Pros
Best option for the price- I have looked all over and Paycor was by far the most affordable. I wanted as simple as possible and this was perfect.
Overall I think it is a great business solution and time saver. The information captured and stored is very helpful for reporting and I am able to instantly generate useful information.
I like having the ability to customize reports, this saves me a lot of time. I also like the ease of the software and the great customer service Paycor provides.
Cons
Tracking and paying our Contractors/Consultants/1099NEC’s is still not working after several weeks and has cost us much money, stress, confusion, frustration and time.
Lack of customer service, lack of follow-through from support staff to set up system, missing major components of software, lack of response when requesting assistance.
Our "senior" implementation specialist was awful and did not fully set our system up.

Link Business Strategy with Individual Objectives, Measurement and Performance Reviews

Reviewed 3 years ago

We wanted a system to easily allow us to execute our Business Strategy through the OKR mechanism and link these to our individual Performance Planning and Review for staff. 7Geese fits that bill.

Pros

7Geese makes implementing Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) in your business fast and efficient. It compliments this with integration to Performance Reviews and other feedback mechanisms to create a holistically mechanism to integrate Business Objective setting with staff alignment and engagement. It's simple to use and the interface is fast.

Cons

OKRs are a great way to set goals and align staff. Initiatives, which are the strategic steps to get to the Objective, need to be understood and tracked. 7Geese does not have a mechanism for this yet. If it did, it would be almost perfect. It would also be great if the software had better 'at a point' reporting on OKRs, so that more traditional static monthly status reports could be generated.

Quick Learning Curve + Broadly Accessible

Reviewed 2 months ago
Pros

Rolling out the software to staff was quick and easy. It is accurate and responsive.

Cons

On rare occasions it will freeze up and not allow a log in/out for a timecard. Trying again in a few minutes always resolves the issue.

Vendor response

Thank you for the 5-star review, we are delighted to hear how smooth your implementation was. Sorry to hear about the freezes, we always suggest clearing your cache and cookies when this happens as it usually resolves the issue!

Stay away from Paycor - our experience has been disastrous

Reviewed 8 days ago

There is a complete lack of client service and once the product is sold, you are on your own to implement it on the terms they set. Once implementation is behind you the only available support is the help desk, and the resources are limited causing long wait times, and typically an inability to handle the problem presented. The customer service reps complain as well, but seemingly to no avail. We...

Pros

Integration proved not to be easy and was cumbersome; at this point we like little about this software.

Cons

The software is limited in functionality, the reporting is not robust and has gotten worse, the name fields are limited preventing one from capturing legal and professional names in the manner our employees and management desire, there is no common leave calendar which can be shared with all employees, and no holiday schedule which could be set up and instead a separate accrual plan had to be set up and assigned to each employee, we are beyond frustrated with Paycor and very much regret our decision to move to it as our HR/payroll system

Vendor response

Hi Julie, we apologize that you did not have the implementation or support experience that we have committed to deliver. I have shared your feedback with senior leadership which will be very valuable in bringing about positive change. We are continuing to heavily invest in both areas you mentioned to ensure we are consistently delivering the best customer experience possible. If you are still experiencing issues (for example your tax case) please email me with your client ID at paycorlistens@paycor.com so that I may escalate your account. I do want to caution that many tax notice cases require a lot of back and forth with the IRS to which we have no control over their response times.

Paycor Makes My Life So Much Easier

Reviewed 3 months ago

Highly satisfied with the product and I recommend it to everyone!

Pros

Paycor has given us a cost savings as well as time savings. The integration between Applicant Tracking (which is amazing) and Onboarding has reduced our time to find, hire and set up new employees. Payroll processing time is dramatically faster as well as the time clock integration makes payroll easier. There is a great analytic component. The team is very helpful and we are seeing huge savings over ADP.

Cons

The tax component has been the only part that has been a little difficult. The time to get a response from this team is pretty long and it's not possible to contact them directly.

Vendor response

Hello Cortney, thank you so much for your positive review! We are delighted to hear Paycor has saved you time and money and that you are enjoying our onboarding product. I do see your concern about the tax team and I wanted to let you know that we have hired many additional members to this team. We are continuing to make optimizations to our service model and invest in our customer experience to ensure we are consistently delivering the highest level of customer service. If you have any additional comments please feel free to reach out to me direct at paycorlistens@paycor.com as I believe your feedback could be very helpful.

Review of Paycor

Reviewed a month ago

I love the way straight forward everything is . I as a rule am following my hours in a rush and this stage makes it simple to make it happen and return to my work. Mentioning time off is simple too. I could have done without the absence of instructional exercises or client support on this stage.

Pros

1.Finance and HR highlights are incorporated2.Simple to set up and utilize3.Adjustable compensation matrix and pay hits4.Extensive variety of HR arrangements (e.g., time following, booking, remuneration arranging, learning the board, and profession arranging)5.Arrangement charges are deferred (as of this composition)

Cons

1.Expensive for mother and-pop organizations (up to 10 representatives)2.Doesn't uphold worldwide organizations; needs worldwide finance capacities3.PTO following and HR devices are accessible just in premium plans4.Enlisting, benefit organization, and time following instruments are paid additional items5.Client care delays; significant delays, in addition to certain reps are delayed to answer

Vendor response

Hello Imran, thank you for your review! We are delighted to hear how Paycor is empowering you as a leader to get back to your work.
