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

Pros

I love the great bunch of people that I work with.

Cons

The culture has shifted and people aren't as happy as they once were. Part of it would most certainly be the change in compensation, the other being the increased demands/product quotas.

Advice to Management

Take notice to the culture shift and go back to the previous compensation packages.

    Pros

    Some of the smartest, most passionate, energized people you will ever work with. The company values are for real. If you aren't prepared to live by them then you should probably find another place to work because you won't be happy here. Management is transparent, politics are minimal, it is all about performance.

    Cons

    It is a very competitive atmosphere. If you are in sales and you are not cut out for that field you will figure it out more quickly here than in other sales organizations.

    Advice to Management

    Stay frosty. LinkedIn is nipping at our heels and we need to continue to evolve!

    Pros

    This position gives you access to other opportunities within the company and can be a good platform to build from.

    There is also a lot of training available so you can grow your professional skills and abilities as much as you'd like.

    The healthcare benefits are great. They also offer a wellness benefit that CB will reimburse the employee $400 annually to spend on something fitness related.

    There are team outings and happy hours and employee parties to help build teamwork and morale as well. However, this is more of a small distraction from your day-to-day duties more than anything.

    Cons

    The amount of responsibility and workload you are expected to have for the money is not worth it. You are consistently given new and different metrics that you are measured by. A decent portion of your bonus is tied to the sales survey given to the sales reps you support. If a sales rep decides to give you a bad score for whatever reason your small bonus will suffer substantially.

    There is also a lot of favoritism present as well so be prepared for that. If you want to play the game and jump through hoops then this might be a good opportunity for you. However, the amount of extra responsibilities they want you to take on to get a promotion is generally not worth it. Even when promoted to Senior CSS you will still be making around 40k with bonuses. In order to make a decent livable wage you will need to be promoted several times within this department. I would suggest using your experience at CB to find better money for similar work elsewhere within the first year or two.

    If you are looking to get into sales this could be a good fit for you if you are willing to relocate. However, if you want to stay in the Atlanta area there is a lot of red tape before being able to get promoted into sales.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend management hire directly out of college to take advantage of their eagerness and lack of a need for much income to get by. This would be a good opportunity for a recent college grad for their first year or two out of school. I would also recommend management have a more realistic approach to managing their team. This is a great place to learn how to function in a corporate environment but when all is said and done the role is more administrative and task oriented than about the bigger picture.
