    I have been working at CareerBuilder full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Fairly young atmosphere, good leaders, encouraging work environment, great educational opportunities to advance learning, good benefits and non-tangible benefits (happy hours, group outings each quarter, lunches, etc.). Opportunities to be heard and share your ideas.

    Cons

    Sales is definitely the name of the game. Primary focus is on all sales teams and everything is catered to those groups. Senior management across the company seems to be a "Boys Club"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I work on the Operations/Consulting side of CareerBuilder and feel like our knowledge is underutilized. Through the effort of our team, we are able to help secure repeat revenue, however the Sales Rep is the only person awarded for this effort. Spend time speaking with your non-sales teams to see how knowledgeable and helpful they may be in driving increased sales, and reward them too!

    Pros

    True sales culture. Some great leaders, amazing Kick-off and Presidents club trips. Moving toward a data solutions company and has some exciting new products.

    Cons

    Executive leadership doesn't get "good" information. Management feeds them what they want to hear. Often times it seems that selling to customers takes a back seat to the internal red tape that exist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a solution to stop turnover of senior reps.
