Newton - Good product for small to midsized corporate implementations

2016-12-12

Having said that, it works quite well in its function as a corporate applicant tracking system.

Pros

The Job Reqs Dashboard and the reporting are its strongest features

Cons

A little klunky in its design - needs some updating.

I love Newton!

2018-05-03

It also allows for easy to use reporting and keeps by applicant flow data very clean.

Pros

The Newton software allows us to post our position to our website and to the public at the same time and allows for us create "tracking links" to track the sources we use to advertise.

Cons

you can not save an email to draft if you have to hop off to do something else.

Laura Hardin

Lots to learn quickly, user friendly, good "Help" tools, and good impact on our organization

2018-04-26

less duplication of effort for those that apply multiple times to multiple positions; good tracking and visibility for our hiring teams.

Pros

Better posting reach, customizable for the most part, good support, good tracking and analytics, reasonable tool for our size organization (under 500 employees)

Cons

I do not have much to say in the cons department - usually when I have issues they are addressed or find some workaround

This software meets our organization's needs, but we do not utilize Newton to its full capacity.

2018-03-22

Less paper files now that we utilize an applicant tracking system.

Pros

Not overly complicated; easy for new Managers to pick up on quickly.

Cons

Newton's website is not incredibly user-friendly using Internet Explorer (frequent delays, freezing, etc).

Havent found anything I don't like yet

2018-04-26

Ease of onboarding new hires and applicant log.

Pros

Has dramatically reduced the amount of time to add new hires and log applicants. Like the reporting style as well.

Cons

duplicate entries should auto link, or not allow a person to apply for the same job in the same 12 months. They should receive an alert that they already applied and can resubmit and update their current application. Also a chance to do this in Spanish, but translate to English words

Keith Picthall

We are a 1,200 person company with many global offices. Newton was a perfect fit for our needs.

2018-04-06

Our job seekers have a much easier time with applying for jobs and since our business hires at over 40 locations internationally, having a simple job application process is key for getting applicants who do not speak English as a first language.

Pros

Our previous job posting and applicant tracking system was quite old and the user experience for both recruiters and applicants was far from ideal.

Cons

The main thing that we did not like was that the analytics dashboards and tracking were all Flash-based, but that was updated in the most recent platform update, so now our recruiters do not have to worry about Flash plug-in issues.

Well worth the investment

2018-04-05

Ease of use, and helped organize my applicants way better than the Indeed portal or other applicant tracking systems do out there.

Pros

It connects to our payroll, it provides a quick snapshot of our hiring practices and it maintains historical records of our applicants. We've had some apply multiple times and we now have a better way of maintaining documentation.

Cons

There has been a bit of a learning curve in a few areas. We utilize the system a little differently so I had to figure out how to use Newton in a way that worked for us *it wasn't hard*

Excellent tool for small to medium size businesses who need an internal applicant tracking system

2017-11-14

If you're looking for a low-cost applicant tracking system and don't have a large variation of jobs, then this tool will work for you.

Pros

The price is less than other applicant tracking systems.

Cons

The candidate workflow can also be confusing to some recruiters and hiring managers.

Cloud-based ATS that is great for managing recruiter work flow from both the Recruiter desk as well as the Manager side of metrics and such.

Very good application for the management of the candatos and improves the experience in the hiring

Pros

I really like its simplicity and integration with the outlook, its functions for data management of candidates are very useful.

Dennis Hettinger, PHR

One of the best ATS systems on the market

2018-02-08

Time savings, efficiency, better applicant experience, the list goes on and on.

Pros

When we first implemented Newton the user adoption was amazing. The interface is so user friendly that hiring managers were able to begin using the system within minutes.

Cons

One of the only shortcomings, which is already being addressed, is integration with other systems; background providers, HRIS systems, etc.

Used Newton for 3 years, easy to use helps me manage our applicant flow and candidate progress

2018-04-05

confidence that compliance is taken care of, never lose a canddiate's file, easy to post jobs on external sites.

Pros

Also the reports make pulling AAP reports easy as long as you keep on top of dispositioning candidates as you review them.

Cons

Would be nice to be able to download an open jobs report with candidates in progress so I can use it for other reports.
