    Pros

    Monster goes above and beyond for their employees and has given me a lot of opportunity to grow. The company is working towards a great turn around.

    Cons

    A lot of changes that can seem overwhelming sometimes and job security can always leave you feeling anxious, which has an adverse affect on the culture.

    Advice to Management

    Management is great. Most of them are in the trenches along with their employees!

    Pros

    Management cared so little that you could come in whenever you wanted as long as you put your time in.

    Cons

    Just about everything else. You will be under-compensated, under-appreciated, and overworked. Randstad has done little to resolve this...perhaps intentionally.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your talent.

    Coworkers, managers and work load is very balanced.

    Poor compensation and seems to be random.
