vast it's sometimes hard to understand what you should be focusing on week to week and month to month. Another effect of this can result in a lack of clear communication on where that focus should be.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to zero in on who you are in the marketplace and make sure that is being clearly communicated to your employees.

    Pros

    401k match, health and dental, pto accrual, cheap vending machines

    Cons

    Management, metrics keep changing, no one will give straight answers how we're being paid, they are paying us so little but keep adding more to our plate and refuse to backfill (we have access to labor market analytics and we can see we're being underpaid ridiculously), they treat you poorly then ask "why the moral is down", always having tech issues, they want you to sell products that aren't even finished being made!, organizational issues

    Advice to Management

    We understand things are constantly changing, but you're a software company. You need to pay your reps like they are software reps. Micromanaging is at an all time high, and everyone is quitting left and right. You still won't backfill and keep adding the accounts of those people to other peoples books and putting them on the line for cancellations that happened before you got the account.

    Pros

    I've been at CB for coming up on 6 years, and the company has changed a lot. I see that some people don't respond well to change, but those who do (work hard, play hard) are rewarded ten-fold. This company has limitless advancement opportunities, uncapped bonuses, FANTASTIC healthcare coverage, culture of a start up and funding of an enterprise company.

    Cons

    This isn't the company's fault, but some people are negative to change. This impacts the feel on the sales floors.

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you guys are doing! It is great to know that leadership hears feedback from employees.

    Program needs more learning structure.

    I worked at CareerBuilder full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    great company. evolving tech products. strong CEO and exec leadership.

    Cons

    CareerBuilder was struggling to maintain marketshare in their industry segment. Bigger players like LinkedIN and Indeed stole marketshare on the traditional job board product. The company's ability to pivot to SaaS tools from job postings was easier said than done.

    Advice to Management

    Sales accountability should be more closely monitored. Reputation can carry you for year's without anyone noticing.
