    I worked at Taleo

    Pros

    Great team work and great management ard some of the other perks at working there are free drinks and a som ohter good extra benefits there. This company had gone tru a acquistion of Vurv Technology and that made this company to be the leader in the talent management industry compared to other competitors. They have a great products that can really be described to be much better than the rest of the applications out there. They have many global locations around the world and I believe they will grow in the next few years much bigger. Many chances to work in other locations possibly.

    Cons

    too slow to repsond to employees needs about issues

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communications to other employees in other locations

    Pros

    Good people in management for the most part. Very personal and interested in you as a person (not all departments are like this, but most are). A person can get exposure to different departments if they want to. A person needs to be up front to get that, but I have found that very little is denied those who ask for it. Also, management seems to respond favorably to those who take initiative. IT is paid very well in general and seem all seem to be very pleased with the monetary portion of their compensation package. Upper Management gets great perks.

    Cons

    Lower salaries. High stress environment. Long work hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the benefits package.

    Pros

    SaaS and Talent Management Leader. Innovative, focused, agressive and driven management. Generous Perfomance based compensation. Opportunity for advancement for self-starters. Mostly very competent, bright colleagues. Increasingly global focus.

    Cons

    Increasingly hierarchical corporate structure. Poor internal customer support. Poor employee onboarding, training and ongoing support. To be succesful you have to be independent, entrepreneurial and experienced. No formal career development, veteran's often passed over for management position in favor of new outside talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in customer service training and overall services delivery.

    HR Company with Poor HR Practices

    Pros

    One of the leading on demand software companies with a blue chip customer base. Company is public and stock has been doing fairly well this year, with positive analyst ratings.

    Cons

    Upper management treats employees poorly which is ironic given that they are in the HR space. Compensation strategy is to pay only at mid point, they are very stingy with stock options so only officers of the company make good money, while the rest of the employees make so-so money. CEO is tyranical and makes it a practice to publicly humiliate people in meetings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach to your customers, talent is your best asset so take good care of it.

    Former Employee - Integration and Reporting Support Analyst in London, England (UK)

    I worked at Taleo full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Everyone on the support team is there only from 8 to 5pm.

    Cons

    Overall very low morale on team-mates
    Non existent training
    Extremely dissatisfied customers to deal with

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Prepare your people properly before sending them to support clients.
    The software itself is amazingly buggy (I was there on 2011). FIX IT!
    The support senior and medium management is worthless. They have no clue what is going on with the clients.

    Pros

    Pay, benefits package, flexibility! In the public eye Taleo has a good reputation from clients. However chalk that up to a great marketing team!

    Cons

    Taleo's software is supposed to help companies from large to small hire and retain employees effectively! Unfortunately they don't practice what they preach!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow your own advice and what you sell. People are not expendable, this their life you play games with. If your a bottom line company that's fine but don't sugarcoat things to make it seem that it isn't all that matters!
