    Pros

    Awesome pay and benefits. Tons of freedom if you work in the field.

    Huge company so you feel like just another number. Quotas are a bit unreasonable at times

    Remember the people in the trenches are the company's most important asset.

    I have been working at Monster Worldwide full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities to perform a variety of tasks and projects; great people to work with; great product, even in the competitive and challenging online HR space;

    Cons

    Large, established company trying to figure out how to become young and nimble again makes for a very painful leadership environment; too much 'old school' thought still holding sway at the top (and sometimes in the middle echelons as well)

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to leave the past behind even if you think it will cost you customers
