    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

    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

    There is a really strong team spirit, and you really feel like your opinions are taken seriously - whatever level of the company you work at. You are also given the opportunity to make an impact fast.

    Cons

    Salary could be better. And while things are improving, there are still some infrastructure problems to be dealt with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lose the hands-on start-up spirit as the company grows

    I have been working at Talend full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have been working for Talend for over three years. I have always felt that my manager has allowed me to exercise my strengths and improve on my weaknesses. I have never felt micro managed. I am able to work from home, which is great. I have also been able to travel some, but not too much. I feel very involved with my team and feel that we can all depend on each other when needed.

    Cons

    Talend is a growing company, so we are dealing with the normal growing pains of a smaller company. Procedures and polices are being implemented to help with this. When I started here, the internal training was very poor. Talend has worked on improving the internal training, as well as the external training. Talend has multiple products, so it can be difficult to learn all of them.

    Pros

    Talend is a growing organization where those with the aptitude and attitude to embrace opportunity will thrive.

    Cons

    The company has grown very fast and has been challenged the related growing pains. Specifically some internal functions could have been given more attention. This is being addressed and improving every fast.

    Pros

    Talend is a mature start-up that has the makings of a great Public company in the not-so-distant to near future. I've been with the company through many transitions, and to date, they have all been in the best interest of the company and its employees. Being on a sales team, I feel that I have a voice and that my opinion is not only received well, but appreciated. Talend is on the rise, but still has a lot of challenges to overcome. The benefits are great, as well as the compensation. Objectives are agreeable, but you must be willing to put in your time, especially on the sales side. Weakness shows, and the ones who cannot be creative, innovative, and adaptable are being weeded out - quickly...

    Cons

    The communication can be lacking at times, but this something that old and new management has recognized and working towards mending. The company is lacking in resources such as Engineers, Legal, Sales Support, etc... however, I believe that a lot of these issues, if not all, are being addressed by our new management and CEO. Much faith in 2014 and coming years...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the hiring and continue to build on products! Keep the trainings coming - new training methodology that was created in 2014 is great and only getting better.

    Pros

    Talend is making the transition to great. They are hiring great leaders and filling the right roles that will allow for scale and anticipated growth in the coming year. The company is in a strong position with footprint, funding, leadership and product that the community loves. Pretty great place to be, which is why I left the sure thing at New Relic. This company wants to be great and you can feel it in the culture.

    Cons

    Not many unless wanting to continue to "build" something great and scales is on the list. Dynamic growth and opportunity with a company about to go to the next level always comes with some challenges, but none that aren't being addressed and cant be overcome.

    Pros

    Management really wants you to be able to succeed at this company. This is unlike any sales role I've had where management only cares about numbers. Improvements are always made because your opinions get heard and get acted upon. Everyone is really friendly and makes an effort to get to know you on a personal basis.

    Cons

    Sales process is still being worked on between inside and outside sales, but everyone is great at communication and it's progressively getting refined.
