The think I love most about Lever is how we are able to customize everything to make it best work for us. The support team is amazing. Rep has been a great resource. She walked us through the platform, responds quickly to all my questions and makes sure we are using all the great features Lever has to offer. He thoroughness and patience is amazing and appreciated. She also offers great tips and advice to make sure we are receiving all the benefits available to us.

Cons

More included job board integrations! We need better results and would love to have our postings go out to more job boards (included without having to pay more money.)

Our CSM is very responsive and is always down for a video call!

Pros

I used to use Jobscience, which was confusing and pretty ugly. Lever is a lot more intuitive, and even when I don't know how to do something I can easily search the support guides or find out by myself by playing around. I also like how it integrates with so many other softwares, which makes the recruiting process more seamless and connected.

Cons

I feel like creating reports can get confusing. There were times I wanted to create reports to highlight certain things, but found that I was unable to do so. It would be nice to be able to put any variables against each other to track progress across all reqs. I tried to extract data on feedback forms and the data I got was too messy and hard to read.

Lever's been great, and the support team is always super helpful! Thank you!

Pros

- Easy to organize
- Easy to use
- Functional
- Easy to correspond with candidates, but also easy to communicate with manager in the tool

Cons

- Wish reporting focused on the reqs vs. the postings. It makes it very inaccurate for us and a lot of extra legwork on our side to determine our recruiters numbers / time to fills / actual openings /etc.
- It's annoying to send offer letters in lever. So easy if EVERYTHING aligns, however, recruiting is so dynamic start dates are constantly changing, salary negotiations, sign by dates change - this becomes bulky and we have to re-submit the whole offer (since our executive team approves - this has lead to some confusion and we start to operate outside of lever, which I don't like)

Lever Needs Recruiter Insight

I would highly recommend doing focus groups or some random sampling with recruiters to understand how interview processes work and why customers are struggling with the system.

Pros

Lever is user-friendly, visually pleasing and has some unique and helpful features for recruiting. The referral feature has been one of our favorite things! Customer service has also been a great experience.

Cons

It's very obvious that the program wasn't created by recruiters. There are a lot of features/updates that aren't super important in sourcing and recruiting but the basic functions have complicated interfaces and there's issues that make tracking applications and candidates very difficult.

Value for Money

Solid tool with outstanding customer support.

Pros

Even without any previous training, Lever is a fairly intuitive tool to pick up. Their customer support is reliable and responsive- from customer success managers and implementation consultants to the sales/renewal reps. I have enjoyed partnering with all of them. They are helpful, great at problem solving, and are very open to feature requests. Lever’s “Easy Book” links works just like Calendly, so candidates can choose an interview time that works best for them. Lever Nurture Campaigns (email campaigns that automatically escalate to be sent from different people at the company) work really well, assuming you have email addresses of candidates to send it to.

Cons

We use Google everything at my company and scheduling interviews can be a pain. Lever pushes interviews to Google Calendar but we cannot see if interviewers accept the meeting invites in Lever. You have to go into each Google Calendar meeting invite to check. It’s also a pain to copy and

Reporting is just ok; I know there is a separate reporting module that can be purchased but the standard reports could be better. This also relies on clean data from the recruiting team, I.e. recruiters have to be diligent about pushing candidates into the next “recruiting stage”, otherwise interviews can be scheduled and logged in the wrong stage of the pipeline. This also allows for false positives when candidates fall out of the process and don’t complete interviews that were originally scheduled.

Overall, I’m pleased that we made the transition.

Pros

Both the candidate experience exponentially improved and the hiring managers love being in the system and having access to potential hires. On the recruitment side : Lever is pretty intuitive. Functionality and features are similar to social media sites you’re likely already using. The turn around time for implementation was pretty impressive given the nature of our organization’s federated model. The team is helpful and accessible throughout implementation. Transitioning into support was bitter sweet but the team has been just as great. The system doesn’t have everything we want but the Lever team does make a concerted effort to solution with us on other options or discussing whether it can be put on the road map.

Cons

Reporting could use some enhancements. We have multiple instances that we had created for our organization but there isn’t a way that allows for insight into all of them from a macro perspective.

Pros

We like the ease of use, logical and clean interface both for the candidates and internal professionals. We also are extremely happy with the ability to keep track and analyze our processes. As we are dispersed over 25 countries, Lever makes collecting data simple and straightforward. The scheduling function has been greeted with enthusiasm and we believe we have saved quite a lot of time through this functionality. Lever enables us to have a clear picture of the whole process starting with creating the requisition and ending with offer making - we can actually see our shortcomings and things we do well. Previously we were struggling with getting feedback on candidates from the interviewers and Lever has made it extremely easy to share it as it also reminds you of the need to do this. Customer support is helpful and quick and we feel all our thoughts or suggestions are taken seriously. We are also happy to see that our referral system continued to work in Lever and now the referrers can actually check the status of the referee - this is a great tool.

Cons

We can't customize everything! Or was it a good thing? Initially we had problems setting up user groups with correct access rights as we were not 100% sure of the exact rights (although these were described in Lever in detail), we gained the security through experiencing - that was the best option.

Ease-of-use

Customer Support

Value for Money

Pros

We have used Lever for over 2 years, rolled out in countries across and globe and trained hundreds of hiring managers to use the system for feedback and reviewing applications. We initially chose Lever for its data and analytics, which have allowed us to automate reports and KPIs for teams in all our markets. The system is user friendly, and tools like Lever Nurture and Recommendations can help recruitment teams to find and attract more talent.

Perhaps the best thing about choosing Lever is the team behind it. The system itself has rolled out many new features (requisitions, approval flows, restricting access to view sensitive information) after carefully considering feedback and suggestions, which are critical for scaling and management for large orgs. The support team is incredibly responsive to any issue and the product team is open to feedback and as transparent as possible about upcoming changes.

The customer success team really goes above and beyond to understand and work through client concerns and helps to find innovative solutions to most issues. If you choose Lever and are lucky enough to work with rep - you've struck gold. I don't think I've worked with someone more focused on client satisfaction, able to make tough discussions enjoyable, and who really advocates for his clients.

Cons

While Lever is growing rapidly and adopting more large global clients, there still seems to be a dominance of focus on US tech startups - for example in the Partner Integrations or in offer templates (multiple options for equity and vesting options) but complex package structures can require significant customisations, which can require additional work for enterprise clients.

The biggest hurdle to adopting Lever as a global enterprise solution has been concerns around data privacy of candidates and employees as it stores all data only on servers in the US. From a security standpoint, this is worrying, has made it harder to get buy in to roll out in other markets, and delayed several implementations. If you want to consider candidates outside the US, particularly in Europe and Emerging markets, it means significantly more time and checks with Legal, Compliance, and Security departments. There is also the fair concern that non US candidates may be discouraged from sharing their data if wary of surveillance and privacy rights - which are major concerns and considerations in other markets. Investing in data centres in locations that focus on protecting data privacy would make it easier (and safer) to roll out and use as a true enterprise tool.

Time savings, scalable across teams, forcing function for HR process and data.

Pros

I really like the ability to track pipelines, feedback, and metrics across the company. This data centric approach is a huge time savings and probably a better way to recruit than the "old way". I was somewhat skeptical starting off as we were getting swamped by our applicant pipeline (just raised a large VC round and needed to expand fast), but Lever had thought about all this and had great solutions. The implementation support was superb, and really got us over the hurdle of onboarding and becoming quickly productive.

Cons

We are early in using it, but right now the biggest con is probably still need to pay for job posts (ie on LinkedIN) or spend time sourcing candidates-- so from a cost perspective, it's not a replacement for these other things. I suspect for companies that have a more relaxed hiring pace, it may not be worth the cost of paying for Lever.

This was an easy survey tool to use.

Pros

Lever is an intuitive tool. The flow of work is thoughtful. I was able to self-teach my way through the tool and my hiring managers are also fluent in the tool with minimal effort. Lever enables me to be a great business partner to my hiring managers and to support finance and our business. I have had a team of 8+ and made a career switch and am supporting talent solo - it really enables me to use my time well. The scheduling feature is quick and easy for large interview panels. The tool to open phone screens with blocks of times saves me hours in scheduling. It's a live tool - anything I add it updated automatically. Lever gives you the ability to have contagious transparency with your hiring manager and other team members.
This tool has all the features I need. It's priced very well in the market. Lever integrates with my other top partners.
The support I have received from Lever is also like no other. Kudos to you, Lever.

Cons

So far the only thing on my 'wish' list is when we have pre-qualifying questions that if someone answers 'no' to something we need to be a 'yes' that it would send an automatic email. My support team takes this feedback and looks to incorporate it into their future roll-outs for the tool. Which I love... my voice is heard as a customer.

The implementation specialist that we were set up was great and his trainings were useful and very efficient, given how much info he had to cover. I love the automated email scheduling and the integration with GCal and Gmail.

Cons

The fact that I can't customize the funnel per job has kind of been a mental hurdle for our executive staff to get over. While I can understand the position Lever takes on this, I have had to explain and belabor this point to people in my org many times. It's pretty much the only pain point though!

Pros

Integration was planned step by step, exceptional customer support and service, updated documentation and 'help' articles, efficient tools and modern interface, stable, out of the box experience is great with room for lots of customization, gmail integration, google analytics integration, chrome extension for recruiting

Cons

Mandatory training sessions for all members of the team, rather than just the admin and recruiter. Had some hiccups with the chrome extension, but they were fixed. Must ask Lever for your EEO data. Making sure you use locations that match job boards.

Pros

Lever is a fantastic platform, and has helped our team tremendously with making hiring decisions and streamlining our processes. Lever has a super intuitive design (pipeline visibility is very clear at a distance), it integrates well with our other platforms, and it's built to support recruiting at every stage of the process. I love the customizability of the feedback forms, and scheduling is super easy as well. I've also really appreciated the customer service and overall implementation support I've received with Lever; their team is super helpful and I've always had my questions answered quickly.

Cons

It's a little pricey, but it's also a fairly powerful tool and the price is mostly justified. There are some parts of the software that aren't totally customizable upfront (pipeline stages, parts of feedback forms), but there's pretty good reasons why that isn't the case, and the customer support team can help with those fixes. There's some functionality that still needs to be developed, but I can only see the software improving over time.

Save time, improve hiring process, better communication with hiring managers, structured and automated process

Pros

- Super easy to use
- Implementation was very structured and I could do it any time
- Hiring managers are in love with it
- I don't have to "stalk " HM for feedback anymore - Lever does it for me
- Reporting is so advanced I can play with it a whole day! Also, I don't have to explain myself anymore to HM - I just need to show them a report and they can fill in the gaps ;)
- Automation...

Cons

- I had to build our jobs page myself
- In order to have good quality reporting I can't customize interview pipelines per job

It's a very intuitive program to use, and it's helpful to keep everyone on the same page about potential hires.

Cons

This software is a little expensive, and it would be useful if there was a mobile app. Otherwise I'm fine with this program.

Applicant tracking, organization, clear communication, and collaborative screening.

Pros

I like the ability to delay email responses and I like the options to customize the entire process. E-mail templates, feedback forms, applications, and the integrations are all great.

Cons

The new features need work. Easy-book doesn't allow for total control of scheduling. Offer letter creation is quite complicated and involves a lot of work if your offers are complex and different each time. Lastly, not everyone is a fan of the interface.
