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

    Pros

    Monster has very good starting pay compared to other companies but hardly any incremental after that, even after getting highest performance rating many years in a row.

    Cons

    - incompetent senior management team
    - no direction and no planning
    - 5 lay offs so far in my 6+ years with the company
    - more political than actual work

    Advice to Management

    stop worrying about your own self and start worrying about the company. Stock value is down by 90% and the only solution the sr mgt team can find is another layoff. This 'solution' has already been used many times so far and yet has done nothing to save the stock from the deep dive it takes every quarter after earnings release.

    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.
