    I have been working at CareerBuilder full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits such as ability to work from home, generous wellness reimbursement, 2 year 401k vesting, 5+ weeks of vacation with ability to roll over a week, lots of time/money invested in training & career development programs.

    Opportunity for non-sales employees to earn merit-based trip (generally to Mexico but also to Hawaii and other places).

    Global company with lots of opportunities to advance/specialize in new aspects of recruitment and human data capital management.

    Cons

    Non-sales employees pay borderline mediocre. Seems to have a hard time "trimming the fat" on non-performers in certain departments.

    Advice to Management

    Be more proactive in improving the bottom 20% or getting them out. It is demotivating to the top performers to see mediocrity rewarded (even if it's just avoiding the situation).

    I worked at CareerBuilder full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    very cool place to work if you're into all things nerdy. work is pretty easy once you figure out procedures

    Cons

    actually figuring out procedures. Nobody really has any procedures laid out. Even when you have a meeting with your team and manager nobody seems to follow the procedures that were agreed upon. They all just go back to doing their own thing and then wondering why things get left out and not completed. A lot of people there have a very high on themselves attitude and tend to be very underhanded and condescending, especially if you don't know something. Don't let the management fool you. If you are a contractor there be very cautious and don't bank on getting hired full time. They seem to enjoy getting peoples hopes up, way up, then back out at the last minute. Not a very good business practice in the least. From what I was told I had the position in the bag. They were "getting ready to on board as soon as my contract ended". So, I stopped looking for jobs, and they cancelled my contract 2 weeks before it was up and I was to come on board. Thanks for that 2 months before xmas.....Really not cool to play with peoples emotions and their families well being.

    Advice to Management

    Hold your people accountable. If you agree on a policy or procedure then follow through with it and make sure its being followed. You would spend a lot less time wondering why things aren't getting completed that way!

    Pros

    Flexibility, management is great - I have the best & most knowledgeable leadership I ever have had. Also, the myriad software acquisitions and Google partnership are game changing for the CB image.

    Cons

    Before, too much going on when customer success wasn't as readily available - now I utilize them as much as I can and it is the best way to forge a true client relationship.

    Pros

    It was good flexible hours. People were nice and pretty easy going.

    Cons

    Didn't really give you strategy about what you were doing. They didn't have great prospecting tools either.

    Advice to Management

    Help the employees get more training on prospect

    Pros

    Great culture, challenging work and constant changes

    Cons

    Lack of direction and confusion. Some of the leaders (field) are not qualified to run a senior level sales team.

    Advice to Management

    There is too much inconsistency with the messaging. Leaders ask their reps for unrealistic demands because they do not where they are heading.
