Pros

Overall, it is effective applicant software with amazing customer service. Its great for the price and does what we need it to.
I had a good experience with ApplicantStack. I don't know if it is just a better job market right now or it was the product, but I received better candidates for my open positions.
What I love the most is that I get an email when I need to review something. I don't ever have to guess if I have something outstanding, it lets me know when I need to take action.

Pros

Super simple, super effective, and customer service is top notch. Has a mobile app that is perfectly integrated and the on-boarding portion is outstanding.
Great, the employee/coworker directory is so awesome as you can easily find numbers and emails to get in contact with others in your company.
BambooHR is a really useful repository of important information, like our employee handbook, various benefits documents, and links to resources that we might need for health or other services.

Cons

I can't purge my system of client/caregiver entries that are not relevant, so they clutter my search feed. There is no report for client contacts - this is inconvenient in an emergency setting.
Although the duplicates will show up AFTER being loaded, this still means that we wasted a view on the job board we used to search AND wasted time to upload that person.
Overall the product is intuitive and easy to correct if something happens to go wrong. There are very few ways to make an error that is not recoverable.

Cons

It doesn't have the most professional look and every time I use it I worry that I'm missing an update because the alerts seem to be delayed.
The people and how they cant help with any misunderstandings but instead cancel your account and destroy the company that you worked so hard on. Garbage un hearted people.
At times I had trouble logging into this software through my phone, however, other than that BambooHR works really well and has not given me any issues.
