Pros

I appreciate how comprehensive it is - I'm happy that it handles our taxes as well as manages data flow to our benefits carriers through Carrier Connect.
I find the application easy to use and very straightforward. The vendor team has great customer service and is very helpful.
Splendid performance and options for human capital management. Offers great educational/professional development options.

Pros

Great overall quality of platform for money spent with good customer service and support throughout.
ELMO system is very user friendly and people who you will get to deal with are very nice.
The library has provided a good base and saved us a lot of time, effort and costs in the creation of basic courses as we did not have to start from scratch.

Cons

Coupled with the added burden of the 1095-c and the need to manually update various records because Ascentis has software issues, it is disappointing.
I did not handle payroll but our payroll specialist said it was missing features our old basic software could handle such as different pay rates for employees who work different shifts.
We were tired of having vendors add ridculous fees and for stifling our ability to make back-end changes. In addition, they made numerous mistakes in processing taxes and garnishments.

Cons

If it was not for the 3 year investment I have no doubt that I would have pulled the pin by now. Do not use this as your payroll solution, otherwise you will end up with headache after headache.
We were sold the wrong modules on their recommendation. Nothing worked properly uploading documents function didn't work.
The course building application is woefully restricting and dated. We don't use it anymore, and create eLearning modules in a different program to upload into ELMO.
