Sometimes takes more clicks to accomplish a task than I think it should.
Dated interface

We are pleased that we will be able to use the current contact with Cornerstone to provide detailed reports based the criteria that is required by administrations within various departments of our company. This is an on going priority with our company. We are pleased to learn that we are able to better utilize more components to subscription we currently have.

Pros

We currently have a subscription/contract.
We can better utilize features that are offered with our subscription.
Detailed reports cam be created by departments based on administrative rights.
Pleased with the discussion links feature.
Proxy enrollment is standard but we are able to select enrollment based on specified criteria.

Cons

Versioning is limited- access to previous content is not able to be viewed once versioning has occurred. We are only able to see the content that has been updated; therefore, if legal reasons warrant us to pull training documentation we may be limited to the content that was presented for that individual.

Advice to Others

Before purchasing you need to make sure needs are clearly defined and addressed. Confirm pricing and if it includes a one time startup cost and if you contract includes technical support- if so is it included in your contract pricing.

It's fine until you want to CHANGE ANYTHING, then good luck to you. Despite my college degree, I had no idea what the support guy was trying to tell me. It could be because you have to download a massive excel spreadsheet and work that sheet like crazy, even for a small edit. If I can see competencies and goals online, why is it so hard to simple add or delete them online? Or better still, why can't I tell customer support what I want and have them go in and make the change in two seconds? No, it's a 4 hour process: download, edit (if you're able to sort through the massive number of tabs), upload, review etc., creates too much room for error and way too many steps in this day and age. I don't recommend this product. Support tries to help, but they don't know how to SIMPLIFY for the basic end user.

Recommendations

Ask how editing/ making changes works. Ask if you can cancel anytime or get a refund if not happy.

Cornerstone Performance is a module that can stand alone or integrate into their other products. This particular module works really well for organizational development and alignment. As in most organizations, getting end users to USE the technology is huge and Cornerstone has done a good job with their user interface. You have your competencies and your goals and a place to keep a development plan. 360s can be done easily. Finally, it has fantastic analytics. Once you start using the product for a couple of years, you can really analyze performance throughout the entire organization with solid data - which is usually lacking in performance appraisals. Overall, a useful tool for a learning organization.

Currently the platform is based on Flash technology which means the product is unusable on iPads. Further the User Experience is a little dated. Making changes in somewhat tedious as an administrator must e-mail changes to a specialist at Cornerstone via an excel spreadsheet (but they do have good customer service). Finally the competency library that comes with the product was developed by a company in New Zealand, so some of the competencies are not only outdated, but worded for folks who work in NZ.

Recommendations

I did my homework before selecting and demoed NUMEROUS vendors. I found Cornerstone was the easiest for end users to understand and integrate into their work life. It does well on the performance management side. If you are looking for more of the goal setting side, I would go with other products. But Cornerstone does strike a good balance between competencies and goals.

The product is amongst the easiest to use in the market and immediately adds value by simplifying the performance management process. Because of ease of use, it promotes a high adoption rate and users satisfaction. The vendor has been very responsive is resolving minor issues during the program's launch and has continued to provide excellent product support.

There are no major negative issues with this product or vendor.

Recommendations

Determine if the program will add value or is simply a must-do compliance system integral to other non-HR ERP systems. Will the program require significant training before launch? Will the product create value for your company and all users? Will it achieve high adoption and satisfaction rates from all users?

Manager's comments box does not identify who the manager was who completed the review like the 360 comments box contains the reviewers email address.

No check box to confirm the meeting has been completed. A number of performance reviews were displaying self assessor and manager assessments 100% complete, however the manager hadn't actually sat down with the employee and held the meeting with them.

Senior management are very frustrated that they can't see the content of the performance reviews for the subordinates under their direct reports. e.g. Store Supervisor can see their direct reports who are Store Managers, but they want to be able to see the performance review content for Department Managers underneath the Store Manager.

Store Managers want to be able to see their whole store team on the Analysis tab rather than only employees with the same role type.

Recommendations

It is really simple to use which is fantastic for the retail industry where employees are not always highly educated or have highly competent computer skills to use complex systems

Customer service can sometimes be tough to go through if you are in the U.S., as they are located in Australia. I do wish there were more prompts and directions for employees on how exactly to set up goals, ratings, and development plans. We had to develop our own training presentation to along with the system which works fine, but it would be better if that information could be reinforced while the employees go in to the system to enter their information.

Recommendations

It depends on the size of your company and the familiarity your employees have with performance reviews. The system is easy to use, but if employees are not familiar with how to set up performance reviews, they may need additional guidance.
