Pros: This program will let you schedule and organize your people for things like vacations or messaging them, between other functionalities. It's good for companies where you have big number of people. Having control over this data and by this ease, will surely make your life less stressing.

Cons: You have to teach your people to actually use this program, otherwise, it would just be a pain for them.

Overall: Great tool for organizing people vacations and schedules.

A solid tool for seeing who's out of the office or if direct reports are booking time off.

Pros: It's a pretty simple tool that gives me the ability to track and be notified if my direct reports need to take time off work, but also it communicates when team members are sick and out of the office.

Cons: There's a lot of options/settings so it can take some time to get used to the tool. I also had a little challenging time trying to export my BambooHR calendar to Google Calendar.

Pros: This is probably one of my favorite HR systems that I have ever used. I have been in every industry from food service to public school teaching, and trying to find copies of forms and documents that you have filled out is always such a hassle! I am really pleased that this system is SO easy to navigate, and that it works on both my phone and computer. Also, I love how it helps my company reduce our carbon footprint by helping us to use less paper.

Cons: There are very few things that I dislike about BambooHR. In fact, I don't think I could think of one

Overall: I am able to quickly reference all HR related documents, see announcements from our business' owners and managers, as well as easily seeing available paid and unpaid time balances.

Pros: BambooHR clearly shows employees hours, salary, basic information, and benefits. It allows you to easily track changes to employees and to approve requests for your direct reports. It also has an app so you can access the service from your phone when out of the office.

Cons: Our version of BambooHR doesn't have a timesheet or employee time tracker. This would be a helpful addition to have all in one place to view.

Pros: I love the overall look and functionality. The reporting in Bamboo is great as well as being able to send very easy to navigate offer letters to candidates. The org chart feature is very nice, as well.

Cons: I wish there was a lot more we could do to customize employee profiles. We are left having to create certain fields and it gets quite messy this way. I also wish it could integrate with more softwares. We were promised a lot of features during the process of signing up and are still very upset none of the ones we wanted are there.

Pros: Very simple to use from a user's perspective. Simple to request time off and manage that process, and I loved the notifications of when I was paid.

Cons: As a user I had no part in this, but as our organization scaled to over 100 people we moved away from Bamboo HR. Im not sure specifically why Bamboo HR wasn't the right fit past that head count, but from the users perspective I loved the platform.

Overall: Simple to request time off and I liked the notifications when I was paid.

Pros: I liked the preboarding feature a lot - makes it very easy to onboard new employees even before they started, it's fully automated so all you have to do is just mark a person as hired and set up a workflow once and the rest is taken care of. nice feature of having people answer questions about themselves as it helps the team to learn more about their future colleagues.
the performance module is very simple but in the same time gives enough information and insight. it's based on deloittes approach to redesign performance reviews. I liked the reporting on the performance too, as it shows in one glance who's engaged and high performer vs those who has some issues which HR or a manager should take care of. The goal setting/tracking feature is also nice and simple, allows managers to comment on the progress which encourages frequent feedback and giving kudos.

Cons: Bamboo's support team is in the US and also as they grew bigger, they switched to ticket system vs just messaging them which made the process of gettig support slower. it's understandable but for us as a customer it was quite visible. also the customisation is not so easy and many requests were turned down as it wasn't on their roadmap.

Pros: Simple to use. Uses Google SSO. Make tracking compensation, benefits, personal information and vacation time very easy. Alert emails are helpful for tracking who has requested time off and when vacations are coming up.

Cons: We needed to do a workaround to track lieu days and it's not super intuitive. Otherwise, not mcuh. It's really great.

Overall: Track employees information, compensation, benefits, and vacation in one spot.

Pros: It's the most clean looking, easy to use HR tool that I've ever used or seen. I was able to go into my bank account information and select the exact amount of money that I wanted put into my savings account, which was the best thing ever. It also was so simple to request time off, made all of the stressful things so easy.

Cons: That I'm no longer using it. My company switched about 5 months ago to ADP and it's a nightmare. I went from loving it my HR platform to request time off and make changes to my paychecks to savings accounts, to absolutely dreading it.

I used the employee directory occasionally and the "Who's Out" calendar. All work well.

Cons: I don't have many complaints. My company did move away from this because it couldn't quite handle all our pay requirements, so that might be something to investigate.

Comments: Generally very happy with this software, however I would not recommend it for larger companies.

Pros: Very easy to use with an excellent and attractive interface. Time off handling is the best I've seen; easy to submit and approve requests, clear display of remaining time off and even a built-in time off calculator. The calendar eliminates the need to send out mass emails prior to taking time off, as anyone can see who is off and who will be off in the coming days/weeks. HR-required documentation can all be stored in this one central location, and assessments, training, org charts and many other features are incorporated right into the platform. The app makes it easy to use on-the-go, which is great for sick days.

Cons: Training features are limited, as managers are still required to sign off on an employee's training. Org chart functionality is very basic, so it falls short for companies who have a more complex structure.

Then wait for their response. Then when they have not understood your situation you must send another email and wait for their response. This involves a lot of waiting to try to resolve issues.

Comments: We have already recommended this to several of our small business clients who also need HR help. This is a great way to keep all your personnel data in one location, set up and track processes and the HR front, and keep all your data in the cloud (ditch the hard files). We've been very pleased.

Pros: Everything in one system: we can post job descriptions, interact with applicants, offer and accept, do on-boarding, off-boarding, performance reviews, and several other things. We were driving to find something after our payroll vendor had promised us a solution they didn't deliver.

Cons: We wish this integrated with our payroll system. We have found that there are several they integrate with--just not one we use.

Pros: Everything is placed out pretty neat and nice without much of cluster to search for a simple item. Good to be able to see who is on the vacation and not.

Cons: when we are viewing our user page and go into the salary tab, the salary item shows up without being hidden. It could be nice if there is button next to it called 'Reveal' for the amount to show up, so that we don't have to be too cautions about navigating the pages while someone is standing behind us and watching.

Overall: Managing people in the office, their holidays, allowances as per the set guidelines. Giving access all the employees about who is on vacation and who will be gone on vacation in the future so that they could plan accordingly.

Pros: For smaller companies that cannot afford full time in house HR, Bamboo is the perfect solution. They're fast, fair and efficient. What more can you ask for?

Cons: It can be a bit odd outsourcing HR for the lack of personal relationships, but it's something you learn to work with over time.

Comments: Customer service is so helpful and friendly, and there are rarely wait times over 2-3 minutes when calling them. The interface is very user friendly, and we get compliments on our new hire onboarding process through bamboo frequently.

Pros: The ability to create custom fields on employee profiles for us to track things outside of necessary HR-related information is huge! Also being able to pull custom reports on this data is key for us in presenting information to upper management. It has helped streamline communicating information because of how easily accessible the data is.

Cons: Very nit picky - but it isn't able to calculate fields in certain ways we need. However, we recognize we're wanting to do some more complex things. Customer support is always happy to take our suggestions, and we've seen improvements on things we're inquired about before.

We use this software for our HR benefits platform.

Pros: Easy to use. Comes with an app for phone. You can see when employees are off work and can track/see history of days off.

Cons: It would be great if there were a more in depth area for saving company docs. (other than HR docs.) I know that this function is not what this software was mainly built for though. Maybe also build in more tools for communication among staff?

Overall: Good record keeping of HR data. You can see and share employee info. easily too. App and software is very user friendly.

Pros: Before Bamboo HR our company was using 2-3 different pieces of software to accomplish everything that Bamboo does all by itself. It is easy to use, and I can't imagine anything that it is missing from an employee perspective.

Cons: Honestly, my only complaint is that it will not memorize my e-mail address. I have to enter it every time I log in.

Pros: Bamboo really strives to make their product easy to use. Their help section is filled with many different how to articles with picture and most often a video tutorial. I really like to 30/30 product updates they do, every 30 day they send out a video showing the new updates to the software for the last 30 days and what they are going to be working on for the next 30! This is constantly showing me all the different way to use Bamboo! They also will help create sections and tables so you can customize the program a lot. We also use it for performance management. We have heard that some people don't like that the limit the total number of questions in the review section we LOVE IT! We use the review period to "check in" with our employees and use the few basic questions to start a conversation about how happy they are with work and it has done amazing things for our company!

Cons: At the beginning it was a little difficult to get all of our custom tables set up and functioning the way we wanted but I think that was just some misunderstanding on my part, just not being a programmer! Bamboo has amazing customer service so they were happy to help make any changes we needed and made sure we were happy with everything at the end!

For the software being as amazing as it is and the fact that Bamboo is always improving I don't know if I would even necessarily call it a con but the price is a little high. For our needs the benefits Bamboo offer are defiantly worth the cost!

Overall: TIME!! I have so much more time!

Pros: Bamboo HR was able to help us streamline our review process. With such a small team, we knew that reviews were important but wasn't sure how to implement them. The idea of having the team member submit their feedback, and the management team do that in conjunction really helped the process. We were able to set goals and give feedback in an easy, simplified way. It really cut down on the stress associated with that process.

Cons: There were a few glitches while using this software. For example, once I wrote out everything in my review and submitted, but a glitch caused everything to be lost and I had to double up on the work. Small things like that can cast a big shadow and should be evaluated.

Cons: Fields are not customizable for country. Our company is in Canada and it's pretty annoying to have all US fields like zip code, SSN etc. Onboarding was also difficult, template received by onboarding specialist ended up being slightly wrong causing delays. I wish you could also review the info after it's added before saving or install an undo button.

Overall: Organized employee info, foolproof on/off boarding.

Comments: We have been very pleased. We would recommend it to others in a similar place of growth.

Pros: In terms of ease of use, ability to search employees, and keep all of our people information in one place, BambooHR has been an excellent investment. We are a growing firm of about 160 employees, and we needed a new system to keep track of our people data. We have been pleased and impressed with how easy BambooHR has been to use and rollout. Highly recommended.

Cons: We will eventually outgrow the ATS functionality, but for now, it gets the job done. I hope for more customization in future iterations, especially the ability to add custom fields without customer service action, but for now, it serves our needs.

Comments: I use this for the 7 companies that I help manage and it has been a lifesaver. We have employees all over the nation, so getting things signed can be tough, but with BambooHR, I just make a request in the system and it sends them an email. They can then log in and fill out the form and sign it and I have a digital copy that is easily accessible from anywhere.

Pros: Very robust system, featuring everything from employee file management to running payroll to performance evaluations. Easy to use for simple needs, but has many options to make the system tailored to your company. documents can be sent and sign through the system, so you never lose them.

Cons: It has so many features that it can get difficult to learn how they all work. Not a very bad con, but I couldn't come up with anything else.

Pros: Where do I even begin? All other HR systems out there should take note: BambooHR is how you do HR. My company was in need of software that dramatically cut down our paper usage, particularly for the onboarding process. The paperwork folder that I'd hand each new hire on their first day, was far too much and too overwhelming. With BambooHR, we are now able to have that onboarding process be completely electronic and have each new employee complete their new hire packet before their start date, at their leisure. That way, their first day (really, just about their entire first week) could be spent participating in valuable hands-on training sessions. No one wants to be bogged down with a massive folder of documents on their very first day at work, and the likelihood of employees retaining any of that information while a ton of other thoughts and nerves are flying through their heads on that first day, is VERY low. With BambooHR, new and veteran employees can revisit that information anytime they'd like.

The PTO feature is top-notch: employees can view a time-off calendar within the software and request off without having to physically check-in with HR or their direct reports, first. All that's needed from me or directs, is approval or denial of such requests.

Job benefits, bonuses, raises, and a whole slew of other job-related information can be tracked in BambooHR, making it the most comprehensive, easy-to-use HR software that my company has ever used.!

Cons: There are, in all honestly, absolutely no cons to this software. It'll fit into any company's budget, and I promise, your employees will enjoy it just as much as your HR team does.

Pros: - One of the things I like the most about this product is the fact that they have a mobile app. This is really useful when you want to quickly check who's off on a given date or if you need to request some time-off or sick leave yourself.
- if your company has a crewing system in place when it comes to holidays, you can check your future balance for a given date. This is really helpful if you need to plan some vacation.
- It also has a calendar view from where you can see exactly who has planned time off on a given date.
- As well as the future, you can also check your past history of requested time-off.

Cons: - Possibly, one of the things I'm missing is the possibility to check the company employee chart on the mobile version. I understand this might not have been implemented for a reason as viewing the diagram on a small screen could be deceiving for the end user.

Comments: 100% recommendation, I cant believe how I could have worked in HR all those years without BambooHR honestly:)

Pros: Will allow you to manage pretty much full employee life-cycle. Extremely customizable -data you store in the system, access rights to certain data, approval flows.. Very handy reporting tools. Employee self service portal and managers having access to their teams data. Very fast implementation time, you can build the system gradually and refine settings as you go. Big thanks go also to the customer support team and their guidance during the implementation phase!

Cons: The Training feature seems to have very limited functionality and not very useful for our organizaiton.

Cons: It's great for the end-user. It has everything I need to see, so there aren't really any negatives I can speak to.

Pros: Powerful HR software that can really be customized to my needs. Hiring tools, on-boarding, and off-boarding have been powerful tools for a small company looking to reduce liability without adding personnel. Customizable reports, integration with accounting, and notifications for the important things. Employee portal creates paperless enrollment in provided benefits as well as reports and access to important personal information.

Cons: It is a large financial commitment that may take some time to realize the benefits. Improvements to the mobile app would be nice as it lacks the many features that would benefit the employee.

Overall: HR tracking with on-boarding and off-boarding tools.

Pros: Easy to implement and very easy to manage. It is a very complete HR solution. It is an "every day software" , and has been accepted by all our team members.

Cons: There is no customer support in our native language (spanish), which complicates the communication between the support staff and us.

Overall: Personnel recruitment and HR management.

Pros: Great HR software package with some really nice innovative features including self-service for new hires to fill out first-day information prior to starting, etc. Love the support for multiple languages, great user interface layout, etc.

Cons: Great software product but pricey, which is a real shame. They need to figure out how to balance their value proposition to the market demand in terms of price.

Overall: Great overall HR software product with a lot of variety of value-add features and functionality.

It is a great tool to start with for a small organization.

Pros: The Job Opening feature makes it easier to manage recruitments. Looking forward to using the Performance Management feature.

Cons: Does not have a Time & Attendance feature. The Time-Off feature is limited to tracking balances in BambooHR but does not communicate with our payroll system so that manual work still exists.

Pros: Great on and off boarding setup. The ability to go completely paperless is a plus.
Unlimited report generator lets you create reports that you can actually use and not have to cycle through un-needed data.
Customer service is awesome! Call up with any question or concern and they will make sure you get taken care of right away.

Cons: The only drawback is the app from google play or itunes. We have our employees get the internet version and save it to their phones. The app needs updating so it looks similar to the desktop experience.

Pros: BambooHR has many unique features like it offers an employee self-Onboarding feature that allows new hires to complete HR Forms before even their start day and many such small but unique features

Cons: Though BambooHR is awesome and supports all needed features but it comes with a quite expensive price tag compared to other tools in the market ,if they work on something to reduce the prices it can surely help

Pros: Our company has recently adopted Bamboo HR. We were able to import all our old records into the new system seamlessly, and customized the settings to our liking. We easily integrated the software as part of our website and Social Media channels so that our candidates could better access and apply for our job openings. We no longer have to use spreadsheets for our recruitment or internal human resources!

Cons: We haven't had any issues so far. The product is working great, and hopefully, it will continue to work well for us.

Pros: Easy access to benefits, accruals, HR tasks, colleague and supervisor reviews, policies and events. Really opens up the workplace beyond what can be seen face-to-face or through limited emails. Brings the workplace together which is the best part of this software

Cons: Dont forget to log-out of your profile, or else others will have all of your company details. Make sure you logout so other person do not regain you niche information

Pros: That I can manage my team's vacation and time off easily as well as their goals and reviews. Also love the reminders about birthdays.

Cons: Some parts of interface is not completely intuitive. Although that might be partially because our company hasn't fully leveraged the tool.

We had some foreign employees in out companies but Bamboo HR helped with several Currencies.

Pros: It's nice to have a place that handles all your PTO, medical, benefits, schedules, job applicants and more. We even use it to manage things such as employee assets, company assets, and documents.

Cons: Adding custom features is not practical sometimes due to cost and or time constraints. If you are used to having a custom intranet tool that is fully customized, this may not replace it entirely. But, ask yourself first, do you really, REALLY need all of that? Probably not.

Pros: BambooHR gives a great overview of all of our employees and staff, giving us quick access to see who's out of office and where they're locaed.

Cons: The only issue has been more of how we've set up the software, making it difficult to see when exactly company holidays are (and any attached lists/documents).

Overall: BambooHR has given our company a fantastic method of tracking their time off and other management capabilities.

Pros: In general, I find Bamboo perfectly adequate for the needs of our business (under 100 employees). It is easy to navigate from both a user and an administrator perspective. If I need a new field the Support team will make this change quickly for me (and at no cost unlike other providers) and I can easily add new items to a drop-down list.

Some of the nice 'extra' features (which I had never seen in previous HR systems) include:
Tracker on the dashboard showing who is not in the office
Company celebrations (birthdays and anniversaries) on the dashboard
The ability to view what the system looks like per user

Cons: Although it's very easy to create new reports, customized reporting is limited in that I can only pull the data that exists in a field; I cannot put parameters on a field to only extract certain data. Also some of the modules out of the box are much more tailored to bigger companies and are not configurable (such as the Performance Management module).

Overall: Easy to navigate from a user and admin point of view. Alerts and notifications are very handy.

Great!

Pros: Bamboo is a great HR platform that allows employees to learn about new hires, get to know them, and see when people are going to be out of the office. They have to ask off through Bamboo so it is always more accurate than Outlook calendars. It shares when people's birthdays are so if you want to get them a special treat or a card, you can do that.

Cons: It could just be that my company doesn't have anything in the portal, but I would like to be able to access my employee handbook and cannot do so.
