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: We have Office365 at our company, next to Skype the other app that is extensively used is Yammer for collaboration.

We can switch this seamlessly across our Laptop & phone apps. Yammer is social network within the company. Everyone is member as soon as they join and we have different groups where we are free to join. But default, based on our department we are tagged to parent groups and we can view the updates and share our feedback just like Facebook.

We can create new groups based on the need and invite people or tag them to get their attention. The biggest advantage of this app is your voice is reached to thousands in minutes and you may get feedback from top skipping the hierarchies.

So easy to connect and easy to use and make an effective use for networking across the colleagues

Cons: User Interface is not rich and looks and feels needs improvement. Not sure but it hangs for me quite number of times. Also, little difficult to search for a post or feed. It becomes more confusing once more and more groups are created.

Overall: We have used this for solution seeking where we put our request or query and we get response with what people know about it or sometime we get perfect solution too.

Apart from work related, we also share the cool pics related to the happening or team events or festivals celebration.

Also, polls are conducted to seek the feedback from colleagues about new change in the company or changes that is needed.

Pros: Yammer does a really nice job of offering a social platform for workers to interact with other across the company. I work in a large organization and Yammer is a tool that I use to interact with my business cohort across the country. I have really enjoyed the opportunity to add individuals to your connections, find like-minded groups, and share documents for others to review. I have tried using Yammer for various uses and have largely found it beneficial for keeping up with co-workers in off-site locations.

Cons: I think Yammer can fall a little too far into the social category for a business. I have often felt like the platform veers too far into a social media tool rather than a business collaboration platform. The user experience feels very similar to Facebook and often is difficult to differentiate it from other social platforms. I have had other experiences with other business tools that seems to pull this off a bit better than Yammer. From my experience, other business professionals realize this and stay away.

Overall: I think my overall experience with Yammer is functional - yet, under-utilized. It provides and interesting social space within the hustle and bustle of a business world. I think some organizations can pull this integration off - but it is difficult. Yammer is built in a way that should increase collaboration and alleviate location based barriers for working teams. However, Yammer can fall into the potential pitfall of diving too far into a social trends over creating cross-functional teams. Therefore, in the end, I see a lot of promise in the tool - with quite of bit work left to go.

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: It is somewhat helpful in that you can get responses from people you don't interact with on a daily basis. Our company did a lip sync challenge and that worked well on Yammer with videos posted working seamlessly.

Cons: Finally, after more than a year of my company using Yammer, you can access it with one click. Up until this week, one had to enter their work email and password TWICE! and our email addresses are very long. One of the pages you had to enter the email on had a huge button for "sign up" Yammer and a link in the text to sign on. So most of us signed up over and over which led to getting numerous emails each time yammer sent one out. There are over 5,000 employees in my organization and they are using Yammer as the sole source of information to the employees. Most items are seen by less than 200 people, and this over a year after yammer was instituted! So I'm not sure if it is Yammer that is the problem or if the problem is more in how my company set it up.

Pros: 1. Works well with Microsoft sharepoint and in general Microsoft platforms (Office 365).

2. It has a great facility of creating groups and share contents like documents, images and videos.

3. We can get notification for feeds across company regarding promotions, appreciations and milestones across group or company.

4. Specially in terms of events its quite useful to collaborate, organize and gather people from different fields or demographics accross organization.

5. It is available for mobiles too, across various Os like Andriod and IOS

Cons: There nothing such issue, in terms of usability across organization i have observed the below points

1. Sometimes many notifications can be annoying

2. In case of large conversation we might get off topic or lose track of topic.

i wont consider this as a disadvantage of software to be honest, if we have proper workflow it will be very useful.

Overall: Overall I am quite satisfied with Yammer, I get upto date notifications on what is going on in the company and I can reach people in different timezones quite conviniently through mobile apps.

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: A very valid option to implement a fluid communication method and with which the internal community of the organization can feel familiar and connect in a great way with colleagues, among the most outstanding aspects is its structure and functioning of a social network capable of integrating to the community of colleagues quickly in a group to share information and exchange ideas, its appearance similar to other social networks allows to implement it easily and intuitively.

Cons: In general this is well developed but I must note that sometimes you feel the need to establish controls within the groups to maintain the formal aspect in the work area, the tools to customize the interface are limited.

Overall: An intuitive use is very positive, it generates a pleasant experience for the work environment, without a doubt it has facilitated me the aspect of communicating directly with the work teams.

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: I like that Yammer is set up almost like a social media platform. It allows you to easily communicate with various groups/ people across a company, with the ability to share files, collaborate on documents, spread ideas, etc. This is great for a company like mine, with over 80,000 employees worldwide, and allows you to join groups with other employees by region, business line, title, etc.

Cons: With the document sharing feature, it can be difficult to search for specific files. I think the organization of posts/ files is a little messy and it would be nice to be able to go to a specific "Shared Files" section to search for things, point blank. It can also be a little overwhelming searching feeds when you are in groups/ pages with large numbers of individuals.

Overall: This has been a great way to connect with fellow company members worldwide. I started using this as an intern in a group of all USA interns, and now am able to connect with other employees in my business line as a full-time employee. I think this is a great platform to connect company members are provide a platform for engagement across the firm.

Great virtual office. Our company uses Yammer and it is highly effective. I would recommend Yammer.

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: - The platform is simple and easy to use. Employees can start a conversation about any topic they feel like needs attention. Users have the ability to create public and private groups, share documents and videos with each other, and like other people's posts.

- Yammer can be considered a social networking platform meant to be used internally in an organization.

Cons: - I am using the software from last 5 years and do not have any concerns. The platform is reliable, easy to use, requires little to no training even for a beginner.

Overall: - If an organization wants its employees to share topics, interests, or areas of practice, then Yammer is a must!

Pros: My company used Yammer to help employees collaborate better. Our older employees didn't make much use of the system but the potential of Yammer is great for engaged employees. The social nature of the product matches up well with our millennial workforce. Its essentially a business version of Facebook. Making work groups to streamline communication and give shout outs is easy and fun.

Cons: If you workforce isn't active on social media or appreciate those means of communication it might be a tough sell to get them on this system. Either way, implementing Yammer will take a consistent effort in campaigning for its usefulness if your workplace isn't used to this type of system.

Yammer could also do better by allowing for more customization or branding by the employer to make it seem like an internal system.

I have no complaints about the software itself.

Overall: Yammer's value is felt the more its used by teams. If leadership doesn't consistently follow up to ensure employees are using it Yammer will be disappointing.

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.

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 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: 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: Yammer is an exceptionally helpful, organized way to connect with, well, everyone. I work for a large organization that uses it for both an internal staff network as well as a separate network for our members, who are spread across North America. It has revolutionized the way our members are able to connect with one another, allowing them to share ideas and best practices across distance in ways that were, frankly, almost impossible in the past.

Cons: I find Yammer particularly difficult to master, even as an Internet-savvy millennial who uses social platforms as my entire job. Yammer doesn't always feel intuitive, and it has plenty of particularities and quirks to uncover in order to best use it. Unless you're a frequent, on-all-the-time user, who has time for all that? I always feel like there's so much more to know about Yammer and so many better ways I could be using it - and yet, I still have no idea what they are.

I work with a virtual team and this really helps us post updates and documents on time, it's integration with other Microsoft office products is really good too.

Cons: Customization and personalization could be the way forward, the UI is good, but i would like to control which web part or theme should be applied to my page.

Pros: To be able to cluster a whole group of colleagues and allow the freedom of social highlighting is great but not unique to this tool

Cons: The waste of screen and low ability to customize the content and appearance means its an underused and ineffective means of comms for us. its no immersive or enjoyable in experience and doesn't play alongside the general suite of tools

Pros: It enhances communication via different channels throughout the organization. Any collaborative effort can be easily organised on yammer. The UI is really fabulous and I get all the latest feed in my inbox for any of the groups that I am associated to.

Cons: Though I really like the existing UI of this tool, I still feel that it can be improvised further. The content seems a little congested at the first glance. Other than this tiny concern, I feel that Yammer is great tool for internal communication in any firm.

Pros: We use Yammer as a part of our Office 365 subscription and it is a valuable social tool. Instead of emails, chat and other means it offers a centralized solution to enhance the social component of our company. Easy to use everyone who uses the internet knows how to work with Yammer.

Cons: The sorting of subjects and subfolders can get confusing

Comments: When we implemented Yammer I was able to communicate with individuals in my organization that I normally didn't interact with frequently. It is very user friendly and make communication and collaboration quick and easy.

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.

Great internal social tool for communicating informally with the business.

Pros: Simple to use and easy set up. Similar feel in ways to Facebook, but love the closed environment and informal nature so communication isn't so stuffy (corporatey).

Cons: Is rather basic and limited in some functionality. Because it is a stand alone site, it is one more tool to remember/check/waste time on. Can add value to communication within the org.

Very good tool and user friendly.

Pros: It looks a lot like Facebook, making it a fun tool to use. It was easy to use since we were familiarized with the platform.

Cons: When checking a private message and opening one of them, when you had to go back you had to scroll through all of the messages again, making it hard to quickly resume where you were going.

Overall: We keep track of the sales done on a daily basis.

Pros: Social private network for Business - sounds like a great idea. And it is, indeed! Having to work with a distributed team, its great to have a facebook-like hub, with a wide variety of features, where everyone stays connected and private (protected) at the same time. It is extremely easy to use, with a user-friendly UI.

Cons: It was a little painful at the very beginning, when we were trying to configure it right. Once we passed that phase - no more issues noticed.

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.

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: Group creation, centralized platform, layout of most popular posts. Yammer is engaging enough to keep all types of users' interested and engaged on the platform and does a perfect job of keeping things internal. No outside distractions other than what's happening in the company.

Cons: user profiles aren't able to be created to a large degree, a bit limited on the info it can contain. It is a bit expensive to hold the company license I've been told.

Cons: I wish there were less updates and notifications. They come all day long. Other than that it's a good tool for collaboration.

Overall: Great tool for company wide social gathering.

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: After deploying Yammer in our company, users from all branches can build communities, work groups, and share , documents ,topics in common, files, best practices, etc. The options to store and share digital information is the feature that our users appreciate the most.

It has become a great tool for productivity and collaboration in a very fun way.

Cons: We had some issues with Graphical content not being showed properly on the Social Feed. But we got it solved with Microsoft Support assistance.

Overall: ItΒ΄s been great. It manages to bring a fun and effective collaboration workflow to our company.

Pros: Communication is far superior using Yammer over distributed email methods. Platform allows a Facebook like experience where co-workers can collaborate quickly with text, GIF's, file uploads, etc.

Cons: When you upload files to your page(group), Yammer doesn't offer a means of organizing those file with any structure. It's simply a long list of files that have been updated over time from the group.

Overall: Increased effectiveness of digital communications.
