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 ease of and accessibility of reporting and the self-service features for employees, including the always-expanding app, is wonderful.
It is user friendly and real time tracking which is awesome!!! Super easy to learn and teach.
I really like how robust the system is -there is so much that you can do to help drive efficiency and accuracy. I also like that is relatively intuitive to use for employee side.

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

Mgr was always complaining that she didn't find our notes. It was frustrating and caused ill feelings.
Too difficult to use and understand its set-up and costly, poor customer support to solve problems.
Implementation struggles and lack of cohesion between product team and implementation team.

BambooHR

Bamboohr is the most affordable HCM for SMBs

Reviewed a year ago

Our customers will find BamobooHR to be a simple and straightforward platform. Administratively, we have a number of different systems that are automated, which reduces the amount of time spent on routine tasks.

Pros

When compared to competing HCM solutions, BambooHR's implementation is a breeze. BambooHR also provides access to a vast ecosystem of complementary tools.

Cons

Only the support staff can make adjustments to the settings. The system administrator cannot create new fields. Salary information is not concealed and can be seen by anyone who views the user profile, even though no record of such activity is kept.
