Oracle Cloud HCM

Very well suited for permanent employees in global organizations.

Not well suited for contingent workforces as you have to pay for Oracle licenses for all of them. We are looking at moving some of our temporary associate payrolls to Oracle Cloud, but the license cost is prohibitive (even though they will not have access to most features within Oracle).

Pros

Oracle Cloud HCM

  • Streamlines processes by making them consistent but also allows ability to slightly change those processes based upon business units needs.
  • With new newsfeed capabilities making system access more readily available to all users on all devices.
  • Allows for upgrades which allows end user to be on the most up to date product but now incorporates features to truly let you determine when to release those features.

  • Working with the career portal team has been great, but a small piece of the puzzle.

Cons

Oracle Cloud HCM

  • Reporting out of Taleo Learn is difficult.
  • Automation of performance plans in Taleo performance is difficult given our complexity
  • Historic performance records of terminated associates can be difficult to find due the the large number of previous associates records we have
Joshua Pekar | TrustRadius Reviewer

  • Access level could use some improvement for the users. i.e. limited documents tab access vs. eforms tab vs limited portal editing access.
  • Ability to give their administrators more access. i.e. manage and edit team members
  • Ability to give their administrators more access for control over paid e-forms
  • User friendlier way to upload regular documents.
  • Reporting!!!

Taleo does what we need it to do and based on the costs from both a time and money perspective, I don't see us changing anytime soon. If anything I think we will look to leverage the capabilities available that we may not already be using.

Oracle has an excellent support model. The challenge is in adopting this support model and making traditional IT and non-mature system administrators use this model. In combination with the Oracle Cloud (client) Community, the support is excellent.

There is a lot of potential on Fusion. We have reaped about 10% of potential benefits. Especially on Workforce Intelligence, the opportunities are huge. The reason why we do not use the solution at its full potential is not in the product (which is simple and transparent). A roadmap is under construction to bring more of its potential to the end user.

Alternatives Considered

Oracle Cloud HCM

I personally liked using Bullhorn better, everything was easy to pick up on and flowed really nicely. I feel that it was very intuitive were as Taleo does not have the same flow to it. Bullhorn also has a modern look and the ability for me to open all the jobs I am currently working on and candidate profiles at the same time

Taleo (owned now by Oracle) continues to be an incredibly powerful product and it's scalability is among the most robust of any ATS in use today.

Return on Investment

Oracle Cloud HCM

  • Once Taleo is up and running at your organization you will see a ROI within your first hire. I was using a lot of outside vendors prior to using Taleo which typical cost me 20K per hire for an engineer. So it was clear to the CEO once I made my first hire using Taleo via a job posting or referral or sourcing method that the ATS was the way to go. He was quite pleased. Cut the vendor fees from 500K a year down to under 100K!
