    I worked at PeopleFluent full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Strong products especially the Recruiting and Compensation solutions,
    Working on the Marketing team, I was impressed by the hard work and dedication of the entire group. It is a strong and committed team. Everyone was willing to roll up their sleeves and do whatever was needed to get things done.

    Cons

    The company moves at a fast pace so you need to thrive in a fast pace to be successful at PeopleFluent.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in innovation to maintain the strong product set.

    I have been working at PeopleFluent full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I am thrilled to be part of team PeopleFluent. We just announced record-setting Q4 2016 results with 47% growth in North American talent acquisition / talent management and ARR Bookings. We have all worked hard for this achievement over the past 2-years and have benefited from strong, laser-focused leadership. The hard work is paying off and the company is building momentum with award-winning products and vertical focus.

    Cons

    This environment is not for everyone. The organization has been restructured and many under-performers exited from the business. Individuals are being held accountable like never before. Rewards are plentiful for those that perform at a high level. You have to be committed and work hard. If you’re looking for a “life style” job, this is not the company for you. People who love their work, want to be engaged, want to be challenged, and work with great leaders to win – do well here.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to build momentum by: executing on the strategy, staying focused, and staying the course – reward top performers and those that are adding value to the business.

    I have been working at PeopleFluent full-time

    Pros

    - Great work/life balance
    - A CEO with an immense amount of dedication to the success of his organization
    - Leadership team is committed to the organizations success and have worked together for some time, great trusted relationships & deep knowledge of the organization and it's products
    - Industry SMEs
    - Great people to work with, great sales team, great support team

    Cons

    - RVP turn over, however, I always had other leadership to lean on to answer questions
    - Be ready to work! This is a smaller sales organization than some of our competitors so you need good work ethic and to be ready to play a couple roles, this company's successful sales folks know how to roll up their sleeves and get some work done.

    I worked at PeopleFluent full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good place to work, great employees. We work hard and play hard. Good work life balance.
    Pretty much 9-5. If you need to leave early, make sure you ask or tell someone.
    I do have fun here and like the people I have become friends with.

    Cons

    The pay could be more competitive. We just changed our benefits, but I did like BCBS better.
    Better match on 401k

    Advice to Management

    Better communication around the company.

    I worked at PeopleFluent full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Honestly, the people you're exposed to while working in the trenches and doing all the dirty work of directors/executives who can't figure out what they want and where the company is going.

    Cons

    Upper management turn over rate is horrible! The CEO/founder, while might appear to charm you over, will have no problem hunting you down and ridiculing you in front of the entire office if you mess up. He has his favorites and everyone who does not fall into that category has been chased out and replaced.

    Depending on where you are within the company there is little to no growth or direction on your career. Writing your goals for the next year while reviewing your achievements from the current year. HA. Way to be a great HR company.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach within your products. Learn how to hire manager/directors and don't let the junior people handle all the work. Treat your employees with respect and consistency or else the good ones will leave (and have been leaving)

    Pros

    None. There is absolutely nothing positive about this company. They will make it sound good to you but don't be fooled. It is a company in major decline losing money and customers faster than I have ever seen.

    Cons

    Leadership is horrible starting at the top with the CEO. He has no clue what he is doing. And that on top of being a micromanager ego maniac blinds him from the fact that he is clueless. And that tone flows down the org from there. He has also appointed a group of lackies in leadership positions that are unqualified and frankly would never hold such positions outside of PeopleFluent.

    Advice to Management

    Replace your CEO and senior leadership.

    I worked at PeopleFluent full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Work from home
    Some really nice people
    Opportunity to work on several technologies
    Opportunity for quick advancement and responsibility for less experienced applicants

    Cons

    Work-life balance
    Employees are not respected nor appreciated. A 'Talent Management Company'?
    Compensation (bonuses) not paid in time
    Compensation (bonuses) cut significantly for consultants in 2016. Change was back dated and thus a nasty surprise as bonuses were paid close to 6 months late and were up to 60% less than expected.
    High turnover - people are burning out.
    Management is horribly unorganized. Everything is managed as a fire drill.
    Senior leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees. Workforce has been stretched thin (through RIFs and other turnover). Disrespecting them is a good way to get rid of them too.
    It all starts at the top - not caring for your employees flows down, not having a vision, not holding people accountable, not admitting mistakes..
    They say unhappy customers spread the word - the same applies to unhappy (ex-) employees. There's no need for termination to cause friction yet there is lots of negative feedback here. This is an indication of serious morale issues within the employees and should be resolved for you to be successful.
