Pros
"The solution offers good benefits for administrators."

More Oracle Taleo Pros →

"This solution has always been stable for me.""I think it's perfect that every requirement has flexibility in how it is handled, and that there are several workarounds for any problem we are looking to solve. Each problem has multiple solutions, so it gives us a lot of flexibility in terms of processes.""Currently, we are using the performance and goals management functionality the most. It is connected with the enterprise solution, and it is seamless. It can be easily accessed because it is available via the net. It is readily available, provided you have an internet connection. Their technical support is also very good.""The self-service part is most valuable. Employees and managers can do a lot of things on their own, and they are not dependent on the HR organization.""This solution offers good flexibility and configurability. It can handle different types of performance management.""It has a global database, and it is globally accessible. By using this solution, we have moved away from paper, which is a big step for us.""Overall, it's excellent performance management.""The initial setup was pretty simple."

Cons
"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."

More Oracle Taleo Cons →

"The reporting and cloud integration could be done better in this solution.""It is not that user-friendly. It can be made more user-friendly.""Also, it would be helpful if they could improve its ability to localize the product to Nigeria.""The user experience could be simplified.""The initial setup could be simplified.""SuccessFactors could be improved by making it usable on mobile and making its features less rigid.""Its overall integration and user experience can be improved. SuccessFactors is a system that is built out of three different systems. The elements part was bought from Plateau, and the original performance dialogue was built by SuccessFactors itself. After that, SAP bought it, and it hasn't improved in the last few years. SuccessFactors is a perfect tool if you use it the way it is meant to be, but if you start building custom sessions and try to use it differently, then it is a total mess. It is not agile. It is like an old Mastodon truck or whatever. We don't have the Employee Central and Competence Management modules. Our company made the choice to not implement the Employee Central module. We also didn't implement the Competence Management module. We use the learning module to do some competence management, but I am not that fond of it. It would have been best to have the whole suite. SAP should never sell this without selling the whole suite because it just doesn't work. The biggest gain for me would be having the possibility of doing strategic personnel planning and managing internal mobility. If it could be used for social purposes, such as creating communities and connecting with media channels, that would be perfect. It should also have the possibilities for local admin and agile product development.""The stability could be a bit better."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
  • "I don't want to comment on the license cost, to be honest. It could be about $1,000 approximately per customer. However, it's very flexible in terms of the licensing costs depending on the volume and depending on the deal of installation."
  • "If you go by best practices and do it right from the outset, the setup won't be a costly endeavor. In terms of setup, there is a lot of flexibility compared to three years ago."
  • "It could be cheaper."

    Top Answer: 
    It's my understanding that the licensing is paid on a yearly basis, however, I cannot speak to the cost. The project manager handles that aspect of the product. It's my understanding that SAP as a… more »
