    I have been working at Monster Worldwide full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They are a well-established company, with good benefits, I like that the development team has a maturity to it, they are no longer looking for "rockstars" or "ninjas", they hire real people who have a life outside of work. all co-workers are senior, and the culture is to teach not judge, it's a nice place to work.

    Cons

    they were just sold to Randstad after a long period of downsizing, they could use a little direction and or a refreshed mission.

    Advice to Management

    be bold, take chances. the team is ready and able to pull it off.

    I have been working at Monster Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    Good work life balance. On site cafe, Starbucks, underground parking, on site gym

    Cons

    Upper management makes decisions but never cascades them down. They do the same thing over & over and avoid (or dont see) the real issues. Do not listen to employees and sales to hear what is really going on.
    No employee development or promotions
    No cross-functional communication

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, keep it simple and stop trying to change how to sell every 3 months.

    Pros

    Nothing comes to mind

    Cons

    The things that made Monster great, the products, the people, they are all long gone. What's left is nothing more than out of touch dinosaurs and corporate bullies who can't get a job elsewhere because they are miserable humans. Run, don't walk and find better...elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    None
