      Great Culture

      Jan 12, 2021 - Account Manager

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Focus is not only on how we move forward together but how we can take care of one another as we progress. Company has changed with new leadership over the last few years. Clear focus on how to achieve org and personal goals. Heavy emphasis on a healthy culture as well. New leadership has made it clear they care about their employees.

      Cons

      Pay/compensation and benefits are fair. Both could use improvement as the company moves forward. Biggest con was direction - that has been addressed. Clear plan in place to move Monster forward in the recruitment environment.

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Really solid benefits, cohesive and fun culture with opportunity for upward mobility. Always felt taken care of and appreciated. In the early days, we were a force to be reckoned with and everyone knew who Monster was.

      Cons

      Job ad product has become less and less relevant in the marketplace with emerging technologies such as LinkedIn, Indeed and Glassdoor. We struggled to find our identify and flipped between sourcing company, technology company and ad company on the regular to try and find relevance in a crowded space. Strategy became elusive and brand had lost ground to new players which made selling difficult. A series of layoffs made job security a top concern.
