My team connected

All employee information in one place and digitized: wages, contracts, holidays, contact information... etc. Factorial team helped me a lot during the beginning in order to have everything updated. Both managers and employees perceived its benefits very quickly and it was very easy to change the way we managed HR stuff.

Pros

It helps me to ease communication. Everything I need related to HR in one place, easy for both employees and management in order to centralize HR information for both sides.

Cons

My labor advisor must be confortable with the software so that the whole flow makes sense, and sometimes is not that simple for him.

All hr information Conected in one platform

for me it is a great HR Platform, because you can manage everything in one tool! even if you are from the HR Department, or an user (employee) that self manage their neccesities.

Pros

it's easy to use. to ask for a free day it's quick, because your manager receive an alert to be approved or denied, you can control the schedules of all the employees, vacations, the exact hours an employee has worked. Also, all the information of all the employees in one hand.

Cons

I think it is necessary to find another way to control attendance, either by synchronizing with a work tool to avoid forgetting to record worker attendance. In my case, I had to set a daily alarm to remember to fill it.

It's good as a free tool for very small companies

Pros

It's free so that's good. You can do holiday mgmt, benefits and upload docs in one place, that separates them from other free tools

Cons

Very limited, as the reporting is very limited as well as the features. Can't do much once your company starts scaling.

Factorial my favorite HR software.

I have really enjoyed using Factorial as we HR tool. It is very easy to use and intuitive, comfortable, and very well-organized itself.

Pros

The best part of Factorial (for me) because I work in a large company is being able to locate people and recognize their roles, the team they belong to, and who their supervisor is. In addition, it is possible to see the entire organization chart. In this way, it is easier to know who to go to in different situations. For daily attendance control and requesting days off, it is also very easy to use.

Cons

I would like to be able to synchronize Factorial with my email or other work software, so I don't have to open the web to register my daily attendance.

This is an excellent software to get HR organized.

This software is easy to get started and is great for getting teams organized.

Pros

This software is great for getting HR setup and organized. It is easy to use and covers all of the basics and then some.

Cons

The one thing I would have liked is a page for Notes or personal remarks. Also a portion for performance reviews and/or appraisals.

Good for a very small company

It's a free software so I guess it does just enough for companies that can't afford a more robust solution. That said, I don't think there's anything better for free.

Pros

Being able to easily upload pay stubs, work and birthday anniversary notifications on the feed. Ability to set up different time-off types.

Cons

- impossible to integrate with other apps. - reports are very very limited, which makes the process of salary reviews or any other kind of review very difficult and impractical. - impossible to pull historical reports - impossible to customise reports - managers can't easily see their direct reports unless you set up teams - the process of terminating an employee and "re-hiring" them in the future is clunky (tenure adds up and vacation time accrues)

Much of the HR admin tasks are resolved

Much of my hate for the annoying HR and administrative processes is gone. It's a pleasant experience.

Pros

Incorporate multiple HR and administrative processes in a single, easy to use app. Interface is intuitive and clean.

Cons

Inability to create a more complex holiday request. If you want to request 2 days and a half you need to create 2 requests. One for the 2 days and another for the half.
