Technology experts

SE At B'lore Office - Ex Employee Now (Former Employee)
Bangalore

I worked at CareerBuilder

ProsLet me first make this clear that CareerBuilder is the only product of it's kind in the industry.
- What ever I've learned so far in my career of 4-5 years is completely due to these guys.
- During these times, I worked with two direct teams; experience has been phenomenal with the technology wizards.
- No tech teams in this industry has got the tech experts as careerBuilder has.
- Excellent architecture.
- Openness in the culture.,Excellent guys to work with.
- The kind of technical depth Norcross office people have is exceptional.
- Belief in lean philosophy; this has impressed me the most.
- has a great vision, and strives constantly to move towards that.

I'll always cherish all those days I've worked with you guys. Hats off to you guys.

ConsThis applies to Offshoring team only -
- Why doesn't the CareerBuilder has a direct say in the appraisals done at Bangalore office?
- There was no way till I was there; to identify performers from non-performers; everybody got the same hike every year. I also saw a lot of favoritism being involved in the India teams managers.

I don't see any cons with careerbuilder.com. Instead I would say that I would love it to be back with CaeerBuilder; but not at this moment. I want you guys to be more smarter in handling and involving yourself more at deeper levels with offshoring teams.

Advice to Senior Managementwell, this isn't merely an advice, it's something that would benefit you guys for a long term ; if you can open development centers in France and China; how's the deal with a similar office in India. You should've done this atleast an year back.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Great Company

Client Advocate (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA (US)

I have been working at CareerBuilder full-time for less than a year

ProsThere are way too many pro's about this company to list, but a few of the majors:
Great work environment, benefits are absolutely amazing, exponential room for growth, management is completely open door and encouraging!

ConsThe only complaint I would have is that the base salaries are lower than industry standards, but the bonus structure and benefits make up for it!

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue leading and building the way you are. Great company values!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

A great sales building block with a lot of upward opportunity

Account Executive (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL (US)

I have been working at CareerBuilder full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe company culture is by far the best things about working for CareerBuilder. There are a lot of company events/happy hours, half day Fridays in the summer, and TRIP. Trip was one of the best experiences of my life. A 1 week all expenses paid for you and a plus 1 to an exotic location. Everyone is really nice and will do anything they can to help you.

ConsActivity - hitting stupid metrics that do not necessarily result in sales to stay off "plan". Change is the only constant not that this is the worst thing in the world but sometimes changes are not communicated very well

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep evolving to keep up in the market place. Things have changed so much in the 3+ years since I have been here and in a great way!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great for learning and working with new technology

ProsGreat environment and great people. I'm faced with challenging new problems everyday so it's impossible for burnout. Great benefits with tons of learning opportunities. They really care about employees growing.

ConsCompensation is the only real complaint. It is below average and causes a lot great engineers to move to different companies.
