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

The enrollment process is simple and their customer service is great as well. The extra benefits through ADP (things like cell discounts and discounted movie tickets) are also great.
ADPTS is a good solution for a small organization with minimal HR capacity, our HR partner on the ADP side, Tarena, was AMAZING and the interface itself was fairly easy to manage on the admin side.
The software is very easy to use BUT the service and customer support that assist our account is SUPERB.

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

They outright refuse to provide information on pricing, so it is very difficult to compare to other similar products or keeping in house. Other PEOs are up front about what you are paying for.
Trying to see accrued time for vacations is a little difficult and sometimes will display an odd number.
It can be a little difficult for employees to navigate at first. There are multiple steps.

Nice and easy to use

Reviewed 5 years ago

It has been nice so far. I used to use ADP, and BambooHR is a much better option!

Pros

It's really easy to use and I like being able to see my peers Time off request calendar. It is nice with how easy the Time Off request feature is. I also like being able to sign in with my Google account. In a growing company like the one I'm in, I like the feature we are using that shows the new people and a few things about them i.e. favorite food, favorite vacation spot.

Cons

Nothing really that I can think of at the moment. Our design is a little ugly, but I'm guessing that's something that the admins can adjust.

It’s really robust and intuitive. It just makes sense. UX/UI is great. Custom reporting is a great feature. Allows you to integrate with so many softwares that are out there now a days, especially ones for start ups.

Bamboo is good but I'm more comfortable with ADP

Reviewed 5 years ago

Good product with good potential, but overall not my favorite.

Pros

Bamboo is great for being able to find other users within my organization and having a place for documents sent out by the company. Seeing how people report and easily accessing information I need is very useful.

Cons

Maybe it's just because my company puts most of the important info in ADP, but I find a lot of the time that Bamboo HR doesn't really have the things I need or am looking for. I'm more likely to reach out to my HR team or go to ADP than I am to think to look through things in Bamboo as I'm not very familiar with the best practices in it.

Pros

They have the best customer service department ever! This team is incredibly knowledgeable about the product and it's capabilities. The product is so user-friendly, and implementation took weeks rather than months with most other vendors.

Cons

The applicant tracking module is bare-bones (but better than nothing). And extremely reasonable. Right now, this product does not integrate with our payroll system. They are working on looking into integration with ADP Payroll Plus, however.

Great for HR Employee Tracking

Reviewed 6 years ago

BambooHR is my go-to platform when I need to look up an employee's name/team/picture/promotion information and company level information. It's a good resources for new employees as well because they can get access to org charts, promotion dates and use the platform to request time off.

Pros

Easy to use, good for building org charts, tracking HR/onboarding documents, tracking employee PTO, and changes to compensation/promotions/title changes/salary increases. Has great integrations through other software such as Greenhouse and ADP. Overall a great HRIS. The interface is straight forward and easy to use.

Cons

I haven't had too many negatives with my minimal experience using the BambooHR platform as an employee and recruiter. I guess if I had to nit-pick, it would be that it's not as easy to take integrations from Greenhouse and set the right notifications when a new employee is created-- it seemed to really confuse our HR team and create extra work to cleanup, so we ended up turning that feature off-but might not be a knock on BambooHR--maybe just the integration itself.

It's the most clean looking, easy to use HR tool that I've ever used or seen. I was able to go into my bank account information and select the exact amount of money that I wanted put into my savings account, which was the best thing ever. It also was so simple to request time off, made all of the stressful things so easy.

Cons

That I'm no longer using it. My company switched about 5 months ago to ADP and it's a nightmare. I went from loving it my HR platform to request time off and make changes to my paychecks to savings accounts, to absolutely dreading it.

Amazing & Customizable HR Platform to Meet All Your Organization's Needs

Reviewed 2 years ago

Working with BambooHR has been fantastic, and they continue to meet our needs. We are so happy with the decision to implement the platform that we transition our Time Tracking and Payroll over from ADP. We love their focus on continuous improvement and their outstanding customer service.

Pros

The platform is highly customizable. BambooHR has an outstanding customer service team. They continuously look to improve and add additional features to include a COVID-19 tab, employee satisfaction survey, Reporting, employee well-being survey, 360 performance reviews through adding the feedback functions and more. I love their monthly pulse survey and their webinars that educate administrators on how to meet employees needs.

Cons

Not being able to include the Executive Director/CEO in the Feedback Assessment process for performance management.

BambooHr was not for us

Reviewed 5 years ago

I do not think it is for us, although my team is still using it, it would make sense for us to find another workflow for paid days and requests.

Pros

I liked that it was easy to figure out the platform and you can look at one dashboard to see who will be out of the office for the day.

Cons

The accrual methods were difficult for my payroll team to figure out, and we had a hard time with integration between ADP. It doesn't really make sense to use two programs to do this in my opinion, when there are programs that will do both benefit driven days & payroll.

Modern Easy to use HR Software

Reviewed 4 years ago

Love it as an end user, but I don't think my accounting/finance/HR team loves it all that much.

Pros

I love the simple, modern UI. It seems easy to find everything I need all in one place. Most other HR softwares that I'm familiar with have more features, but clunky old UIs that make it hard to do what you're trying to do.

Cons

My general understanding is that BambooHR may be better for end users, but not for administrators. At my company, once we got too big we started using ADP for most HR functions and scaled back quite a bit what tasks were being solved by BambooHR because it wasn't as fully featured from an administrator standpoint.

Excellent choice for SMB's

Reviewed 3 years ago

Needed an affordable HR system that could do everything we needed it to. For the most part it does, but we have to use ADP for our Payroll to satisfy that aspect of our business, including our time keeping and vacation. We use a different Applicant Tracking System for recruiting and hiring, but everything else goes through BambooHR.

Pros

The user interface is perfectly logical and easy to navigate. Very simple format with ability to handle complex scenarios.

Cons

The time keeping and payroll features are bolt ons. It would be nice to have fully integrated, inhouse designed and operated options for a 100% complete all-in-one system.

Review of BambooHR

Reviewed 8 years ago
Pros

The ease of use and implementation time it took from signing the agreement to being up and running.

Cons

In my opinion, it is still under development to truly compete against some of the features other players in the market offer. I've worked with SilkRoad, Sage Abra, ADP, Ultimate Pro, SalesForce (HR version), Zenefits, etc. and while some are better than others, in general, these vendors provide a robust solution for the HR needs of a department.

Love BambooHR!

Reviewed 6 years ago

BambooHR has made my life as an HR/Talent Acquisition professional so much easier! I have more time to concentrate on other important day to day duties. Thank you, BambooHR!

Pros

- Easy to use ATS - Customer service is professional and top notch. The employees genuinely seem like they're happy working there! - They have payroll now! We switched from ADP to their payroll because it's just that much easier having everything on one interface. - They partner with a bunch of companies for expense reporting, time keeping, health insurance, training, etc. so you can add the services you'd like. - Affordable for the quality you receive.

Cons

- BambooHR is a fairly new so there are a few links but they do their best to make improvements and listen to their customers. They even come out with a monthly newsletter that touches on improvements they've made in the month and improvements they plan to make for the upcoming month.

Reporting 1) Unable to extract UNMASKED direct deposit accounts on any report 2) Reporting tool is too limited and cannot easily create calculated fields, e.g., If in cost center X, then Y 3) Unable to create meaningful point-in-time reports similar to ADP 4) Audit reports are too limited, e.g., I need a report that would show onboarding and incomplete tasks or a report that shows who has not completed W4s Design 1) Unable to realign where objects appear, e.g., EEO data should be on the personal tab, not job tab

I used it as a beginner user and as I grew in the company became an admin in the software.

Pros

The ease of navigation was the thing I enjoyed the most. Everything was self explanatory. I didn't need any coaching or training class on how to use the program, even after I was given admin access to approve time cards, approve PTO, and deny certain requests.

Cons

The price. To my understanding, my company stopped using it because it was costing it too much money. We decided to go with another software called BambooHR.
