Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Monster Worldwide full-time (More than a year)

Pros

As with most tech companies, the people you work directly with (your peers) are great. Don't worry though, you'll probably get to work with them again at another company.

Cons

The Senior management has no moral compass.
They kowtow to the board members and routinely lay off employees because their margins on their "$1.5 billion" revenue are off by a fraction of a percentage.
The health insurance benefits are really poor.

This company is run by accountants and they have no interest in innovating. Creativity is a disease that they try to wipe out by continuously "reorganizing".

Advice to Management

Fire the CEO and all the other C-level executives.

    There are lots of tenure employees
    Winning awards for innovation and technology

    Cons

    Industry stereotype of being 'just a job board'
    Location of Maynard is difficult
    Change of Senior Management trickle down is not always the best employee experience

    Advice to Management

    Do not lose sight that the people are what makes the company. They are customer facing, they hold the brand, responsible for the diverse and creative ideas. Work on the industry stereotype of being branded as 'just a job board'

    Pros

    Benefits are good, people that you work with make the job worth while.

    Cons

    No guidance or direction, Lack of communication from upper management. Too many times people are selected for advancement because they are a favorite of management even if someone else is more qualified for the job.
