    I worked at Monster Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    The company has a great payment and incentive program. The kitchen is nice to have with a fully operational Keurig machine.

    Cons

    The health care benefits are poor. The deductible limit is very high and the choices are not great to choose from. The training is problem. Needs to have more focus on training rather than the products.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to fix the training program new hires are put through. Also renegotiate the benefits package to have better choices.

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

    Pros

    definitely the best gig in my area, room for growth, pay is also decent. Working in a sales environment that is challenging and always changing.

    Cons

    being out-performed by competition, and fighting against ourselves for sales, lack of marketing/advertising for ourselves had lead to people especially the emerging workforce to not knowing our brand or what we do

    Advice to Management

    invest more time/money in sales training for employees, not product training but sales training, advertise on tv again even if just a little.

    Salary and commission are very attractive. Company was recently aquired by Randstad, much more progressive leadership team.
