Reviews of BambooHR
Streamline HR and Boost Productivity with User-Friendly HR Management Tools
Comments: BambooHR is customizable and integrates with other tools and platforms, which allows organizations to tailor the software to their specific needs and connect it with other systems and processes. This is especially helpful for organizations with complex HR needs or those that need to integrate employee data with other business systems.
What stands out about this software is its comprehensive and user-friendly HR management features. BambooHR provides a wide range of tools and functionality for managing employee data, tracking time off, creating reports, and streamlining HR processes, all in a single platform. This makes it a valuable resource for HR professionals and helps to improve efficiency and productivity.
There is nothing that I do not like about this software. It is on the right track however there could be a potential issue where it may not be suitable for organizations with very complex HR needs or those that require a high level of customization. In these cases, a more specialized HR management software may be more suitable.
Great HR System!
Comments: Overall, I love BambooHR. I have implemented it in several companies I have worked for over the years. It is such a great system, I tried to bring it in whenever I had the chance!
BambooHR has everything in one place. Easy to set up and implement and employees can start using it immediately with very little training. Very easy to customize it to suit your company's unique needs. Customer service is second to none!!
Having an integrated payroll system would be the cherry on top but for a Canadian company, this option is not available. A huge market untapped!! The ability to choose a "close" date for the Performance Management Reviews would be very helpful as sometimes a longer or shorter window is required.
Intuitive but improvable human resources software
Comments: Overall I think it's easy to use and the interface is clean and easy to understand. However, there's room for improvement in most of the main features available for employees. At the moment I think there are probably better softwares for HR management (at least form the employee point of view, which is my case)
For employees I'd say it's fairly easy to use. The dashboard is very straightforward and most of the tools I need to use in my day to day (to request vacations, medical visits, etc) are accesible from there and I don't have to spend time searching. They also let you customise different types of days off, which is also nice from the employee's perspective. The calendar is also very nice, I think it's one of my favourite things from the software and the filters works well.
I think the hierarchy of the navigation could be improved. I only have the links "Home" "My info" and "People" and the only way to see any page inside "My info" is entering inside the page. Maybe they could add a dropdown with the pages that appear inside "My info" when you hover over the link in the menu.The cards inside the Dashboard don't link to the actual pages they refer to (when you click over them you expand them, but that's it).The "Upcoming Time Off" list, I don't think it's very intuitive. I'd rather have a calendar or something more visual to be able to understand which day of the week they correspond to (it's not the first time I mess up requesting a day in the calendar because the week starts on Sunday and I haven't realised about until later on). It would be much easier to check if the days I've requested are correct.
Amazing Customer Service, Always Looking to Improve
Comments: Overall we have really benefitted from Bamboo. I think the next big thing for Bamboo would be to offer a scheduling tool within the software. They partner with another company in this as an alternative, but I believe Bamboo could utilize their amazing innovation and forwarding thinking capabilities to create a great scheduling tool.
We love the customer service Bamboo provides. 90% of the time I have someone helping me within 2 minutes. And they always know the answer. If what I am wanting to do is not an option, they push it up the line and a group reviews these requests constantly. Bamboo is always looking to improve their product, which I appreciate and I want to be a part of a company that is always looking forward to the future's possibilities.
Our main issue is with payroll. We would love to utilize it, but you can only have one tax ID. We have multiple tax IDs for multiple locations and employees cross over between them constantly. The work around was for us to have multiple Bamboo accounts to accommodate for the multiple tax IDs. But this is not cost efficient for us.
BambooHR is great!
Comments: Very positive! Their customer support is next level and incredible. HUGE kudos there! Keep making those small improvements.
It's so easy to use and intuitive, it has a great layout and has a variety of features that are incredibly useful in a variety of HR/Payroll features. Customer Support is unparalleled, excellent job to that team! Always helpful as well and I've never been disappointed by their efforts, even if the answer is a "no" to what I want to do.
There are still some features that are clunky (new hire packet, performance management, surveying) and don't have the customization I would like. I do see improvements that happen over time since I've used them though.
