It's been OVER - the company will never grow again and revenue will continue to go down....it has since I've started saying that. The best hope is Monster cable buys the domain name for $100M in the end.
Pretty much all you do is complain about me - why don't you dish out the gold on how much revenue is up or how the new products are working....oh that's right it's OVER!
At least I have passion - you are just bitter because you work for a loser company.
It doesn't matter if Monster isn't showing up on Yahoo. All The People, All The Jobs isn't working. Ask MM if the postings are working.
Yet something else they scrap because it is not working. Well...FIX IT! Even if it was not cost effective, it was still a revenue source. They have been paring down so many revenue streams they will slowly shrink into extinction. They are just looking for a profitable company right now so they can keep their jobs. This is just temporary because their competitors are EXPANDING. This is a market that you expand your business, not shrink it. As I mentioned, as the revenues fall, they will become nothing but a small niche company that will be looking to sell off the parts that are still turning a profit at the end. They can no longer compete.
Yahoo no longer has Monster listed as the job site - in fact they don't have any job site stuff on the main page and when you search jobs on Yahoo - Monster is way down on the list?
Does anyone know what Monster was paying for the traffic deal and how much traffic did it generate?
On the plus side it should free up some marketing dollars - but Monster traditionally just been reducing marketing spend quarter after quarter because of their increased efficiency - not sure I believe that.
On the negative side it means less traffic which could explain some of the Alexa numbers that have been dropping.
Of course no press release or announcement likely means it's not in Monsters best interest.
Somebody in the know - enlighten us!
Funny, I thought someone wrote a reply. Oh well, I guess get_a_life_salpleasego once again violated community guidelines. Amazing how he consistently breaks the rules. Maybe that is why he is a good employee for Monster...constant rule breaker full of lies.
As crazy as it sounds, I think we will start to rise. The Q should be coming out around Aug 3rd. Usually this is a bad quarter for business. 1st quarter is when they spend the most money and renew contracts. So it is a little more challenging to get proposals past purchasing. Seeing that they were down YOY by 14 million in the first quarter, I thinking they could be down by more this quarter. There has be a LOT of turnover. Also, they have been following up on layoffs. As I mentioned, those that have their jobs, are spending more time looking for a job than working. Needless to say productivity is WAY down. It was this time last year they had their big product launch...that failed. Many of the big clients that tried the new technology from last year are not renewing. The next two quarters should be absolutely horrible.
You would think that corporations would learn from the mistake of the other big names that failed. Oh well, I guess when your ego is that big...well it can never happen to you.
Oh and once again you violate community guidelines. Let's see how long before your comment is deleted. And you are wrong about field sales being up this quarter.
Seriously you need to focus on your new job! Why you post on here is beyond me. You have no skin in the game and no nothing about this business. I think just maybe that was why you were fired! New products have gone well, and field sales are way up this Q. Get a life man.
You go through all the trouble of creating an ID and that's the best zinger you can up with. Come on you can do better?
If we say the same thing over and over and it comes true (which it does) than change the story and maybe your dreams will come true?
You nailed it! One of the biggest complaints of Monster from both a seeker and employers. The employers don't like the fact that ANYONE can apply for the positions. If they require and education, they do not want their posting to be visible to anyone without an education. On the seeker side, if they want a base salary, they do not want to be carpet bombed by all the 1099 positions. You can't set any controls. You would think that would be simple with all their great technology. Oh that's right, they would have to LISTEN to the customer rather than coming up with ideas that they think are brilliant.
Number 1 problem with job market is it's too easy to apply for a job so companies are overwhelmed.
All the job companies making big strides are making it harder - linked you search for what you want - dice creates custom boards..........what does Monster do - ALL THE JOBS FOR ALL THE PEOPLE - let's make it even easier to apply for jobs you aren't qualified for.
The definition of IDIOT is a Monster 'C' level exec.
One week left - let's push people need that pizza.
$175M in revenue is what has been telegraphed - yes Monster still uses those and typewriter - but I think it's more like $170....but that might mean less than $700M in revenue for the year.
Indeed doubled revenue overseas this year - nobody else had problem either except for Monster.
Tick Tock - OVER - Save the company not your bonus!
