Pros

Great benefits, good work-life balance, friendly atmosphere. Some very smart, talented people, too. And if you are the type who just wants to get by, they offer competitive salaries and are slow to lay off/fire underperformers.

Cons

Lots of problems with leadership not understanding the business. In-fighting among management, competition between the divisions. Many among the leadership are clearly working for personal gain and not for the benefit of the business or employees. Slow to get things done. Management is scatterbrained, unclear about priorities, and inefficient about setting things in motion. Very low level of employee morale in the office.

Advice to Management

Reward concrete results instead of paying attention to those who like to market themselves and their team. Ignore what people are saying and ask them to prove what they have done.

    Pros

    Monster Worldwide has a great work live balance. If you're interested in the job search market this is the place to be.

    Cons

    Maynard is in the middle of nowhere. This isn't a technology company, it is a job search company that uses technology.

    I have no advice to offer.

    "Could have been a blue chip company but didn't innovate quickly enough"

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    There are some great people who work at Monster: bright, motivated, and entrepreneurial, but they are leaving because they lack confidence in Monster's senior management.

    Cons

    Slow, difficult to effect change. This is a company that ruled online recruitment, and instead of constantly innovating, they focused too much on clients and not enough on users. Sure enough, the users aren't going there anymore and now CB, Hot Jobs and others are providing a much better user experience. It's been disappointing to watch the company squander away their brand equity and market dominance. Just look at the stock price over the last couple of years.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better, build a better product for users
