Cornerstone HR Pricing, Features, Reviews and Alternatives

Cornerstone HR product overview

What is Cornerstone HR?

Very few businesses operate from a single location. Remote employees and offices across time zones and countries mean multiple sets of regulations and employee datasets to manage. It is imperative that organizations get a global view of their employee data for more strategic planning against their business objectives. Cornerstone's HR suite is a flexible, cost-effective, alternative to rigid, expensive HR systems. Cornerstone HR manages all your global workforce data in one central location with robust administration, planning and visualization capabilities. Go live in a matter of weeks, at a fraction of the cost. Quickly get the answers your business needs to move forward.

    Pros
    The ability to customize and create templates that work for you and your organization. Its not always perfect but for the most part the flexibility provided was really helpful during our design phase.

    Matt M.

    I've used this for its various applications internally for my company and its a great tool if you know how to use it. I can see it being great for Universities just from my own perspective.

    I like that some are interactive, some are videos, some have quizzes. There is a variety of different trainings, which is nice.

    Cons
    Difficult to navigate and users find it very frustrating to use.

    The people who filled in for them seemed overwhelmed and as a result there was a lack of communication.

    It's also proven to be difficult to get the two systems to "talk" to each other.

    We use Cornerstone for all of our training needs and overall it's not bad

    Reviewed 3 years ago
    Pros

    If you're like me and you work in a larger enterprise company, you'll be using Cornerstone for all of your training needs. it's simple, easy to use/navigate and great for tracking all of your current trainings

    Cons

    There are times where the material may be buggy, but it has nothing to do with Cornerstone but with the trainer developing the material

    Good product, but need to update support

    Reviewed 3 years ago
    Pros

    The ability to customize and create templates that work for you and your organization. Its not always perfect but for the most part the flexibility provided was really helpful during our design phase.

    Cons

    The customer support left a lot to be desired. Hard to reach reps, cases took too long to resolve, and at times they just did not match their SLA. Also their community page was hard to follow which made it hard to pull useful info.

    Cornerstone OnDemand - Honest Opinion

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    Great tool if you know how to use it. I personally see it at it's best for education institutions.

    Pros

    I've used this for its various applications internally for my company and its a great tool if you know how to use it. I can see it being great for Universities just from my own perspective. Good for a corporations learning for employees but can be frustrating for the customer who doesn't know what they're getting into. There can be somewhat of a learning curve going in and that takes time on the UX to adapt and use the product which can be a con because they need to use their time to understand when its not as intuitive.

    Cons

    Restating my comment above, the only con would be a customer trying to learn and adopt usage of it which would take up some of their time and could be frustrating and cumbersome if they're not as tech savvy.

    Talent Management at its finest

    Reviewed 6 years ago

    Cornerstone is the best and most comprehensive solution that I have seen for talent management. I have used the LMS, Performance, Succession, Connect and Extended Enterprise modules. CSOD continues to make enhancements to their product, especially with Learning, Connect and Performance, but where they are lacking is in enhancements to their mobile app and to their Succession module. While I do find...

    An integrated HRIS experience for your employees

    Reviewed 3 years ago
    Pros

    My institution uses several modules for Cornerstone and as an end-user that is what appeals to me most. I can apply for positions, sign-up for trainings, share kudos with colleagues, and view performance goals and reviews all in one place. I'm really interested to see how my organization leverages the platform in the future.

    Cons

    Cornerstone seems user-friendly at first glance, but this is only the case for the most frequently accessed items. My institution also seems to have regular outages and issues with supporting the system.
