Global Training Coordinator/Universal Agent (Former Employee), Florence, SC – December 15, 2014
Pros: benefits, compensation
Cons: head in the sand management
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 – more... of their bad decisions, but still not listening. Hmmmmmm. Coworkers are great. Pay is average/above average for the area and benefits are excellent. – less

Global Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Florence, SC – May 20, 2014
In my opinion, Monster is a great place to grow and learn. Each day is a new experience to meet new people over the phone. My typical day at work is laid back. I thought that the hardest part of my job would be learning new material but it is not at all. I love helping mentoring new hires for the training classes.
Order Entry Administrator (Current Employee), Florence, SC – May 5, 2014
Pros: very laid back work environment, and free coffee.
Cons: salary really sucks
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 – more... than likely you won't advance. – less
Product Manager (Current Employee), New York, NY – April 7, 2014
The upper management isn't interested in anything new or innovative. We mainly work on things we know won't work and are constantly stuck in lengthy process. There is no team work and the overall company feels like its heading down.
Executive Assistant (Current Employee), Weston, MA – March 5, 2014
Pros: flexible schedule
Cons: difficult working environment, never thanked - always put down....out of touch with technology
Monster is an extremely difficult company to work at. They have been around for a number of years, but run it like a VC. The executive staff is more concerned with titles, and getting people than taking the company to the next level. I would have given Management/Culture a zero but it wasn't a choice. The culture is horrible - it is more of a "gotcha" – more... vs. "nice job" – less
