Cost effective but powerful ATS

I had heard good things about Newton and they were true. The platform is easy to use for both managers and applicants, and looks modern. On the backend, we are impressed by the level of customization we get for one of the most affordable products on the market.

Pros

I was looking for an ATS that would allow some customization and lots of data reporting. Newton creates a robust database of applicant data that can be sorted and reported in various ways.

Cons

As we reviewed ATS platforms, the one thing I found to be missing was any sort of focus on diversity statistics or goals. Newton will allow us to search and create our own reports for DEI, but doesn't have much ready-made beyond the EEO report.

Great overall product

Great team to work with. I have been happy with our choice to switch from our large ATS to Newton

Pros

The value doesnt dissapoint. I kept waiting for what was missing. So far I have not been dissapointed. Larger systems dont come with state tax forms and change thousands more.

Cons

So far I dont have a con yet. I have liked everything. If you are looking for a large system with HRIS then this isnt for you. You can add on to the sytem.

Excellent applicant tracking solution

Managing hundreds/thousands of job seekers is simplified with Newton. All applicants filter through to one space, and can be seamlessly moved through the next steps with custom email templates, background screen capability (compatible when paired with Sterling). Also can use the unique tracking links to track which job ad sources (ie Facebook, Indeed) are yielding the best results.

Pros

The centralization of all job seekers to one landing place and ease of moving candidates through the hiring process. Unique custom tracking links are a great feature to track analytics.

Cons

I haven't been exposed to any poor experiences using the software

Cuts time in half

Pros

This is very easy to use. It simplifies the recruiting and hiring process. It would take us up to 6 weeks to get from the application process to the hiring process. Now it takes about 3 weeks.

Cons

Some of the inputs are a bit confusing but with practice it gets easier.

Great ATS option for mid-sized companies!

Overall Newton is a great value if you're looking to create recruitment efficiencies with a moderate budget.

Pros

Ease of use, automatic posting feature, easy to organize candidate pipeline and communicate with candidates on their status.

Cons

There aren't many negatives that I can think of. Newton could use better support in configuring the on-boarding functionality.

Recruiter Perspective

Too much money for what you actually get. Cheaper products will do the same thing.

Pros

Easy to use, pretty standard system. Customer support is very responsive with issues that arise.

Cons

Features are not as effective as they could be. Searches are not that simple to perform through old resumes. They tell you to try to trick the job boards.

An excellent ATS solution

Pros

Newton's comprehensiveness makes it very powerful. It simply has all of the functionality that we need from an ATS solution, with plenty of styling options for the job posting pages that it generates.

Cons

Nothing for me personally, but I could see how the admin experience might be more than someone bargained for if they're not especially technically oriented.

Newton Applicant Tracking System has it all

Newton is feature rich. After six months of using the product, I've still only scratched the surface of what it can do.

Pros

The program allows the user to create a job posting from scratch or to modify existing ones. There are numerous templates for job posts or emails that can be used out of the box or can be modified and personalized. Newton has agreements with Indeed, LinkedIn and Glassdoor and job postings can be automatically posted to these sites for free. It also allows for posting directly to the company's employment web site as well as the company's Facebook page. The system allows the poster to create knock-out questions so that interested applicants who don't meet minimum qualifications are automatically excluded and the receive a message instantly why they are not eligible. Another vital function is that, once an applicant shows interest, they can be followed in the system every step along the way. You can track them through phone interviews, face to face interviews, email correspondence, and hire, involving other employees who may need to be involved along the way. One final key point is that, if the company is a customer of Paycor Payroll and HR systems, Newton interacts with those seamlessly and a prospect who is hired in Newton will automatically be transferred to Paycor with all of their information.

Cons

While the system is rich in features, the menus are not intuitive. There can be multiple menus on a page and it can be difficult to navigate to a feature you are looking for. I find myself spending a significant amount of time in the 'Help' section.

Great software for garnering and reviewing applications

Pros

Very easy to organize, receive and track resumes. Can easily contact applicants and make comments and notes for other employees involved in the hiring process. Easy to move applicants up and down the application process within this system.

Cons

Would be nice to order applicants based on qualifications and not just when a resume is received. For instance to have most qualified or interesting candidates appear first .

Newton Fan Forever

I love Newton and am in the process of proposing that we bring it to my new employer (which has never had an ATS and desperately needs one).

Pros

Newton is very user friendly and flexible enough for people who are not tech savvy. As a recruiter working with multiple project managers, I loved working with a system that allowed me to seamlessly move through workflows independently or alongside hiring managers. Newton is always updating its features and thinking about new things to add to the platform. I also love that it works well with your organization's career page, and may also sync with an HRIS. The Gravity App was great feature to use as well at my former organization (lots of fun-loving, competitive staff).

Cons

I didn't experience many challenges with Newton. Occasionally, emails we sent from Newton wouldn't reach candidates (they would end up in spam). To troubleshoot, we just sent things directly from Outlook. We alerted Newton and the problem was fixed pretty quickly.

Pros

love this program. Newton really stood out amongst other ones. Most of my employees enjoyed it and wished it was everywhere.

Cons

Great ATS from both the Recruiter and the Manager side of the business

Pros

Cloud-based ATS that is great for managing recruiter work flow from both the Recruiter desk as well as the Manager side of metrics and such.

Cons

This applicant tracking system is great for small and medium size companies but not as much for large companies.

Human Resources tool easy to use, I love it

Very good application for the management of the candatos and improves the experience in the hiring

Pros

I really like its simplicity and integration with the outlook, its functions for data management of candidates are very useful.

Cons

As for the negative aspects of the application, I do not have much to say. It only occurs to me that the versions for mobile devices are a bit limited.

Use this to track candidates, review their information, and track where candidates are in process

Pros

I like how easy the system is to use to track candidates, interviews, offers, etc. I also like that I can send rejection emails and reminders to complete assessments

Cons

I don't like that the system is not transferable to our EHX and ISolved account. Also I don't like that to have managers in the account they need to be trained, and get access to all candidates.

Good tool for smaller organization

Pros

We have been using this for a couple of months so still learning features. It is low cost and low maintenance though.

Cons

The query functions to find candidates is a little limited. The design can also use some upgrading.

I love Newton!

This system keeps you accountable and organized and identifies where the bottlenecks are in your processes. It also allows for easy to use reporting and keeps by applicant flow data very clean.

Pros

The software was easy to set up and easy to use. There are lots of sample letters that can be customized your company's needs. The Newton software allows us to post our position to our website and to the public at the same time and allows for us create "tracking links" to track the sources we use to advertise.

Cons

you can not save an email to draft if you have to hop off to do something else.
the echo feature is not perfect .

Easy! Quick! Enjoyable!

Pros

Newton is very user friendly and easy to learn/teach new users. The customer support is always helpful and prompt!

Cons

I wish it would integrate with our HRIS system. I wish it was easier to email candidates in bulk. Sometimes there are glitches due to it being a web-based software.

Havent found anything I don't like yet

Ease of onboarding new hires and applicant log.

Pros

Ease of onboarding to Paycor. Has dramatically reduced the amount of time to add new hires and log applicants. Like the reporting style as well.

Cons

duplicate entries should auto link, or not allow a person to apply for the same job in the same 12 months. They should receive an alert that they already applied and can resubmit and update their current application. Also a chance to do this in Spanish, but translate to English words

Very versatile ATS!

Pros

I can communicate and schedule with applicants and hiring managers through Newton. It makes my job easier to have it all in one place.

Cons

My comments disappear, so I can't see them and have to move from one browser to another to find them. Also, applicants pop up that weren't there for more than a week with old dates on their profile, so I don't trust that Newton is giving me the most updated and complete information.

Lots to learn quickly, user friendly, good "Help" tools, and good impact on our organization

less duplication of effort for those that apply multiple times to multiple positions; good tracking and visibility for our hiring teams.

Pros

Better posting reach, customizable for the most part, good support, good tracking and analytics, reasonable tool for our size organization (under 500 employees)

Cons

I do not have much to say in the cons department - usually when I have issues they are addressed or find some workaround
