Pros

The ONE thing I can say is the customer support team is very nice and they TRY to help as best they can.
Overall the product is leaps and bounds better than where we came from. I do feel like the company is always striving to improve and connect- which makes it a nice working relationship.
Overall, ICIMS Recruit is outstanding software. With a few minor adjustments, this software has the potential to be the very best in the industry.

Pros

That has been fixed in Absorb 5, which is very good news. Administrators find the Admin interface fairly easy to use, but again we're excited about seeing the changes that come with Absorb 5.
The company itself is great to work with. Their customer service staff is so nice and friendly, and the project manager and account manager I worked with helped me every step of the way.
This LMS is the best or near the top of providers and tools if you use instructor-led and online learning. For the pricing, you won't find a better tool.

Cons

I can't ever seem to figure out why some hires do not populate in reports which is frustrating and can lead to missed new hires.
There is a limit to the amount of characters that can be used. This is understood, but it seems awful slim and limits the usefulness of the software.
The fact that candidates are sorted into the stage they're at in the interview process is confusing.

Cons

Only downside for our institution was the inability to "hide" completed courses from the My Courses list.
This is a simple but very frustrating complaint I have about this program.
My biggest disappointment was that that the multi-tenancy or segregating by departments did not function as we expected causing us to have to adjust our offering and prices for clients.
