3. Monster: Help WantedIt's getting really ugly at Monster ( MNST). The New York-based online jobs company announced its latest management shake-up this week. Monster said goodbye to finance chief Lanny Baker and hired former Symbol Technologies exec Tim Yates to replace him. Yates joins his former Symbol colleague Sal Iannuzzi, who earlier this year was brought in as Monster's third CEO in a year. Founder Andrew McKelvey left under a stock-option backdating cloud late in 2006, and his successor William Pastore departed in April "by mutual agreement with the board." By now, though, Monster is scaring lots of execs away. On Wednesday, Iannuzzi unveiled a "business realignment" that will "facilitate quality customer service while providing our associates with an environment that will encourage and foster success." One person who won't be part of that environment is Doug Klinger, formerly president of Careers North America. Monster said he'll leave to pursue other career opportunities. All the executive-suite shuffling might seem unnerving, but Iannuzzi counsels calm. "Monster Worldwide has experienced significant growth and has evolved into a true global business," Iannuzzi said in a press release Wednesday afternoon. "We are fortunate to make this important realignment from a position of strength." Imagine what Monster might do in a position of weakness. Dumb-o-Meter score: 85. "Our goal," Iannuzzi continues, "is to build a company that can produce value-added, innovative solutions for our customers and sustainable growth for our shareholders over the long term."
