    Approves of CEO

    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 Management

    Invest more in customer service training and overall services delivery.

    "HR Company with Poor HR Practices"

    Disapproves of CEO

    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 Management

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

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

    Pros

    Can't really think of any.

    Cons

    This was a poorly run company from the top down. Most of the products were not well developed and upper management asked sales to push vaporware.

    Advice to Management

    You did the best thing possible and sold the company to Oracle. At least Oracle might actually develop solid products that actually work.

    Great people and culture. Everyone was very collaborative and focused on making the company successful

    Several departments were short-staffed and it took to long to add new features.

    Advice to Management

    Be more brutal with teams that don't deliver
