Easy to Use HRIS

5.0 2 months ago New

Comments: I love Bamboo! Very happy with it, and excited to see what the future holds.

Pros:

The product is very easy to use. The customer support is incredible. The system is aesthetically pleasing. Bamboo listens to feedback and is always updating and releasing new features based on customer feedback.

Cons:

Some features are not the most robust. Time tracking and reporting specifically. Bamboo does not have built-in scheduling. The employee notes feature could be more like applicant notes (replies, attachments, email notifications).

Great HR/employee tracking for small businesses

5.0 4 weeks ago New

Comments: Excellent experience and great customer support.

Pros:

Software was easy to implement and was a seamless process getting data in. Excellent features to manage employees effectively and efficiently.

Cons:

You need to purchase modules as you need. Should have packages with modules already packaged for the consumer.

Great HRIS For Start-ups!

4.0 3 months ago

Comments: I haven't had any negative remarks from employees or managers about BambooHR; I think it excels in almost every category for an HRIS.

Pros:

BambooHR has a great user interface, robust integrations, a wonderfully designed time tracking tool, and their payroll is reliable and easy to work with!

Cons:

I think BambooHR falls short with some of their HR compliance stuff, which has recently become more complex.

Excellent option for an all-in-one HR solution

4.0 3 weeks ago New

Pros:

My favorite part is the org chart - I use this daily to figure out where people fall within the organization. A close second are the vacation calendar and birthday / anniversary notifications. The vacation calendar makes it easy to see all the planned vacation for your team. There are other nice personal touches like being able to schedule reminders for check-ins. Authentication via your favorite SSO is also very simple.

Cons:

The review system isn't configurable to match our current review process. Ideally you should be able to configure the entire review process workflow. I also didn't find the recruitment tools to be robust enough, they were fairly generic and did not fulfill our requirements. Compared to other tools which can configure the review process flow and involve other collaborators, Bamboo HR was lacking.
