Forged some fantastic relationships over the years, and did very well financially (most of my tenure).
The best way to describe Monster? They are the Titanic with a golfball-sized hole in its hull. It's taken quite some time to bring down a ship that big, but they have been sinking for years and they've finally sunk. Morale is at an all-time low, and even management is just going through the motions and biding their time to get out. I was there for 10+ years, and knew a lot of people (still do). Literally EVERY SINGLE person I know there was either recently laid off or is frantically looking for a new job. All the new IBM management that came into the company in 2015 either quit or was fired, as yet again it was a bunch of cowboys who thought they could turn things around (and then quickly realized it was hopeless and abandoned ship). So, to anyone considering working here - would you voluntarily get onto a ship that's headed towards the lip of Niagara Falls? Would you run into an empty, burning building? Of course not, and don't take a job here either. As other reviewers have said, from a sales role perspective, don't even THINK that you're going to be successful here - you won't be. The company is broken and dead in their space. Every employee at every single level is just waiting for another opportunity and then will leave. The people who aren't leaving are simply the hold-outs that are comfortable collecting a check and will need to be dragged out when the time comes. The company was acquired for a paltry $429M, a fraction of what the company was worth in its day. Most people in the know have a hunch that it will be dismantled soon, as there's no way Randstad is trying to breathe life into a dying, non-profitable brand (they bought it for its technology and database of resumes). Oh, and did I mention that in Q1, 2017, they completely screwed every single sales person that over-achieved their quotas? (there weren't many of them). They hid behind a caveat in their comp plan that allowed them to cap payouts, and by doing so they absolutely robbed their long-time, hard working employees of money that they'd earned. The verbiage in their comp plan technically made it legal, but boy was it immoral and wrong. The worst part is that they dangled a carrot in front of many of them, giving false hope that they'd eventually get paid out 'if they just wait a little longer,' but no one was paid was was rightfully owed to them. It was just a horrible ploy to avoid a mass exodus. Their senior leadership really put the 'Monster' in Monster.com with that sleazy move.35

Nice office; nice coworkers (for the most part).
I was unofficially promoted and took on a management position without a single pay increase for almost a year. Never got a formal, sit down review. Never got any praise. Never got any bonuses (even though they were promised to us). Never got the support or resources. Let me be clear here. I also went to Monster's HR department to ask questions regarding my employment, pending raise & promotion, etc. They told me to email the HR Business Partner. So I did. She then forwarded my confidential emails over to my direct boss and director of the department I worked under. I'm confused. How is this allowed? No one cares and no one supports you, no matter if it's HR or your direct manager. No events, no incentive, no reviews, no promotions, no reward. There's nothing. Here's a question: How can Monster.com, the website and company that is supposed to help people 'find better,' be such a failure to its own employees?10
