    I have been working at TalentWise as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    This is a company that treats their employees well. Everyone is friendly and very helpful in answering questions and it's a great team effort. The communication from management is excellent so you always know what's going on and what changes are coming. Management is quick to recognize you for your work and they are also quick to give helpful feedback on things that can be done to improve the quality of work. The thing that I found to be so great about the company is that new hires are given an entire week of training so that everyone is on the same page and we're all clear on what our job is and how to do it. They hire a lot of recent college grads. Also, potlucks, free beverages, low priced food available in the break room, and employee appreciation weeks are great perks.

    Cons

    The pay could be better but it's not bad for an entry level position.

    Pros

    - The intrinsic values of the leadership team are that they are not only passionate about the product but care about the people. Supportive, highly capable and intelligent leadership team.
    - Encouraged and expected to take risks, make decisions; build and own your resources, your team, your plan, your budget, and run your department.
    - Having the ability to sit at the table with the leadership team, be heard and receive their valuable insights.
    - Employees at TalentWise are some of the most capable, hard-working, fun, open and honest I have ever worked with.
    - Working on a product I am passionate about – one that is unique to the industry and a process-driven cloud solution. With TalentWise Hire I take great pride in knowing I’m helping to create a positive impact to HR professionals, hiring managers, job candidates & new hires.
    - Organization engages in and encourages open and honest dialog. An environment of collaboration yet achieves speedy and timely decision-making. Fresh ideas are encouraged, freely spoken and seriously considered.
    - Benefits and salary are right in line with other software companies in the Seattle area, and management & HR do a very good job of ensuring that.

    Cons

    There is so much one can do - it's up to each of us to identify what moves the needle most - to prioritize, to stay focused, to not take on more than you can chew to avoid not being able to make impact. If you need help, you craft a plan & go after the support you need.

    I have been working at TalentWise full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I have worked here for TalentWise since the beginning of the year and have been continually challenged to grow as a professional and develop my skill as a sales person. Something hard to come by is a team that actually cares about each others success and does all it can to make sure you can become your best. I have learned more and grown more here than at any other organization. Plus, they are growing super fast and creating new jobs out of thin air! So, if you work hard this is a great place to move up quick!

    Cons

    The company seems to get together for fun events to much :(

    I have been working at TalentWise

    Pros

    TalentWise provides background screenings, and my work here makes me feel like I'm really making a difference in the workplace for other companies. I've worn a number of hats here and the opportunity to grow both personally and professionally is VERY apparent. Everyone here is very supportive and friendly. I have held jobs before that make me dread waking up in the morning to go to work, and TalentWise is the complete opposite. I know that what we're doing here is actually helping other organizations be safe in their hiring practices and it makes something I can get behind. I have enabled my friends and colleagues to interview and join our team and I would recommend the atmosphere and work environment to ANYONE I wanted to work with.

    All parts of management are extremely involved with all parts of the company. All of the C-Level executives are on the floor every day making sure all employees are happy and are engaged with day-to-day processes, even helping much lower-level employees where needed.

    Cons

    The work can occasionally be overwhelming. Like any smaller company, often times there is more work to be done than just your job, but it all pushes the organization forward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Personally, I think the management is doing an excellent job at creating a friendly work environment that makes everyone want to come to work every day.

    I have been working at TalentWise full-time

    Pros

    Very challenging environment to work in but at the same time it is extremely rewarding. I am the kind of person that needs a challenge to be successful and TalentWise is just that. Everyone is extremely concerned about your personal success from senior management to your local manager. Candidly, this is the best company I have ever worked for! With revenue and employee's growing at 50% per annum, opportunities are always presenting themselves and allowing you to transition to your next role very fast. Everyone here in Bothell is a pleasure to work with and I cannot think of a single thing I would change!

    Cons

    A little more guidance on our growth and projections for the next year would be a plus from senior management.

    Sometimes the coffee maker stops working...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up! When we get to be the size of HireWrong I would hate to see us lose our culture.
