Pros: I use Yammer to link to fellow employees of Transcribeme. So far, Yammer has been extremely easy to navigate and I have not seen any glitches during my two years working with it. Yammer uses columns to organize your different feeds which helps with clarity. In a quick sweep of my feed, I can see the app directory, any new activity in all my groups, suggested managment or key team members to follow on Yammer, etc. It allows me to get live updates fast and easy so that I always know what is happening with the company I freelance transcribe for.

I like that Yammer allows each company to tailor it's virtual work atmosphere to it's own needs. When I became a freelance transcriptionist, I was really worried about the isolation that comes with the online work. Yammer, though, seems to have completely changed that for me and the rest of the Transcribeme team, I think. Easy information share and very socially oriented, Yammer is a great app for the work-at-home crowd.

Cons: All the positives said, I think Yammer could work on it's design. Maybe it needs some modern touches and perhaps more social features. An amazing app that brings work-at-home people together could always do with more social features ie. a live-chat feature, customizable themes, more inviting interface because it's really important to catch the attention of freelancers so that they are more apt to frequent the site.

Overall: Yammer has been so amazing at allowing the freelance workforce to come together and really discuss current issues and information about the work. Otherwise, we'd all be so isolated and unable to work together to enhance the finished product of transcripts. That information share is so, so important to not only get the best work to the client, but also to learn more and advance individually in the field. It links me to fellow transcriptionists and gives the human contact that makes up a huge portion of actually being to tolerate long hours of work. So thumbs-up, Yammer.

Pros: Provides an easy to use platform for communication and sharing. The relatively limited feature set keeps interacting with Yammer a straight forward experience. For our purposes Yammer provides a great substitute for the "Doctor's Lounge" that our physicians miss since we are a much larger organization than just a few years ago. Physicians can, in physician only environments, discuss patient cases and ask for advice and referrals to other specialists from a much larger community of their peers than are available at their physical location.

Cons: Because Yammer does not seem to have all the same connections to our AD database as other applications in Office 365 getting everyone onto the platform can be challenging. Creating and managing groups can be daunting as the platform is open. Controlling the types of communication on the platform can also be difficult and channel moderators have to stay vigilant. This does mean that the platform is creating new work for those staff chosen as channel moderators, and depending on adoption and usage this can be a significant commitment of time on a regular basis.

Pros: Yammer is a terrific way to communicate with people in your company when you don't have a traditional office setting, where employees work from different areas. You can have conversations and get up with people immediately, plus have various "buckets" to divide up work tasks, or have different networks for different departments. Uploaded and downloading is easy, and it's a repository for valuable files. To have a platform where everyone can be on the same page is invaluable. And with smart phones, pushes can allow one to be notified immediately of any update or conversation. Has similar feature to Facebook, so it's easy to learn. Again, a great virtual office!

Cons: Honestly, there are very few cons, sometimes it won't let you upload or download items, but that is a rare occasion. Sometimes the search isn't reliable.

Overall: Great benefits, it's a wonderful virtual office

Pros: Yammer is a complementary tool for sharing information, tutorials and documents inside an intranet. It can complement SharePoint's content management experience for a company. You can create a profile there and interact to other employees in a "social media" like tool. It has many features to create a blog, a tutorial, a wiki and many other things that can help your company to not lose knowledge as the teams keeps changing. New employees can find information and get a smaller learning curve by reading articles that more experienced people may have written on daily tasks or difficult problems that may arise.

Cons: I guess its adhesion was too low. In my company many people just don't like to use it because they don't know what is it exactly. It's such a great tool but looks like it was left aside. Maybe Microsoft could do a little marketing to help it grow and be more known by people all around the world. Maybe Microsoft Teams is more important to they...

Overall: I'm not using Yammer for a long period now, but when I did, I liked it. It has a great potential to be a content manager and a great company social media tool (communication channel).

Pros: First of all, its included with no additional cost on our Microsoft Ofice 365 subscriptions, so no additional expenses. It's very intuitive, nobody needs to be taught how to use it. It has a very simple feature set allowing us to improve our internal collaboration. Thre's now no excuse for not knowing what's happening in the Company. We can easily do simple polls and congratulate our colleagues for any personal o professional accomplishment or event.

Cons: Of course, everyone expected it to be a fully functional private facebook, which is not the case, there are a million Faceboo features that don't exist in Yammer, and we don't think we need them at all.

If only, a better interface for uploading bunches of pictures and organize them in albums, since right now we upload only selected pictures one at a time. Or we share links to sharepoint paths.

Overall: I like it a lot, we've managed to get the people really involved in sharing what they're doing, problems they face, solutions they implement, their personal and team accomplishments.

Pros: It is very easy to use, uploading files is easy. There is a Yammer app for your smartphone and you can receive pushes to email as well as the Yammer app so you always stay up-to-date. It allows to set up different networks and groups for different things through your organization. It is a great tool to communicate and stay organized.

Cons: There is nothing that I dislike about Yammer. It has so many wonderful benefits. I highly recommend this as a virtual office. It is low cost and for those that work remote, it is a great communication tool.

Overall: File sharing, communication, collaboration, organization. It is a terrific virtual office tool that I highly recommend.

Pros: I love yammer. My company uses Yammer to help employees stay connected and informed. There are several employee started 'groups'. These are common interest groups such as book lovers. We have been able to share and connect with Yammer. We post books we've read and send books through interoffice mail which has been fun. We also have an all company news alerts as well. I love that Yammer has an app for the phone as well.

Cons: With any "social media" platform you will always have the habitual complainers but that is just what it is. The program works great

Pros: Yammer is feature rich, with all the features you'd come to expect from Facebook included: Create a profile, add a picture, connect with colleagues, news feed, profile walls, add photos, tag photos, alert users with notifications, etc. If you're looking for a social network for your company this one does a decent, though generic, job. Also they have a freemium edition which has most of the functionality you'd need.

Cons: The main challenge with Yammer is getting people to use it. All the benefits of social networking in the company (knowledge transfer, communication, community building) can be real and valuable, but I've seen many attempts to create an active online community fail at my company. I think only with strong executive buy in will Yammer actually be valuable for a company, and all the great features Yammer adds can't fix this. We didn't have that executive buy-in and Yammer, Chatter, Flowdock, all failed to gain traction

Recommendations to other buyers: Ask yourself if you really have exec buy in to push adoption of Yammer (or any internal social network). These networks do not just create themselves - they need ongoing TLC especially from execs.

Pros: Yammer is fully equipped to serve as my network's central point of contact and communication. We have an international (dispersed) set of folks in my network, and we chose Yammer to be our communication hub. We have set up one work space for each work group - and another for our coordinating team. Not only do we use the group spaces, but the messaging between Yammer group members is extremely efficient and secure. We can write to individuals or create groups for ongoing within-Yammer communication. So even though we have to maintain security of information due to the part of the world we use this in, we have confidence in the security aspects. I also use the iOS Yammer app to access my account and messages.

Cons: I suppose it's meant to be a feature, but in a private message, if I type the name of someone who is also in our Yammer group into the body of a private message, Yammer automatically hyperlinks that person's name in the message as well as adds their name to the send-to list. While this is efficient, and while I can "undo" the link, it could I suppose cause some awkward situations if the sender never intended for that person to receive the message.

Pros: If I talk about positive aspects of yammer, I would say this is the most advanced product that facilitates people while communications as well as easy ways of sharing information with one another. In order to accomplish tasks immediately, It divides work tasks and there are several networks that deal different departments. One can have access on yammer simply by making profile, afterwards you can have immediate interaction with other coworkers. It is super easy to use without taking specific classes. Yammer app is highly recommended to keep the people up-to-date.

Cons: It is working nice. I hardly have to see issues with it. One of the cons is that sometimes I have to face hurdles during uploading or downloading items. But I do not think that it is a big deal. I hope its efficient company will overcome this issue and I will be seeing better results as well.

Overall: I would like to say Yammer is serving a wide range of people in all means by providing fantastic ways of collaboration. I would say if one wants to run business effectively, there should be need of Yammer.

Pros: Yammer is very user friendly! You can use it with little to no training at all. We use Yammer to share ideas, updates, and get answers to questions enterprise wide. We use it to collaborate on active projects in different departments. Sharing a post is super simple and we love the social aspect of it similar to Facebook. You can like and respond to anyone's post. Being able to create groups is great so we can segregate information that is only relevant to those groups. We love the ability to file share as well, this helps us stay productive and on task with work.

Cons: There isn't really anything I don't like about Yammer. We use is consistently throughout the organizations. I think the only thing that comes to mind is the search feature could be enhanced.

Pros: Easy to use, user friendly, brings individuals together quickly, increases communication.

Cons: This may be a quirk of how it was set up for our organization and my inexperience with the product, but initially there was too much communication regarding issues, departments, etc. that didn't at all apply to me so I tuned out. Understanding how to use groups is critical.

Pros: We use Yammer to be informed of what is going on in our company for all departments globally. Issues reported and how to solve them, project updates, tips, or any comments are included in the yammer posts. You are able to join specific department's yammer threads if you are interested in a specific area of the company. The daily summaries allow you to know what is going on without having to search for information.

Cons: As we are a global company, I often receive updates in other languages. It would be nice to be able to filter yammer posts by language or have a link within yammer to translate the message.

Pros: Use this mainly for getting customer's questions answered. If customer asks question where I don't have information readily available, I can type it into the correct yammer group category and the product manager will answer it quickly. Much faster than emailing.

Cons: If organization doesn't make groups correctly, it could be hard to know where to post or make sure the right audience is seeing the conversation. The yammer inbox is also a bit redundant. I don't love that posts are listed by algorithm rather than by chronology and there is no way to change the settings to make it do that either.

Overall: Getting questions answered for my customers.

Pros: - really slick app! easy to navigate, even better than the browser version

- it is like Facebook, which is polarizing to employees who prefer Slack and other more "Twitter-like" communication tools

- in the admin view, I've been pleased with the level of detailed analytics

Cons: The organization and search-ability leave something to be desired. Sorting is strictly chronological, which makes it hard to find specific posts later on.

Overall: excellent analytics, easy to use interface, an opportunity to have various threads in groups across the company

Comments: It took forever to get Yammer approved at the last government agency I worked for. Public record requests are scary, especially in Washington State. If we miss one little documents, there are big fines involved. I think we have the steepest fines in the country. Any social media or messaging tools must be vetted carefully to ensure we can easily store, search, and compile records - and the data we need to pull depends on the request. It could be a request for everything a particular employee has done in a timeframe or anything related to a random topic. After a very long Yammer vetting process, we discovered it was not scary and it wouldn't take much to make the data requests doable.

Functionality wise it's similar to Facebook, which most people use now... even folks who are not comfortable with new technology, so there's really no learning curve. You can open it up with a few guidelines and communications, and it will grow on its own. You don't need a huge implementation effort. People already know the value of social media. Watch it grow into something amazing! I am a fan of your website and would love to help as an LMS expert if you had the biz need for that. Here is some website feedback it would be cool if we could set up an account on your site. Then we could comment on other reviews and have our information already in the system.

Pros: An impressive (at least when i used it) social network that helped connect the various different international location offices - from a fun as well as collaborative work perspective

Cons: not a direct fault of yammer, but its a closed platform - meaning over time users got jaded or excited about the next best thing and so used it less. Also, it also does not encourage the spreading of ideas beyond the main users. It does/did not actively encourage wider networking within the different office locations, which is effectively whats social networking is all about.

Pros: Can be used to access to company's internal information, news, bulletin board. Quickly and easily share useful information, comment and discuss. When implemented and used correctly, it can replace unnecessary email chains and few other systems.

Cons: It has value when used properly. It can be a challenge to get all old-school users to use it instead of sending emails.

Pros: Yammer is a very cool concept. It basically creates an online social network for your business which can be used for everything from project management to helping employees connect over shared interests. In that sense it is very flexible, and it allows people to connect at work in a way that they are connecting in non-work life already (ie on social media). It's pretty easy to use, even without looking at any tutorials and if you're using other Microsoft products it fits in seamlessly.

Cons: No real cons if this is something you're interested in for your business. I think it would be used to greater advantage in a larger business. We're a small company, so it's not as challenging for all of us to keep track of each other and collaborate. In that sense, a product like Yammer might not be as useful for a small company.

Its features are almost same that we can find in other social networking applications. It is a splendid way for having communication with people in industries very easily.

Cons: I would like to say there is really just one con. When I use this application it creates some problem while uploading and downloading but it happens very rarely. Most of the time it works perfect and let us collaborate in a fantastic way.

If you don't need a highly customizable app that can be easily integrated with a wide variety of non-Microsoft apps, and if you already have an O365 subscription, Yammer will likely meet your needs.

Cons: Other than integration with Office 365, the app doesn't stand out from any other team communications tools that are out there. It's not as easy to integrate with non-Microsoft platforms as others are.

Pros: Yammer has provided a relatively intuitive platform for my institution. While it can't necessarily do everything i need from a project management standpoint, it provides a helpful communication tool for collaboration, which is a constant need in my environment. The free account provides an array of features that i've been quite happy with, and the ability to move myself and others off of email for regular communications has probably been the greatest benefit.

Cons: Yammer is relatively good at communication and is easy to use, but i'm not sure it is effective enough in this realm to encourage all employees to move away from email-first communications. Other platforms seem to be a bit better at this, and it may be another example of Microsoft's choice to go with breadth rather than depth.

Pros: First, compared to similar products that cost money, Looking at you Cisco, you can't beat free. The collaborative tools are nice, and it works great as either a replacement for, or enhancement of SharePoint. You can create collaboration groups, make instant company wide announcements, surveys, or simply ping someone while they are on a call if you need an answer quickly. I FAR prefer the enterprise resources to Microsoft's other product, Skype.

Cons: Nothing. Its easy, sign on, and I've yet to find any end user that had trouble navigating it. Its simple, intuitive, and free!

You can also create groups and sub-groups to make things easier to navigate.

Cons: With so many groups that you can follow, it can get very segmented very quickly, and it's possible that you can miss information. You can set up notifications however which helps. Visually it could benefit from some updates as well.

Pros: In my limited experience with Yammer, I have found it to be very intuitive, and compelling for colleagues to utilize for ongoing, relatively informal professional conversations.

Cons: Yammer sees a bit limited regarding what it can offer, but that is not necessarily bad. Here, it seems to have had an initial level of interest that has since faded a bit.

Comments: In summary, I would say it has potential, but lacks a niche.

Pros: It has all the features you'd expect from a social media platform; yet, because it's specific to your organization, you don't have the drawbacks of using public social media platforms, such as Facebook and Instagram.

Cons: In spite of the fact that I've used this software at two 20,000+ employee organizations, I've yet to see it put to much practical use. It seems to be most advertised for collaboration, but collaboration still seems to happen much more naturally in person or via email. It just isn't as in your face as an email or a conversation; so, it's difficult to motivate folks to use it as much as they use more entertainment-related social media apps.

Pros: Very good tool for internal use of social networks of a company, works quite well. You can interact with your colleagues, create groups, publish news, even make surveys.

Cons: So far has met expectations, Excellent way to connect to a closed group

Yammer works fine-if you can get everyone to buy in and use it.

Pros: Yammer is a communications instant messaging software-much like Facebook's Messenger, Google Chat, or any number of others. It works within the Office suite-which is fine-if you are collaborating with a group of people on a project and need to communicate with them quickly. It does the job quite well and it keeps the 'conversation threads' private and linked to your work. This is a good thing. You are not going to be distracted by games, adware, or cute kitten/puppy videos (we hope). It stays right there-working right along with you.

Cons: Problem with Yammer is-getting people to get on it and USE it. That is a major hassle. If they have been using Messenger, GChat, or something else, getting them to use Yammer will be akin to having root canals sans anaesthesia. Not a good experience. It can be done, but why would you?

Pros: Fairly easy to use. Love the iPad, iPhone and browser access. Love the profiles that each group member can set up - makes it easy to find information on group members when you need it. Like that you can tag and favorite.

Cons: The proprietary algorithm for sorting the feed is extremely annoying. I want to be able to have options to sort how I choose. There is a lack of consistency across devices.

Overall: Easy to connect with university cohort members.

Pros: Our employer decided to use Yammer as a platform to network and share updates and news across sites globally. It is easy to create and join certain groups and ability to have an internal network. At first launch, people were more proactive in sharing news. I had uploaded pictures from a charity event once and it created a nice conversation to be share how other people are active in their own communities. It is very simple to use and connected to our internal networks.

Cons: I haven't had an issue and I think simplicity is best especially for maybe the less tech savvy users.

Cons: Not as versatile as Facebook.

Overall: We just recently switched to using Yammer. I like that it is a great way to stay in touch yet remain on a secure network. Within our organization we are able to communicate within the larger group or with smaller groups. Notifications let me know when important messages are available. Drop down menus make it easy to use. File sharing is easy and allows collaboration among colleagues. Nice feature for social networking.

Pros: As a user of yammer as part of the O365 suite on a large corporate network, I find it can be useful for some level of random communications (discussing industry relevant events) and getting to know the existence of people across an international organisation.

Cons: It's not rich enough to do any real work there, you can share the odd document and it has a notes function for linking document. It's difficult to add real content. It would be much more useful if Skype for business could connect directly to it can people could chat in a group instead of separately.

Pros: - It was fairly easy to join our company's network, and it integrates with our existing Office/Outlook subscriptions and accounts. That's about all I can say positive about the platform.

Cons: - It honestly feels like Microsoft has completely abandoned Yammer in favour of Teams, and they're doing so to compete with collaboration platforms like Monday, Facebook @ Work, etc. Unfortunately it's not a realm that they've figured out with Yammer, maybe they'll have better luck with Teams.

Great way to communicate with colleagues, but very basic design.

Pros: Instead of using email, yammer is very convenient to get in front of someone quickly. Just like a chat application, or social media platform, it can be fun and very easy to use.

Cons: I feel like this software has been done before. It's not very imaginative in what it brings to the table.

Overall: quick and easy way to interface with colleagues.

Pros: Easy to use and learn, nice user interface. Easy to communicate with coworkers and team members and collaborate. This was part of office 365 subscription.

Cons: Nothing specific, generally like the product. This is useful for collaboration, not so much as a project management tool.

Recommendations to other buyers: It's a business social network with some light management tools. You still probably need other project management tools, depending n how you run the project (Agile, Waterfall etc)
