    I worked at TALX full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and comp plan, flexible hours, ability to work remote. Good grasp of what is happening in the current economy.

    Cons

    Service is provided under the guise of sales. Not looking for creative thinkers, want followers who adhere to cumbersome and frequently changing rules. Average work week 55 hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower employees and engage them in process improvements. Give new
    managers leadership classes.

    I have been working at TALX

    Pros

    I like the people I work with, I like the location and the opportunity to learn different aspects of business and technology.

    Cons

    there are a lot of processes that don't make sense and it happens a lot because of the many changes that take place on a regular basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees who run the process and take ideas to make things more efficient for everyone. Other than that things are pretty good.
