15Five

I think 15Five is well suited for any organization but especially well suited for larger teams and/or teams that are in various geographical locations. For small teams that work closely together on a daily basis, the user may not see the same returns since there would be ample opportunity for communication.

Carta (formerly eShares)

Carta has been sufficient so far. It seems pretty easy to use and our team has very little problems thus far. I would like to see an improved live chat response time. I'm still waiting for a response. Regardless, the experience has been satisfactory. Vesting schedules appear to be working properly.

Pros

  • Flexibility to set your questions by company/team/individual.
  • It is a weekly reporting platform that also has the functionality to do end of year reviews. Having continuity makes the end of year process much more streamlined.
  • Allows individuals to set, report and record progress on weekly goals. These users can then go back later and review these goals and progress throughout the year.

Cons

  • The interface to set up the question frequency is a bit confusing.
  • The 360-degree review functionality is relatively new so there are still some kinks to work out on this part of the product.

  • Their live chat team takes a while to respond. They could improve their response times.
  • Their support team is okay...

  • It has also allowed us to streamline our review process, making everybody's life easier!
