    Pros

    I've been working with CB for less than six months now, and I can tell this company has a great future. Great leadership, extremely friendly work culture and great perks if you're a performer. Awesome incentives and a chance to travel the world !

    Cons

    Not many, you do tend to put in longer work hours, however that's completely voluntary. The India product needs to improve, which I am sure will over the next few years!

    I worked at CareerBuilder

    Pros

    Let 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.

    Cons

    This 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 ManagementAdvice

    well, 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.

    I have been working at CareerBuilder

    Pros

    Work/Life Balance; Disciplined Freedom; lots of incentives and bonuses (company trip), summer hours, great culture. Strong compensation and benefits package. Lots of opportunity for career growth and development.

    Cons

    Is a good ol boys club at the top. Management is working to change some of the politics, but could do better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New direction is great. Culture is not as strong as it used to be and the competition in the marketplace is strong. Focus on your people if you want them to stay.

    I have been working at CareerBuilder full-time

    Pros

    Freedom, investment in employees, good compensation. There are very few people at the company who aren't fun to be around, almost everyone is willing to share their time. You can literally knock on the CEO's door to introduce yourself or ask a question.

    Cons

    Freedom to fly is freedom to fall. You have to take ownership of your own success if you are to ever be successful, and CB doesn't have mechanisms in place to save promising people who don't yet have all of the tools to do everything themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More free food?

    I have been working at CareerBuilder

    Pros

    Work/life balance is great. Lots of free food. Top technology in office and nice work spaces. Culture promotes growth and they cater to their employees

    Cons

    Lots of politics. Sales people can be real jerks to everyone else in other departments. They don't pay what you're worth for most positions. Disorganization present due to departmental changes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Before making changes, please be sure of not only the destination but the implementation of how to get there is just as important to maintain morale and for the entire company to not suffer significant losses.
