Pros

Winning is part of the culture. Good balance of innovation and execution. Most important reason for Taleo being a great place to work is the talent management space which is exciting and growing fast and Taleo's position in that space.

Cons

Fast growth and emerging technology always brings challenges and a lot of pressure but that's what you sign up for when joining Taleo. Company is quite distributed for its size so expect to spend a lot of time on the phone, on Webex and in planes. No real surprises here.

Advice to Management

Do not lose long term focus, this is what made Taleo successful.

    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 Management

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