15Five

15Five is well suited for businesses/groups that are transparent, and willing to share information. If an organization was not a place where information is freely shared, it would not be helpful. Although, it could improve the level of transparency, as members of the organization could have space where they feel comfortable to share information. There are several different privacy settings within the each 15Five, so users can choose what they want to share. Also, it's best to make sure you/your organization has the time to use 15Five. It can be time-consuming for users, but also for those reviewing employees 15Five. It can be a lot of information to sift through. However, the layout of the software is easy to engage with and digest, which is helpful! Additionally, it's important to share with the team how 15Five works, and why it's being utilized. Depending on the questions that are set up within the software, it would seem a bit invasive to some. However, if a clear expectation is set prior to use 15Five, this may not be an issue.

Reviewsnap

Quick adaption came from the ease of use and that is why I would recommend it. If you need more robust cascading goal capabilities you might have to work at it

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.
  • Their support team is very responsive and resolve issues quickly.
  • ReviewSnap is easy to use and saves us tons of time.
  • By having all the information in ReviewSnap we are able to do some great analysis work.

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.
  • If you have more than one type of goals, many users get stuck with the progression of the review process to rate one type and then get to the next type. It is a small plus symbol to view the next set of goals that is easily missed.
  • Cascading goals are not truly cascading. It would be nice to be able to add additional levels of goals. Currently we can only do Organizational, Department, job title and individual. We would like to have a Business Unit between Organizational and Department

Return on Investment

  • 15Five is one of my favorite tools. It has allowed us to keep track of the general morale of the business and to address small issues before they became large issues
  • It has also allowed us to streamline our review process, making everybody's life easier!
  • It's saved us a lot of paper and confusion. We used to use a lot of paper to track reviews from all over the organization. Now we use Reviewsnap to keep track of reviews and to use old reviews as reference when discussing goals.
  • The cloud-based system is great due to the fact that we have satellite offices around the US. You can even do a review from Alaska if required.
  • Initially the customer service was great and responsive during deployment. Once the deployment was complete, the HR director reported having a hard time contacting support.
