Pros

Lever is an easy and intuitive Applicant Tracking system with an amazing custom success team. The company continually rolls out new product features and is always seeking to improve and build upon the existing (impressive) foundation and I'm excited to continue growing our organization with the tool.

Cons

There is limited ability to customize features (calendar invites etc.) within Lever as the current tool stands but am hopefuly/confident these capabilities will continue to be developed.

Customer reps are exceptionally great and deserve much praise.

Pros

Everyone from the implementation specialists to the account managers are incredible to work with. They are quick to respond, resolve, and always happy to help. The ATS is simply laid out, easy to use, and has more than enough features to make you more efficient.

Cons

The biggest con is not having a mobile app. Using Lever on a mobile device is quite limited, and if you request the desktop version, it is not easy to scroll around. This could be massively improved.

Bottom line: In my opinion, Lever is the best ATS out there. Beats its competitors by at least a mile. Keep up the great work!

Pros

- Scheduling interviews have never been easier for our Talent Team. Our conference rooms are linked to Lever so we can do everything without checking Google Calendar!
- Easy to use interface. Every tab, page, and profile is very user-friendly, with the recruiter/hiring manager in mind.
- Sending candidates a link to schedule their phone interview cuts down on the back and forth.
- Communication between approvers, hiring managers and interviewing team is ridiculously easy that even my mom can use Lever.
- Automatic job posting to external job boards. Super easy to use for niche job boards as well!
- The referral system is super easy for folks who don't use Lever on a daily basis.
- Customizable application per posting. SUPER easy. I love this feature.
- Reports are very easy to pull and read.
- Recruiters have control over who they involve in the hiring process. Before when we didn't have Lever, all hiring managers had access to every single job posting and its applicants in front of them. Now, we assign them to specific jobs they own. They can't see anything else.
- Lever Extension on Chrome is insane, in a very good way. Extremely helpful when you're sourcing candidates on LinkedIn!
- Andrew is great. Always there when we had questions and always willing to hop on a call with us.
- Implementation phase was super quick and simple. The Lever team did whatever we asked and in turn, we did whatever they asked.

Cons

- Requisition approval needs fine tuning. When we decide to hire internally for a requisition that has already been approved, we have to delete the current req and add another one indicating it was an internal hire in order for us to report on the number of internal hires. There's very little you can do with a req once it's been approved without getting the approvers involved again.
- Offer approval is backward, in my opinion. The letter should be drafted first, then sent out to the approvers for their review. Right now, it's approval first, then offer letter draft.
- Referrals are counted as "applicants" and not "leads." That's crazy to me.
- Once a lead has applied through our careers website, we have to manually move them from the lead bucket to the applicant bucket. There's no automatic transfer. No notification, either.

Basically, I'm a huge Lever fan, and I love that their quest to always make the system better never ends!

Pros

- Fantastic team that effectively sets you up for success
- Simple, clean UI, not clunky
- Features are regularly updated
- Ability to tailor application stages
- Ability to sync with Gmail and Slack is fantastic

Cons

- Greater ability to tweak and tailor the access/editing ability of Line Managers
- Line Managers may require a different dashboard set up, they seem to be easily confused by what they see
- Creating email templates can be a little finicky, it would be good if the email could take structures like tables
- Price may be a little expensive for small companies, however, I feel it is a good investment

Pros

- easy to navigate

- Integration with GCal and Gmail and Docusign
- can have agencies submit into the tool
- customizable feedback forms

Cons

- hard to customize certain processes
- can't customize access for all employees
- some features are unclear without explanation; help text sometimes doesn't provide clarity for the functionality
- difficult to build future pipelines or "project folders" for future sourcing
- agencies can't track their candidates in the tool (agency portal) so we have to manually keep them updated
- overall management of everyone's Lever access -- experienced many bugs in the backend and reoccurring issues

We have only been using the product since August, so we've had a lot of transitional pains, but I'm hoping we settle into a good groove soon.

Cons

The product is not as customizable as we thought it would have been. Our company moves very fast and wants improvements very fast, but we are only one client and do not see those changes made as quickly as we would like.

Our implementation consultant has been fantastic! Clearly knows this platform inside and out. We lucked out getting him. Now if we could only keep him post-implementation, we'd be set! :)

Pros

The candidate-centric workflow was admittedly a bit different to get used to, but now that we're in the system and familiar with it, it's really the most logical way to view candidates. The UI is fantastic, intuitive, and clean. Loving it so far.

Cons

The only downside (if I have to pick one) is that the req association with a job is a bit different. We'll get used to that too, though. I'm confident it'll get easier

Pros

So easy/intuitive to use. Ample training/support materials. Customer service chat responded within 24 hours. our implementation specialist is a ROCKSTAR! He explains everything very clearly and his thorough implementation plan and organization have made the process as seamless as possible.

Cons

There are still a few features that are missing: making requisition info information secret (compensation bands), customizing Offer Form fields further with dropdowns, multiple choice, etc. instead of just text and being able to put the fields in a specific order in the form, etc. but I believe a lot of these are in the product pipeline.

Pros

We wanted something that could be implemented quickly and easily, it was also important that the price made sense for the value. We¿ve found that the system is intuitive and allows us to keep track of candidates in an organized meeting. Lever has provided all of this. The UI is super intuitive. The learning period for comfortably navigating the system and time to value was minimal. This has been a great tool for our team and even better for our hiring managers who are loving the new system.With our old ATS the problem we ran into was that our hiring managers never used it and wouldn¿t to leave notes or feedback about their interviews. As we scaled we knew we needed a new solution and Lever was an easy choice. I've never seen hiring managers and recruiters so responsive and thorough in their use of an ATS before. If you want a seamless process and architecture that even your developers will appreciate, without spending a fortune, Lever is by far the best option.

Cons

Reporting could be more robust - more funnel reporting and visualizations in the reporting section.

Streamlined interviewing, more efficient communication within our team, more specific feedback from hiring managers after interviews, easier sourcing through chrome extension and nurture/email integration.

Pros

Lever Nurture has been a huge help; starting an email campaign and forgetting it let's me consistently move forward to find more candidates. The scheduling process has been improved too through Lever's calendar integration, and note tagging. Note tagging and email integration has helped our team communicate more effectively regarding the hiring process.

Cons

I've run into a few bugs, but they've all quickly been resolved through the support team. I have had some persistent alerts telling me to complete feedback, and I would like to see an easier way to dismiss those alerts (most frequently, I'm not completing feedback because a candidate didn't answer the phone for a scheduled interview).

It has saved us so many person hours in scheduling and it gives us so much passive recruiting functionality we were missing with Greenhouse.

Pros

I adore Lever. the UX is amazing, simple and soooo intuitive. Lever has saved us so much time doing scheduling and daily ATS activities and the team loves it. It's SUCH an improvement over Greenhouse. They're also amazing about implementing our feature requests. All my pet peeves are gone. It's so fabulous.

Cons

When you click into reports, sometimes the dates default to the last date you used so the data appears incomplete. It's possible to spend some time sending emails to support before you realize it's an issue of selecting a date. But I bet they'll have a solution for this soon. We have it in as a feature request.

An improved hiring and recruiting process.

Pros

It keeps everything hiring related in one organized, easy-to-use place. Lever provides great visibility around candidates both at a high level and a very detailed level. Lever allows our company to make better decisions when hiring by encouraging feedback and notes around candidates. The tools that are available in Lever are industry-wide best practices, and Lever makes them easy to use and implement.

Cons

The only con (which isn't even truly a con) is that it is a new process, so it takes some effort to get the internal team onboard. This would be true of any product though, and Lever does do an amazing job of providing training resources to make the adoption as easy as possible. My implementation specialist actually trained all of my hiring managers which was a huge help to me!

Fast implementation and excellent candidate management!

Pros

The software is easy to implement, it is easy to train hiring managers how to use, it is easy to configure, it is just easy.

With a candidate-centric view of the world, it allows us to easily shift candidates from one potential role to another, or no role at all, and still be able to keep track of them.

The integration with Google Enterprise Calendars and Mail makes scheduling phone calls and interviews incredibly easy, and the calendar events have links to the forms we set up to capture interview information.

E-Mail templates, including links to allow candidates to schedule their own interviews, are easy to use and have fields that are auto-populated from the candidates' information.

Cons

There are still some glitches in the e-mail templates as far as what the sender sees, but it is fine for what the recipient sees.

Pros

The customer rep was incredibly helpful in walking me through how to use this platform, she went above and beyond making sure I understood how to use all the functions of Lever to the best of my ability. Without this amazing training I would not have been able to utilize this amazing platform as well as I currently do.
I love the way the candidate timeline is displayed
I love the ability to pull so many reports
I love the scheduling function and how it integrates with Google Calendar

Cons

One con I noticed is I cannot schedule a Google Hangouts call within the "Scheduling" function in Lever. This would be helpful when setting up video chats for my other team members.

Pros

Navigating Lever is extremely easy, you can work with their support team to customize how you break down your candidate pipeline so that hiring managers in the field who don't fully understand recruiting or the interview process, can easily jump in and still know where to go and what to do.

Their Account Management and Support Teams are fantastic and extremely helpful! Their team truly cares about my company and wants us to grow and succeed. Additionally, they have been flexible with me on many different topics to make my experience better.

Cons

The reporting features need a bit of work, they get the job done, but you have to really dig in and experiment to fully understand how each report functions. It only pulls reports in lists of candidate info, would be nice if it gave me exportable hard numbers.

Decreased time-to-hire, created a database of past applicants, and made us more organized on a whole

Pros

We were given two months to implement Lever and it took us less than two weeks. The Slack integration and the feedback forms have dramatically decreased our time-to-hire by allowing me to send internal interview reminders and instantly solicit feedback. The scheduling software is ahead of the curve providing tools that gsuite doesn't plan to roll out until the end of the year at the earliest.

Cons

The one issue we have with Lever is that we can't pull out or share candidate profiles with people that don't have a company email address

Ease of full cycle recruiting and ensuring a uniform candidate experience.

They really take their customer feedback and actively develop the platform.

Pros

We wanted something that could be implemented quickly and easily, it was also important that the cost made sense for the value of our rapidly growing team. We needed a platform to help us connect all of our job boards and postings for a unified candidate experience. Lever has provided all of this! The platform is intuitive and the Customer Support team is always ready and willing to help make the platform the most efficient for our team's use.

This has been a great tool for our team and even better for our hiring managers who are loving the new system.

Pros

When we sought to replace our outdated, clunky ATS with something more modern, because of the nature of our business and related recruiting challenges, the product we selected would have to be user friendly, intuitive, relational and possess strike-zone reporting capabilities. Upon doing plenty of research on competing products, Lever emerged as the clear favorite. The CRM features are terrific for pipeline building, the tool is so easy to learn and use, and the information available through reporting provides the unique analytics that are critical to creating a more efficient talent acquisition process. It's almost as if Lever was created just for companies our size, with our unique culture, vision and values.

Cons

The one feature I would like to see change is to have the ability for multiple interviewers to leave feedback on a single feedback form.
