    Pros

    -Energy & Passion
    -Hot Market (Talent Management Software Market is heated and growing)
    -Ability to Make an Impact on Millions of Users (e.g. getting hired, getting rewarded & growing their career)
    -Responsible growth. Taleo is growing significantly and is profitable.

    All the normal challenges you might imagine at a growing company (e.g. communication, intensive work cycles periodically).

    Pros

    The 'bozo factor' at Taleo is quite low
    Taleo has great momentum in the market
    Taleo is well positioned to be lead the emerging Talent Management space
    Taleo's fast growth creates many opportunities
    Although most of us work fairly hard, many managers are flexible about scheduling and working from home

    Cons

    Taleo is more decentralized than many similar sized companies which results in some communication challenges
    Taleo's internal communication and knowledge management systems could be much better

    Advice to Management

    We focus strongly on profitability but we're in a land grab market where our largest competitor has double our valuation, less revenue, almost no profit but significantly faster growth. We should be more willing to offer deals on implementation services and first year fees to grow more quickly.
