Free up your HR Department to do their best work

Due to implementing BambooHR, we moved from having 8-10 spreadsheets that required daily maintenance to being able to have one system of record. This has allowed us to onboard employees more seamlessly during the COVID-19 pandemic. We went from PDF time off request forms and a Google Out of the Office calendar that we had to manually maintain to using time off in BambooHR and implementing the iCal feeds so everyone knows who is out of the office at a glance.

Pros

Getting employee buy in and adoption is easy due to how intuitive the end-user experience is with BambooHR, especially with Google Single Sign On. As the administrator, I have the ability to make changes and implement things quickly on the backend without having to make a request and wait for someone else to make the changes for me. Having a streamlined and consistent onboarding and offboarding process ensures that new hires are set up for success and offboarding employees accounts and data are turned off in a timely manner.

Cons

BambooHR may not have as many robust features as some of the other HRIS out there, but they are always adding new features and making improvements, which is good to see. You may have to add some app integrations in areas like recruiting and benefits administration, if you want all the bells and whistles.

Easy HRIS Tool for Small-Mid Size Companies

Pros

This software is very easy to customize to your organization's individual needs - especially if you are a start-up or small scale-up business. BambooHR also integrates with a lot of tools making the value skyrocket. It's also visually extremely easy to use and set up, and running reports is simple and fast.

Cons

We're moving into being a bigger size company which is complicated our workflow and the number of tools/integrations that we have set up with it. We're having to do a lot of different customization which means it's adding a layer of complication to our daily jobs.

We now need something a little bit more robust. It would also be ideal to have different access level permissions as different people in the HR Team need to have specific access to data and information, while others don't.

A Solid HRIS System

My overall experience with BambooHR is great. I would recommend it to smaller mid size firms looking for a solution to manage the employee experience from applying to a job right through to leaving the company.

Pros

Bamboo is very easy to use and the Support is great. They always try to find a solution/workaround within the tool to help you accomplish your ask. The employees enjoy using it and find the interface engaging and fun.

Cons

I send in lots of suggestions on how to improve the features of BambooHR. BambooHR seems to focus on ones that I find no value in for the most part. Reporting, Request Signature, and the File section need greater focus.

Amazing & Customizable HR Platform to Meet All Your Organization's Needs

Working with BambooHR has been fantastic, and they continue to meet our needs. We are so happy with the decision to implement the platform that we transition our Time Tracking and Payroll over from ADP. We love their focus on continuous improvement and their outstanding customer service.

Pros

The platform is highly customizable. BambooHR has an outstanding customer service team. They continuously look to improve and add additional features to include a COVID-19 tab, employee satisfaction survey, Reporting, employee well-being survey, 360 performance reviews through adding the feedback functions and more. I love their monthly pulse survey and their webinars that educate administrators on how to meet employees needs.

Cons

Not being able to include the Executive Director/CEO in the Feedback Assessment process for performance management.
