Great people, great market and customers, compelling solutions, good promotion opportunities if you're a top performer, great learning opportunities

Sometimes it appears the company is not as nimble as it can be to compete in the market with aggressive niche players

None, given at the time of this review the change in control to Oracle has occurred and Taleo is now a subsidiary.

    Current Employee - Regional Sales Manager in San Francisco, CA

    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?

    Disapproves of CEO
