    I have been working at Monster Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    - Lower level employees are great, nice, hard working, and know what they are doing
    - Some offices locations are pretty nice

    Cons

    - Upper management is in constant state of flux, resulting in no clear company direction
    - Company politics are prevalent, and can clearly be seen
    - Does not know how to invest in the teams that are keeping the company afloat, instead money is being put into hiring more management positions, and officers that are honestly not needed
    - Makes cuts on things that provide short term solutions rather then looking into how to invest in the future
    - Some office locations are not as good as other
    - Benefits exist but are absolutely abyssal for standards of 2018

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together. And figure it out. Stop hiring new officers, and just leave those positions unfilled. Put money into teams and people that are actually helping you keep afloat rather then just randomly blowing money away.

    - very poor communication & collaboration between teams and departments
    - archaic tools and practices; operates like a mid-90s company
    - no strategy on how to beat competitors' offerings, let alone stay afloat

    Advice to Management

    sell, sell, sell
