Overall Satisfaction with Oracle HCM Cloud
We currently use Taleo Recruiting for Hiring and applicant tracking, we also are using Transitions for Pre-Onboarding of our new hires. The system is used globally in 3 regions. We also utilize Taleo Performance for the annual performance review cycle for all employees globally. Reports pulled from Taleo are used in executive dashboards and other reports to the business leaders. Taleo currently allows us a one platform solution for recruiting and performance. We integrate our system with Oracle which we use for people management. Using the system for automation of HR processes has helped to make data more accessible and given the ability to do trend analysis.
- Taleo is good at listening to their customers' needs and challenges. Knowledge Exchange is very helpful.
- having the ability to customize the system to meet the customer needs is beneficial.
- It provides global solutions to HR processes. Being able to contextualize based on location is essential due to country specific laws.
- Taleo releases upgrades 3 times a year, making it very difficult to stay on the most recent version
- Though customizable, many basic features are not available consistently throughout the different modules. Fields that may be available in recruiting are not available in Transitions
- The system tends to run slow and users receive many errors. The system tends to time out without notifying the user first as it should.
Any company looking to implement an automated system would benefit from Taleo. However, always look 10 years down the road when selecting a product. As with all technologies, it is out of date as soon as you implement. You must be able to upgrade frequently in order to keep up with the bug fixes. Make sure the resources are available for this. Start simple and always take time to stabalize before going on to the next shiny thing.
Using Oracle HCM Cloud
Even with it's challenges, Taleo provides a great tool to capture data and provide employees with a one-stop shop for multiple processes. We are seeing an upward trend in obtaining new cutting edge technologies that will be beneficial in the ever changing world of High Tech. The community of users on Taleo is outstanding and there is a high level of collaboration and willingness to share that is not seen in other products. Overall we don't see a need to switch systems and will continue to leverage Taleo for the business.
