Fair pricing, good cloud options, and helpful technical support

What is our primary use case?

Our company typically uses Taleo at its human resource core. I use their PeopleSoft and use functions from other tools as well - such as Workday. Generally, I really rely on PeopleSoft.

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution offers good benefits for administrators."
  • "It's hard to share access with other people right now. If you try it will not work. They should do something that improves the ability to share everything."

What other advice do I have?

We're just customers and end-users. We don't have a business relationship with the company. I actually prefer a different product, Workday. I would recommend that instead of Taleo. That said, on a scale from one to ten, I'd still rate Taleo at a nine.

A stable solution, but it needs an updated interface and should allow for better integration

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for recruitment.

Pros and Cons

  • "The stability of the solution is good."
  • "I don't see very valuable features in this product because it has an old way of interpreting ATS. It should be more flexible in managing datasets and data searches. The screening data is a long process in Taleo."

What other advice do I have?

I would rate the solution five out of ten. They should provide users with a better, more modern interface and enable more flexibility in managing the datasets.
