    I have been working at CareerBuilder full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Couldn't have asked for a better job right out of college! The New Business Group is where its at! CB is a great place to dip your toes is the water of the sales world and learn a lot. Didn't come in with a lot of experience 2 years ago but have learned A LOT since joining CB. Big Pros are if you put in the work you will get promoted quickly and continue to move into roles with more $$. I've been promoted 3 times in 2 yrs and my income has doubled. It never hurts that I whole heatedly trust the senior leadership and executives. Other pros-great benefits, wellness benefits, fun happy hours and team outings.

    Cons

    Things change A LOT in terms of structure and process stuff. That can be kind of stressful but every change has left me in a better position than before with more potential to make $$. If you can handle change and a bit of uncertainty it will pay off.

    I worked at CareerBuilder full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Currently, there are no Pros other than a measly paycheck if you can't find a better company. All the "great benefits they list on there site are no more. All those "culture" photos are of employees who were laid off, fired or quit. Why no new photos? CB no longer makes an effort to have a culture anymore. They eliminated half day Fridays, don't allow budget for team outings anymore, hold the their share of your 401K contribution for 13 months and drop in a one time payment to trap you there and provide no accolades or awards for saving the day and growing the business. Operations only receives their bonus once a year which isn't totally uncommon, unless of course it's 20% of your Target Comp. No one can live off of only 80% of their pay (especially when that pay is 30-40% less than the it should be.)

    Cons

    For whatever reason, Apollo group has hung on to a group of Senior Leadership that has been there for 15+ years when the company was just a job board and in the 15 years they've been there they've done absolutely nothing to grow their skills, knowledge or evolve in anyway. You can't call you're self a SaaS/Tech company when you can't let go of the Mad Men style "Good Old Boys and the occasional extremely cruel woman" game that worked for you 25 years ago. The VP's and Directors have their eyes totally blinded to the reality of the tech industry and poor HR can't get them to open them. If anyone in HR tries to do their job and bring hard truths to these leaders they are either fired , shuffled around or their 'position is eliminated" only for it to be open for back fill. (Same for any of the very few front line managers left.)

    Great benefits, great access to bleeding edge. For someone just starting out, it is a place to grow.

    Cons

    Below average pay, management looks out for self and friends. If you have been there over 10 years you are golden. Working there is like the Hunger Games. Always fighting to move slightly ahead.
