Cons
"We're not receiving the proper support.""I would like to see improvements in the user experience, specifically reducing the number of clicks required to achieve desired outcomes. Additionally, enhancing the look and feel of the front end and allowing for a greater level of configuration would be beneficial. Its pricing should be less.""Lacks relevancy for the current generation.""The solutions could improve by having better performance. There are times when we have experienced some delays. The reports could be quicker.""We have received some unfavorable feedback regarding Oracle HCM Cloud's performance. This has led us to investigate alternative solutions. In my own experience, I have struggled with the slowness of the cloud assessment and the overwhelming complexity of the software's robust architecture. I have reservations about sharing any positive experiences I may have had with the solution.""It's not so easy to customize as it's cloud-based.""Cloud learning can be improved.""The interface could be more user friendly."

More Oracle HCM Cloud Cons →

"The Work Center feature in PeopleSoft is a step in the right direction in consolidating someone's role-based interaction with the system. This enhanced functionality streamlines workflows and improves efficiency.""Scalability is not there in PeopleSoft. Its performance and resilience are also very bad. When you're trying to stretch it, it breaks. It is not resilient. It is also not stable. It is stable as far as data is concerned, but the infrastructure is not stable.""On the other hand, the more recent push for standardization precludes customized approaches to certain industry requirements.""Response time takes very long and requires a person to be awake night and day to benefit from it.""I would like to see it become available again in Mexico.""The implementation of PeopleSoft is quite complex and is not as easy as other cloud products such as SuccessFactor or Workday.""We have already deployed it and we have had it for several years but we are switching to a modern HCM SaaS cloud product.""Often support just asks people to install a lot of upgrades. Sometimes they don't really give you clear details as to why you need to upgrade. They just say, "You need to upgrade this because there's a newer image, etc". They never really give you the reason underlying why you are having errors."
