    Pros

    CareerBuilder is striving to perfect HR software. There is a strong sense of duty to get it right for the customer and stay focused on solving problems. There is a tireless drive to innovate on every level.

    Cons

    Low pay and lack of equity in the company. It may leave many dedicated employees feeling short changed if the company did one day go public. The big exit will come to a small group of executives and stakeholders.
