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

We also appreciate that they are always moving forward with additions and improvements. This company is truly innovative and the best option out there today.
I love that Rippling makes payroll fun, with easy to use features to download documents, see paystubs, and fun design quirks that always bring a smile to my face.
Great product at a great value. Our transition from our previous product was seamless and changes are easy to make within program.

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

Rippling did not file my quarterly taxes and failed to pay federal taxes on payroll for a few staffers. I have been financially penalized by the government.
At this moment there are no aspects of this software that I dislike.
I have since transitioned to a new payroll provider that has had zero issue doing both those things correctly. Yet, I'm still being charged for Rippling despite them not doing their job correctly.

So far this software has been great. I get paid and can keep track of all my hours. I love using the app on my phone.

Pros

My company just switched to Rippling from using Namely. It was a really easy transition and I love the set up of Rippling.

Cons

I have not run into any trouble using Rippling yet. Our company switched and we have only had 3 pay periods so far... but everything is going well.

A decent app for employee management

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

As an employee, I really liked the streamlined process of selecting my insurance and benefits and how easy it is to sign employment documentation.

Cons

I would have to say the UI/UX. It seems a bit too plain and outdated. I've used similar software, such as Namely, which had a more modern look and easier to navigate.

Amazing HRIS software for Global Companies!

Reviewed a year ago

I'm a big fan of Rippling! We use this platform for US payroll, US benefit administration, a global HRIS, and in EU we additionally use is to maintain compliance in time tracking. It suits all of our needs and if we ever have a problem, customer success is there to fix it within minutes.

Pros

I can not speak highly enough about Rippling. After working with several other HRIS systems (Namely most recently) and PEOs (ADP and Trinet most recently) I am highly impressed by both the quality of the platform as well as the customer support.

Cons

At times, the software can be a bit complex to use. But customer support is always there to help you. One feature I would love to see is a better HR dashboard, the reporting is wonderful but it would be great to simply log in and look at things like attrition, change over time, etc.

Rippling is a must have

Reviewed 4 years ago

Overall, very positive. The Rippling team has been very responsive and helpful along our journey. The platform made an immediate and positive impact on payroll, benefits, and onboarding processes. I have evaluated numerous HR/payroll platforms (Gusto, Bamboo HR) and implemented Namely at my last company. Rippling is an improvement over all of them. Rather than trying to offer mediocre functionality across a breadth of items, they are focused on being the best at core features (payroll, onboarding/offboarding, benefits, IT lite, etc.) and then integrate with best-in-class apps for items like performance reviews, expense management,...).

Pros

1) Technology that makes my life better 2) Responsive team/customer service 3) Makes my team happy (because of #1 and #2). The thoughtfulness in workflows helps a lot.

Cons

1) I fear that the cost could very quickly grow -- initial pricing on modules is usually $/employee/month...regardless of how many people actively use the module. The team has been responsive to requests for different pricing schemes. 2) Data visibility (e.g. compensation info) is a bit limited on flexibility. It is either at the admin level (everything) or general user level (limited visibility). I expect this will change over time, but some more intermediate steps would be great (e.g. manager can see comp info, but not SSN, bank info, etc.).

Vendor response

Hey Douglas, Thanks so much for your feedback, we're always making improvements, so look out for updates around data visibility.
