"Great Pay, great stress if you're in sales"

Star Star Star Star Star
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

Pros

Industry leading pay. Work from home. Brand recognition. Perks - Laptop, iPhone, company credit card, mobile hot spot, free swag, generous milage reimbursement

Cons

If you're in sales, quota can be very difficult to make, most don't make it. Large product offering however hard to sell anything other than Search/Post. 90% of companies have used Monster at some point making it a hard sell. Constantly berated on your pipeline. Prospective customers are often false leads. Don't get quarterly quota until half way into quarter. Slim chance of becoming a manager if you start in sales. Would take many many years. Mainly hire external. Not growing, all hires are backfills.

Advice to Management

Management is actually very good

    I have been working at Monster Worldwide full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have some co workers who are so smart and so great to work with it. Monster is pretty good at work life balance. The overall stability of the company does seem better then what it once was.

    Cons

    It just seems like there are a lot of people who do nothing. We have started trying to be more innovative, however just aren't heading in the right direction. Just seems to me we are mirroring our competitors instead of getting a head of the game. We have a lot of people who stop things from moving forward and everything gets trapped in process. There is a lot of time making up for where Sales seems to lack.

    Advice to Management

    Clean a little more house and get the sales team to sale.

    "Awful"

    Pros

    The field sales team was great to work with. Other than that I can't find another positive thing to say.

    Cons

    There is little to no decision making capability amongst the management. No direction and no focus. There was no business plan and a culture based on preventing teamwork.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the middle management and start over. You have the data to be a good company
