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

Pros

The people on the front lines are amazing. I met some of my greatest friends there.
Good benefits.
Competitive salary.

Cons

Senior management has lost focus - more concerened with tracking metrics then actual selling.
Advancement in Maynard office is awful. Many times outside people are brought in over viable inside candidates.
Top talent are in an exodus.

Advice to Management

Get back to being a sales and marketing company.
Create a culture within the company besides the fear culture.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Overall great people on the floor that truly believed in doing the right thing. An overall desire to collaborate on big picture strategy was very strong (though sometimes handicapped by legacy problems).

    Cons

    Challenges with a very complex industry, outdated platforms and product offerings, and a strategy that needs deep thought to provide room for innovation. The problems were known and being confronted slowly.

    Advice to Management

    Executives need to better understand the products, the needs of customers and invest in great teams to let innovation happen both on the roadmap and in bluesky fashion. There were not nearly enough team members on the floor to neither keep up nor push forward in a direction that will move the needle.

    I worked at Monster Worldwide full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Data driven, solid technology, good selling points and strong brand. Monster has been an industry leader for many years. The Power Resume Search tool is out of this world, as is the SeeMore tool. These tools could be industry game-changers. A fantastic organization that is going through unnecessarily turbulent times when the market is bouncing back.

    Cons

    Top-tier management doesn't know how to manage in turbulent times. Monster is undervalued as an organization. Their stock price does not reflect the solidity of their products and services. Sal is a big part of the problem and he needs to be replaced.

    Advice to Management

    Need to let the top tier management go and start fresh with new leadership that understands the changing landscape of online recruitment. Sal has had his opportunity and unfortunately has dropped the ball. Make sure your CEO is visible to the company. Sal has been silent for the past 9 months. No one knows what is going on. You need to communicate with your people from time to time and let them know what is going on!!!!!!!!
