I have been working at Monster Worldwide full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great Co-Worker
Okay Benefits
Flexibilty of Time off
Good Location

Cons

No Accountability for actual time worked by employees.
Lack of real Management
Favoritism to some employees
Managers use internet inappropriately as do employees.
Sales people are give spiffs for things they should be doing as part of their normal jobs they are being paid to do.

Advice to Management

You need to make sure you employees are actually working and putting in the hours they claim on there time cards. There employees who come in at 10am leave at 4pm and take 2 hour lunches. You also have people claiming to be working and are actually on vacation with with the family or or friends.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Good salary to start off with and good sales reps working around you. Most of your peers will help if you ask them to.

    Cons

    The management is not personable and doesn't really care about their employees and actually helping them to succeed. They are strictly focused on hitting some unrealistic sales goals and hesitant to actually get on the phone and help the sales staff achieve those goals.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on how you can help employees succeed instead of finding someone to blame for not achieving their sales goals.

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

    Pros

    not much to speak of - mostly chasing their tail and wishing they were linkedin. Very late to the game

    Cons

    management is not supportive, CEO is not innovative, the company thinks b/c they were one of the first sites on the internet, that should be enough to get customers to buy - NOPE

    Advice to Management

    listen to your people and pay attention to the market.
