3 years in and still loving it!

Sales Manager (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL (US)

I have been working at CareerBuilder full-time for more than 3 years

ProsFantastic people, quick opportunities for advancement, high compensation, freedom to run your business the way you see fit! Benefits are amazing and products are state-of-the-art.

ConsFor some of the initial roles, there's a bit of hand-holding. But there has to be! As we move into software business, change is rapid and we've got to stay out in front of it. If agility isn't your thing, this might not be the sales company for you.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep allowing the disciplined freedom approach!

Great Company

Client Advocate (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA (US)

I have been working at CareerBuilder full-time for less than a year

ProsThere are way too many pro's about this company to list, but a few of the majors:
Great work environment, benefits are absolutely amazing, exponential room for growth, management is completely open door and encouraging!

ConsThe only complaint I would have is that the base salaries are lower than industry standards, but the bonus structure and benefits make up for it!

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue leading and building the way you are. Great company values!

A great sales building block with a lot of upward opportunity

Account Executive (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL (US)

I have been working at CareerBuilder full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe company culture is by far the best things about working for CareerBuilder. There are a lot of company events/happy hours, half day Fridays in the summer, and TRIP. Trip was one of the best experiences of my life. A 1 week all expenses paid for you and a plus 1 to an exotic location. Everyone is really nice and will do anything they can to help you.

ConsActivity - hitting stupid metrics that do not necessarily result in sales to stay off "plan". Change is the only constant not that this is the worst thing in the world but sometimes changes are not communicated very well

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep evolving to keep up in the market place. Things have changed so much in the 3+ years since I have been here and in a great way!

Great company culture!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at CareerBuilder full-time for more than 3 years

ProsFun and energetic environment and great company drive!

ConsIf you aren't in sales, you are NOT making the money that you want to be making. All departments are under paid BESIDES sales...

Advice to Senior ManagementEqual out the pay before you lose a good portion of quality employees in customer care...
