Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The most valuable features are that we can upload documents and download them on demand.""It is extremely user friendly. It is very flexible in managing recruitment, especially when you have thousands of applicants as we did. We easily had over 20,000 applicants within a year for some of our positions, so it made it very easy to manage a large application pool. It was very easy to customize by recruiter preference. When you open up someone's profile to see their experience, education, or other things, you can customize that for yourself. It was flexible in that, and each recruiter could set up their preferences. It didn't have to be set up so that everyone had to have the same landing platform, which was very helpful. As someone who trained other HR people on how to use the system, it was very easy to pick up and learn.""IBM Kenexa is fairly stable. We don't have any downtime."

"PeopleStrong Alt is flexible because it allows customization and the user's experience is very good.""Some of the most valuable features are the onboarding experience of new employees, the employee service portal, and the entire performance management system.""The hiring process is good. It will create a process-oriented procedure in terms of hiring, promotion, the movement of people, and other related HR tasks."

Cons
"I would not recommend IBM Kenexa to others.""The reporting tool is helpful, but it is not the easiest to train on or is not as understandable for other HR pros. Their Workbench site, which is the administrator site that you use to update your website, is not user-friendly. When updates are required, it is not that easy to manage because Workbench is not user friendly. It required more work from the admins. They have Workbench training, which actually was very unhelpful. It took eight hours to complete, and it was not very helpful. Their customer service when it comes specifically to their Workbench site is not helpful.""I would like to have a better and more user-friendly interface."

"The global scalability and support could improve.""It would be helpful if you could work offline because sometimes, we have problems with internet connectivity.""They could include a sort of collaborative platform where employees are able to work together with a chat mechanism like WhatsApp and video chat."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Kenexa was fairly priced. However, in 2019, before I left my previous organization, they significantly increased their pricing. It can be affordable, but their pricing is going up. It is not just licensing; it is how many applicants you have in your system on the database side."
