    I have been working at CareerBuilder full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    True sales culture. Some great leaders, amazing Kick-off and Presidents club trips. Moving toward a data solutions company and has some exciting new products.

    Cons

    Executive leadership doesn't get "good" information. Management feeds them what they want to hear. Often times it seems that selling to customers takes a back seat to the internal red tape that exist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a solution to stop turnover of senior reps.
