Pros

Namely is the perfect solution for a small business like ours. It has saved me so much time compared to the previous solution we used for HR and payroll.
For the most part, it is very intuitive and user friendly. Being user friendly makes it easy for me as the admin but more importantly it makes it easy for my employees to navigate.
Friendly support staff, easy to get set-up, many self-service tools and customizations and always improving. I am very happy with Namely.

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

You can never get an support, answers, or solutions to urgent issues such as Namely back end payroll system errors. Errors that cost the company thousand of dollars.
I dislike that I keep having problems in logging into it.
I just think their customer service format changes frequently and it is confusing sometimes to keep up with their preferred communication etiquette.

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.
