Pros

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.

Pros

I love how easy it is for someone to put their talents on display and how easy it is for me to find them, helped a lot to find great people to partner with.

SC

Satnam C.

Workplace has given me the opportunity to connect with other independent business owners with similar interests and values. It is a secure platform we feel safe sharing motivating content.

KG

Kristina G.

I'm very pleased and happy with this product. It's helping me to stay connected and be productive in all areas online.

EM

Eva M.

Cons

Everything becomes lost in between groups, it's difficult to remember who posted what where.

KF

Katie F.

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.

LP

Leonardo P.

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.

VA

Victor A.

Cons

Don't even use it anymore due to the massive spam and inability to turn off notifications.

ML

Mary L.

I disliked the large amount of notifications that are received from the groups that I participated. This impacts directly on my productivity at work, because it spent a considerable amount of time.

CK

Camille K.

Probably the biggest complaint I've heard concerning Workplace is the price as it is a bit on the expensive side for what it does.

Good workplace tool

Reviewed 2 years ago

It is a useful tool in the workplace for internal communications, but is limited to a degree because it can be a bit difficult to use, especially if you are not using it every day.

Pros

It's quick and easy to post content, links, and files relevant to the workplace or specific individuals.

Cons

It's too hard to find old posts and to set up notifications. Some of the features and options are hidden away and hence don't get used.

I have used it in my previous workplace that was really helpful and time-effective.

Pros

Yammer provides very easy communication among employees of a company. It reduces the number of emails and meetings because of easy communication. Pictures, files can be shared easily.

Cons

While so many innovations added to the software, its functionality is somehow complicated and basic trainings are important for new users.

Yammer for Daily Communication Needs

I have enjoyed my experience with Yammer, primarily involving daily communication with coworkers.

Pros

Social media for business

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

It is really nice viewing posts from other employees that are related to work questions that people have but don't know who to direct them which usually yield many helpful responses. It is also a form of social media where people post humorous work related posts that help create a light and happy work environment.

Cons

I don't have anything negative to say about it, it is a nice addition to the workplace that is both helpful and creates a nice work environment.

Great platform to collaborate together and share ideas

Reviewed a year ago

Overall great platform to share ideas and collaborate, but definitely would not pay for this platform, as there are free or charge platforms that currently exist.

Pros

This platform is almost like the social media platform we use in the workplace. It allows us to communicate better and share ideas and recognize those that do good deeds within our organization

Cons

After 1 year of using this platform, i am still trying to get used to the platform as there are things about the platform i still do not know or am aware of.

Yammer Review - 12/14/18

Reviewed 4 years ago

Overall, Yammer has been a great tool for our workplace. It has eliminated much of the email build-up in our inboxes, and serves as a great "permanent" online space for forms and the like.

Pros

I work for a very large organization (500+ employees) and Yammer has greatly improved our ability to collaborate across divisions and networks. There is more transparency into what is happening in other parts of the organization.

Cons

It is not as customizable as I would like. It would be nice to have more ability to organize the left-hand groups display.

A Message Board in the age of Facebook

Reviewed 2 years ago

I think that the nostalgic idea of a message board for the business world may have had good intentions, but the current culture does not support it. It's also not necessary with how frequently people are utilizing email and other forms of communication like chat/im and video conferencing. Yammer is, unfortunately, just another thing that we have to "check" on instead of having that information delivered directly to us.

Pros

Yammer allows people with similar interests and/or work groups to interact in a business-friendly environment. It's fairly easy to use and integrated with Microsoft 365.

Cons

Yammer is a glorified Facebook. It makes it too easy to bring the Facebook culture into the workplace. It seems like a product that was made with Millenials in mind, but is geared more toward the opinionated, over-sharing crowd that utilizes Facebook on a daily basis.

A Sense of Community

Reviewed 7 months ago

As Vice President of our Social Committee, Yammer is a key tool in keeping our members engaged and informed while away from the office. We can post reminders, or pictures from contests, and it really gets the whole group involved and participating.

Pros

I appreciate being able to connect with people within my organization in a more social and laid back forum. The platform is easy to use, and allows broadcasts to all members of a particular group, which will also send their work email a message. It has allowed for a space where people can still maintain a sense of community, even while working from home. Sharing photos or hosting contests, Yammer has become a key tool in our workplace community.

Cons

Not as customizable as some other social platforms, and posts seem to be limited in their ability to be unique looking. Most aspects, including reactions, are very cut and paste.

Decent work place social media

Reviewed a year ago

Overall, Yammer is a decent social media for the workplace and gets the job done. With the ability to share files and give organizational-wide PSAs, it really has a lot of practical functionality even if the UI could use some updating.

Pros

Yammer is good for organizational-wide social-media like announcements. Sometimes things aren't important enough for department/organizational-wide emails but are helpful enough for those who are interested enough to see it. Yammer is the perfect place to broadcast without spamming inboxes.

Cons

The UI looks really stale and really could use some modernization. It looks kind of depressing and old when you're on site.

Messy

Reviewed 3 years ago

Not useful for me at all. I wish it wasn't used in my company.

Pros

It's not really for me so I don't have any pros. I guess it is good if you want yet another form of communication.

Cons

I find it really messy. My workplace introduced it as another form of communication as an alternative to email. But it's just one more thing to check, and I can't structure it like I do my inbox. With my inbox I can file things under certain categories, delete things that aren't useful.... with yammer everything is just there all together with no real coordination.

Pretty good collaboration tool

Reviewed 4 years ago

Yammer's value is felt the more its used by teams. If leadership doesn't consistently follow up to ensure employees are using it Yammer will be disappointing.

Pros

My company used Yammer to help employees collaborate better. Our older employees didn't make much use of the system but the potential of Yammer is great for engaged employees. The social nature of the product matches up well with our millennial workforce. Its essentially a business version of Facebook. Making work groups to streamline communication and give shout outs is easy and fun.

Cons

If you workforce isn't active on social media or appreciate those means of communication it might be a tough sell to get them on this system. Either way, implementing Yammer will take a consistent effort in campaigning for its usefulness if your workplace isn't used to this type of system. Yammer could also do better by allowing for more customization or branding by the employer to make it seem like an internal system. I have no complaints about the software itself.

I like the social media layout of the software. This allows for people to already have an idea on how to use the software before any proper training. Allows for a cross-company form of communication.
