Account Manager (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – June 9, 2016
Monster is a great place to work. They are really competing with an aging product and image. The solutions they offer clients are so vast that the sales teams struggle to fully understand and develop proper product mixes for clients. Hopefully businesses start seeing Monster as more than just a dusty job board and resume data base.
Internet Recruitment Consultant (Current Employee) – Florence, SC – January 20, 2016
An industry leader that has become a distant follower due to lack of innovation, vision and leadership that is now reactive instead of proactive. Work is stressful, management is in denial and almost everyone you talk to is looking for another job.
Excellent benefits package.
Micromanagement, high stress and quotas/goals that are increased by 30% year over year
Premium Service Representative (Current Employee) – Florence, SC – June 14, 2016
I manage Premium Tier accounts. While managing these accounts, I frequently provide usage data to customers and sales, implement purchase orders, research and resolve technical issues, onboard customers and/or sales at the time of renewal or a new purchase, provide backup support for team members that may be out of the office, review and present account information.
NAP sales intern (Former Employee) – Weston, MA – April 13, 2016
As a sales intern with Monster, I worked in the National Accounts Program which dealt with fortune 500 company accounts. I was responsible for marketing and promoting hiring solutions while providing weekly sales quotas. Dealing with all different types of personalities and scrutiny makes the job much more complex, but yet educational at the same time. This internship has improved my tolerance for rejection and my ability to persuade. Being able to read each customer and cater towards their individual preferences is a difficult skill to master, but yet one I am becoming more comfortable with.
Inside Sales (Former Employee) – Maynard, MA – February 3, 2016
This was probably my favorite job I've had the privilege to have worked for. This was an inside sales role which I worked as a medium between the prospective new customers and the IRC (Internet Recruitment Consultants) closed sales when able and assigned IRC according to territory. Was very much a college type environment. Majority of employees were between ages of 23-34 with many being their first job out of school.
Relaxed atmosphere very laid back, no over management of employees
Terrible company to work for- too much political junk
National Account Manager - Acquisitions (Former Employee) – Maynard, MA – March 3, 2016
This is a great paying job but Monster is a dying company with terrible management. They change the whole business model as fast as they can to remain above the water. Their stock is a mess and they are extremely political how they treat people. Back-stabbing is typical. You have to watch your back at all times.
Customer Service (Former Employee) – Massacusetts – November 19, 2012
I first started in customer service in 2007. The morale was great and they treated us with luncheons, seminars and the ability to get Microsoft Certified. The benefits and pay were good. The people I worked with were great!
I progressed quickly receiving two promotions. I tried advancing my knowledge and skills further. The first interview I was never notified about my candidacy. The second interview I was told I had the job and notified after that I didn't in fact receive the position.
All in all I believe Monster needs a new vision with investing in technologies and restructuring overall management from the bottom up. I hope to see this company go back to it's roots and become one of the best places to work in New England.
Global Training Coordinator/Universal Agent (Former Employee) – Florence, SC – December 15, 2014
This company is based around a caste system. Management at all levels are so busy CYA, they don't listen or try to make things better. It's almost like no one wants to bring the bad news to the king. I have been gone over 2 years and 2 years before I left we were trying to tell management what they needed to do to improve. Now they are seeing the results of their bad decisions, but still not listening. Hmmmmmm. Coworkers are great. Pay is average/above average for the area and benefits are excellent.
What a great company and what a great opportunity to work for them. Each member of the team has been supportative and each member of management is equally approachable. I have never worked for a company where they genuinely have an interest in how you are doing and what they can do for you. no negatives with this company, all positives!!
Monster had its day in the early 2000's, but their prime is becoming a smaller and smaller facade in the mirror. As the rest of the recruiting world moves forward with innovative (or at least riskier) products and features, Monster still feels, acts and sells like a job board.
There are a few good things about working at Monster: a) Clients still recognize the brand name
OK, maybe just one good thing.....
My Monster experiment was ill-conceived, and fortunately, I got out ASAP.
fair compensation, brand awareness
poor leadership, under-performing products, clueless management, culture of mediocrity
Sr. Talent Acquisition Consultant (Former Employee) – Weston, MA – January 29, 2016
I worked at Monster since July and had a great experience. I have been a client and user for many years and when I had the chance to come in and help grow the sales team, I jumped at it. I am sorry to be ending my contract assignment and would go back in a heartbeat.
Small Business Account Manager (Current Employee) – Florence, SC – February 11, 2015
Monster WorldWide is a great place to work. It is a stable company with room to grow and has a history of working and their products work! Management is strong and it is a fun place and enjoyable place to work everyday.
prizes, commission, benefits, free lunches and dinners at the end of the month.
Order Entry Administrator (Current Employee) – Florence, SC – May 5, 2014
Monster is a great place to work if your still living at home with your parents. The salary really sucks. The people are very friendly. It's like everyone is one big family. Monster is a very hard place to advance. Monster is one of those places where its not what you know its who you know. So if you are not in good with someone in a high place more than likely you won't advance.
