Pros

Good opportunities for advancement, the organization is mostly a meritocracy, vacation time is above average if you can find the time to actually use it.

Cons

Monster is a big company and it struggles under it's own weight. In a market that's filled with younger, more mobile companies, innovation at Monster is stifled by corporate bureaucracy.

Advice to Management

Monster is a web 1.0 company struggling in a web 2.0 world. Adapting current best practices and focusing on getting beyond the keyword/zipcode job search would be a step in the right direction. Focusing on user experience and interface would go a long way toward increasing the consumer value proposition.

    No leadership, and the business model is outdated. It only survives do to its huge critical mass of resumes posted, but other recruitment sites are eroding that.

    Advice to Management

    It's the guys in the trenches the ones who make things happen. Don't treat them like dirt.

    Pros

    Intelligent co-workers, flexible hours, ability to work remotely.

    Cons

    Ill-conceived product line creates problems rather than adding value. $31 million marketing campaign and rebranding appears to have had little impact. Ineffectual television commercials did not run very long. Employee retention is extremely low. Options backdating scandal continues to have a negative impact on earnings. Profit margin is only around 15 percent. Most members of new leadership team has come from Iannuzzi's former company.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees.
