    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.

    I worked at Monster Worldwide full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great peers to work with. Like family.

    Cons

    budget cuts, project cuts, travel cuts, layoffs, turnover, lack of innovation and what they have done isn't really ground breaking. And layoffs...more just yesterday. Products and services do not perform well and the company says they are doing things to improve performance but it's not working. Too many managers. The middle management is excessive but instead of getting rid of the managers they keep letting go of the sales peopleDo not consider Monster.

    Advice to Management

    I would provide advice but they won't take it. They don't care.

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

    Pros

    Salary was high, work life balance was good, PTO was great - 4 weeks to start - making strides to get the marketing team better but still a while out

    Cons

    layoffs are constant and unannounced, upper management is all new and they all came from the same company, no real career path because people are getting laid off and not replaced - the company is a thing of the past and being taken over by competitors

    Company is poorly managed from the top, and is always poised to be sold. Creates an atmosphere of unrest. Frequent reduction in force lay-offs.
