    J'ai travaillé chez Monster Worldwide en Contrat Permanent (Moins d'un an)

    Avantages

    I made some great friends while I was at Monster.
    The work hours are great. 8:30 - 5:30 M-F - not too many other places that have this.
    Ping Pong tables to take a break at

    Inconvénients

    - Sold on the ability to make $20,000 in commission and told that most people are making that.
     - In actuality you might his a bonus one month, but then you will tank the next month because you depleted your pipeline and you will owe that commission check back to them. I was only there 6 months and I owed them for 2 commission checks.
     - I had no confidence that the top corporate management had the ability to run a company.
     - Everyone there is delusional as to the performance of the products and the state of the company.

    J'ai travaillé chez Monster Worldwide en Contrat Permanent (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    I made a few wonderful connections. Lunch at month end.

    Inconvénients

    Unfortunately if you do not become a favorite quickly, you will not succeed or be recognized no matter how much you sell. Managers become friends with some of their team outside if the office and then bring special treatent of that person inside the office. They quickly become team leads or are given the opportunity to earn more money by working open territories even when they are no where close to their own goals. Some employees are allowed to take day after day off just to go play golf because of their connections and the amount of inner office relationships they have participated in. Other employees who never take time off unless a child is sick are talked down to and treated poorly for asking for a day off. And God forbid you have an emergency or death the last week of the month.

    Sales goals are poorly constructed and inflated to the point that hitting or getting close them ensures an even more unattainable goal the following year. And while the company wants you to drive sales, at the same time they refuse to work with you on any quota bearing sales for companies who may be out of business or have defaulted on payments. These sales are left in your quota even though there is absolutely no chance of that account renewing. You are only as good as your last month, abd then that doesn't always apply.you can have an amazing quarter, over 100% of goal, and ask for a day off and still be talked down to.

    Again the office politics, favoritism, and gossip is horrible. People will throw you under the bus to get ahead. There is no respect on this office.

    Conseils à la direction

    Re-evaluate your management and director.

    Come up with a better strategy for defining sales quotas.

    Cut out all favortism. Everyone should be held to the same reasonable standard of work.

    Respect employees work/life balance and understand that kids get sick and family members pass away. (I know someone who's family member passed away and while HR said yes she gets 3 days the manager pushed so hard she thought he would fire her that month if she didn't hit goal. She only took a half day to attend the funeral. Also she hit goal each month and hit this month. That's just how nasty the manager spoke to her.)

    Also I want to point out that my review does reflect concerns that I spoke to management and HR about. Nothing was done which inevitably lead to me finding a new position. This review is a warning that while Florence does not have many good opportunities, there are better choices than Monster unless you want to play political games and sleep around to get to the top. Also Monster should do as many employers do and monitor their reviews. It not only shines a poor light on the company for possible employes but also their customer base. There are many companies who prior to doing business with another company will checlout Glassdoor, so up your game Monster.

    J'ai travaillé chez Monster Worldwide en Contrat Permanent (Pendant plus de 5 ans)

    Avantages

    The camaraderie was fantastic among the sales representatives. The pay was decent, benefits were ok as well.

    Inconvénients

    Where to start? The quotas are far from realistic. Upper management was lousy. No direction. Also apparently oblivious to competitors that are gaining footage in the market, and surpassing the quality of technology. Headed down hill rapid.. Compare stock prices, verses competitors. That should tell you something right there!

    Conseils à la direction

    Get a clue about your market and competitors.

    Avantages

    The company is headed in a very positive direction. No job is perfect but it's all about your perspective. Your choice of whether the glass is half full or half empty. Your choice to work there and your choice to make the best of that decision.

    Inconvénients

    Petty people trying to spoil it for the rest of us who have positive outlooks on what we CHOSE as a career. We can't expect perfection in a place when we ourselves aren't perfect beings.

    Conseils à la direction

    Keep doing what you do. I appreciate how successful you've helped me become.

    Avantages

    Great Co Workers, Monster really knows how to hire good people to work with. Paid well for the Florence SC area. Great place to get experience to go work somewhere better. If it hadn't been for my time with monster I wouldn't have my current position which I love.

    Inconvénients

    I worked in the Florence SC Office and I can only speak for THIS office! Management is stressed to the max and doesn't communicate with the reps about what needs to be done. The focus switched from being about sales to you better be making those 75 calls a day or else. It doesn't matter if you hit quota of not they don't treat you any better. I was a top performing rep with one of the highest quotas in the center and my manager would come to me and expect me to make more to cover the slack from other team members. If I've already hit my $80,000 for the month you can't expect me to haul in that much more to cover for under performing co workers. If they're under performing let them go and replace them. Very VERY poor communication although you could tell the atmosphere in this office changed no one really knew why or what we could do and not do anymore since many rules changed. When I started working here I worked independently with very little supervision, if a question came up and I needed assistance I could go to colleagues or my manager or other managers in his absence. After the first year this was a big no no. One manager allowed one thing while others did not. There was no consensus for what could and could not be done. In my last few months I felt my job wasn't even needed truly because I couldn't even make a sale without approval from the manager, director, CEO, Pricing team, the legal department and so forth. It became ridiculous how many channels a sale had to go through just to be approved. I lost a $30,000 sale because it took 3 weeks for approvals on the sale. Not to mention I tried to starting on this early and was repeatedly ignored by my manger until the very last minute. Another big problem came from the introduction of the new products in the last 6 months of so. It wasn't about finding customers that needed these services it was about shoving them down their throats until they bought them or walked away. I lost 2 larger sales because the customer didn't want the Twitter Cards($150) so my manager wouldn't approve the deals which were $10,000 or more. Personally I think it's stupid to let deals like that walk away over $150 product. I was literally told as a direct quote from my supervisor that these products needed to be on every quote whether the customer wanted the products or not. To me this is a big issue. I'm responsible for the renewal next year and if I give you products you don't need, wants or use you will NOT renew next year. Those are simple facts.

    Conseils à la direction

    Communication, bring back a decent working environment, stop threatening to fire people you can't afford to lose and get rid of those that are bringing you down. Put set rules in place and if sales have to go through so many channels just get rid of your sales reps and have the managers handle everything because that is what it seems to be trending to anyways. Starting worrying about the customer instead of the number and maybe the stock prices will stop tanking. No one wants to be sold but everyone wants to buy SO STOP TRYING TO FORCE PEOPLE INTO THINGS THEY DONT WANT. That's how Monster got into trouble in the first place.

    Avantages

    good work life balance, we are a team and act like one, great pay for the location, if you bust your butt it is easy to move up in the company.

    Inconvénients

    the end of month/end of quarter is always hard in sales, but that is what you should live for. You may put it 10 hour days, but it will pay off.

    Conseils à la direction

    the advances are great, keep 'em coming!
