Pros

The software is clean and simple and serves as a great resource for company information, coworker contacts, and a comprehensive company calendar outlining anniversaries, birthdays, and days off.
I hadn't used it until my current company and I am really happy to be able to utilize it. There are so many great features and I love it.
BambooHR has some great integrations (Slack, for instance) that allow me to see when my co-workers are out of the office or even celebrating an anniversary or birthday.

Pros

This are a application it is give you good opportunity for you carrere best job opportunity easily and comfortable i got job by this application in rapipay as sales Executive.
My overall experience was amazing. I love Indeed it is a awesome website to find jobs on.
Indeed is a good online portal for candidates to search for jobs and recruiters to find the best talent available in the market.

Cons

Some of the updates would cause havoc on the system and delay some of our onboarding.
The only con I have noticed is from guys in HR complaining that it does not provide in-house payroll management.
At times I struggle with the signing portion of documents.

Cons

There are companies that will spam you with requests. I ended up getting 50+ emails a day from a company and I really hated that.
This outrageous action has harmed my company by delaying our hiring process, damaging our relationship with potential staff and making us look unprofessional to potential employees.
That you cannot erase messages that have been sent that you can only archive these messages. That you can run into some fraudulent job offers on this site if your aware.

Using BambooHR and its Great!

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

Its easy and simple to use and also posts our jobs on Indeed!

Cons

Could be a little more robust in the CRM side of things.....geared toward a recruitment agency rather than just an internal HR tool.

BambooHR around o'clock

Reviewed 3 years ago

With BambooHR I organize all important information, for work, can see opportunities of colleagues , communicate with coworkers, send my requests and I have to say that this software make the business life much more structured and easy, because it's available to use everywhere and anytime you need!

Pros

With this software I can keep all own important information in one place (like documents, contracts, phone numbers etc) and manage with work benefits, vacations , extra-time working hours from any place at any time . As well I can see some information about my colleagues and with whom I can contact in any department of my work place, well, this is really useful!

Cons

I like indeed all in this software) but I would like more if the searching ability there becomes easier

Time-off and hiring made easy

Reviewed 8 months ago

Since we started using this software it has become so much easier for our team to request time off, see who else is off, and sign internal documents. When reviewing job applicants it's easy to funnel them into different parts of the process as well as continue with the onboarding process as wlel.

Pros

Reviewing applicants is made easy with fantastic integrations into sites like Indeed and more. Tracking time off and requesting time off is simple!

Cons

The only complaint I have is that I wish it had even more integrations.

Great company, great software. Very happy with our purchase.

Pros

The look, functionality and features in this software are incredible. The Bamboo team was also amazing in assisting us with getting the program set-up for our mid-sized business. The job posting features and email templates are integrated with Indeed which simplifies the process.

Cons

There is nothing that I don't like about this software.

User-Friendly and Loads of Features

Reviewed 5 years ago

It's multi-functional. Although it has a number of issues, even just paying to use it for job postings and on-boarding has been a cost-effective alternative to posting directly on Indeed, LinkedIn, etc., or using a dedicated recruiting platform such as Workable or ZipRecruiter

Pros

Easily my favorite part of this software is the on-boarding functionality. Being able to auto-generate an offer letter and attach W4s, I9s, etc. for signature drastically cuts down on my time, as well as time that normally needs to be set aside for employees on their first day.

Cons

When refreshing job postings after 10 days, BambooHR does not prevent people that have previously applied to reapply for the position. Unlike some software that is more ATS dedicated, like Workable, there is no option to just auto-filter out these repeat applicants. At times, this has led to a rejected candidate being contacted for an interview after having already interviewed and being passed on.

Great product helps us track our employee training. Simple, real-time reports.

Reviewed 5 years ago

Streamlined our onboarding process. Eliminated paper employee files.

Pros

There are many integration features. Very cool how open job postings are shared with Indeed and other job sites. There are built in auto-responses to applicants. Great to be able to upload and store training documents and also allow employees access to them so they don't have to constantly call HR for copies.

Cons

I wish it had an internal communication system - like e-mail. It would be nice to be able to have group conversations through the app/site itself.
