    I have been working at Talend as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people here are really amazing. I am relatively new and everyone I have come in contact with have been super helpful and incredibly nice. The company's products are top notch and smack bad in the middle of one of the hottest spaces in technology. A real international feel to the company. It is very cool to work with people in France, Germany, UK, etc. There are all the perks too! Let's put it this way - you will have a lot of fun and be fed very well :)

    Cons

    Like any fast growing company - there aren't a lot of process and policies. If you are looking for a really structured type environment then it isn't for you. Very entrepreneurial spirit here - and there is a lot of hard work involved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep us growing! It is exciting to be part of a company like Talend that really gets the "people" aspect.

    Pros

    Well run company that sells Big Data products. Everybody is enthusiastically pushing the company forward but still has time to have fun. Many take time out to play electronic basketball or ping pong. Colorful, comfortable new office is barely occupied. Many work remotely. No cubes here; just long tables, chairs, and Wi-Fi for laptops. The managers are experienced but are also enjoying the fun. Well stocked snacks, drinks, coffee, capuccino, espresso... Large kitchen has microwave, dishwasher, real dinnerware, 2 huge refrigerators. Just hired 100+.

    Cons

    Company having growing pains and business focus is unclear. CEO is controlling costs so catered lunches have been cut and hiring is frozen. Pay is low for contractors. Hard to estimate the business outlook. They sell B2B. CEO could be controlling costs because they genuinely want to take the company public or they could be having problems. Hard to say.

    Pros

    Talend offers a positive, team-oriented work environment. The company is pre-IPO, with revenue and customers, and competes successfully in a blistering hot space that’s only getting bigger. Net/net, if you get the opportunity to work here you should jump at the chance.

    Cons

    As you would expect from a company experiencing rapid growth, some internal systems and process are still being perfected. By the same token, lots of opportunities for employees to help shape them and impact the company’s broader trajectory.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to maintain an open dialog with employee base as the company grows, celebrate diversity and promote and recognize the efforts of individual contributors.

    Pros

    This is a worldwide organization with many talented people. If you get an opportunity to join this company, it's a great way to meet a very sharp international team and make an impact. Talend still has a startup feel. Everyone seems to want to come together and beat the competition and corporate games are minimal. If you have an idea for product enhancements or sales improvements, you can usually own it and take it on. The products are not smoke and mirrors, but really capable products that help companies get out from under expensive alternatives.

    Cons

    As some have mentioned, pay and benefits are the biggest con. Expect to have a good career at Talend, but don't expect outstanding benefits of some bigger companies.

    I have been working at Talend full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Growth, Learning, and Benefits.
    For those that work hard at Talend, fast growth is readily attainable. I've seen it take place and experienced it myself. Multiple Talendians have started off in the ADR department and ended up transitioning to a more prominent position later down the road. Sometimes this has been very quick, other times it's been a waiting process for something to open up. I'll mention a 3rd case, my case. For one of my promotions, a new position was created that would better exploit my skill set. This is a testament to Talend's outstanding management and ability to develop their own.

    In mentioning growth, I must also highlight how Talend lets you flourish in your learning and individual growth. At Talend, there are always possibilities to not only grow organizationally, but also to grow in knowledge and expand your own skill set. I have been encouraged to learn any and everything that interested me with regard to our product, my role, and my future. Typically, these areas where I have increased in knowledge have then been incorporated into my role.

    Lastly, Benefits are extremely good. I have a wife and multiple kids and all of us are covered at little additional out of pocket costs.

    Overall, I would highly recommend working here. Plus, if you're in the San Francisco valley, we just got a new, extremely nice office that you will love working out of.

    Cons

    Most of my time at Talend, we have been rapidly growing. While that's a good thing, with it comes growing pains. At times, there had been communication laps between management and the rest of the organization. This is improving, but there is still room to get better. I believe that these lapses in communication have allowed some bad decisions to be made that could have otherwise been prevented if more non-managerial employees had contributed.

    Secondly, again because of the quick growth, we tend to rush projects and implementations. From rushing, many times, we find ourselves having to work very long hours in order to meet a deadline and having to put out a lot of fires after the roll-out or completion of the project. That said, the aspect that evens this out for me is that the majority of employees are allowed the flexibility of working from home. This is a nice added bonus to working here.
