I have been working at Monster Worldwide full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

The best part is you get to work from where ever you feel like it ie.. Home, Starbucks, at the beach wherever your heart desires. Or don't work at all one day and no body cares or knows what you're doing. Calling in sick or for vacation not necessary either. As long as your showing numbers, that's all this company cares about. Benefits used to be fantastic with just a $500 deductible for $330 a month family plan but now it's $4000 deductible.

Cons

Extremely high quotas, management is never available when needed. Biggest problem with this company is they require things of you but never ever follow through with it. They create products to compete with companies when there's no completion in the first place. Apples and oranges are fruit but nothing alike. They create technology products and expect non-techie sales people to sell it. They offer incentives to sell certain products because they know those products are tough to sell. Plus they bought Hotjobs a few years back when HJ was going down hill. So they invest in a company that wasn't making any money and is not helping to make money. Not to mention this company is up for sale now. They have huge social media competitors and they have no idea how to compete. They're job postings don't work and they make clients spend more money in other products to make job postings work better.

Advice to Management

Be around more for your team. Live a day in your sales team shoes.

Other Employee Reviews for Monster Worldwide

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

    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.
