800 layoffs though :(

non-sales related. So my friends in IT will no doubt get slaughtered.

Good point Andrew. I didn't intend to be unsympathetic to the folks facing layoff.

My experience with Monster is that they have many levels of management ... making it very difficult to get a decision, and then, once a decision is made, with no individual feeling accountable.

So I'm hoping that the layoffs, while painful for all inside the company, will result in a more nimble company that will achieve greater success in the long run.

Time will tell.


Good luck to all of the new job seekers that Monster is releasing into the market the best of luck in their search. Hopefully they will be able to leverage all of the new resources available to job seekers to make their searches quick and fruitful. There are plenty of companies out there who will be more than happy to hire many of them given the fact that unemployment is so low right now.

Like it or not, Monster is a big company and sometimes (usually) that means that they pursue big company priorities. It was only a matter of time before the market they had been taking from for so many years reached back and re-claimed some of the share that Monster had been abusing via Interstital ads, and other practices that all of the job seeking and recruiting bloggers have been talking about for so long.
