    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.

    Pros

    The people are amazing. Lots of opportunity and support to grow. Company values are important and encouraged. Benefits are outstanding and some of the best I've seen.

    Cons

    The pay is below the industry average, at least in the Atlanta area.

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

    Pros

    The company is innovating. Even if we have acquired some of the innovation from Broadbean and EMSI, there is a lot of innovation. The CEO is not taking us out of one space (job postings), but he is refocusing us into other spaces.

    Cons

    Growing pains. It is a longer sales cycle and a different conversation with the customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Customers want to buy from people they like and trust. A ppt deck is not always the best way to facilitate that.

    Pros

    Good place to start a sales career, as they will take about anyone who applies for the inside sales role. The training is great too, and will help you get the year experience you need to apply to other organizations.

    Cons

    When I started it was great to be able to make an impact on companies I worked with by showing them the value CareerBuilder provides as a job board. By the end of my 4th year though, I found myself being forced to sell "saas" products to companies in order to keep from being fired. Most of the time these software solutions did not work, and were not wanted.

    I watched people come from other organizations after being sold the dream of CB, only to be put on plan after 3 months because they had a bad book of business and were slated to be fired. When you are doing well they will love you, but when you wake up tomorrow, you quickly realize that no one cares what you did the previous month.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put people in Director level positions that people WANT to work for. Respect should be earned, not demanded.
