The system has some nice features, but is not user-friendly, is visually hard to follow, and customer service is simply not sufficient

Pros

Past and future goal areas are spacious; scale for self-scoring imposed on manager's scoring is great

Cons

doesn't work within our employee anniversary years so the dates are always wrong, very hard to reach or get a response from customer service; employees have had problems with losing data accidentally

A good choice for a small non profit organization.

Pros

Answered questions, provided information and demonstration that I needed UP FRONT instead of having me slog through multiple sales discussions first. Gave me some "hands on" experience before we signed a contract. VERY valuable in making our decision.

A big disappointment how the software package was sold and how in reality it is.

Pros

Potential to be the real thing, looked great on the website and sales team knows how to sell it. Hope - that's what the software has.

Cons

Intentionally stripped down of key features in making the software useless. Can't add any employee records to employee, can't add any notes or history comments, can't have other coworkers comment on employee, can't send questioners to other coworkers, can't add praise to employees, etc and much more - the essentials of what this software is meant to be.

Ease-of-use

Value for Money

This product was Easy to implement and provided a great degree of flexibility for the needs of our business. Given the SaaS/Cloud based platform, we were able to deploy this globally through our 9 offices in US, Europe, Asia, and MiddleEast. The GUI was highly intuitive require very little training for the Users. The ease of generating Performance reports and integrating with the legacy HRIS system made this a valuable tool. The easy GUI also made the acceptance easy for the staff.

The different levels of access control enabled the Staff, Supervisors, and HR to freely record their comments and input. The pricing of this product was a Subscription based and was in line with the market and met our budgetary constraints. The maintenance and upgrades to the platform for non-interruptive and non-intrusive. The platform was easily maintained by non-Technical HR team.

Pros

GUI was very user-friendly
Reports and Action plan items could easily be generated.
Pricing was in line with the market.

Cons

Some visual tools for showing performance against the Career Objective Plan would be very useful.
Multi-language deployment would be very useful for non-native Language users.

Advice to Others

A Great tool if it can be integrated with your existing HRIS system. It worked great for a mid-size form, for a large size company you would need to evaluate the platform's ability to integrate with large ERP installations. If a mobile based interface is required then this needs to be evaluated further.

This is the Bentley of LMS systems. It has everything you need and more!

Pros

Robust.

Cons

Lack of support after implementation.

Advice to Others

Do your research! The system is extremely expensive. Have a plan. Don't end up spending 100% of your budget when you are only ready to utilize 3% of the system. The system does a lot but, it still needs a driver. This means you will need a strong LMS administrator. Make the investment in your driver! Don't buy a luxury automobile if you can't afford the gas!

Cornerstone accurate reports learning

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Customer Support

I've used Successfactors and Cornerstone. I did have many issues with Successfactors not registering completion. I haven't experienced that at all with Cornerstone. I completely trust the results. I think a few things need to be better. If I make learning Inactive, I want it removed from the Learners Transcript. I never want the individual material Items to be left when I make a curriculum Inactive. The thing that I really have an issue is removing learning from individuals. There is no bulk functionality. I have to click approximately 3 times for each item I want to remove and I have to do that for each person.

Pros

accuracy

Cons

deleting learning from users (no bulk activity)
Reporting is not ideal. I want a simple report to show what curriculum is our user's transcript as incomplete. The report shows the curriculum for each item not completed. I just need the overall status and I'm unable to use the report because there are more than 5000 lines because of this repeating of the curriculum over an over.

Easy to use OUs to improve employee engagement by providing specialized training program with content relevant to their roles or departments
Fun social learning with their social collaboration tools
Many OTS 30,000 course titles to choose from.
Ability to build course in a page

Cons

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.

Cornerstone CSB has been a paramount part of the overhaul we are doing of our HR process. We purchased the platform 8 months ago, and have done a review cycle already with great success. The best thing I can say about Cornerstone CSB is the quality of the support service. They have been available to answer questions and help me configure and customize the system to my needs. I am an HR director, but the CEO and executive team in general were aware that reviews needed to be made functional in order to help increase revenue and hold on to good employees.

We are still in the middle of our first cycle, but already our employees are more engaged in the review process than ever before.

Pros

1. User experience and ease of use.
2. Growth Center! The step-by-step instructions and videos have been a saving grace for the admin side AND our employees.
3. Ability to create our own competencies and overall format.
4. Automatic email reminders
5. There aren't too many bells and whistles which are a GOOD thing. I think companies abandon proper Performance Review tools when they are over-complicated or hard to use.
6. LOVE the new feature which allows me to view the review platform through the eyes of a different user. This allows me to see if I missed a competency or added something I shouldn't, as well as ensure the overall user experience will be good.

Cons

From an admin standpoint, I wasn't aware how long the back-end set-up would take. This wasn't so much a problem until I realized we had to manually enter all ratings (there should be an option to choose a rating scale set-up for "all"); and manually include the comment box (since comments are "optional" anyway, there should be a default box to check that all competencies get a comment box. Sub-competencies should also get a comment box (perhaps with fewer characters) so people can add comments below each vs. adding their comments to the overarching competency comment box. And worse, I had to assign roles to comment boxes which seemed like an unnecessary action. Hopefully they can improve this function in one of the next updates.

Less administration, better participation, more feedback to employees.

Pros

The system is very easy for managers and employees to use and Cornerstone has been very responsive to our suggestions for improvement.

Cons

We became a client early on and dealt with some bugs that they were still working out. We don't currently have all the functionality we would like, such as the ability for employees to enter goals and the ability to provide check-ins/updates throughout the year, but these enhancements are in the roadmap for this year.

The recent upgrade to the Growth Edition incorporated a lot of our feedback from prior years. A lot of our concerns were addressed. The software is intuitive and user friendly.
The Cornerstone support team and account managers are a pleasure to work with as well. Response times are always good.

Cons

At times, the amount of time it takes to load a page can be longer than ideal. This can cause frustration for managers, especially those writing multiple reviews which can be very time consuming by default.

Being able to keep track of people's goals each quarter and throughout the year.

Pros

I like the ability to be able to set your own customized competencies and goals. I also like how you can set your own performance template, or even create a custom one.

Cons

The Learning section doesn't have very much to offer as far as our company needs in particular. I would like to see a feature to be able to track which employees have completed our own training programs we've hosted at our company.

Pros

Eas fo use, visibility, Mobile. Ease of use, every time you review your employee you have all of the history at your fingertips.

We have had a little trouble creating our own learning modules, but this latest Growth Edition we expect will make that easier.

During the transition we had to back up everything and then with the new software our old goals did not transfer over. The managers were not happy that they had to now manually add everyone's goals again.
