    I worked at Monster Worldwide full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Salary was high, work life balance was good, PTO was great - 4 weeks to start - making strides to get the marketing team better but still a while out

    Cons

    layoffs are constant and unannounced, upper management is all new and they all came from the same company, no real career path because people are getting laid off and not replaced - the company is a thing of the past and being taken over by competitors

    I worked at Monster Worldwide for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The benefits is Monster like employer contribution in the provident fund and the medical insurance.

    Cons

    The politics in the upper management and company's leadership. The unfair promotions to some people. The layoffs that started since the company was acquired by Randstand. Unskilled engineers given important technical responsibility and incompetent managers who don't care about the careers of their employees. They only focus on playing the politics game of the upper management.

    "Very Poor Upper Management But Good Lower Level Employees"

    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

    I worked at Monster Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    1. The fact that despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary some of the employees still believe this company isn’t drowning.

    Cons

    1. Lack of leadership. 2. Lack of training. 3. Zero support from upper management and HR. 4. Company hasn’t met it’s revenue goal in over a year. 5. Terrible benefits packages - both for families and singles. 6. Zero employee engagement - we watch while BioGen hosts event after event. 7. Employees are expected to work overtime for minimum, base pay.

    Pros

    You'll leave on time and you'll never work nights...

    Cons

    I've worked for several organizations throughout my career and Monster is right near the top as far as most poorly run. Upper management has no idea what they're doing, there is no pride in work, the culture is a disgrace, product managers have no idea what customers want and have no interest in asking because they think they know everything. The sales people are some of the laziest I have ever worked with and they have about 1000 too many of them. Monster never diversified and fell so far behind their competition that they will probably never recover which is why they were purchased for next to nothing by Randstad. I was there for 2 years and after just a few short months I knew major changes would eventually come and that I would be laid off. Like Nostradamus, I was correct.
