I have been working at Taleo

Pros

Great product
Low price
Cool logo
Benefits rock
Base is good - this is all you will make which is why the SCs transferred from sales.

Cons

Management has no experience, especially senior management
Here are the territories: Nor Cal, So Cal, NY, IL, then ID/Montana/ND/SD, or WA/OR - so you're lucky and make money if you get a major market

Favoritism - this is embarrassing. One rep hit quota the whole year, and he had 3 territories.

Mid-market reps average about 50% of quota, so they are broke.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

No advice. Mike Gregoire told the company he was not selling the company. How do you fix liars?

    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!!!
