"I have worked for Monster Worldwide for 2 + years. It is a very high paced, high energy work environment that enables an employee to have a very profitable sales career. The training is excellent and it is a really great company to grow a sales career. I would encourage anyone that is looking for more experience in the .com industry to look for employment there."

"I've been with Monster for 13+ years. I started before the bubble broke. I've seen good times and I've seen bad times. I can honestly say I loved my job. With recent business decisions, I have only started to look for a new job. I understand what the company has to do. They are doing what is best for the company, stock holders etc etc. It just does not work for me."

What do you like about working at Monster.com?

"Great name recognition based on decade of Internet leadership. Historically valuable."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

What don't you like about working at Monster.com?

"Senior management is not trustworthy, has failed vision, no direction, has underperformed for past 5+ years."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Fire the CEO and his cronies and bring in people who know the industry. Set a mission to be a great place to work, and practice what you should be preaching."

"Increase autonomy, decrease micromanagement, enable teams to make their own decisions and take acceptable risks when subjectivity is the only real metric."

"Extremely dysfunctional company operating in panic mode."

What do you like about working at Monster.com?

"It pays many people very well for what their job is -- too well."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Consider it only as a short-term option. This company isn't in it for the long haul."

What don't you like about working at Monster.com?

"The teams I worked on were extremely dysfunctional, full of petty in-fighting, a lack of cooperation, an obsession with innovative brainstorming while never actually doing any work. Group-think, far too many stakeholders on every project, a complete lack of understanding at higher levels of how a modern Internet company should work. This company is lumbering along into extinction."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"The management team demands sycophants and yes-men, and there is high turnover in mid-management: in one year, I had three managers (one got fired in a fit of anger, one quit in a fit of anger)."

What do you like about working at Monster.com?
