Has potential, but it was not used properly

2019-10-28

Overall, if you have good people to get it going then go for it, but if your org isn't tech savvy then maybe you need another software when someone does more of the work for you so you can't mess it up.

Pros

I feel like there were areas that could be used to motivate employees and get the right people involved on approvals and moving forward with raises.

Cons

It never worked like it should. This is not Cornerstone's fault, I think it was the organization who set this up maybe wasn't savvy enough get the settings right. They made lots of errors they had to fix.

Products to address all phases of employee lifecycle

2015-11-09

In addition, the engineers have always delivered early or on time when we expect custom work to be done to our portal. The cons may be more specific for our unique situation.

Not a huge fan...

2018-08-28

Pros

Cornerstone is easy to use and for the most part it's intuitive. It integrates well with our institution's HR systems.

Cons

Cornerstone seems to have quite a bit of down time for maintenance.

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

2018-07-09

Pros

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

An integrated HRIS experience for your employees

2018-04-09

Pros

I can apply for positions, sign-up for trainings, share kudos with colleagues, and view performance goals and reviews all in one place.

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.

Good product, but need to update support

2018-12-06

Pros

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.

Currently, we use the Core, Learning, Performance and Succession modules and each has impacted our workforce and internal workflow processes in their own ways.

Pros

Being able to take necessary trainings on my own time. I like that some are interactive, some are videos, some have quizzes.

No complaints about the software itself.

Cornerstone HR

2019-01-24

We (I) am open to anything that can make our HR programming easier. This may be more suitable for a company like ADP, but we'll see. - Thank you

Pros

The software enables our company along with ADP to maintain and have better control of our Human Resources needs. It is to use and they are very supportive.

Cons

The software is a bit complex but most HRIS programs are. One you are up and running it is fine. We have sa trial version for now.
