Reviews of BambooHR
BambooHR Turns a Small Business into a Big Business
Comments: I enjoyed it more than other recruiting software I've used. It makes work easier and helps me be a manager instead of a paper pusher.
I personally like that BambooHR has different portals for its users. They've built a database that allows employees to: 1. Maintain their own records (whether the company sends or user uploaded); track time off earned, sick days used, and hours worked; while allowing the user to sign documents easily electronically; and 2. Makes being an HR manager, easy. What I mean is, creating records (employees or temps) and ensuring they have all the blocks checked (background ran, drug test paperwork properly filled out, and any other documentation needing signed) within the timeframe needed to start working - is tracked, maintained, and recorded for you... so all in all, eliminates the monotony of HR and time wasted on paperwork while assisting managers/employees in ensuring proper compliance.
Well, I still had to scan any documents that weren't created or automated through the software and label them. For example, I work at a satellite location; the warehouse I staff for has a basketball court out back for employees to use on their break. I had to create a document that stated employees for my agency had to make sure they were clocked out, that they were responsible for any risk of injury and that the company and staffing agency would not be held liable for any resulting injury that may occur. The rest of the staffing agency didn't need this so I still had to print out 50 copies, have each employee sign one, upload it, file it in the employee file in the software, label it, then give the copy back to the employee. This really is not an issue unless if turnover is high, this could get annoying.
The ATS has been a huge help in the recruitment process
Comments: When it comes to personnel data, Bamboo handles everything. The HR department and upper management benefit greatly from this system's increased efficiency. The convenience of having everything in one place, rather than scattered everywhere.
The HR software is all-encompassing and user-friendly. Administrators and end users alike will appreciate the streamlined UI and pleasant UX they provide. My team has found the platform to be very user-friendly and productive.
It irritates me because any time I make an update to anything, it needs to be approved first, but I don't think this is something that happens everywhere; rather, I think it's more of a company permissions issue.
BmabooHR good for small company but hard to scale
Comments: It's ok
Easy to use as an employee user, good esthetics.
Report is difficult to run, requires manual excel adjustment, hard to create useful dashboard. Performance management module is limited, hard to set up KPIs attached to roles -> goals -> then org goals. 360 feedback is also not customizable. It's fairly hard to use as an administrator, data are contained in a way that's hard to scale up.
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.
One of the right tools for HR work
Comments: Our company uses BambooHR to track employees' time off for vacation, illness, and other reasons. All of our HR records may be conveniently filed away there, too, for instantaneous access by every staff member. The ATS has been a huge help in streamlining our hiring procedures.
BambooHR excels in making its features accessible to a wide range of users. Like how every month brings new features that make my work easier.
There isn't a single feature of this program that I don't enjoy. A new feature that could be helpful is the ability to specify which days of the week a person is "off," so that they do not appear in the calendar at all on those days they are not scheduled to work.
