    I have been working at Monster Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    Nice building, good food in the cafeteria.

    Cons

    Everyone is paranoid, no trust, employees are miserable

    Advice to Management

    Don't continue to hire senior people with no skills or interest in the employees they manage. Talent Fusion was great-now it's a joke and all of us are miserable.

    Pros

    Household brand struggling to regain it's place in a highly competitive space. Sales people have a number of solutions to address their clients business drivers including RPO services, Cloud/SaaS solutions and a robust digital recruitment and media offering.

    Cons

    Perception of the value proposition as a "job board" with performance challenges rather than an understanding of the true scope of services offered to clients. Volatility and lack of clarity around go-to-market strategy. No CEO or experienced executive leadership team.

    I worked at Monster Worldwide full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    the pay was wonderful for over 8 years, generous commission and base salary. This was the only reason I stayed for over 8 years.

    Cons

    management: not helpful, no career path, no opportunity to grow with the company despite many attempts to grow my career here. they would hire managers from outside the company only to have them leave a few months later and not replace them. Very dysfunctional management. After almost 9 years of service to this company. No attempts to get to know employees in other cities, too many layers of management which allowed all managers to distance themselves from employees more and more.

    Advice to Management

    Your customers should be your continued focus, making sure you are staying ahead of the competition and not missing the mark on how to do that which was the case for so many years. do right by the customer without the customers having to fight for it.

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

    Pros

    Even though the Management of this company is the worst I have ever seen, the mid and low level employees are some of the best people I have ever met. Not sure how they keep their positive attitudes in such a toxic environment.

    Cons

    This is a company going down hill very fast. Each time they miss their numbers, another round of layoffs is scheduled. They continue to hire new leaders and pay them more money than they have ever made before thinking this is the solution. I do feel bad for the people still there.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people like human beings and not a number on a spreadsheet. The solution is not always to lay off people if you have 1 or 2 bad quarters. And maybe don't pay so much for all these new "leaders". I give the company 2-3 years at best.
