I have been working at CareerBuilder

Pros

- premium skill development platform
- rewards hard workers
- Cars.com + Groupon are two companies that actively sought to duplicate CareerBuilders entry level sales foRce success.

Cons

- Narrow Vision + Lack of Flexibility from the top leadership....
  Leadership has a round hole that they insist everyone fit into....
  End result is frustrated + demotivated sales teams.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The VBU does what you want it to do but I believe it's future+ long term success require a significant philosophical process change. The best reps in the VBU consistently report "hating their lives". Figure out a different productivity optimizer other than activity blahnonstop,

    Cons

    *Training program still being changed..

    *Software system we use doesnt always work

    *Satellite offices are not always as connected or similar to the main office

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    *Really highlight success stories and share with your targetted opportunity clients instead of making the rep search them out. You guys get communications I think we don't hear about!
