    I worked at Monster Government Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Salary ok Benefits ok Taking time off when needed ok Friendly coworkers and staff

    Cons

    No career path discussions No real empowerment to staff Some favoritism from certain senior managers that led to a toxic environment or low morale at times need more mentorship to new employees need more training (example: Monster University) treated like children at times rather than professional adults need to follow best business practices

    Advice to Management

    Empower employees more, follow best business practices more, have a clear direction on future projects, prioritize new projects better, be honest with your teams, better resource management and certainly budget better as a company to give your employees annual raises when deserved

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are your most important customers, so provide them with full disclosure and trust them to do the work. Like any customer, they evangelize you or not - your choice. Ask questions and be prepared for the answers. Develop people skills and find good leaders. Replace executives and managers who don't cut it.
