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

I love that it integrates with our ATS (Jazz HR) so flowing hired over is super easy. Our employees have a lot of documents to sign upon hire and having it all done electronically makes life so easy.
This is a pretty good product, super user friendly and you don't need too much support usually. The team was good about setting it up with relatively few hiccups.
Our employees also find GoCo to be very user friendly. They also have wonderful customer service.

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

The reports sometimes freeze - I have close out the browser and reopen, or refresh. It can be frustrating, especially if it takes 10+ minutes to pull a reports.
We've not come across anything we're unhappy with so far.
I may have limited access but every time I would click on the Calendar nothing would come up.
