    I have been working at CareerBuilder full-time

    Pros

    Love what we are doing to become an ecosystem provider. Challenging work because we move so fast

    Cons

    Challenges with growing are always tough - work through the internal shift and make sure everyone is aware of changes happening

    Advice to Management

    get back to a day in the life of a sales person and understand how that has changed since you were selling CB in the past.

    I worked at CareerBuilder (More than a year)

    Pros

    This is one of the best places I have worked at. The place is a mix of corporate setting with a startup culture, very organized when it comes to work and outlook but also gives its engineers the ability to work independantly (no micro-management). I have known multiple people that had left and came back running, I would have considered doing the same as well if I did not need to get back closer to my family which is much farther away than where Careerbuilder operates.

    Cons

    Sincerely, the only con I see is maybe the pay compared to the country's average but for where it is located the pay is somewhat average. I left with an offer that gave me about a full 100k over my base there...

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up guys!

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits

    Cons

    We do too much, we're now not great at most. Upper leadership acts like they care about you but they don't.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down. Think and process before acting and delivering.

    I have been working at CareerBuilder full-time

    Pros

    CareerBuilder has an excellent work-life balance. There are a lot of great people here as well. A+ players.

    Cons

    The company isn't in the best spot financially, and it is impacting the culture. This compounds the fact that they tend to pay on the low side of salary ranges across the board.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of bonuses. Most employees do not believe their performance influences how they are rated quarterly for their bonus. Make it a flat sum added to their base.
