    Pros

    With several years at Talent Fusion, I have seen the company go through many challenges. The progress we have made through our current leadership has been made is outstanding! Our culture has transformed into a place where you no longer feel like you are behind closed doors. Leadership continues to share with us the conversations they are having about Talent Fusion at the top and our successes. Working remotely-the flexibility is awesome. My manager has created a great culture for my entire remote team and we are extremely collaborative. Learning-learning has not stopped, at all. My personal recruiting career has continued to grow due to leadership and teammates.

    Cons

    Nothing negative about Talent Fusion at this time.

    Pros

    I've always been well looked after at Monster. I've never worked with such a great bunch of people. The solutions aren't always an easy sell but I've always over-achieved against target and they reward hard work generously.

    Cons

    Lots of structural changes (for the better) but this can make things a little chaotic!
    Due to the above, career progression paths can be unclear. On the flip side it could create great opportunities to get involved and get noticed!

    Advice to Management

    Scott Gutz is a great appointment as CEO. Keep simplifying processes and keep putting the candidate experience first - everything else will follow!

    Pros

    Company is investing in people and technology again. Better direction and momentum with growth.

    Cons

    Technical tools have fallen behind competition, but getting better. We need advertising to support our place in the market. Support our brand of "helping people find jobs"

    Advice to Management

    We are behind competition in advertising, attracting job seekers. Our competition has strong name and branding. We need to get that back.

    Pros

    Compensation and opportunities to make additional spiffs.
    A lot of changes but the Leadership seems to have the right plan in place.

    At times, we focused more on certain products than a solution. Just need to keep solution as focus.

    We have a great team of dedicated employees and managers. They take good care of their employees. Lots of flexibility. Good commission structure. PTO is good and 401K. A lot of people willing to help you when needed. They are offering more training than before.

    Cons

    Fear of job security. Can we turn this ship around fast enough?

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on what you are currently doing. We are definitely headed in the right direction. We need to invest in advertising, advertising, did I mention advertising? Just like us cold calling for top of mind awareness, lets get commercials out there and focus heavy on the seeker side.
