    Pros
    I like that its very similar to the most famous social media platforms, but kind of more professional and very fun to use for work.
    Yammer is a great way to share info with your colleagues - whether it is a fun fact of the day or reinforcing important messages/due dates.
    The perfect tool for setting up work channels. Easy to use, ability to create a number of different groups, can be linked through Microsoft Teams which is a great bonus.
    Cons
    Everything becomes lost in between groups, it's difficult to remember who posted what where.
    I feel that this app offered from the many by Microsoft has just been left behind a bit. With Teams now being the boom, I believe Yammer will tend to die if it is not implemented within Teams.
    Sometimes having too many tools in the O365 makes it confusing for users to follow up on. Found that deleting posts may be a challenge.

    Efficient social networking platform for enterprise

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    I have been a very happy yammer user ever since it was implemented in our organization. It helps enhance productive communication and collaboration among employees from various departments Knowledge grow multiple ways when it is shared. Its integration with other Microsoft applications is seamless.

    Pros

    The clean user interface is easy to navigate and the feed is intuitive Great tool to notify important announcements within organization like new product launches , regulatory changes and emergencies. It helps to enhance leadership engagement, from top management to all employees of the organization Secure platform to discuss about confidential projects among team members. Poll is another great advantage of yammer, entire company can participate in polls

    Cons

    Though the user interface is familiar, sorting posts by date requires bit of effort Additionally, searching for a topic is difficult The mobile application needs improvement and the user interface needs a revamp

    Private social media

    Reviewed 2 years ago
    Pros

    Yammer is a intranet social media that run privately, among the workers of my organization. We have use it for sharing news and memo of our department or organization. We can have a private group that only our department use, or the public forum wheres everyone on the organization can freely communicate with each other.

    Cons

    Yammer is getting obsolete, as nowadays, no one have use it anymore. There are not new update of feature for the software, so we have lost interest on it. We only use it for to check update from our Administration department, any not using it for anything else anymore.

    Not a big fan of Yammer

    Reviewed 5 years ago
    Pros

    It is somewhat helpful in that you can get responses from people you don't interact with on a daily basis. Our company did a lip sync challenge and that worked well on Yammer with videos posted working seamlessly.

    Cons

    Finally, after more than a year of my company using Yammer, you can access it with one click. Up until this week, one had to enter their work email and password TWICE! and our email addresses are very long. One of the pages you had to enter the email on had a huge button for "sign up" Yammer and a link in the text to sign on. So most of us signed up over and over which led to getting numerous emails each time yammer sent one out. There are over 5,000 employees in my organization and they are using Yammer as the sole source of information to the employees. Most items are seen by less than 200 people, and this over a year after yammer was instituted! So I'm not sure if it is Yammer that is the problem or if the problem is more in how my company set it up.
