    I have been working at Talend full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The recruiting process was A+ and very structured. My HR contact was awesome and explained the entire recruiting process to me, during our first conversation. My HR contact guided me well thru the entire process and what to expect along the way. One of the great attributes of my HR contact was excellent communication and keeping me abreast of current status and recruiting developments. Without guidance from my HR contact, the recruiting journey would not have been so smooth. Thanks again and I'm glad to be part of the Talend Team.

    Cons

    None so far, being a new employee

    Pros

    Great product and outstanding opportunity to rule the data integration market. There is a lot of marketing and SDR support which makes our jobs so much easier. Great team support and solid leadership. Everyone wants to help.

    Cons

    Process improvement and operational parts, particularly in CRM data. Clean it up.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more time on individual growth and development.

    I have been working at Talend full-time

    Pros

    Comp plan is decent and many account execs are killing it here and achieving over quota. Good place to be if you have many years of experience in enterprise software. Lots of money to be made in big data.

    Cons

    Management claims transparency but they operate in a dishonest way. There was an external firm they hired to conduct a survey of how employees felt about Talend's culture. The results were tabulated, and the report was made available to all employees. Seems pretty transparent right? Since then, no action items have been taken to improve the culture at Talend other than the CEO claiming that it brought tears to his eyes during our recent Town Hall. There are rumors floating around that some of the employees who responded negatively to the survey did not receive a good performance review. Was the purpose of the survey really to improve things at Talend or was it to eliminate any and all dissent?

    Advice to Management

    These expensive consultants have made their reports. What will you do now to implement their suggestions to improve Talend's culture? The attrition rate is horrible. Stop the stack ranking during annual reviews - it is an outdated way of doing reviews, and other tech companies have done away with it several years ago. The CEO openly invites us to have a chat in his office-why would anyone do that and risk their job, given what just happened?

    I have been working at Talend full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great vision, Disrupting the market. What a Sales Kick Off. The best I have ever been too, and I have been to a lot. The messaging on Big Data and the Cloud was spot on. Great customer use cases presented. They even had a VP of a real customer present why he bought Talend. It was the best presentation on the value proposition on how to build a Big Data environment, using Talend as the cornerstone to this strategy.

    Plus SKO was at The Broadmoor, wow what a place.

    Talend is such a great place to be right now. People are doing big deals, we have a marketing team supporting the ae, and the management team is executing on the vision. The executives had a open forum session, and they we very transparent with all the questions from the team, and it was a great vibe to feel the cohesiveness. Growing fast and taking names from the competition.

    Cons

    Growth is always hard, and Talend is adding hundreds of people each year, which is always hard to get all those people integrated adding value. But so far so good. The SE's even recently hired are doing great POC work in just a few short months.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the enthusiasm alive, you have the right vision, just keep hiring great people and letting them execute.

    I have been working at Talend full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Talend is in the early IPO stage and things are very exciting. We have a fast paced environment with very little to no hand holding. This creates a culture of creativity and accountability for all levels of employees. You have the opportunity to create, build, and own processes on a global scale and run with projects from the ground up.

    The people who work here are smart and motivated.

    Cons

    Growing pains are a reality for all fast growing companies. Processes need to be built where there is nothing in place. New territories need to be broken into and many people have to wear many different hats that are not necessarily part of their job description. This can be tiring and frustrating but also exciting.

    Advice to Management

    Build onto a greater global Talend culture. Bring ALL employees together for Talend contests, events, and updates to make us feel more like a unified company. Your people are your greatest asset, help us to feel more connected with one another, especially remote employees.
