Comments: HR tracking with on-boarding and off-boarding tools.

Pros: Powerful HR software that can really be customized to my needs. Hiring tools, on-boarding, and off-boarding have been powerful tools for a small company looking to reduce liability without adding personnel. Customizable reports, integration with accounting, and notifications for the important things. Employee portal creates paperless enrollment in provided benefits as well as reports and access to important personal information.

Cons: It is a large financial commitment that may take some time to realize the benefits. Improvements to the mobile app would be nice as it lacks the many features that would benefit the employee.

Do not sleep on this software. This software is a dream come true for connecting HR to the team.

Comments: Once we were able to customize the software, I wouldn't use anything else for HR. I absolutely loved using Bamboo.

Pros: I like how full featured the software is, from keeping people in the know with on boarding, who is new, who is out, time off, document uploads and organization. This software is a one stop shop for HR.

Cons: I felt that the reporting filters could be a bit more robust and full featured. I would like to see more filter options on the reporting side to better hone in on more specific aspects.

This has changed how we do HR!

Pros: We recently implemented this to track time off. It has made it so much easy for us to track who is out and their accruals.
The employee review module is great
The app is fantastic makes it easy to approve time off requests on the go
It works with motivosity another product we use

Cons: Customizing the app can be a little difficult
A user can not have 2 managers. In our organization people have multiple managers so we have to split them up.

Comments: Easy to use for writing job descriptions and collecting resumes

Pros: Overall, BambooHR is easy to use for recruiting, has a lot of customized options for writing job descriptions and customizing what is required in order for an applicant to apply. The tool also has a handy feature where it makes it easy to view your company's org chart, and quickly change/view your own personal info.

Cons: I primarily use BambooHR for recruiting purposes at a remote marketing agency, and the software doesn't allow me to list a position as report - I need to choose a physical location. I've also had some issues with the built-in email systems, where attachments were disappearing from emails I sent to applicants. This is relatively easy to work around, but annoying nonetheless.

User Friendly - Great to Manage Our HR Needs

Comments: Customer Service is great and very helpful. Love having all our HR needs in one place without having to hire a new employee.

Pros: Great product to manage our HR needs. Helped in tracking our employees hours and was super easy to navigate through. Tracking and requesting vacation time was easy. Updating and adding personal information was easy. Training videos are awesome and easy to follow.

Cons: There is no expense feature. I also struggle with it being cloud based, but have not had an issue with it so far. I would like if it could integrate with our scheduling software. Also reviews should be able to be completed more than once a year.
