    Pros

    Taleo was the pro. Best company ever worked for. Plenty of job opportunities. Taleo believed in giving opportunities to employees.

    Cons

    Biggest challenge at Taleo was training/knowledge of employees - getting new hires up to speed. The job as an IC also wasn't that great. Not much support provided.

    Advice to Management

    NA. Company doesn't exist any more.

    Pros

    -Energy & Passion -Hot Market (Talent Management Software Market is heated and growing) -Ability to Make an Impact on Millions of Users (e.g. getting hired, getting rewarded & growing their career) -Responsible growth. Taleo is growing significantly and is profitable.

    Cons

    All the normal challenges you might imagine at a growing company (e.g. communication, intensive work cycles periodically). Some teams are highly dispersed geographically, although there is a renewed focus to do a better job of co-locating teams.

    Pros

    The 'bozo factor' at Taleo is quite low Taleo has great momentum in the market Taleo is well positioned to be lead the emerging Talent Management space Taleo's fast growth creates many opportunities Although most of us work fairly hard, many managers are flexible about scheduling and working from home

    Cons

    Taleo is more decentralized than many similar sized companies which results in some communication challenges Taleo's internal communication and knowledge management systems could be much better

    Advice to Management

    We focus strongly on profitability but we're in a land grab market where our largest competitor has double our valuation, less revenue, almost no profit but significantly faster growth. We should be more willing to offer deals on implementation services and first year fees to grow more quickly.

    Pros

    Taleo is a fantastic place to work, be it early or late in your career. Filled with extremely smart peopel, dedicated to making Taleo successful. Management is the most strategic in the space and has set this company up to own the on-deman talent management space for years to come.

    Cons

    You gotta want to work hard if you want to work at Taleo, which is not really a negative at all. 401k could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    Winning is part of the culture. Good balance of innovation and execution. Most important reason for Taleo being a great place to work is the talent management space which is exciting and growing fast and Taleo's position in that space.

    Cons

    Fast growth and emerging technology always brings challenges and a lot of pressure but that's what you sign up for when joining Taleo. Company is quite distributed for its size so expect to spend a lot of time on the phone, on Webex and in planes. No real surprises here.

    Advice to Management

    Do not lose long term focus, this is what made Taleo successful.
