    I have been working at Talroo full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I am so lucky to be a part of fun and hardworking environment. One of the best parts of working at Talroo is the people. Our team is not only full of high IQ but also high EQ folks - they can be easy-going, and they are always super eager to help others become successful. Our catered lunches (and grill days) is one of the best parts of the day because we get to eat together and continue to get to know each other, you never feel lonely. Managers want to see you succeed and will praise you for a job well done if you go the extra mile. They actually listen to your ideas and will give you feedback on implementation and that creates a phenomenal experience. It is impressive how many ideas come directly from regular employees and are put into action. Executives are transparent and will give regular updates on the business - both positive and negative. You will interact with them regularly. The CEO also gives trainings focusing on what we do, why we do it, and how it happens. If you would like to grow in your personal development of knowledge and skills outside of your job description, you are encouraged to do so. Fellow co-workers may be the ones to help you grow in these areas through shadowing and knowledge sharing. Like any company there is change, this is one of my favorite parts because it always keeps things interesting and it gives me a very positive outlook for the future of this company. I enjoy the work that I do every day. I can directly tie personal success in my role to success of the company. You can make an impact! Perks - Free catered lunch from some of the best places in Austin - 20 minute break (Tea Time) at 3:40 every day - Monthly health insurance is covered - Great office space (coffee bar, lunch room with food always available), sparkling water at your disposal, great views and of course, scooters.

    Cons

    Location, Location, Location. The traffic to this area gets dodgy.

    I worked at Talroo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great pay, 100% paid employer health insurance, free lunch, snacks, quarterly and holiday company events. Awesome co-workers.

    Cons

    Employees are held to an invisible standard. A self-described "High Performance" culture, yet there is no measuring stick and zero feedback, even when asked directly.

    I have been working at Talroo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Exciting work in a very high-volume, high-availability sector, with opportunities to apply the latest technologies from cloud systems to machine learning. - A growing player in a very competitive market space. - A set of core values that aren't just words on a card or on the wall, but are lived every day to encourage collaboration, teamwork, and common goals. - Individual work has a direct impact on the company's bottom line. - Competitive salaries. - Great benefits (including a company-paid gym membership) - Mentoring opportunities by senior-level co-workers that have a lot of industry experience. - Lots of team events (quarterly events, special holidays, and Talroo Spirit Week!) - The entire company is focused on one industry, so no splitting of focus. - Catered lunch. Every day!

    Cons

    - The location, while beautiful, suffers from some pretty significant traffic delays during the school year. - The company is going through a maturation phase so there is some turnover as priorities change, but not really any more than any other company. - An older software design paradigm is being shifted to current structures, but there is still a lot of legacy code that needs to be dealt with.

    I have been working at Talroo full-time

    Pros

    The current group of C-Suite we have is our best rendition yet. Employee benefits are outstanding compared to other jobs I have had. Free lunch, paid healthcare, disability insurance, 401K, etc. Top notch!

    Cons

    Some work groups have been able to adopt flexible working hours but not all groups have gone to this yet. Flexibility means a lot to people.

    I have been working at Talroo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Open to making changes that are in the best interest for the employees and company. The company has made management and procedural changes that is propelling into the future, both technically and strategically. The C-level execs are down to earth and are investing heavily on their employees and making decisions based and industry needs. Innovating on many fronts as our industry needs calls for. The old policy of 9:30-5:30 core hours is no more. You are simply asked to get your work done.

    Cons

    Parking can be a bit of a hassle but I don't believe that is something the company can handle directly.

    I worked at Talroo full-time

    Pros

    In its previous incarnation as Jobs2Careers, had one of the best benefits packages of any small companies. Employees were well-awarded for their hard work. This may still be true.

    Cons

    The CEO was very strict.

    I have been working at Talroo full-time

    Pros

    There have been a lot of changes in management over the past few months, but it has turned out to really be a positive. More flexible schedules and understanding managers. Attendance isn't a thing anymore and 9-5:30 is your schedule if you want it to be (there are more departments with a bit more flexible on this than others though.) Hiring the right people has been a focus lately and the new additions to the staff have also been strongly aligned with company culture and values. There's a lot of opportunity for promotions and raises within the company. Growth is definitely a priority here. Amazing benefits from unlimited snacks, drinks, coffee, catered lunch and snack time, paid gym membership, paid healthcare for you and your entire family, and more!

    Cons

    We recently rebranded from Jobs2Careers to Talroo. With this has come a lot of change. While almost all of the change has been positive, too much change at one time can be overwhelming to most. The changes made people somewhat nervous but, now the changes have started to slow down so that has really helped.
