I have been working at Taleo

Pros

Great people, good compensation. Some teams are closer than others but overall everyone is happy to work here. The company grew very methodically so there is no immediate danger of layoffs and job loss.

Cons

Be prepared to work long hours. Everyone is very smart so you are working along with people who are used to working very hard and smart. There is a lot of pressure to succeed and new hires know very quickly if they are not going to fit in. Others who like the environment stay long term.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The company seems top heavy and still hiring senior management and adding more management levels. Communicate more and listen to your teams.

    I worked at Taleo

    Pros

    Up and coming at the time... it was exciting to be in at the ground floor (this was just prior to them going Public). I also enjoyed visiting the Home Office in Quebec City, Canada. These are sincerely the only two good memories I have of my experience working for Taleo.

    Cons

    The management team is miserable. I've never been affiliated with such a bombastic group. Going through training as a new hire is like going to Boot Camp. Similarly, the Managers are like Drill Sargeants. From a complete lack of recognition, to unfair criticism - the management team (which has since turned over several times) never realized that there are better places to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay close attention to what can be learned from Exit Interviews.
