    Pros

    very strong foundation in the online recruitment industry

    The people. Monster has a great employee base and they made my time there worthwhile.

    The company was in a downward spiral so there was no real clarity on the future moving forward.

    Be more transparent.

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

    Pros

    Work life balance
    New leadership capable of making hard(right) decisions (after prior leadership refused to see the changing market)
    New parent company is a global leader in staffing

    Cons

    5 years revenue decline, no bonuses paid out during that time. Multiple waves of layoffs in 2017 as new parent company tries to fix the balance sheet.

    Advice to Management

    Stop tweaking the product portfolio (job ad, premium job ads, super job ads, etc.) It's time to make a hard turn toward new products/services. Start listening to clients!
