Excellent features with a well organized clean design. Performance management module works well. Displays up coming trainings, activities and company announcements. Management can see which employees are out, who's got upcoming work and personnel details such as anniversaries and birthdays. Has excellent integrated AT system. Very recommended.

Easy to operate with no issues. Has a deep feature set and extremely user friendly interface. Managers and employees track goals and performance on a daily basis.

I like it but onboarding is a tad expensive.

Pros

Bamboo HR has a very modern and sleek look/feel to it which I highly recommend to organizations which want that kind of ambiance from themselves.

Cons

It has a multitude of features which can come off a bit cumbersome for those employees who prefer simplicity.

Bamboo HR Streamlined our onboarding process

Ease-of-use

Customer Support

Pros

Bamboo was really easy to use from an admin side as well as from the new hire/user perspective. Uploading docs that we previously provided to new hires as hard copies was extremely easy and many of new hires have commented that the on boarding process is much more efficient than what they have experienced at other jobs.

Cons

The only thing that bothers me about Bamboo HR is that its very common for new hires to have issues downloading a specific document. We have not been able to figure out why and it very likely could be user error but its still a bit bothersome.

Pros

I have really enjoyed using BambooHR, since our company introduced the platform to us over a year ago. It has many great features, with one being the tracking of your fellow employees work anniversary date. This tracker has helped increase interdepartmental communication throughout the company, as we all now have the ability to wish somebody we may or may not talk to regularly, a congratulations on a memorable day for them within the company.

Cons

Though there is a way for you to provide feedback on your peers, there is no way for providing feedback on your direct supervisor / manager. Bi-directional feedback is very important, as managers need to receive feedback on their performance from their directs, in order to learn on areas in which they can also improve on their managerial skills.

Overall I would say BambooHR is supporting almost every aspect of HR management. I would say it has streamlined numerous cumbersome processes. I love all the functions of this software.

Pros

BambooHR is the most simple as well user friendly software. It helps us a lot to store and report employee's information. It also let employees in visualizing their personal information and benefit. Its sleek designs are providing much benefit to the companies. Its fascinating features of Applicant Tracking System and On & Off boarding checklists is making this product look even more interesting.

Cons

Although BambooHR software is full of benefits but one of the downsides is that it is difficult to customize. With the rapid advancement I hope its team will overcome this issue and bring improvements in it as soon as possible.

Pros

BambooHR does a crawling of applicants, always bringing the best staff to our company, we publish the vacancy we have and easily we arrange interviews with the best options. We can also pause the publication to resume it whenever we want.

BambooHR saves time and makes it simple for everyone to get the HR related stuff done quickly so they can focus on their actual jobs. The app for both iOS and Android means most functions can also be done on the go. This software is a must have for companies of all sizes.

Pros

After struggling with Excel sheets, time logs, and software reminiscent of Access 97 databases, BambooHR is a dream for people management. With a clean, responsive interface and built-in tutorials, users and administrators can jump in and get up to speed quickly. The marketplace also has tons of integrations for just about every function you can think of. The most convenient feature is how Bamboo streamlines the orientation of new employees. With configurable tasks and documents, Bamboo can track progress and keep signed records eliminating the need for a lot of printing and physical file storage.

Cons

The setting options are both a blessing and a curse. If not configured carefully, you can potentially expose sensitive data to those who shouldn’t have it. Not everyone needs to know how much vacation time the CEO has left.

You can try it but I don't recommend it.

Pros

UI is quite nice, it doesn't take a lot of time to get accustomed to the software. Also, for me it was easy to see what is happening in all recruitment processes at once so from Team Leader position it may be a good software.

Cons

This software is lacking a lot of features to do anything with ease. If you want to do a proper onboarding - additional payment, proper recruitment - buy another ATS, proper HR - additional payment. From Team Leader perspective it was ok to see everything at a glance but my recruiters hated it. Also the software is lacking any real analytics.

HR and admin guys will be thrilled to use this most of the time, so that would mean less cost to maintain other smaller, separate apps.

Pros

Professional-looking HR suite. most of the items an HR would need is here, from job posting, applicants' hiring to their last day at the company. leave accrual policy's can use the standard, though i have yet to figure out where to customize those policies. it is geared more toward U.S. companies, but i believe some customization requests for certain benefits and additional employee information can be requested. tutorial pages are readily available so the HR person will not be so lost in the vastness of the software. a list of available integrations is growing. basic asset management and tracking is also available to work alongside office admin/IT infrastructure guys

Cons

i was looking for a more guided employee setup. Employee account information can also be handy for payslip automation and reporting, but i guess that can be handled by a Comp+Ben software that can be integrated with BambooHR. Email alerts are also limited, so no templates of HR memos/notices and reminders are available, or this feature might be outside the standard package.
