    I appreciate the training provided to me, as I am a new administrator and the training is interesting and useful.

    Pros

    I like the reports that can be created. They are easy to create, and are very useful in evaluating performance and providing performance bonuses.

    Cons

    I think it can be more user friendly and engaging for our employees. Some of our employees get confused about how to include goals and write self-evaluations, so a guide for employees would be beneficial.

    Mobile platform integration would be big value add

    Pros

    Good platform for hosting Learning and Development for organizations who want to up skill their workforce

    Cons

    There are certainly room for improvements in terms of SSO - Single Sign on feature and seamless integration with IAM - Identity Access and Management, also can look for some content acceleration technologies to throttle content for better and faster delivery across different form factors and Mobile platform integration would be big value add

    The functionality of the software is incredible. It has been easy to implement and use for our managers and employees. It has transformed our organization's philosophy and execution of 1:1's, goal setting, performance processes and learning.

    Cons

    Setting up processes on the admin side isn't terribly intuitive. Most modules are customizable, but a few areas are not and I really wish they were. (Development Plans in particular).

    Pros

    The ability to customize processes and forms to do exactly what you need them to do has been great. We're able to direct employees to one place for performance reviews, goal setting, policy sign offs, compensation increases (if they're managers), etc. This keeps us from having to train employees on multiple systems and gives them the ability to self direct to the things they need.

    Cons

    The administration side of the learning module is clunky and outdated. They done great updates over the past year to make the user side of the software look sleek and current. I hope they will update the back end soon!

    Details carryover from one year to next, can capture info from co-workers and peers, and allows for multiple performance raters.

    Cons

    It takes an extremely long amount of time to set up the process when a change is needed prior to being launched. Also, the "document" appears as if an actual document, not a software piece. It looks clunky when filling out.

    All around performance managment and the bonus of job descriptions.

    Pros

    Their talent management suite is the best I have seen anywhere. Not only it is comprehensive but it is easy to use and to administrate. Whenever you can't figure something out the support team is out of this world and will do what it takes to assist you in the mean time give you a work around if needed. The system is also easy to customize to design and complete other processes that reduce the use of paper and improve efficiency. I am thinking of things monthly to add to Halogen to streamline our HR processes.
    Anything related to performance they have thought of it all. If not, I guarantee you they are working on in to launch in a new version.

    Cons

    The way the licenses are structured it can be expensive if you have a high turnover. Licenses are not replaceable.
    The other thing is that you do get a discount to add some other products to your talent management suite, but some of them can be kind of pricey.

    It is an LMS, so we are able to host courses on it.

    Pros

    It has a lot of functionalities and uses that we were really excited to use at our company. You can create learning paths, job title paths, and other powerful tools like that.

    Cons

    Where do I begin? The software was completely un-intuitive and lacked BASIC functionalities that should exist for an LMS. Rep's support team (outsourced from India, seems like) did not know as much as our IT guy knew about it who had been on the job for 3 months. We had very low adoption because of it being clunky and not user-friendly, and not very customize-able. Do not even do an RFP on this because the sales team is AMAZING and will dazzle you.

    Pros

    Being able to create an organizational flow chart allows you to not only view your chain of command but quickly and easily look up contact information for any person in your organization and within a given department. Adding photos allows you to put a face with a name when working with remote offices and areas.

    Cons

    The learning management system is sometime finicky. If you start an assigned training task from one location on your home screen, it doesn't always come off of your assigned task list- the administrator has to remove it manually.

    I like being able to connect my yearly personal goals to my department's and organization's. The notification system is also useful for when deadlines approach - I get an email any time something needs to be completed.

    Cons

    This software assumes you have a poor relationship with your supervisor, and is not flexible for different leadership styles. My department has to jump through a lot of unnecessary hoops to meet the requirements set by our HR department because other departments have issues. Additionally, it is not very user friendly. It isn't difficult to navigate, but it takes too many clicks to get from one thing to the other.

    Cons

    Learning curve may be a little steep for those who aren't tech savvy. It does take a lot of time commitment to implement and receive training.
