Pros

Easy to use, and light interface. It helping me to identify my developmental opportunities and is an important part of a succession planning process.
It's saved us considerable time at performance reviews. The Insights function gives us great visibility enabling us to take a proactive and positive approach to performance management.
The best part of WorkCompass is the way that it automates alerts in relation to the milestones that you set. It has an easy to use interface and is very reliable.

Pros

Reporting is extremely easy to use and read with the back end having the ability to push workflows and emails to outstanding items. PeopleStreme are extremely responsive to our queries and issues.
There is greater clarity for all about their futures and were their development is headed.
Our experience has been great, training was excellent and we love the application suite.

Cons

Inadequacy to warn the user in case of an error for example if there more than two plans for an individual.
The interface is very uncomfortable. The comments box on the right are tiny and difficult to work with.
I found the document difficult to navigate. Many staff were confused on how to use the software as well.

Cons

The product is expensive for the lack of functionality and the presentation of the modules.
With all the new functionality being released it is hard to keep up.
Nothing, other than we wish they had more US based support. Initially we thought we had a lot of bugs, but as it turned out it was more just administrative user error.
