    All reviews so far show the reasons for the cumulative problems at Jobfox

    Pros

    A team of employees (not management) work well together.

    Cons

    The comments here show a history of the cons of working for Jobfox and why it's sinking quickly. It seems that one day we are hiring the best and brightest and the next day they are walking out the door. Marketing is not done properly so too much money is being spent focusing on something that could easily work if they would just listen to their customers. There are so many complaints about Jobfox all over the web and each of them are valid. The leadership at Jobfox has always looked for quick fixes instead of looking at the long term solution to what is going to take them down. It truly could have been a company that surpassed even the best of the job boards. Either the management have been given terrible advice or they see there is some way to save themselves.

    Jobfox is a sinking ship - I agree with the other reviewer from last year.

    Pros

    They used to be great. The job was fine for about 2 years. Some of the managers are great to work with. The senior managers are in a different league and out of touch with the regular worker.

    Cons

    Let's just say that it's a sinking ship and I never received my last two paychecks. That's the worst feeling - a full month's work was apparently pro bono. But, I should have seen it coming - the company seemed to be slowing down at the end of last year and this year, it's just not able to pick itself back up.

    Could have been something special

    Pros

    -Great work/life balance -Great place to learn and grow your professional self -Friendly, helpful staff -Free snacks, happy hours, and coffee!

    Cons

    Jobfox has a lot of potential but just can't grasp the ideas and opportunities that makes it so special. Management does not take the time to reward current employees or maintain the talent they develop. They are always looking for the faster, cheaper, and less forward-thinking solution. All decisions are made with the next week in mind rather than the next month, year, etc. Upper management thinks they have rid themselves of their "scam" moniker, but is painfully out of touch with reality. Positions are not filled, but rather more responsibility is dumped on employees doing 2 if not more roles at once.

    Like being on the Titanic

    Feb 23, 2012 - Third Class Passenger 
    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    There are few "best" reasons for working at Jobfox but for the sake of not being all negative I would say that most of the third class passengers (i.e., those not in management) get along well and work good together.

    Cons

    The senior staff (first class passengers) are the ones that treat each other very well and as the ship is sinking, they will likely put themselves on the life boats and let the rest of us drown. There is little respect from the management and the only communication from them is mainly negative. The current executives are ones that have been there from the very beginning so nothing changes. We work very hard but get little praise or thanks for a job well done even after we have worked long hours to deliver the product. There are a lot of complaints about the services on the web but management will not take the advice of the general public. If the company is the titanic, then the general public is the iceburg that will take it down because nobody is paying attention and we are going full speed ahead into a deep plunge. Sadly the only survivors will be the first class passengers who can blame it on anyone but themselves.

    Sinking so fast their hair is wet.

    Pros

    Very relaxed work atmosphere with lots of very friendly and intelligent people who are there to help guide you in the right direction.

    Cons

    A lot is asked with little appreciation from management and minor personal return. Most employees under the age of 25 are living at home or receiving assistance from their parents.

    Pros

    Legendary Leadership that has come from successful organizations. Fun start-up environment that requires hard work but rewards you for it. Great people to work with and communicate with.

    Cons

    Overall I've been pretty happy with Jobfox. I think we're growing so fast that the office space is getting a bit small.
