Kenexa Review

2020-09-25

This is a great took for evaluating candiadtes, especially their tech skills. They help us to identify the good candidates that we want to focus on.

Pros

We mostly use the Kenexa Prove-it feature for employee onboarding and testing.

Cons

Although the test results are very easy to read, I wish the results could be broken down into more categories.

IBM Kenexa - Assess

2018-11-02

Our company has been able to give more detail about our applicants to customer companies, and been able to verify an applicant's skill level prior to them beginning a job.

Pros

This software integrates into our database, and has a very wide variety of assessments that can be given to potential employees.

Cons

For a time, the software was not integrating cleanly, and would often interrupt a testing session, causing us to lose out on candidates who became frustrated with the process.

It's 2017 and time to move on

2017-01-24

Simply put, this LMS is outdated and far from user-friendly. I say this when I compare to the competing products as well as my own experiences being the administrator for our company. It took IBM over 2 weeks to even believe me when I was having an issue. It took another month for them to actually get it resolved, even though it was an escalated issue affecting out production environment. As a customer, I can't believe that it took them that long. I struggle to find much that is good about this LMS. It's restrictive and costs an exorbitant amount of money for the limited functionality that it provides. I believe this product could be something much more than it is. But, I don't think IBM sees it that way. I've looked at the changes from over the past year or two and... I'm very disappointed. They try and make a big deal out of the upgrades to new versions but... little changes are actually made. I feel like IBM is simply milking this for what they can. IBM either needs to step up their game and do a big re-vamp of this product or drop it. Either way, though, I'm confident that they only have customers at this point because they are stuck in the contracts.

Pros

They do offer, albeit limited, access to a REST API. You can customize some of the UI elements (looks and placement), though little documentation exists.

Cons

Difficult and Limited Reporting Slow turn response time from Support Limited SCORM Support (Supports up to 2004 3rd Edition, no xAPI support) Difficult to manage organizations and users (particularly in bulk) The interface out of the box looks like it's from the 90's (again, it's 2017) Did I mention the cost?

Honestly, look around at other vendors. This cannot be something that's helpful to you. So many other vendors offer so much more for a much lower cost.

Kenexa Talent Suite

Through the deployment of user-generated objects like candidate forms, workflows, and automated rules I can use the BrassRing system to build a self-contained Executive Recruitment practice in a system that is otherwise configured to process 10,000+ hires in a year.

You will need an experienced administrator because GSC advice subpar or sometimes just incorrect. Your administrator needs to have the knowledge to determine if advice advantageous. Best advice is to build a network of peer administrators.
