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

The onboarding process is great on the new employee side. The staff have welcomed my feedback when I give it, which I appreciate.
Our employees love the easy to use interface and ability to self manage all of their benefits and paid time off. Oh... and we love Slack integration, so cool.
I really like using GoCo. Its a good way to keep track of our office staff and track of their time off and keep up to date.

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

If you are looking for a one stop HR portal - look no further than GoCo.
We've not come across anything we're unhappy with so far.
From my perspective, Goco is suffering new-startup syndrome where they overloaded their staff and make promises they can't possibly deliver.
