I have been working at CareerBuilder full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Cool people, agile, great benefits, opportunities to learn

Cons

Pays avg to less than avg. Lots of BAD legacy code. Vanilla office space (even after a 2 million dollar renovation), but the people and culture kind of make up for that. Coding in the monolithic environment is slow and painful.

    Pros

    Great benefits, forward thinking environment, encouragement of new ideas. Innovative, energetic, technologically advanced.

    Cons

    Somewhat scattered with regard to various offerings to clients. Internally not as organized as we may appear...probably true for most organizations.

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

    Pros

    Excellent culture, 40 hour work weeks (36 in the summer with summer hours), lots of opportunities for contributing innovative ideas such as "hack days" each quarter where engineers can work on and present tech ideas to C-levels (and get paid $10K and get 6 weeks to implement the idea if it is one of the winners). There are so many fun areas to work in and you will learn so much more here than at other jobs.

    Cons

    The company seems to have ADD - constantly changing priorities, moving people between teams and products, and changing strategy, goals, and focus.

    Advice to Management

    Big ideas require more than 3 weeks to implement and pull all the way through. We're a great company at starting new things, but we're very bad at pulling things through to deliver customer value. I would recommend working on a better process for ensuring valuable engineering ideas are not forgotten or cut off due to a lack of long-term planning skills among those making product/project decisions.
