    Pros

    Taleo was the pro. Best company ever worked for. Plenty of job opportunities. Taleo believed in giving opportunities to employees.

    Cons

    Biggest challenge at Taleo was training/knowledge of employees - getting new hires up to speed. The job as an IC also wasn't that great. Not much support provided.

    Advice to Management

    NA. Company doesn't exist any more.
