Pros

I would create job postings with Bullhorn and share on LinkedIn to avoid the fees associated with posting using LinkedIn jobs. It was relatively straightforward.

Cons

The last attempt I made to use the platform, I noticed you could no longer create job postings for free. I didn't think it was worth it to pay for the services when I could just use Indeed for free.

Pros

It has a slick email integration which does help when replying to candidates and clients. Easy to see candidates.

Cons

Poor customer service
Over priced
Integration into the website is poor - takes an age for our jobs page to load up. Have given it to several different webdevelopers and all cite Bullhorn as being the issue.
Not really malleable unless you are willing to pay for it.

If your needs are straightforward and budget is not an issue, the Bullhorn is likely to make sense for your company.

Pros

Bullhorn is definitely a Grade A system, that's clear. It is reliable, and functionality is robust, as far as candidate funnel and reporting too.

Cons

The cons for Bullhorn are that a) it is expensive and b) it is not at all malleable unless you pay for a higher tier. Bullhorn is not the kind of system where you can just go around changing field names and colors and such - you do things their way.

Pros

Nothing nice to say here. The API integrations don't actually work and customer service representatives just want you to sign that contract. Do not have the customers best interest in mind.

Cons

I'm a small business owner and thought this would be the perfect software to support my needs. I was sold on a product that does not do what I was told it would do for me. The customer experience is unprofessional and one of the worst experiences I've ever had.

I would definately get a demo from Bullhorn before you finally decide on a vendor. These guys have a really good product backed with years of experience.

Pros

Bullhorn has been around for while and used by many sound companies which should speak for itself.

Besides being really good, sound and trusted recruiting tech company they have always continued to improve and build even better technology. They put great effort into providing solutions to complex recruiting problems. Bullhorn manages all recruiting from requisition to hire in a user friendly manner. Some really good features,
1. Easy Job posting to channels like LinkedIn, job boards, Indeed and social media
2. Quickly screen and filter irrelevant candidates
3. great reporting and dashboards

Cons

From a features perspective there are not downsides, pricing might be a problem from smaller companies though

Would reccomed this product due to the simplicity of the CRM system. Has everything you need to be able to track your candidates and clients as a Recruiter.

Pros

Great for tracking and keeping a record of your candidates and clients. Also can get an overview display of where you are in relation to your targets on one screen.

Cons

Could integrate more matketing and sales tools like HubSpot.

Also can be effort to drag CVs onto the CRM system.

Pros

Easy to use, great search feature, powerful reporting, integrates well with several multi-posters.

Cons

Configuration leaves a bit to be desired; rearranging the field mappings is clunky and more time-consuming than it should be. Logging in is a pain, often you'll have to enter your login details twice to get in unless you're using it in a private-browsing window.

Pros

Easy parsing of cvs to reduce manually entering details
Some useful drop down menus which you can customise
Handy side menu tabs to keep track of who you need to contact
Some good main features and easy enough to navigate
Helpful videos to teach you how to use basics on Bullhorn

Cons

User experience could be streamlined with less unnecessary clicking
Customer service is poor in Sydney as it's a US based software, prefer JobAdder though they need some improvements also
Placements should either be marked in a different colour or shown in the notes
Must be an easier way to find posted ads without clicking into every role
Just so many areas to streamline
Tends to slow down so badly around 3pm everyday

Value for Money

Not suitable for small business

Pros

Good customer service support. Quick to respond
Good looking interface
Well marketed product (price of the product maybe attributed more to their marketing than innovations in the product itself)

Cons

Barely any significant innovations to the system over the last two years. Not worth price
Most of the innovation happens through 3rd party integrations which cost a bomb and you are already paying an arm and leg for Bullhorn itself
The billing team is incompetent. Billed me several times for the wrong
Poor branded candidate report function (seems like they have not invested in innovating this for years)
Don't sign a contract that doesn't give you the option to cancel yearly or anytime. They will make sure they get every penny out of you. No empathy to customers, no flexibility in the contracts. Also they will withhold your final backup data if the contractual obligations are not met.

I have used Bullhorn for 2 years in my previous company and had good experience with it. It reduces the effort of manually entering details of the applicants, resume parsing feature is pretty cool. Email integrations are effective and easy which makes easier to communicate with the applicants. Job posting to social media and job boards are pretty simple and easy. I still recommend this to others.

Cons

I think pricing is on a higher end. Other than that I think its really a good ATS.
