A great way to share accomplishments with fellow coworkers

I use every week to share accomplishments to the entire team in the region

Pros

Easy to upload and share idea/messages and accomplishments in a new way

Cons

It’s a little basic and doesn’t flow as well as something like Facebook which this is very similar too

Collaborative social platform for Organizations

Overall experience is good for the 4 year period which I have used.

Pros

Yammer brings together employees of different regions together and facilitate sharing, chatting features. More meaningful way of passing messages across different set of people within the organization. Great way of getting the attention of others.

Cons

Integrating into other platforms and getting everyone on-board can be challenging. Some notifications are disturbing. Messaging features are very basic and have some bugs.

Not sure what Microsoft is trying to achieve with Yammer..

Pros

Yammer integrates with our Office 365 subscription so all licensed users have access to it without additional costs.

Cons

It feels like a mash between social media and Sharepoint. It's clunky and hard to learn, and administering it/training team members is a nightmare.

Our official social network

Pros

We use this in our organization, and i think is awesome way to connect to all employees within our organization. the feeds and groups really help us to stay updated and be collaborative. I work with a virtual team and this really helps us post updates and documents on time, it's integration with other Microsoft office products is really good too.

Cons

Customization and personalization could be the way forward, the UI is good, but i would like to control which web part or theme should be applied to my page.

Unnecessary But Useful

Pros

If having an internal social network is something you want, this will get it done. It gives a professional look.

Cons

I mean, you could just use a facebook group, but then your employees are on facebook.

It shows promise, but still feels like it's in constant beta

Pros

It's nice that it integrates into our Office 365 deployment, and user details are automatically populated and connections are made between coworkers. Being able to have different groups/conversation windows allows us to focus conversations on specific services/products.

Cons

I feel like Microsoft rushed Yammer out the door before it was ready to launch. It just seems like there is so much more it should be able to do, but it just doesn't.

Facebook for the Enterprise

We used this for collaboration but now have Slack and Google Docs that does the job for us. Quite nice they are now. Yammer was good in the hey days but now I feel it is time to move on.

Pros

Simple user interface which was more like Facebook so was adapted to easily when we were using it.

Cons

Seems dated now. We have other software applications doing more for us

A great way to share wins with coworkers

I use it to share ideas and company wins inside of a channel specific group. I can tag coworkers across the region or nation and I feel it’s a great way to encourage and boost engagement

Pros

Easy to use, upload pictures and share post with fellow coworkers.

Cons

My biggest complaint is that it feels like a knockoff Facebook that is a few update behind. It is not Avery smooth app. But I believe it will get better in time

Hard to engage with this and feels unnecessary

Pros

There are some excellent features to this. Employers can gain excellent insights to the sentiment of their employees who feel more open to talk frankly. It also gives employees a sense their directors are listening and they have a voice in the companies direction if used well.

Cons

This is a distraction and simply another way to communicate that is unnecessary. It's not simle enough to be useful and functionality not wide enough to help with efficiency.

It's hard to find where conversations start and who can see what.

Pretty good, but maybe not the best

Pros

It's good enough for most basic collaboration and internal communication needs.

Cons

There's nothing I really disliked, but nothing blew me away either.

The experience is more dictated by the organization

Pros

If used properly, Yammer can be a very effective tool for larger organizations

Cons

The difficult thing with enterprise social platforms is that you need people to actually use them . . .

Connect to Coworkers

Useful in the right circumstances.

Pros

It's a good way to allow employees to interact with each other if you have a large or distributed team. The interface is petty familiar and intuitive for anyone who's used any of the major social media platforms.

Cons

It can be hard to get buy in from employees, and this is the kind of tool that only works if people are actually using it.

Yammer Review

Pros

I have used Yammer Web and Mobile App and I can tell that it is good for business and students. I remember creating a group for student opportunity abroad and It really gained a lot of attention 2 years ago. Professional platform and lovely interface.

Cons

I was removed from the platform because I advertised cryptocurrency. I don't know why my account should be restricted and ban

Yammer Review

Overall experience has been very good. I would recommend this tool to my colleagues.

Pros

I use yammer on a daily basis to connect with my colleagues. Features like content tagging and integration with Microsoft office 365 are a big benefit to all the employees. It is a very good tool for collaboration.

Cons

Better searching functionality can help find content faster. The user interface could be a little more interesting. Phone support has been a little difficult in case of questions.
