    Pros

    I like how fast and easy it is to navigate. I like the integrations with G-suite. I also really like the nurture component.

    Cons

    It is not as customizable as we thought it would be. As we were going through the integration we were able to see many things we need to change to make it work with our process.

    Pros

    Fairly feature complete and then some, with features like sending templated emails, interview scheduling, feedback, and metrics about hiring pipeline. Definitely a more modern version compared to other platforms out there, but this is a hard space to really shine.

    Cons

    There are definitely some quirks that are being ironed out as time goes on (for example, very coarse permissions being replaced by finer grain ones) and there is a decent amount of upfront setup in order to derive value -- but that's true with competitors as well.

    This is my first recruiting job and my first time using Lever. I can't imagine doing this job without using Lever: the features are great and the platform is super logical and effortless to learn. Our Customer Success Manager at Lever has been very helpful in helping us with implementation, supporting us and answering all of our questions. Thank you!

    Cons

    A few minor bugs here and there, but the support team has been great in responding and addressing these.

    Pros

    Lever is easy to use and mobile friendly our company loves the UI especially our Head of Engineering. Love that there is a seamless integration with google suite.

    Cons

    Some features need to be added and would love to have more integration options. For example our integration with DocuSign. Since we can't change the order of signatures in Lever we currently have to send outside of Lever.

    Offers
    - adding offer fields should have the same capabilities as adding req fields. Instead of having just a text box option to enter information.
    - If we can pull req info into the offer form that would be great. That way offer approvers are able to see that everything that is being offered is within budget since our FP&A likes to keep a close eye on budget.

    I am the sole HR person for my company. Lever allows me to effectively source, recruit and hire. Plus, i am able to manage my recruiting process and save time.

    Pros

    Easy Book Links so that you eliminate the back and forth of scheduling candidates for interviews.

    Cons

    I cannot think of anything. The Customer Success team is the best I've ever experienced.

    N/A

    Hiring pipeline tracking, referrals and post-interview debriefing amongst the team

    Pros

    I am not on our HR team, so do not make use of all of the features of Lever - however I do take part in our candidate interview process for potential hires, and part of our process is to debrief with the other interviewers and formalise our feedback in Lever. I found this process to be fairly straightforward and easy to do. I also like that it is possible to see internal job roles that are open in the business, or to refer people from my network that I think would fit well into roles that the business needs.

    Cons

    As someone who comes in to the app in order to do a very small set of things: Post my comments and hiring recommendations about a potential hire OR browse internal listing to refer someone from my network - the system can feel a little bit crowded with other information. It isn't hard to navigate per se, but it could certainly be more focused on the things that matter to me as a casual user that interacts in order to feed information in to the HR team.

    Great ATS !

    Pros

    I recommend Lever to every Recruiting team out there.

    The ATS was created by developers that understand what Recruiters need and understand how little time we have in our days (the lever chrome extension is such a huge time saver). Managers are not the easiest to convince when it comes to ATS but with Lever and the slack integration it makes it easier to collect feedback without having to chase it.

    The staff is great, I was in touch with Spencer who took all the time I needed to explain all the different functions of Lever and then Otto took over for the implementation and although the timeframe I gave them was super short they were right there with me and I felt supported throughout the whole process (migration from another ATS to Lever and setting up our Lever company account).

    My team is super happy with this choice and I believe they thank me at least once a day (if not more) for picking Lever over other ATS

    Cons

    Can't say that I have any cons right now (i've been using Lever since July 2018 and things have been going smoothly)

    Wrapping up our Lever implementation this week and couldn't be happier! Already so impressed with the functionality and ease of use. The Lever team has been incredibly helpful and made the process of migrating away from Greenhouse so easy. Absolutely recommend.

    Cons

    Tedious to set up - In the long run, it will be worth it to have this level of customization, but there's a ton of work to be done at the onboarding stage that requires dedicated time.

    I did not have anything that stood out to me at this time.

    Pros

    The suite helped free a lot of time that otherwise was consumed by admin tasks, specially when hiring sales teams (where you may hire 4+ at a time). Software is very easy to adopt and use. Can't say it's intuitive so take the proper time to configure workflows and links.

    Cons

    As with all platforms that will work at the core of the business, it requires an initial investment and you will need to train/educate the team that will use the platform thus ensure things run properly. Company local expertise will developed as they use the system.

    Overall I had a very positive experience during the implementation. I worked with Phil Golding who was always professional and knowledgeable although at times as a client we had some unusual requests which even I who has implemented a few of these in corporate entities, were not expecting from stakeholders.

    Pros

    The simplicity and logic behind the tool is great as that is exactly what a hiring process should be, simple! The automation of the tool as well makes the process and experience for both the candidate and the hiring community nice and simple.

    Cons

    When implementing there were some limitations to the code to take the bespoke nature further with our careers site. Although I understand the protection and the team do work closely with the client during an implementation, it would always be helpful to allow more bespoke approaches.

    As we have scaled our hiring, Lever has scaled with us. We can successfully manage 50+ different positions, with different interview structures and employee involvment.

    Pros

    It integrates seamlessly with Gmail and Google calendar, which enables us to successfully schedule interviews and request feedback across the organization.

    Cons

    The search functionality is not always easy. There is a lot of human error involved in tagging candidates and appropriately updating their profiles to ensure we can find them later as needed.

    Pros

    The system has certainly saved me a LOT of admin time, which I appreciate considering we hired 8 people last month and wouldn't have been able to do that otherwise. Easy to get set up and easy to use. Take the time to get set up properly and use the workflows, i.e. easybook links, to maximise time savings.

    Cons

    It's an investment up front and obviously have to train the team to get up and running smoothly, but worth the effort and an intuitive interface.

    We recently moved to Lever from Workable because we needed a more scalable option for our growing company. We have just begun to use the system but integration and the launch have gone very, very smoothly. Leadership is impressed with all of the feature and the nurture campaigns are super helpful and time-saving. I wish we would have found this earlier.

    Pros

    Time-saving for almost everyone on the hiring team. From getting feedback on candidates to general scheduling and communication - I cannot stress enough how streamlined our processes have become now that we have Lever.

    Cons

    There are a few fewer integrations and getting your Jobs posted is a little clunky, but overall easy to get done.
