    I worked at Monster Worldwide full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This was my favorite company I've ever worked for. I really can't say enough great things. Most of the time in sales you are treated like trash and easily replaceable, not the case at Monster. From the moment you are hired to the moment you leave you are treated like family. They stress the importance of sales team members and as a result have created a great culture that is very rewarding for sales reps. I also had a phenomenal manager who really taught us how to be better reps and better people. I have nothing but the best to say about Monster. If you are considering a job here in sales you would be smart to accept!

    Cons

    Understanding commission structure felt like it literally required a rocket scientist to break it down for you. I never completely understood it. (As one who hit quota it wasn't a huge problem because Monster rewards your hard work very well with more than fair commissions payouts so even though you don't understand why you got paid so much you are ok with it). Right before my termination I heard they were changing the commission structure to make it easier to understand but I was not there long enough to see that occur.

    Advice to Management

    Being blindsided by a layoff was incredibly difficult. I had no prep time to find another job and that can be difficult when you are the only breadwinner for your family. I know in a merger it's probably to be expected but it would have been nice to have been given some heads up.

    Pros

    Generally a really good working environment. Good people.

    Cons

    Lack of Marketing killing the organization
    Management trying the same thing over & over to generate revenue instead of facing the real issues head-on.

    Advice to Management

    Monster's biggest issue is one of image / perception. Many millennials don't know who Monster is. And those who do still think of Monster as a job board and nothing else.

    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.
