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

Pros

Great pay (both salary and commission).
Fun Culture - depending on your sales manager

Cons

Management thinks Monster is still #1. People arent using Monster like they used to and people are not as impressed with the name brand anymore. The name doesnt sell itself anymore. Its a dying industry. They are behind the 8-ball.

Advice to Management

People over profits and you would be surprised how performance can take off.

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

    Pros

    Great compensation, flexibility and opportunity to exposure

    Cons

    No transparity with senior management. "We - they" enviornment. Not a lot of room for advancement. Products are not keeping up with the competition.

    Advice to Management

    Not a lot of respect for Senior Management right now. No clear strategic path. Management needs to listen employees.

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

    Pros

    I believe in the mission of helping people improve their lives by finding the right job. The employees are wonderful, cooperative and dedicated. My own manager has given me a lot of opportunity to develop.

    Cons

    The executive management doesn't understand technology or the Internet and is still chasing an old business model, which has been very detrimental to the company. They consider employees to be expendable (and have expended MANY recently) and make no effort to raise our crappy morale.

    Advice to Management

    Leave and let someone who knows what they're doing take over.
