Once a great place, now feels like a dead end.

Pros

Good benefits, Competitive pay, Casual Environment

Cons

Forget career growth if you don't work at head quarters in Dublin California. Top level management and representation at Jacksonville FL office is non-existent. It feels like only a matter of time before Taleo shuts down all R and D in Jacksonville FL. Very slow turn around time if you need something from other teams, especially in the QC office.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Realize that relocating all R and D to Silicone Valley is going to come back to bite you. Your top talent is going to get poached or move to other companies, only mediocre will remain. You are pushing away a lot of talent that wants to be here.

Your a software company, don't outsource the heart of you business!!!

    Great at first, but no transparency contributes to rumor and speculation

    Pros

    Great benefits. Agile. They treat you like an adult. Desire to be innovative. It is a hard to think of anything else.

    Cons

    Very secretive of important matters. Too top heavy with a countless assortment of VPs. Tout innovation, but do not deliver or give true incentive to innovate. Does a horrid job retaining its top talent, especially for a company that sells "talent intelligence".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hitting on all the buzz words and start innovating. Listen to your employees. Redesign and rewrite your products. Stop lowballing people you need to help your company thrive.

    Pros

    Work with some great people

    Cons

    After it's acquisition of Vurv, the vibrant atmosphere of the office was lost and replaced by an overall sense of humdrum.
    Too many layers of management for my taste.
