Current Employee - Online Consultant - Ebu in Chicago, IL
Current Employee - Online Consultant - Ebu in Chicago, IL
Approves of CEO

Pros

Good Benefits.
Good money if you get lucky, make quota, and jump through their hoops.

Cons

My team lead was completely incompetent and biased. (The fact that you"re good at sales doesn't mean you will be a good manager)

They honestly don't care about their employees.

The work itself is very repetitive and boring.

Overall, CareerBuilder claims many different things such as the fact that their employees are happy or that there is room to move up within the company. While there is some truth to this on rare occasions, overall it is false. The competitive environment creates a great sense of hostility among coworkers. I have witnessed employees get thrown under the bus by their colleagues as well as their team leads.

When you are offered a position with this company, take it for the experience but I would strongly recommend looking for another job within a few months.

PS - I have worked here for a while and have been successful.

Advice to Management

You give some team leads way too much credit.
Sometimes, there is more to success than numbers (which is difficult to comprehend because this is a sales job).

    "Glen Gary Glen Ross"

    Former Employee - Major Account Executive in Denver, CO
    Former Employee - Major Account Executive in Denver, CO
    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    pays well (if you are one of the 5% who hit quota) and outstanding benefits

    Cons

    Intimidation style of management. Described as a 'Glen Gary, Glen Ross' sales environment. Turnover at the sales position is extremely high and customers despise how many different sales people they have to work with over the course of a year. Management doesn't value long term customer relationships or long term business, only quarterly 'wins'. Company develops products at a blistering pace, most of which don't work well and sacrifice brand and customer loyalty when customer realizes they made a purchase with low or no return.

    Advice to Management

    Find an identity and stick with it. President of NA can't articulate who CB is!
