    I worked at Monster Worldwide (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked in a fantastic office space. Supervisors were extremely understanding and would always help when I asked, even encouraging me to reach out with more questions. I really enjoyed the experience and feel it prepared me a lot for my next career steps. Pay was great too.

    Cons

    Upstairs offices are standard cubicles. Company is in a difficult spot trying to regain their prior acclaim.

    Pros

    It's been exciting to watch Talent Fusion play a role in the change. (Especially over the last year) Talent Fusion leadership gives the team the opportunity to take on exciting responsibilities and run. Everyone can take the lead in their own way and make a difference. This is SO important for me professionally. Because of this we are growing, we are building loyal customers and celebrating wins on a daily basis internally. I can't wait to see what else we can do!

    Cons

    Things are moving at a rapid pace, so buckle up! (I know -- truly a positive, but can be challenging too.)

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing, keep hiring good people, keep allowing your team to work hard and shine!

    Pros

    With several years at Talent Fusion, I have seen the company go through many challenges. The progress we have made through our current leadership has been made is outstanding! Our culture has transformed into a place where you no longer feel like you are behind closed doors. Leadership continues to share with us the conversations they are having about Talent Fusion at the top and our successes. Working remotely-the flexibility is awesome. My manager has created a great culture for my entire remote team and we are extremely collaborative. Learning-learning has not stopped, at all. My personal recruiting career has continued to grow due to leadership and teammates.

    Cons

    Nothing negative about Talent Fusion at this time.

    Pros

    Company is investing in people and technology again. Better direction and momentum with growth.

    Cons

    Technical tools have fallen behind competition, but getting better. We need advertising to support our place in the market. Support our brand of "helping people find jobs"

    Advice to Management

    We are behind competition in advertising, attracting job seekers. Our competition has strong name and branding. We need to get that back.

    Pros

    We have a great team of dedicated employees and managers. They take good care of their employees. Lots of flexibility. Good commission structure. PTO is good and 401K. A lot of people willing to help you when needed. They are offering more training than before.

    Cons

    Fear of job security. Can we turn this ship around fast enough?

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on what you are currently doing. We are definitely headed in the right direction. We need to invest in advertising, advertising, did I mention advertising? Just like us cold calling for top of mind awareness, lets get commercials out there and focus heavy on the seeker side.

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

    Pros

    Almost no expectation of needing to do any work while receiving a salary.

    Cons

    Corporate management gets fired or leaves every year so each new person in management spends about six months getting onboarded and then another six months looking for a new job.

    The culture is extremely toxic. Imagine large cubicle farms and employees that don't care about one another and will fight for crumbs at the top. Most of management is extremely incompetent in that they are in relax and chill mode. Their main goals are to try to disrupt the job market now in Monster's twenty something year.

    Given their current burn rate, expect the company to topple in about a year.

    Advice to Management

    Give up but I guess that's already happening
