    I have been working at Taleo

    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.

    I worked at Taleo

    Pros

    Taleo offers good benifits, that's all.

    Cons

    Taleo wants to be a "talent management" company but has no internal processes around managing it's own talent. Advancement is around who you know and not how you perform. Salary is based on how underpaid they think they can get away with. Training is non-existent. And leadership integrity is very low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure your leadership teams to put real leaders in charge. Restructure your culture so talent identification and utilization is in the forefront. Promote and reward based on real achievements.
