    Pros

    Good co-workers to work with

    Cons

    Short sighted management. Company is beginning the death spiral. Layoffs are a way of life and outsourcing folks' positions to consulting firms in India. If you are looking for a career and not just a speed bump along the way, do not consider Monster as a serious choice.

    Advice to Management

    Understand and listen to your staff.

    I have been working at Monster Worldwide full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A nice building in Weston.

    Cons

    Worst managers in the Talent Fusion area of the company I have ever come across. Employees in this division are all looking for other jobs. New head of our division is horrible and lacks any type of leadership skills. Can't imagine this company will be here in a year after being acquired by Ranstad.

    Advice to Management

    I think there is no advice that will save this company.
