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.

SuccessFactors Perform and Reward

There is a lot of metrics and different setup functionality for someone who wants a robust/complicated performance review. But dealing with customer service and the other limitations are not worth it.

Pros

  • Organizes agendas for 1:1 meetings. Prior to 15Five, I kept a running list of notes, but I love that 15Five gives you the ability to add talking points to the 1:1 agenda and employees are able to do so as well. As we meet we can mark these off the list as we discuss them.
  • Reminders and email notifications. We have it set up so that a 15Five should be completed weekly. The system automatically sends email reminders as the due date approaches.
  • Ability to track company and team objectives/goals. When adding objectives into the system, you can assign them to a parent objective (company goal) to ensure you are on the right track with your goal setting and that it aligns with the business goals.

  • Workflow can be set up so that approval runs smoothly.
  • Rating reports and anonymity for the 360 review are great.

Cons

  • I wish there was a way to set reoccurring 1:1 meetings. I meet with each of my team members the same day and time each week, however, I have to manually schedule these 1:1 meetings in 15Five rather than being able to have a standing meeting.
  • I wish there was some more customizing available for the structure of objectives. We have Company goals, department goals, team goals, and individual goals but 15Five doesn't give the option to create team goals currently.

  • There is absolutely no customer service. Trying to get a hold of someone is nearly impossible and trying to get the right answer is like pulling teeth.
  • The Admin Center is not very intuitive.
  • As an admin I could not easily access all employee performance reviews. I had to go in and proxy as a manager or as the employee.
  • When someone changed managers, the review would forward along, but the dates would become confusing and it would appear that a new review was necessary.

Halogen had wonderful customer service and was much more user friendly for the administrator.

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!

  • Cost was too high since employees did not use the 360 review or goals.
