Pros

I would highly recommend this product. There are a lot of HR systems to choose from but this is one of the easiest I have used. Everyone I have interacted with at Kronos has been very helpful and very friendly! I love the consolidation of information in this program. Everything that you need to know about an employee is in one spot. This was quite the change for our company - we used to have information in various places. Now, by logging into Kronos, I can easily find everything I need. I also enjoy the easy-to-use and easy-to-understand HELP feature.

Pros

It is helping us go paperless, look more professional, easy to find information, really helps me analyze employees pay, and all benefits in one system.

Cons

It would have been great if we could have imported more date and "rules" from WFC. There are a few items that can be improved on and our team has passed them along.

We had an unusually long set up/transition to Kronos that has been delightful as well as challenging. Having been live for just over a year, we are still finding new and exciting ways that Workforce Ready is positively benefiting our company. Thanks!

Pros

Kronos workforce Ready is so much more advanced than our previous dinosaur system. The possibilities for improvement in functionality are very positive. A majority of the support team are extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with.

Cons

There are still many common sense glitches to be corrected/updated. While I do like the Kronos community, certain problems with functionality should be directly prioritized without the recommended submission for review in the community. Ex. the ability for a life insurance beneficiary to be updated at any time.

Implementation was easy and our team was great! Solid support and quick responses from Global Support Team.

Pros

The system is so easy to navigate and to learn as you go. Reporting capabilities are fantastic! Global Support team has been great to work with.

Cons

Benefits module has room to grow - limited features include system not being capable of pro-rating benefits, each benefit plan needs to have a COBRA plan (where applicable) associated with it and that COBRA plan needs to be elected on behalf of the employee in order to send the COBRA info on the EDI correctly versus simply sending the current plans an employee has at the time of termination to the COBRA carrier. It is A LOT of extra, unnecessary work!

I really like Kronos, I would say it is my favorite operating system I have used so far.

Pros

The all in one aspect of Kronos is my favorite thing, it's all in one package. Having the ability to generate endless reports is so very helpful.

Cons

I wish that when running reports you didn't have to expand the search query almost every time. The max may run from 50 to 200 but the original return shows the minimum, say from 10 to 20. I end up expanding almost every report I run. I would like it if they just opened with the max. I think it would save time.

For all the wonderful functionality the software has, it is really a lot for new employees to learn and is a stumbling block. Even new employees that know recruiting well at our firm will really struggle getting up to speed.

We expected the implementation team to give us good solid guidance, best practices etc. It was very disappointing. The TLM consultant made an error that overpaid employees and cost us thousands of dollars. 3 different HR consultants. No knowledge overlap between the modules. Would get bandied back and forth between TLM and HR consultant, instead of having one solid resource

Pros

Fairly intuitive, having dedicated support during implementation is helpful. Once the system is up and running the general functions work well

Cons

report writing is terrible, no ATS, system set up does not make sense in many cases, system too slow for the size of my organization

We are presently involved with Kronos in a billing dispute that has been going on for nearly 2 months so far with no resolution. They had a software glitch which overcharged us and they have been extremely slow in rectifying their error and providing the proper amount of credit. We have asked them several times to address the issue and we are not satisfied with their response. To say that it is disappointing is putting it mildly.

Pros

Kronos has a great conversion process and it is a full function payroll/human resources program. It has all the bells and whistles we wanted and that we didn't have with our existing ADP software plus it allowed us to do our own inputting and payroll preparation. Those were the things that sold us on Kronos.

Cons

Their general ledger interface was very cumbersome for us due to the complexity of our various types of pay systems. Their system is based upon a cost center approach and works well IF you don't have employees are receiving pay from multiple cost centers or have more than one basis of pay. If you want to do cost splitting be prepared to do it by percentage rather than fixed dollar amounts to various general accounts.

Pros

Universal system that has legacy in the market. They have a strong reputation and know their way around HR platforms. Managers and help desk associates are attentive and they do have a process for escalation.

Kronos is trying to get to the cloud and has bolted on products. Support is a struggle for any legacy products.

I think my biggest benefit from Kronos was being able to track time and attendance. My previous system did not do that so it was a great benefit and time saver for the system to do this for me.

Pros

It was an easy to system to train employees on and easy for most people to understand how to use the system.

Cons

One of the main cons of Kronos is the reporting system. I think it was difficult to use. Unless I had the report set up by Kronos it was difficult to set up.

As an IT person the hardware provided by Kronos is always having issues. I have seen this company do more things wrong than right especially from a Customer Service perspective. From 2013 to 2016 they sent out defective parts and expect some people to pay for their replacement services. I would literally go with anyone but Kronos from my personal experiences.

Pros

When it works it works.

Cons

Spending more time and money fixing issues than desired.
