Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Great brand name and some good people

Cons

While on one hand Monster executives day they promote an open door policy as well as innovation, this does not actually play out in day-to-day activities. The executives are quick to point blame when something goes wrong, most often at a scapegoat, and not the senior person responsible.

Advice to Management

Do what you say. On one hand executives say ethics is a top priority, but promotions do not go to the best workers, but rather the folks that best kiss butt.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The only pro of working at Monster is you can say you worked there and people will know the name.

    Cons

    Everything else. Salary, favoritism, incompetence of senior mgmt, routine layoffs, it's a cold, cold place.

    Advice to Management

    Their Sr Mgmt should quit and allow people with talent and leadership to be hired.
