"Powerful LMS"

Comments: Overall our experience has been great. The LMS does exactly what we need to train our employees.

Pros: Cornerstone is very powerful. It has all of the advanced functions we need for a large and complex organization.

Cons: The admin side can be hard for a new user. It takes time and training to understand all the power and complexities of the system.

"Great Product Overall"

Pros: My overall experience with Cornerstone OnDemand has been excellent. I appreciate the training resources, success center and how they push for users/clients to become experts and work with their peers. I have completed several of the certifications and am currently a client community expert and both have allowed me to learn and network with others about the product which has helped me be a better administrator for my own organization. I recommend this LMS product to any org seeking to adopt the best LMS on the market.

Cons: Our implementation was really rough and caused a lot of stress and rework. There are areas of the system that are inconsistent or have design flaws that haven't gotten the priority they need yet. GPS support is challenging you often just get the answer that is is how it is built and there is nothing they can help you with. Technical Support issues can take months and then still not be resolved or you have to do more work to resolve them on your own.

Alternatives Considered: SumTotal Workforce Management and Saba TalentSpace

Reasons for Choosing Cornerstone LMS: I switched organizations and was happy to move away from SumTotal which had a complicated open architecture and very little product support. At this organization we really were using PeopleSoft as a very basic sort of LMS and it just didn't have the features and functions we need particularly for online content.

Switched From: SumTotal Workforce Management and Oracle PeopleSoft

Thank you for leaving a review, Tina! We appreciate that you have taken the time to become a true expert on our LMS. Utilizing the training resources and your peers is so important. We want our customers to be successful and love to see your continued learning. I'm sorry to hear GPS support has been challenging. It is a major focus for us right now and I hope you will see improvement and shorter response times in the future. Thank you for being such an involved, loyal customer!

"Gets the job done.."

Comments: Over all its a great product, gets the job done! It’s just a matter of not being as “pleasuring” to look at and navigate in as some other sites, kind of blah and drab appearance wise but functions every where perfectly! Would still recommend this highly, would just advise may not have the best “appearance” until you get into your selected course.

Pros: Definitely a good product, tracks all completed and saved items/coursework. Has plenty of was to search for programs and locate what you are looking for. Easy to use and navigate through.

Cons: The “visual” is not as pleasing as I would expected, seems a little “dry” in its layout.

"Simply Awful"

Comments: Absolutely awful, once you sign that contract no one responds to you in a timeline manner. You get a lot of "that is how the system is built, can't help you" answers. They have a great sales team and awful everything else.

Pros: Not a lot to be honest. If you have to pick something, it would be their reporting 2.0 tool. When it doesn't freeze or error out, it is simple to use.

Cons: Where to start? Here are just a few highlights:
- The worst customer service I'd ever experience working with a vendor.

- They take days to reply to emails, same for technical support tickets, even when they are labeled as a high priority.
- When you call the support line, their reps are customer service agents who are just reading the same outdated info you find on their documentation online, so useless. -If you need to escalate the issue, prepare to wait 2 days for a reply, the first reply will always be a question about something you already explained on the initial ticket. Then you'll be waiting at least another 48 hrs for an update on their "investigation." - Their compatibility with iPads has become very bad. Since 13.1 came out, we've had nothing but problems with files not loading, 404 errors, server errors, and to make matter worse, expect to wait a week or more to be told, there is nothing they can do. - If you have to set permissions at different levels, good luck figuring out how the hundreds of individual permissions interconnect and how they are dependent on each other. Their own training team can't help you with this area. So if you plan to create any custom permissions that fall outside the few standard positions they have already created, good luck, prepare to spend weeks testing settings. - They refused a 1-year extension and said that they wouldn't consider anything less than 2 and that there would be a significant price increase for less than 3.

"Cornerstone Learning Management System"

Comments: Cornerstone is a highly customizable solution. Although there is much training needed from an admin perspective to optimize its functionality, the user experience is a positive one.

Pros: Cornerstone offers a large base of resources to use and learn the system. Not only is it user friendly for employees, but also allows for ease of tracking training from an admin perspective. Although security can be complicated, the system offers many choices in how companies would like to set up user access. The ability to customize the system to meet organizational needs is great. Continuous updates to the system in order to make improvements and add enhancements is definitely a plus.

Cons: Some older features can use a facelift. When questions are submitted, the response time is slow. Instead of removing features in order to add new ones, would be beneficial to leave those that work well while adding additional features instead of removing those that clients appreciate in order to make room for new features. Improvements to the mobile app are needed in order for it to be a full experience for users as it is on the web.
