Pros: - It's easy to use week-to-week and serves are our "meeting space"

- The use of "repeatable questions" has allowed my team to evolve from conventional performance management solutions to an ongoing discussion of each associates performance

- The visuals in the Dashboards allow me to display to the rest of the organization how my team is trending and continues to get the chatter going with other teams who don't (yet) use 15Five

- The OKR feature allows us to coach our team on ensuring that they are trending well towards both their professional and personal goals

Cons: - I still struggle with the Question Queue, but have developed my own work-around to deal with that

- I wish that associates were not allowed to see other responses before submitting their own each week. There are some on my team that seem to look at other responses before submitting their own

- Associates should not be able to submit their responses before a pre-set date. My team is supposed to submit on Monday mornings. We are trying to drive a culture of reflection on Monday's before starting the week, but often they submit early (like on the weekend) - which has caused issues of them submitting before new questions rolled in.

Overall: I signed my team up for 15Five some time ago, hoping that this software would somehow tell me the questions I needed to ask to help them grow. When we first started our journey, the suggested questions quickly ran out, though! This was actually a great thing, as I could see the potential value, but now I needed to develop my own questions. This has been a MASSIVE recognition - software can't tell me what to ask my team, but it sure can help me create a culture with my own questions! We use 15Five to manage a nationally-disbursed Field Team of 27 associates, and routinely have extremely high satisfaction within the team. Just last week, I sent out a survey to the team to rate their managers on 8 key indicators (including 15Five interactions) - the result was a 97% favorable rating across all 8 KPIs. There's a lot that goes into that high rating, but 15Five is the glue that holds us together!

Recommendations to other buyers: My biggest piece of advice is simple - realize that this is a GREAT tool to help you manage performance, but how well it works is down to how focused you are as a manager at growing your team. 15Five is not a magic elixir that will solve your team's woes. I estimate that I spend about 20-25% of my week actively engaged in 15Five, from conceiving new questions based on responses I see to actively responding to the team's answers. Using 15Five to modify your team culture is an intentional activity that is well worth the time - but you have to be willing to spend the time to do it!

Pros: I'm in the 30th year of my working life and career and have been fortunate to have seen a lot tools that center around the human resources arena. There are a lot of good ones out there and I've used many of them with success. But there is something different about 15Five. This tool gives you the right-size touch points to measure your team's temperature all along the way. Too many companies rely on annual reviews, or semi-annual if they are proactive to gauge their employee's mindset and solicit feedback. Two days out of the year doesn't come close to providing meaningful data. 15Five offers up a non-threatening way to check-in with your team and make sure everyone is in the game. There have been times where the 1-5 scale for "how did the week go" produced a "3" response. It presented the opportunity to ask the right questions and correct any challenges within a 5-day timeframe instead of the traditional 6-month interval. In some instances, the lower rating was based on factors outside of work which is helpful to know as well because home and work life always comingle despite our best efforts to separate the two. All-in-all... an extremely valuable tool.

Cons: Perhaps a few more analytics for managers to check into but nothing that takes away from the overall value of the tool.

Overall: I've worked for companies that had millions of dollars in revenue and companies that boasted many billions in revenue and both size orgs and every others that fall somewhere in between could find value in implementing this tool. The key is to use it consistently and be willing to objectively accept, analyze and use the data that is returned.

Pros: Super easy to use - no 'training' necessary (even though it is available). Get's the team to think every week about what's important, how they can be intentional with their time, what they want to achieve and how to bring ideas to the table. The performance management software takes conversations to where they should be - improving the working life of employees. It's development focussed and doesn't take long to do. The new homepage allows each team member to use the product daily to stay on top of what's important. We use the rating out of 5 each week as a key company metric to get a sense of how our team are feeling about work.

Cons: We recently engaged a points based recognition program which I fear will replace the high5's. I'm wondering if this could be integrated somehow as the high5's were a real motivator for the team. From what I can tell, there is no analysis tool at the end of a review period to analyse the 'manager only' data so see what ratings were provided across the board. It would be great to use a talent rating in the system too which showed where our high performers were.

Overall: We monitor and manage our whole team using the software. Major objectives to weekly check in. It is our #1 people tool.

Pros: Everything. It has improved our open door policy by giving us another outlet for effective feedback. Also, the 15Five team is always looking towards improvements; inspiring to see that.

Cons: It took longer for me to learn how to use it effectively. That was my own personal struggle. When presented with this service, I just wanted to hurry up, fill it out and get through it. I now know how to manage my time, fill it out a little bit here and there so I am not rushing to finish it at the end of the week. Maybe a stronger emphasis on filling it out little by little thru the week so the client isn't doing what I was doing at first and rushing to finish it with out providing efficient responses to the questions.

Overall: One of my first questions in my 15Five, which I still see on occasion is a three part question. What are you proud of this week? What are you stressed about? What can we do to relieve these stresses? I always have something I'm proud of. For me, the challenges come from what am I stressed about. I introduced my newest management to a typical day for me, and she felt there were many times I should be stressed. She helped me to find those portions of my day, and take on some of the extra responsibilities so I was working at the same level of efficiency throughout the whole day. To be specific, she took on some of my start of shift responsibilities, as I am limited to how long I have to prepare. Also, she took on some of my preparation for on boarding the new hires I receive. And lastly, she rescheduled some of my pickups that were always coming at the same time at my end of shift when I was trying to multi task and finish our data input. I was working through all these challenges and not even realizing that I didn't have to until I had 15Five to effectively communicate where I could use an extra hand.

Recommendations to other buyers: Fill it out little by little thru out the work week. Filling it out at the end of the work week means you may be rushing, and excluding beneficial information in your responses.

Pros: I have been using 15Five for years, with multiple companies. Then when I met the CEO and crew at an event and spoke with one of the product leaders for their future performance review feature they wanted to roll out, it seems they ended up using EVERYTHING I described to them in detail of how I thought the NEW version of performance reviews should be like when they launched "Your Best Self"! (Very flattered and stoked) We've already trained the team and coined it as Jelli's YBS. I was using BambooHR's perf review and switched immediately. Also their High Fives have a great tracking source I find very valuable.

Cons: CS is always a tricky subject. Even though they have a great chat feature, the person I was speaking to was helpful and listen to the challenge with my BambooHR and 15Five integration, I believe she resolved the issue, but I never heard a follow up or closing ticket confirmation

Comments: I absoluately love the concept of 15five. In my head it sounds great - you update your manager, takes 15 minutes of your time, your manager can comment and you can always be synced! It definitely provides another channel of communication with your manager which is very useful. My manager and I would use it guide our 1:1 meetings by creating a list of topics we want to discuss which was good.

I think the interface and user experience is great for the tool!

The problem i found with 15five were the following:

- It usually took way more than 15 minutes for me to complete my review! The questions we set up were open ended so in order to add detail and value to it I really had to take time to think about what i wanted to write and say.

-the questions are repetitive. Which they do offer you to change your questions - but it seems like a lot of work to do on a weekly basis.

-questions should be rotated

-Questions should be more quantitative for example rate 1-10 how are you are feeling etc...

- I don't know how much value our managers actually got out of 15five. It worked for some teams/groups and it didn't for others.

Their customer service is excellent and we even met with their team 1-2 times a year to discuss how we can make our usage better. Overall it was a good tool that we used, but I think overtime we just grew out of it.

Shivani! Wow so grateful for the review. Thanks for your candid feedback.

I totally hear where you are coming from on the "time suck". We've come have some new features to help address these issues:

-First let's look at deactivating repetitive questions. That will cut down on the time it takes to fill out your 15Five. Click the little pencil icon next to the duplicate question and click "deactivate". A simple change that will go a long way for everyone!
-We have a Question Queue that will help you save time managing questions. It's an auto rotation of questions so they are kept fresh from week to week without the manual labor.
-We have metrics for quantitative questions! Results are pulled into dashboards so you can get a quick glance on any topic you want to measure.

I'll reach out separately to be sure I've taken care of all your concerns. Hope this is helpful! Thank you again for the review!

Pros: I like that 15Five is focused on frequent, easy, meaningful check ins between manager and team members rather than annual performance reviews. The weekly check ins on near term work develop a rhythm of weekly talking about what is going on now, the work's relation to the larger goals and initiatives and it provides opportunity to spin off thornier topics into one on one conversations. The weekly questions provide opportunity to go into topics of career development, culture, and other future focused areas. The High Fives are a great way to bring in peer to peer recognition. Everyone loves getting a High Five!

Cons: I would like to be able to have more freedom in creating reports. The reporting that is currently available is helpful but I sometimes have needs to create more custom reports than are currently possible. Also, I would like to be able to have control over which High Fives show on the public feed (sometimes High Fives mention sensitive employee situations that you wouldn't want to include on the public feed).

Overall: It is the most meaningful performance management software I have ever used. It promotes weekly thought about "the next action" you need to take on your projects, it ensures that manager and team member are connecting regularly, it is easy to use and doesn't require an overwhelming amount of work to complete or review a report, and it naturally fits into other management best practices (e.g. one on one meetings, coaching, feedback, etc.).

Pros: The structure of 15Five allows the leader flexibility in how they would like their team to utilize the app. The leader can be very deliberate and direct the participants or can establish a framework and allow the team members to participate at their own level. The weekly questions are a great tool for getting a pulse on what is happening in a local team or with an individual, but it takes some coaching for some people to get comfortable with the questioning approach.

My team has been challenged to embrace the tool as a social platform as this was not a natural behavior in our organization. It has taken some time, but many members of the team now provide High5's and other acknowledgement to team members that in the past would have gone unnoticed.

Cons: I am not a big fan of the "out of the box" dashboards and flash reports. They provide usage data versus business impacting data. It requires a commitment from the leader or administrator to get the information that they need to run their business from the standard reporting. More templates would be helpful especially after your team has been using the product so there is worthwhile information that can be mined from the application.

Overall: Helps me keep in touch with remote team members. Provides a snapshot of the various activities that the team is participating. Provides a direct feedback loop between leaders and their team members.

Pros: 15five is simple and easy to manage. Through time it has helped me realize how a treat my goals, and no surprise turns out I plan a lot and achieve little due to the fact that I get distracted with other goals along the way and forget the base ones. 15five allows me to see that by the end of each week, so now I plan less but stick to the goals that matter.

I love the "High Fives" as I can congratulate team mates that helped me along the week. I also get high fives and get a sense to whom and what department my work is having the best impact, and which are not.

Cons: It does not have a statistical feature for the goals, so I use spread sheets to calculate goals that require a percentage. ANd most goals do if I want to have a sense of how much I have covered (20%, 33,54% etc.). So it still requires external tools to complete a report. A percentage calculator would be an easy thing to implement.

I just found out that there is a vacation feature. But it was really buried in the configuration pannel, I would expect to see it on a more relevant section, like the main navigation top bar.

OKR training for customers. I have seen a couple of blog posts, but not a training section that resembles more a mini course. Success stories using OKR's from customers would be awesome as well.

Overall: I love it. I am still in the works of getting the most out of it, would love it even more if it had a percentage calculator for the objectives. That would save me some time. A training section would be very beneficial for people that have not OKR's before. It would save many headackes.

Pros: There are several things I love about this software. The ability to check my co-workers 15/5's and see what types of tasks/goals they're working on weekly is useful in our remote team because it provides me with a reference which allows me to consider where I am in comparison to the rest of the team, and how I might shift my focus if need be.

The High Five tool is also fantastic because it allows us to show our appreciation for the little things we do for one another, as a remote team we aren't always sure if the things we do actually make much of a difference and this allows us to give "kudos" to things which otherwise might go unrecognized.

Cons: One of the little issues I've had with this software is that it is difficult (Impossible?) to delete a task.

A quick example of this: If I write "Arrange a meeting with ___" and later that day I realize this is not the person I should be meeting with, it is difficult to remove the task, and though I can mark it as complete, it still makes the task list look cluttered and looking back on 15/5, may cause confusion.

Overall: 15/5 is a fantastic tool for remote teams

Pros: 15Five has allowed me to be proactive in manging my team through our weekly 1:1's - getting a clear understanding of my employees' needs as well as their focus from week to week. Having the ability to ask strategic questions - and continually updating and revising them - allows me to get a review of my employees true reflection and state of mind. This has been valuable in so many ways - from how I interact with the employee; how they continue to progress on tasks; and where they're focus is on overall objectives. Being able to publically and privately provide kudos and immediate feedback - which help in the review process - ensures there is never a surprise to either myself or the employee.

Cons: Allowing collaboration (multiple owners) of an overall objective. You can have a parent objective, and multiple team members assigned to support the objective, but at time required to have duplicate child tasks - rather than having the ability to focus as a group. I appreciate the individual aspects, but being able to work as a group is equally important.

Pros: This is a great software that allows you to check in with your teammates on a regular basis. The ease of use for this project is perfect, and it is clear, clean, and easy to navigate. I love that the supervisor creates whatever questions they think are applicable for this time period, and then all team members are able to answer the same questions. This gives an overall sense of the culture, the feel of the company as a whole. It helps identify gaps, places where a team member may be stuck, but also where your team is excelling. We use the goals feature every month that we send this out, and it truly helps us organize, prioritize, and stay on track. I would highly recommend this software to any and every company out there.

Cons: I really don't have anything that I haven't liked so far. This is a great software that allows you to check in with your team mates on a regular basis.

Overall: I am not a supervisor in my organization, but I do fill out a 15Five survey every month. My supervisor creates a list of questions that allow us to discuss every aspect of my job, from how I am feeling about the culture and relationships with my coworkers, to where I feel I am stuck and need some guidance, and it asks about goals for the next month. My supervisor can easily comment back on my answers, and it allows us to touch base quickly if we are not able to meet in person. But, if there is an area that we need to discuss, we can prioritize that and schedule a meeting to discuss it. I love that we can give high fives to others, and we can help encourage people regularly.

Pros: I love the actionable items to track 1:1's so that my team and I reference the same listing and that it carries forward to the next meeting. I don't have to keep track of a spreadsheet or paper with notes. It is all there for me.

Cons: The OKR's can be clunky when wanting to see all the different inputs into a departmental or company goal. It would be helpful to see the direct links in a better way that is more easily digested.

Overall: Organizational tool to keep my team moving towards their goals and ensuring we are offering a culture that matches our values.

Hi,

Thanks so much for the review. Really glad you are benefiting from the new 1:1 agendas!

One a separate note, I'm sorry you are having a bad experience with OKRs. I wonder if you are referencing our old OKR feature that was always in beta and never fully developed (it is indeed clunky).

In its place, we created a new fully-fledged Objectives feature. I'd be happy to share more if you'd like to send me an email. I want you to have a great experience with every aspect of our software so please do reach out. Even if it is the new Objectives feature you are referencing we'd love to hear how we can improve.

Thanks again for the review. Have a great day!

Pros: - Easy interface

- Great customer service

- Enforces accountability

- Creates a space for communication and continued company culture

- It's quick

Cons: I'd like to see analytics and suggestions from it. More company surveys and numbers offered--quizzes or other interactive components that would allow our team to have deeper insight into our employees challenges, happiness or frustrations.

Overall: Our team uses 15Five to communicate ideas, wins, and identify issues. Especially as our offices expand and our team grows, it's been wonderful to have a tool that holds accountable and provides some continuity across the board. We've also been using it as reinforcement for training so that our new members can reiterate important information. Our account and sales teams are able to share big wins and improvements and our team supports have tools to gain insight they might otherwise miss. Our company participates in profit sharing and the "High 5" feature allows me to see who I've consistently been praising and for what reason--allowing me a more educated recommendation.

Recommendations to other buyers: Be strategic in your questions! Use this as a means to create another layer of introspection and self-reflection or reflection on work and tasks. Have your team leaders use it as a means of transparent communication and continue conversations outside 15Five.

Pros: I love that you can create goals for the next week AND add to your list of accomplishments other tasks that you got done during the week... and that there's room for comments to give updates on longer projects.

I also like the high fives -- it's a great way to keep the office positive and affirm people for the little things they do each week to make things go well.

Cons: I don't know if I need to know that I'm on time 57% of the weeks that I submit. I think it's good to hold users accountable for submitting and keeping track of streaks is nice for those who like "perfect attendance" type awards, but for those weeks when you're already underwater and barely getting your 15Five in by Monday... two days late, it doesn't feel good to have the software tell you afterwards, "Oh, and by the way, you're late a lot..."

Overall: In our office, 15Five has been a great tool for communication and accountability for both weekly and ongoing projects. It has helped me and my supervisor keep track of my progress, it has helped me re-prioritize my daily goals as needed, and it has helped us as a community encourage one another in the little "wins" we have each week. I love how much positivity it generates in our office community.

It's great....but!

Pros: I seriously love 15Five from an organizational perspective. It makes a lot of sense for a business owner or manager to implement 15Five into their workplace. It gets your employee to have open and honest conversations all while not having to move from their desk.... but keep reading below.

Cons: While it's great from an idea perspective, in reality, it doesn't always work as planned. You will see that your employees still hold out on providing the whole truth. And frankly, can you blame them? It's hard to have a fully open conversation with your manager, and this software tries to make that happen.

From a managers perspective, it's best to implement this software with an in person conversation. While it's easy to just use it weekly online, it's best to have an employee fill out their 15Five and go through it together during an in-person meeting. Do whatever you can to get your employees to speak the whole truth - but keep in mind, it is insanely hard to get everything out.

Pros: The ability to alternate the questions from week to week, or create a rotating bank of questions, means you can not only touch base with your team weekly, but you can also measure progress on a monthly basis. This means you can see the day to day, as well as the big picture trends. I also like the "High Five" and tagging integrations which make 15Five feel less like reporting to a boss, and more like a social sharing experience.

Cons: Each submission can only have one reviewer. So if multiple managers need to access and comment on a 15Five, one has to be ranked above the other- it's hierarchal.

Pros: This software was introduced by the human resources department of my company, demonstrating excellent benefits that I will mention below:

- A more direct relationship between the workers and the heads of the company where I work.

-A permanent feedback system where different characteristics such as the morale of the work team are evaluated, expectations, successes and failures, making direct reports to the bosses in order to attack problems and strengthen solutions that strengthen the spirit and productivity of the employee.

-Information in real time of the different problems that are generated in my workplace. This ensures that supervisors and managers have a clearer job and managerial outlook.

Cons: This software came to strengthen the feedback between various levels of command of the company, has sensitized and brought to reality the problems of the company, creating an excellent working environment, therefore I have no claim whatsoever about this software

Overall: 15FIVE, is an excellent solution for any company that wants better levels of feedback with its employees. A good manager is one who cares about the welfare of their workers, the challenges, the projected goals and the performance and productivity, and this software is a very efficient alternative for these purposes

Pros: - Filling out the 15Five every week (for my boss) and reviewing direct reports keeps me in the loop without running the risk of micromanaging team members.

- Facilitates and documents 1:1s

- Captures growth opportunities / successes for future recall, documentation to make case for promotion

Cons: Objectives are a bit clunky, not as easily customized to fit the needs of our media (agency) team. Don't love how individual objectives latter up within the company overview dashboard and would love more advice for how to make goals more actionable/measurable.

Overall: Overall, 15Five has changed the game in managing 1:1's with direct reports and empowers team members to play a larger role in their relationship with me and other team members. It encourages both people in a 1:1 to play an active and intentional role. I also think it gives more power to the person hoping to grow their career while making it easier as a boss to set clear expectations for what it will take to do so.

Remarkable Communication!

Pros: I have been using 15 Five for several years now and my team loves it. They enjoy getting feedback and they really enjoy updating their otherwise clueless bosses on the great things they are accomplishing! : )

Cons: There is just so much power in the tool that we have not found the time to explore and implement everything yet. I would love a way to see what my employee is going to see before I finalize their report. That way I see the questions I created for them with the Suggestion Box, the company wide questions, etc. and know exactly what they will see as I am designing changes.

Pros: This software is excellent for small businesses looking to streamline and professionalize their HR approach. Prior to 15five, my company basically had no formal HR system, which I think is surprisingly common amongst small and medium sized companies. I like the report structure. I like the tracking over time. I like/use nearly all of the features.

Cons: There are a lot of features that are buried. It took me several months of use to find, then understand how to use objectives. The peer review process was also a little weird as it asked me to comment on my co-workers' career goals and trajectory - not information I had access to. I would like to see more structure around professional development for individuals. It seems like there's a lot of overlap/confusion around flagging for followup, adding items to a 1:1, following up, commenting. I wish it was all even just a little bit simpler.

Overall: 15five allowed our very small company to instantiate a formal HR process. It set the course for regular performance review cycles which in turn leave people feeling more motivated. In general, it's a morale booster - though it can get repetitive. I think a few tweaks to make features more robust and easy to use will go along way. I want to document my own personal growth and objectives - maybe totally privately - in an easier way.

Pros: "How are you feeling?" feature does a great job keeping track of the pulse on our culture and overall employee satisfaction as a company.

High Fives are a brilliant way to keep our team motivated! In fact, we use this feature to fuel who chooses lunch for us on Fridays!

Really love that I get to keep track of my objectives in the tool as well. Good way to keep me honest about my progress.

The weekly reminders and reports that are emailed are super helpful!

Cons: None at this moment. Keep doing what you're doing!

Overall: We love 15Five! We use our 15Five metrics to support many discussions around the org., good or bad. It's a practical way for us to see a glance of our culture, recognize our employees and also keep our projects moving.

An easy-to-use tool that makes it simple to do what every manager should be doing already.

Pros: Ease of use for the person filling out the report- it's simple and helpful for them, as well as the manager. That makes it quality content, and not just white noise or another thing to check off the list.

Cons: Sometimes challenging to rearrange questions for different groups/individuals. They have a system in place, but I don't personally believe it's the most user-friendly. It can be confusing and unintuitive at times.

Hi reviewer,

Thanks so much for the review. It's great to hear you find 15Five simple to use (one of our values!) and that it's helpful for managers and employees.

I'm sorry you are having issues with questions. Questions are a bit tricky and I admit it's not the most user friendly part of our app.

We always strive to improve. If you have suggestions or get stuck on anything please email our support team support@15five.com. We love customer feedback - good and bad.

Thanks again and have a great day!

Pros: I really like the High Fives feature than can be use to appreciate the work done by an employee. This is an incredibly useful feature that surely increases morale and boost productivity.

Another great feature i love and enjoy using is the 1-on-1 feature.

It's also very nice that the software is beautifully built and very easy for just about anyone to use.

Cons: I can't think of anything negative about this software. It has always worked well for me ever since I started using it.

Pros: The thing I love the most about 15Five is that I feel in the loop without micromanaging my staff. I can easily pull up their account and see what tasks they're working to accomplish that week, hold them accountable without being in their face, and praise their efforts, all in one place!

Cons: I do wish there were more automated question selections that populated.

Overall: My experience has been nothing but positive, as a small company we've used many softwares to manage our staff, projects, etc. and 15Five is one of the few that has stuck over time. We love that we can High Five people for big and small things. Our team is made up of many "word" loving members, and it's great to put that praise in writing each week in addition to the face to face "thank you's". Their team is also made up of some really incredible and professional people, there to help you along the way if you encounter any issues!

I recommend 15Five to other companies several times a month.

Pros: Out of all the OKR tools that I have used, 15five has the most features in theory. 15five has some really cool extra features that not all OKR tools have, like the 1-on1 meetings. The difficulty level for entering comments on your OKRs is "middle ground" when it comes to comparing to other OKR tools. What differentialtes this OKR tool from the rest and makes them stand out in a crowd is their 1-on1 meeting adgendas and chats. Weekly meetings and agendas can really get lost but with 15 five you'll never lose your notes and always have a constant flow of positive feedback by sending each other "high fives" for work well done.

Cons: Has the a lot of great features in THEORY, but they are not as easy to use as they could be. It is somewhat difficult to make and update comments to the OKRs themselves. It requires extra steps. These extra steps reduce the likelyhood of actualy going in and making comments and updating the OKRs regularly. It's also not quite as easy to enter objectives as other tools that I have used and reviewed.

Overall: Manage our OKRs and not look at them just once a quarter but actively engage with them between our meetings so that we could track against our progress and collaborate as a team to celebrate success as well as get projects the extra support that they need to get them back on track.

Pros: The company I work for just started using 15five about a week ago and I already feel like my individual voice has grown in value. My supervisor now has a record of my thoughts, goals, challenges, and aspirations on a weekly basis rather than taking notes from a 1-on-1 meeting.

While I do work with Trello for task management, 15five also provides easier at-a-glance information for both myself and supervisor to see and understand the work I do each week. Sometimes the work I do does not have immediate value or impact, but that does not make it valueless or impactless. Having it documented for my supervisor to see also helps me feel more relaxed about whether or not I am accomplishing "enough" each week.

Cons: One of the things I've noticed as I used it this week is that its more of a "pick up and use once for the week" type of software; at least on the side of the reviewee. The reviewer, I imagine, would spend more time reviewer their direct's reviews than the reviewee's spend time creating their reviews. This is not problematic per se, but it does decrease the products effective "stickiness." Said another way, I really would only spend about 10-15 minutes a week using the product to receive the highest benefit from it possible. Any time after that reaps zero extra benefit as all value has already been had. In some ways, this could be seen as a PRO as I imagine that managers would rather employees spend more time working than writing reviews.

I use this platform at least once a week and I must say it's a great way to keep people connected.

Pros: The ability for management to take a temperature check of how the team is doing and or feeling is really valuable. (I do not know what the cost of this software is however) It also helps people high five each other when ever they want to give their friends/co-workers a simple & quick compliment which is really good for building comradery.

Cons: I think that if it is a mandatory tool to use every day it can become more of a annoying tool rather than a helpful one. Once or twice a week will suffice.

Overall: Connection with people that you would typically not be able to communicate with being that there is no department cross over or something of this nature. A simple way to stay connected to your management as well, while also helping to survey the company constantly so management can find problems in training or managers that are making employees quit.

Pros: Easy to use

Simple on-boarding

Cons: Nothing much,

May be pricing would be a concern for some emerging economies like India

Other language support also can be a concern

Overall: Most of the prevailing performance appraisal methods are designed for the earlier way of working, non existing jobs, and most importantly not for the Millennials. So what else we can do? This is a question many forward looking companies must be asking and the answer is 15 Five.

When somebody is not performing, we need not wait for a quarter or a half year or a year to find that the employee is not performing and to arrive at a conclusion that he/she require improvement. Real time feedback is what we require to improve the performance of any employee. 15 Five is really helpful to solve this problem and recommend for any organisation with a will to keep their people happy, productive, stay relevant in their business.

Recommendations to other buyers: Stay simple, please do not add more features and make it complex Explore more ways to scale up and achieve hyper-growth Wishing you guys the very best !!!

It has an intuitive user interface and I am allowed to freely customize how I receive my notifications.

Cons: There were weeks where I successfully completed my tasks and had no complaints , yet I was unable to submit my form until I had to report an issue or complaint ,which was non-existent ; just to enable me submit the form.

I am also able to explain my concerns and possible improvements for the company. I feel like it's a platform that my voice can be heard and having every week to submit my thoughts is HUGE.

Cons: It would be cool if the questions varied a little bit. They can be pretty repetitive. Possible ideas: Ask questions relative to current events/happenings within Warby Parker.

Overall: Overall, 15Five has allowed me to voice my concerns/opinions/moments that I have succeeded/moments that need improvement/goals/as well as acknowledge other team members who have made my week better or truly impacted my time at Warby Parker.

Pros: It has also opened-up a great channel for our managers to learn and get insightful information from the needs and concerns of our collaborators.

We love its easiness to use and some slick features, like Hi fives, Objectives and Reviews!

It has become a tool for people to recognize each other's efforts and achievements in the day-to-day life.

We finish each one of our All-Hands going through every high five each member gave to their colleagues; it has made a great difference and now everyone is really looking forward to the Monday meetings, just to read and get their cheers!

Cons: In our specific case, we are based out of Mexico. A few of our employees don't speak English and therefore, it is more challenging for them to get the best out of the tool, especially the instructions they get from the system alerts, which are not editable.

One other thing we've struggled with is that the Hi Fives feed is not showing ALL the messages, and therefore, we sometimes don't have the complete information in our All-Hands to share.

Another thing that sucks is that me, as the Company Leader, cannot assign a reviewer for my reports. I'd love to get feedback from my partner, whose report's reviewer is me (I am her manager for this matter).

Although counterintuitive in the theory, I'd be great that it was possible to set her as my reviewer as well.

Overall: Communications and team integration!

Pros: I like the ease of use and the ways I am able to describe weekly goals, and struggles. I love that my team is synced with me so that they can see and understand what my team is doing (different than theirs), and I can see theirs. It gives me a simple platform to give myself weekly goals and strategies, and to acknowledge others for their work as well.

Cons: Simple also can be restrictive. As a user not a manager I do not get to much range of editing my week goals and objectives outside of the simple setup. It can get repetitive.

Overall: It is a good platform to plan out me week, acknowledge my colleagues, and to keep up with what others are doing. It builds a better team environment, and for those embracing the customer success model of business it is a MUST HAVE!

Pros: The "high five" functionality allows us to celebrate small and big wins in a timely manner. It also boosts our employees' morale and motivation. Imagine that you received weekly compliments from your coworkers and possibly even more? And those compliments went to your whole team... it's pretty fantastic.

Cons: I haven't found much that I don't like. Sometimes the program defaults to include my leader's full library of questions, but it's usually because she didn't pick questions that week and she just fixes it. Also, the rating of completion of reports on time is a little discouraging, but I'm a high performer and pretty much expect 100% out of myself. I don't even think others (besides my leader) can see that score.

Pros: We use 15Fives as part of our employee management tools as we consult on client sites away from office alot. Many times our resources are not physically with managers for updates and reviews. 15Fives provides a great way to communicate and stay of top of items and tasks. Objectives are also very useful to manage KPI and larger tasks for company and personal growth.

Pros: There are so many new things I learnt being at 15 Five.

Very good platform to think what happened whole week, which really makes me relax and motivates to do better for coming weeks.

Will get advise/solutions if I am facing any challenges.

When we mention problems and get solution for it, we can also help others when they faces same challenges.

By High Five, Learnt how to appreciate efforts as well as Achievements (may be small or big).

Thank you 15 Five.

Cons: To be honest, I didn't find any cons.

Keep up the good work!

Overall: 15Five is a very good platform to express our self with Team Leader/manager/VP.

We can think about how previous week went , what are the challenges faced, about Achievements (may be small or big). These thinks really makes us relax.

We can get good advises from the team, manager or VP, which really makes us motivated.

Its really very easy to communicate with our team members, managers, or VP.

The favorite part is High Five, I just loved it!..It really encourages to achieve more, as well it will recognizes our efforts.

The main advantage of High Five is we can stay connected with whole organization:-)

Pros: Mobile app is generally great. I have a few small tweaks I'd make, but overall it does what I need it to do well.

The 1:1 functionality is used throughout our company & I love that my reports can see the notes that I take in our meetings.

The high fives are great for lightweight feedback. An iOS widget would make it even easier.

The weekly reports are easy to use.

Cons: There honestly isn't much. I don't do any of the setup for surveys & admin of our account, so I can't speak to that. I'm only just now getting direct reports, and so far, it looks useful from that perspective.

Once in a while (that I can't specifically remember right now), the interactions are a bit awkward or not where I'm looking for them. But they're not so bad that I give up.

Overall: I'm a huge fan & have recommended it to many, many folks at other companies.

It is a quick and easy tool that helps me stay in touch with others in my company

Pros: I like that it really helps you think about what your week to week really does look like, what you've done, what you want to do, and what has been holding you back. This is great for months down the line when you want to look back at your past accomplishments.

It also really helps keep others in your company connected with what is going on when they might not be involved in your day to day. This way everyone can be better informed about decisions and allocation of time and energy.

Cons: So far I've not really found many cons as it does what it does. I think the hardest part is really making sure to get in the habit and our company really had to come together to say "We're going to do this every week, without fail."

Once everyone is onboard, it really shows.

Overall: It is a weekly diary that I use for both myself and my manager so that we both know what I've done and what I want to do. Sometimes it is hard to remember what accomplishments you've had down the road, and this way it is all on paper.

Pros: It's intuitive, heading in the right direction on how 1:1, feedback and performance reviews should happen. They are continuing to build on the product and releasing new features regularly. I didn't find many products like 15Five.

Cons: There are still some bugs however their customer support team is absolutely outstanding. Some of the workflows can be a bit confusing (1:1 under 'my teams') however it sounds like these are being figured out. No Android app functionality at this time.

Amy,

Thank you very much for writing this review! We value every single piece of feedback. I'll be sure to let our support team know about your message. They'll be delighted to hear it :)

Speaking to your point about where 1:1's live I understand it's clunky to find that now. We are building a 1:1 tab completely on its own at the top. Coming soon!

Hoping to release an android app in 2018. Thanks for bearing with us :)

Just want to thank you for the candid review. We appreciate it! Let us know if you have any other feedback.

Sincerely,
Priscilla Zorrilla
Customer Success Manager @ 15Five

Pros: The high five-ing system, definitely! It is really rewarding, especially once the entire company is on board and and sending out public high fives appreciating and acknowledging people for their hard work!

Cons: Hard to pinpoint anything, I probably don't use the full set of features (am not an administrator). Maybe it's lacking some more statistics around top highfiver, most appreciated. Would like to see some new features there, e.g. "most appreciated this month". The reason being that our product and engineering team got a head start on using 15Five (before the rest of the company caught on), and so we're always at the top.

Overall: Capterra or 15Five? Sorry, this isn't so clear!

Capterra looks like a reasonable survey system, however please know that the star system is not usable on both iOS mobile or tablet (was using an iPhone 5S and iPad Air).

Great Communication Tool!

Pros: I've been able to express topics that I may not have been able to put into words as well as keep track of my progress somewhere where my manager can see it, so I am not doing double the effort somewhere else.

We really like how you can send someone a summary of a conversation for them to see then it can be edited or replied to in case there are any discrepancies.

Cons: The ONLY thing that would make it easier would be if action items in our con1s would automatically be added or give you the option to add to the next 15Five in the same way that your goals can be pushed to the next week.

Cons: Can't really think of something. Initially I believe you could not have different owners for key results, but you can now and we love it!

Overall: Cross team recognition grew organically with the HighFives. Leadership did not ask or really highlight this feature initially and employees started actively giving HighFive to each other. The weekly 15Five has eased communication by providing regular check in's. Personally the pulse check is such a quick gauge into how someone is feeling and managers can touch base if they are having a tough week or celebrate an awesome week. We just launched our first review process for the company using BestSelf Review!

Pros: I like how simple and easy it is to use and how great it has been for our team dynamics. It has greatly improved our one on one meetings. We can articulate our thoughts with our supervisors and subordinates without the pressure of them being in the room. Then because we already about the issues, we can talk about them without the awkwardness. 15five allows for honest and clear communication which is crucial for a successful organization.

Cons: I like the ability to change up questions and interact with scales, numbering questions and such. there are no cons that I can think of.

Overall: this benefits our team dynamics and communication.

Pros: It's really just so intuitive and easy to use. I really love being able to look back in history to check out particular 1:1 topics and look at my own trends and consider feedback. Plus, who doesn't love high fives?!

I am CONSTANTLY recommending 15five to friends and family. I really can't speak highly enough about the product or the people behind it.

Cons: I've really enjoyed it overall. Most of my observations have been more feature-requests than cons. Perhaps the biggest con is that (at least with the configuration my company has), employees that aren't managers don't have a lot of visibility into metrics. Having a way to see, for example, what some common themes are for a given week in response to a particular question would be really nifty. Being able to take that information and convert it into a goal/challenge/accomplishment etc. would be even niftier. But I have no doubt that features along those lines will happen :)

Cons: Would have like better integration with other office productivity tools. Notifications got a little out of hand so our administrator had to dial it back down.

Simple and effective.

Cons: Would love for it to build OKRs management as well along with performance reviews mechanisms.

Overall: Without 15Five I'd have no idea what my whole company was thinking and no way to record their thoughts, ideas, feedback and act upon it.

We could do this via email or google docs but that means a lot of operational work to maintain docs and data and no clean way of providing two feedback or conversations.

15Five takes away all the headache and through a wonderful product delivers a simple and effective way to stay in touch with your team's pulse and culture and really act on great thoughts, conversations, feedback. Everyone should be using it.

For quick-n-easy 360 degree company feedback, this allows you to keep your finger on the pulse.

Comments: Everyone communicates differently; some more verbally, while others have a tendency to write more than they speak. When using this in combination with your regular team touch points, you can preload important questions for the week, gauge morale and frustrations, plus get a sense of where employees find the most reward.

The responsiveness of the 15five team in dealing with issues, feedback, or simply a question, is quite high, and always friendly.

The web interface is quite fast, smooth and simple to use.

Pros: It is easy to use, sends reminders and allows me to quickly and easily get an idea of how our team is feeling and doing overall. I love the 1:1 feature and use that regularly for my 1:1s with my team members.

Cons: I feel like the questions do become redundant at times. Some of the questions do not prompt as much feedback from team members than others (sometimes they only give a simple yes/no). Could be a user issue with how we have it set up, but having some more recommendations on good questions would be good.

Overall: We are a completely remote organization and so we do not have the regular stop and chat with team members in the way that organizations who are not remote. 15Five has been a good way for us to "smoke out" issues with the team and be able to nip them in the bud.

Cons: The software does not have any focus on other HR requirements like Workday does. I feel that eventually companies like Workday are going to outright buy 15five or OC Tanner to add people engagement to their suite of tools

Overall: 15Five solves bad people engagement practices by instituting a cadence of pulse, checkins, priorities, goal setting, and recognitions.

Cons: email reminders about it being due so often; Its established as part of our routine as managers...so I don't need to know "its due tomorrow'... then "its due today" then "you haven't submitted it yet" etc.

Pros: - Cadence of feedback (weekly)

- Ability to make "private" comments to manager to document straight-forward and honest concerns or other sensitive comments you don't want to make publicly.

- Track record of how things are going

Overall: - Helpful for team communication

- Great for cadence of providing feedback and starting important conversations with manager

Pros: This really helps great a platform where staff can feel heard and valued by management, and best of all, it's delivered in a way that is easy to use and engaging. The questions are well formulated, and often lead to deeper discussion in our 1:1's, helping to create a better team environment. It's helped our team culture, as each member feels invited and supported in speaking their truth and gets immediate feedback from their supervisor, and praise from their teammates!

Cons: For our set up as a scattered team, often based out of different locations, it can be difficult to sit down on a weekly basis to complete, but this is also exactly why it's needed.

Cons: I can't really think of much that I don't like about the software. I am a lower level user, and not an admin.

Overall: Its great to get a pulse on employees through this. I also really like the public high five section. You can see who others in the company have given kudos to.

Pros: 15Five is an excellent way to get team members to take stock of how their work experience is going.

What I liked the most about using 15Five was the opportunity it gave me to reflect on my week, take some accountability, and give some much needed Feedback to my leaders.

The app itself was really easy to use. Straightforward and intuitive.

Cons: 15Five, like other activities of this type, is only as effective as the user makes it. Meaning, if a team member is continuously giving feedback on a subject, and not getting any sort of response, the software can become counterproductive and in fact have a negative impact on the user.

Overall: 15Five, when it was good, was great. It was essentially a safe space to give feedback and the fact that leaders can respond right on the app is super cool.

However, nothing beats face to face communication.

Great way to harness of all the organization's performance management into a simple system.

Pros: I've used this product at two very different companies on both sides, reviewing and filling out 15fives. They're great. The suggested questions are great and it's really easy to add new ones. Once we started using the tool, I saw changes pretty quickly at my comapny. I've also tried to do the same thing for those employees for which I am a reviewer. I think every company needs to go through the weekly feedback process and 15five is simply a really easy and efficient way to do it.

Cons: I'm highly critical and I'm not sure that there are any. Although, I'm not the one who pays for it so maybe that's a con?

Therefore, it'd be great if both the manager and employee had the same level of access to add/edit the 1:1 feature (for instance, only Manager's can add Action Items).

Pros: 15Five is short and to the point. I have used other tools in the past that were never useful with being too long and were not effective. With 15Five, management can quickly see what you are working on and accomplishing on a weekly basis, along with knowing what your barriers are and how they can help. I had some pain points that I identified in 15Five, and they were worked on and resolved, which to me was outstanding and a very effective result with using the system (unlike other tools that I felt that I used in the past that brought nothing to the table).

Cons: I feel like you should be able to indicate when you are on vacation, and not filling it out, so as not to be dinged in your stats of completing a session or not completing a session.

It has not only helped me achieve more in my role but communicate common barriers to my supervisor that often hold up projects costing time and/or money.

Cons: The constant notifications. But, I went into settings and turned most of them off to avoid all of the emails being received.

Overall: It has given me the opportunity to look back over previous 15Five's and see how far I have come over the last 6 months! Love being able to interact on both desktop and iPhone versions.

Pros: Sometimes I feel directionless on Monday mornings. I love how 15Five cures this by having me reflect on what I accomplished (and didn't) the previous week, and also sets me up for success with what I need to do for the upcoming week.

I also really like the platform it provides for engaging with my manager, giving him insights into my current pros, cons, and areas of concern, so that we can address them together head-on.

Cons: There are times when it can be a little tedious to answer some of the same questions over again weekly. This is probably more on my managers than the software though.

Overall: My overall experience with 15Five is very positive. It helps me keep track of my personal goals and initiatives within the company as well as helps us manage our team-wide responsibilities and KPI's.

Cons: Perhaps it is something that I just don't know how to do well, but I think the Department and company wide objectives could be integrated better. We have some setup but there is not a great way to divide out individual responsibilities without setting up individual objectives and linking them to the parent objective. I wish I could delegate key results of department objectives to individual objectives.

Pros: It's a simple concept, right? But after using 15five for just over a year, the value we've seen from it has been incredible. The thing we love most as a company is how it's increased transparency within our company. Ever week we get a fun, simple questionnaire to fill out that fosters that connection and transparency with our managers.

The given, simplified opportunity to let your manager know how you're feeling is something a lot of companies'especially large ones'don't get. This tool alleviates that problem. Plus, customized questions give that personal touch.

Pros: It is not overcomplicated and easy to get started on. There is lots of flexibility with how frequently it needs to be updated and the complexity of your usage. For those wanting to track KPIs or OKRs it provides be a great day-to-day way of managing them. In addition, you can still use it for long term projects too.

Cons: It would be nice if it also provided a one-stop system for HR management too. And at times the simplicity can be an issue as you wish that it could go that little bit further, allowing you to integrate goals across teams and almost have a kanban structure overlaying it.

Pros: Ease of use combined with the features make this a fun tool for leaders and team members alike.

Cons: The only con is working in all the cool features as a new user. We want to use it all right now, but also need to grow into some of these features.

Overall: Company culture is one of the most important parts about working for our company. This tool not only helps us reinforce our culture, but also keeps team accountability fresh and current. Recognition, reinforcement, and motivation is crucial and 15Five helps us do that so that it's an engagement opportunity, not a weekly obligation. Love the new features added and look forward to the new tools as this seems to be growing at the same rate as our own organization.

Recommendations to other buyers: The people, the technology, and the dedication to employee engagement is unparalleled in this space. Sign up if you're company knows they need more of this or need to refine their current processes.

Pros: Easy to use, no need to maintain software or data.

Cons: Nothing at the moment.

Overall: I am a remote employee, so 15Five helps me in a number of ways - first it helps me keep my manager abreast of what I have been doing all week; second, its sharing features helps me keep in touch with what my colleagues are doing; and finally, it serves as a written record of what I have accomplished that quarter or year. Status reporting sounds easy and almost trivial, but having jerry-built a system using Google forms in a previous job, I know there are quite a few challenges. 15Five provides a comprehensive system and manages to make status reporting fun. Also they are quite responsive and are always on the lookout for new feature suggestions so they can improve their system.

Recommendations to other buyers: No.

Pros: This tool is excellent at keeping my boss and I on the same page. You can easily add talking points for your upcoming meeting and keep track of your conversations, priorities and even annual 'wins' and 'challenges'.

Cons: The mobile app is good but isn't as robust as the desktop version.

Overall: Love this tool. It keeps both myself and my boss in regular contact and helps to plan out next steps and accomplishments.

Pros: 15five offers the possibility to have everything you need for tracking general tasks and progress in one place. You can look up previous weekly reports for context, get feedback from employees on specific topics, can track 1:1s with your manager, and give colleagues recognition in the High Five section. I started using 15Five 6 months ago and it is great!

Cons: So far, 15five only helped me to be more efficient and find everything I need in one spot.

No complaints up until today!

Overall: 15Five allows me to pause and consciously think about what achievements and challenges I experienced in a specific week. It provides a great basis for conversations with my manager, honor my co-workers hard work in the high five section, and allows me to give feedback to the executive level of the company.

Pros: I enjoy the ease of use, the time it takes and how it allows my manager to keep a pulse on our engagement - it helps set priorities for the coming week, ensures alignment and serves as topical areas for our 1:1.

Cons: I'm not sure if our company/leaders are incentivized for our scores, but everyone receives an "intervention" if you rate a 3 or less. This has led to the unintended consequence of folks lying about their scores. How are scores normalized across the group? There should be some stronger definition around the star rating perhaps.

Overall: I believe our leaders are using 15Five as an engagement pulse tool and to set the tactical arm for our OKRs. I LOVE the ability to high five colleagues and have the wider team view it. Gives a sense of good-will, team and individual recognition.

Just wow!!

Cons: None

Overall: I love 15Five! It's a great way to hear how my employees are doing and communicate my successes and challenges to my manager. For such a simple function of feedback, it packs a ton of well-designed features. For example, I love that I can pass things up from my employees to my manager, which is a great way for employees to see their comments be heard by those higher up in the organization. I wouldn't want to manage my team without 15Five!

Pros: I really like the 1:1 feature, that allows both shared and private notes, talking points, and action items! And they are great to refer back to if needed. I also love the high five feature to celebrate wins with your co-workers.

Cons: There is nothing that I have come across that I don't like so far! I don't think our team has utilized it enough though, in terms of exploring all of the features this software has to offer (examples: objectives, wins & challenges, career vision, etc.)

Overall: I am very satisfied with 15Five! I think weekly 15Fives are great for transparency and keep me on track. It opens up a dialogue with my manager on things I am doing well or need help on, as well as overall feeling, night/weekend work, etc. I think it's a great product that all companies should use!

Pros: 1. I love the simplicity of the program and the flexibility of the sections.

2. It is an excellent and quick way to keep track of what you are doing and keep your priorities in front of you.

3. It also gives me a chance to hear feedback from my supervisor as to what they believe about my choices for priorities and feedback on what I am doing.

4. I love the encouragement piece even if it is only used occasionally.

Cons: 1. I wish the sections were labeled differently to better explain what they could be used for.

2. Like anything it takes time...

Not a lot of con's! I like it!!

Overall: We are in Education and serving schools in Southern Ohio. This gives us the ability to keep track of what we are doing and get feedback quickly.

Pros: I like that it keeps me engaged, per week, and allows for me to let my superiors know what I've been up to.

Cons: When I'm unable to document my status for the week, I sorta' wish that there was a way to keep your record at 100% (On Time) if you have an excusable absence. Not's not really a big deal, but maybe there can be a feature in regards to this in the future?

Overall: For now, I feel like it's helping us solve communication errors. It gives our managers an idea of what direction we're going, where we want to go, and how we're tackling that approach. This makes it a little easier for managers to help mold our future.

Pros: - It gives you the ability to make a weekly Journal of your activity throughout the week in a few minutes a day.

- It has a clean simple interface that is easy to use.

- You can give anyone a "High Five" for a job well done.

- Goals and priorities are easy to set and track progress.

Cons: - Sometimes the rotating questions can be tough to answer. If you just can't think of anything but this is also good because it really makes you think.

Overall: It's a really great product that is easy to use.

Pros: I like having my weekly to do lists all in one place and I really like the statistics it provides on the percentages of what has gotten done and not gotten done. Also the opportunity to recognize a colleague publicly for going the the extra mile by giving them a high five. It is a great organizational tool, I am glad we use it. The weekly reminders are also very helpful.

It's good service to say Thanks.

I have more chances to say appreciation to others.
