    I have been working at Monster Worldwide full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good health care benefits, certainly better than the ones I had at IBM.
    Better 401K distribution and matching than them also.
    Incredibly smart people.
    Amazing Technology Stack from Cloud, to Career Websites, to Cognitive, Semantic Search, AI, Machine Learning, Bullhorn integration, and the list goes on and on.
    They are willing to make the changes needed to get the company back on track.
    Randstad, who acquired them in 2016, is committed to their success.
    In a position to disrupt the marketplace.

    Cons

    Tech stack is a little "over populated" and disconnected.
    They are rolling in a lot of new leadership which is always a bit painful.
    It will most likely take a few months or quarters to discover and clean up issues so they have a clear path in 2018.
    2017 is a rebuilding year.

    Advice to Management

    Job postings and search licenses are a dying service. Focus on the tech stack and getting a clear GTM strategy that packages relevant technologies together for the benefit of the client. Stay client focused and treat the employees like gold for hanging in there during the difficult times to come.

    Pros

    -Great Base Salary
    -Great Commission payouts
    -decent health benefits
    -acquired by Randstad ($40B company) worldwide-great backing!

    Cons

    -no consistantly-if one thing doesnt work within 3 months they try something else, the executive team needs to let things blossom
    -changes in management is frequent
    -changes with accounts happens quarterly or yearly, customers like continuity

    Advice to Management

    Get advice from your motor of the company the account managers before changes are made.

    I have been working at Monster Worldwide full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They are a well-established company, with good benefits, I like that the development team has a maturity to it, they are no longer looking for "rockstars" or "ninjas", they hire real people who have a life outside of work. all co-workers are senior, and the culture is to teach not judge, it's a nice place to work.

    Cons

    they were just sold to Randstad after a long period of downsizing, they could use a little direction and or a refreshed mission.

    Advice to Management

    be bold, take chances. the team is ready and able to pull it off.

    I worked at Monster Worldwide full-time

    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.
