    I worked at Monster Worldwide as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are people across the business that you truly feel want to make Monster a success as a business and a brand. I was truly valued as an employee - even though I was a contractor (I was even awarded for my work) and I found this pushed me to deliver even greater work - other companies could learn from this by treating everyone the same.

    Although I chose to leave for personal reasons I would have happily stayed at Monster for a very long time.

    Cons

    None - go and be a Monster and get the career you deserve.

    Pros

    The people you work next to

    Cons

    The people above you, because they just don't care. The higher you go, the less humility exists.

    Advice to Management

    Change. Take your banker's attitude and leave.

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

    Pros

    Competitive start salaries, relaxed atmosphere, nice people to work with & Friday beer trolley.

    Cons

    Company is going downhill very fast, losing its talents as there's very little opportunities to progress or get a pay raise. Make sure to negotiate a good start salary, as you can forget about a pay boost unless you're ready to give your notice and leave. And that's if you very good. If you’re new and not in sales you are very likely to be made redundant. Monster employees live in constant fear and majority of them look to find something better and leave ASAP.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees, recognise and appreciate their work and help them to grow!

    I worked at Monster Worldwide full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Monster pay exceptionally well, and the incentives for sales guys are amazing, I won TV's, holidays and loads more. They have quite a dated product, and have not spent enough to improve this, and also should do more above the line marketing to get the brand out there.

    Cons

    They are aggressive with numbers, so targets are hard to hit and they push you hard. Plus they don't value there employees, even if they are very good.

    I have been working at Monster Worldwide full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Innovation - great products, market leader in technology and new product development
    Training - weekly and monthly training on products , selling, and side by site coaching
    Support - if you need support you will get it, the management love developing their staff
    The very best thing is the ££££££££££££££££££££££££ and the financial incentives you get for just doing you job are amazing as well as holidays (which I haven ever won) and great prizes which I have won lots of.
    I have always done field sales in the past, but since coming to Monster I make great money like I did in field sales with very little pressure or stress. You turn the sales around a lot quicker, over achievement bonuses are fantastic and this has allowed me to travel to places I had only ever seen in the movies!
    I seen this as an intern role, but its a long term career that I want to get here as the company is engaged in developing me as a person and also increasing their product solutions consistently by adding more products for our clients.
    Free fruit, great social committee with lots of nights out, lots of charity work for homeless shelters, food banks and hospitals in the area! You also win days off for hitting targets so last year I got over 30 days annual leave! Late starts and early finishes, nice team lunches and good atmosphere for birthdays, Christmas and holiday celebrations

    I had to have time off for personal reason due to family illness my Sales Manager and team were fantastic and supportive, I got all the time of I needed and didn't feel under pressure at all

    Cons

    As our product offerings are so vast there is problems in fully understanding how they can impact clients businesses as a benefit especially for new starts, but if you work hard and take the time to understanding the products it will be fine, the training does cover it.
    Some of the success express modules are too long - the induction can be shortened
    Would love client support teams in the UK

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the weekly and monthly training sessions - these are great whether you are new or have been with Monster for many years!

    Get a full time trainer in the Glasgow Office that covers all aspects of training so the structure is leaner and new starts get on the phones quicker!

    Keep the incentives going as this will ensure that the staff keep motivated to sell.
