    There is ABSOLUTELY NO REASON to work for this Company. It will damage you for life.

    Pros

    i have to enter five words here.

    Cons

    company is millions of dollars in debt with no plan to fix it, other than cutting more and more people and not paying bills. Treat employees like dogs, both with unreasonable expectations and not adhering to basic employment laws.

    Advice to Management

    not like they would take nay

    I have been working at Monster Inc full-time

    Pros

    I'm old, so I've worked in every industry from hospitality to retail...and it never fails to crack me up how many people say that they want a "challenging position that allows them to grow." If that's truly what you want, this is a great place to find all of the above.

    Amazing coworkers. This team as a whole isn't just kind and understanding, but they somehow maintain their sense of humor under extreme pressure. There's genuine loyalty...that's rare at any company these days.

    Cons

    I wish there were more communication, but ultimately, if you need an answer, all you really need to do is ask. Sometimes it's just a matter of not even knowing what to ask and just learn by doing.

    Advice to Management

    We're all here to learn and listen, so loop us in whenever you can.

    Pros

    Great people passionated and motivated. Products are good. Benefit are ok.

    Cons

    No work/life balance. The head of Monster is expecting you to be on call 24h/24h and call for last minute meetings during week-ends and will yell at you if you don't show up. He falls on sleep during meetings and you have to re-do the meetings. He has strong ideas on everything and little open mind. If you don't work directly with him, you may be safe.
    BUT the company laid off many employees, therefore it put extra work load on other employees and a very stressful environment. I have seen people laid off or just leaving every single month, including the vice-president, vice-president of sales, VP of finances. Event upper level people quitted.
    The building is dark and you never see the day light.

    Advice to Management

    None because they are not willing to change.

    Cons

    Top Monster needs to realize he isn't the only opinion that matters.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the process going!

    Noel is a lunatic, he's tanking the company and his upper management is too gutless to tell him what he needs to hear.
