    Pros

    Monster’s one of the few places that you allow you to apply the PM structure of your training. Projects typically have PM, Product Mgr, Scrum, Analysts with defined roles allowing you to apply and develop what you’ve learned and not overload w/ double or triple duties.

    Cons

    Though it sounds organized, there’s a lot of turnover due to clickish behavior and growth isn’t available. So get what you need and move on. No more than 2yrs should be spent there.

    Pros

    100% remote Great co-workers Fun environment

    Cons

    Pay is not fair. When employees leave, they almost always “owe” the company over payment. The books are poorly aligned. Quota - adding growth when renewal rates are declining Internal processes need improvement Lay offs and teams are lean which creates bigger work loads for those that are left. If you go against status quo you are not coachable and giving push back. You are only as good as your last sale In a company that’s declining and having lots of Performance issues with technology they somehow manage to blame reps Unhappy customers do not get any refunds even if their job post had zero views and zero applies. No career path.
