I have been working at CareerBuilder full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Hands down one of the BEST sales training organizations around

Benefits are top notch and bonus compensation is very generous. (work hard and stay over 100%)

You are rewarded for hard work- Company trips are second to none, you get to take a plus one and they spoil the hell out of you.

Senior Management is solid

Cons

Low base pay (made up for with good commissions) but still too low

Account/ Rep movement- Accounts are shuffled and leadership changes often. One of Careerbuilder's core values is agility but there is too much movement within the organization.

Quota demands- quota is fair but if a rep has an absolutely stellar year you are punished by an exorbitantly high quota the next. This is a main cause for movement, the only way to stay with the company (and not get fired) is to get promoted, move into management, or operations.

Management- pick your manager wisely! This can make or break you here...

Advice to Management

Less movement among accounts and management would be nice but not necessary. Quotas need to be assessed to make sure good reps aren't turning over or changing positions to stay afloat. Overall extremely happy, senior leadership is truly phenomenal at this company.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at CareerBuilder full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    great passion, support and visionary leadership from the CEO, CFO and COO

    Cons

    very slow with process and change flow in regards to business operations and heavy internal political climate making it hard to do what is right for the customers and the day to day business.

    Advice to Management

    Peel back the onion, and look beyond all the layers of managers and director titles to see the real contributors and true leaders
