We installed this software over a year ago, and after considerable time and expense to getting it installed and configured, we pulled it out and replaced with more effective, easier to use, and faster software after 9 months struggling with Peoplestreme. To be fair, we had to purchase 2 pieces of software to do what Peoplestreme claimed to be able to do - Workable for recruitment and candidate management and PeopleGoal for performance management, however this has proven to be a far better solution than the debacle that is Peoplestreme.
The biggest problem is the UI - it makes no sense at all, and seems to have been created with no overall sense of design, and certainly no significant user experience modelling. Its as if given the option to implement a feature in several different ways, the developer always chose the easiest to code rather then the option that makes sense to the end user. All our staff, managers and team leaders hated it. Universally. We have implemented around 8 significant pieces of software in our business in the last 5 years, and we have never had worse feedback from our people about an installation. There are far better tools available on the market that do the same job in a manner that actually works.
The claimed feature set is pretty good. We chose to implement this software based on the wide range of features and functionality, and while most of these features technically exist, they are not well integrated, and there is zero benefit to have them in a single package.
None of the claimed features work well, and they certainly don't work well together. The user interface is a disgrace. Its inconsistent and non intuitive. The software is slow - page loading times are frustrating to say the least. Implementation and training services are poor. Peoplestreme staff used to provide training don't know the software well. This is not surprising as the software is complex and difficult to understand. It's painful and time consuming to do performance reviews. Its overly complex and very limiting i you have to set up job descriptions and goals. Reporting is amateurish and there is no proper access to the database - we wanted to build our own reports using SQL queries due to the limitations of the included reports, but couldn't.
Don't! Whatever you do, don't lock into a long term contract. Demmand a trial period. Get someone internally to actually use the software before you purchase it, and compare the user experience with several other (far better, more efficient and effective, better featured, and cheaper) alternatives. If the purpose of implementing Peoplestreme is to improve engagement, this software within our organisation had the opposite effect. Performance reviews and milestones became a chore to be avoided.

I have used PeopleStreme in one of my companies and was impressed with their dashboards and system functions. A good option to explore!
