    I worked at Monster Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    Global company with excellent basic salary & great benefits. Some very inspiring individuals in the company! Beautiful offices in Glasgow City Centre.

    Cons

    Where to start...........Constantly having to justify myself as a female in the workplace, interrogated about my views on woman in the workplace, equality. Told outright men and women cannot do equal work, there are jobs that men do that women cannot, I wasn't in a position to challenge as on probation. This manager used their power to assert authority and from the start I felt uncomfortable but quietly and politely persevered! Humiliated, picked on, little room to engage in a two way conversation! Daily bashing about my predecessors and their failings including the most crude and disgusting comments particularly about one former employee, totally unacceptable! apparently both women who worked in the team before me were both nutters! Sexist misogynistic, totally unprofessional and vile! Heard the most vile derogatory word twice in one sentence last week, used to describe someone's skin tone and one which I won't repeat and definitely not used to hearing.......anywhere! Totally unprofessional, unacceptable and blatant disregard for following the basic rules of what is acceptable and not acceptable in the workplace.

    Advice to Management

    Words fail me! My experience, very disappointing I had high hopes and thought I was working for a modern forward thinking company with highest standards. Stunned at what I experienced and heard.

    I have been working at Monster Worldwide full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    In my previous sales roles I have been working weekends and late nights,so it's not a surprise that the flexible working hours between Monday and Friday is a massive selling point for me. It's refreshing to work in a friendly office where all staff have a willing to help and a management team who want you to succeed. Starting at the entry sales level there is some fantastic training and the opportunity to move up in a short period of time,if you put the effort in. The salary and ramp up platform is really good. It helps you learn the business and the opportunity to earn commision when hitting KPI'S and eventually revenue. Targets are achievable once you are up and running and there are some great incentives for hitting your quota. £££, days out etc.

    Cons

    For me, there aren't any yet. I took the decision to move away from 5 years plus B2C sales experience to get the work life balance I wanted but still in a sales role where I can make monthly commision and still get that buzz of a sale. Haven't looked back..
