EchoSpan 360-Degree Feedback Tool

I can't imagine a scenario where it is less appropriate than any other 360 tool. It's easy to use, customizable, and inexpensive. Reports are easy to interpret. Great tool for anyone looking to implement a new 360.

If you want to transform the application journey and the candidate experience, Cornerstone is a great choice and we've certainly benefited by implementing the Recruiting Suite. Application numbers are significantly up, feedback from candidates is all positive, and the onboarding completion rates are at a record high.However, if you are looking to transform your internal processes and introduce efficiencies to existing practices, Cornerstone may not fully deliver. We are finding that often we are taking 2 steps forward and 1 step back. As stated previously, most functionality is good, but with some more flexibility and investment/development for seasonal/bulk 'entry level' recruitment it could be a really great product, and I've no doubt that it would help you to realize the savings you are seeking.

Pros

EchoSpan 360-Degree Feedback Tool

  • Competency library is robust - includes pretty much any competency that you would need
  • Excellent customer service, both online (demonstrations of how to) and via phone/email
  • Completely customizable - different targets can have different competencies, rater types, rating scales, etc.

  • Learning: The learning assignment tool does a great job at both one off assignments and dynamic assignments that can be based on different Organization Units.
  • System: The system is very customizable which is great for allowing it to fit within your organization. It does make it a more complex system to manage that something that is out of the box but if your organization is complex, this is definitely a pro. You can assign custom fields in most places in the system too.
  • System: Security is robust and allows for many different permissions that can be assigned to groups then people can be added to groups either as a person or by an organization unit or by custom fields.
  • Learning: It handles instructor led training very well which is something many other LMS's do not do at all. In our organization we have many of these every year that we need to track for CPE (Continuing Professional Education) purposes.
  • System: Web service (API) or FTP interfaces are available for automating the data flow in and out of Cornerstone.
  • System: Custom Reporting works very well and allows a report writer to create and share reports to users as needed. I use the custom reports 100% over the standard reports to get exactly what I need to the correct users.
  • System: Customizable emails can be configured at the system level as well as at the learning object level or performance task level as needed. It is recommend for easy of administration to utilize the system level as much as possible for any types of future changes (such as logo or wording changes needed).
  • Performance: Performance tasks are very configurable to go out to who you need them do and shut down on a schedule.
  • Performance: The ability to bring in last years goals so you can rate them as well as a next year goal planning is a great feature.
  • System: Online help is very robust and very thorough.
  • Releases: Quarterly releases are very well managed with many details in the release notes and full cycle to complete testing in a Stage system.

Cons

EchoSpan 360-Degree Feedback Tool

  • It would be beneficial if the system automatically reported if an email was returned because of an incorrect address.
Michelle Martfeld profile photo

  • Performance: I would be great if the system would prevent launching an ad-hoc review to yourself. This is the number one support request we have to address, deleting these erroneous reviews.
  • System: In many places, the system could really use the ability to mass edit. For example, you have 25 sessions to adjust a field on, it would be nice to mark each checkbox and then edit in mass. There are lots of administrative pieces that are very click intensive.
  • System: Their community resources need a much better boolean search system. It currently doesn't support using quotes to search phrases or dates to eliminate posts from 2010 which are just no longer relevant. The applies to their Idea forum, without the more complex searches we end up with 50 ideas on the same suggestion instead of 1 idea with all the votes for it tallied on the same suggestion.
  • Performance: If you have custom emails at the performance task level and the task is still active, you cannot edit the email at all. This is especially troublesome on the task for ad-hoc reviews which is ongoing.
  • System: The biggest overall issue I have is with their support ticket system. It can take 30 days to get a response to tickets. They are trying to fix this but so far this is my biggest problem.

As long as pricing stays reasonable, we will likely stay with Cornerstone for at least one more contract renewal. It would be a large task to migrate all of our content to a new system. However, the LMS landscape is diversifying with new startups that are showing some real innovation.

The user interface is clean, polished, and responsive on variety of devices (browser, tablet, phone). It also offers a fair degree of configurability so that both the look and feel of the system and some of the navigation elements can be changed to make adoption easier for end users. The new Learning Landing Page is a terrific step in UX, but some additional configuration around the elements on this screen would make us more apt to enable it in our portal.

Pages do not load quickly. Often times any action or selection of a box, drop down, check, pretty much ANY Javascript interaction causes the whole entire page to load/reload/start doing something in the background. This makes a nightmare for having to mass edit courses or upload ILT sessions. It's the one of the archaic web designs they use that really bugs me as an admin and makes working in the portal at times intolerable and insufferable

Alternatives Considered

EchoSpan 360-Degree Feedback Tool

Both EchoSpan and the other vendor supplied comparable products, so the major difference was the cost involved. EchoSpan is much more affordable and offers a very similar quality of report.
Michelle Martfeld profile photo

Cornerstone OnDemand

Other products were either inferior or too expensive. The one product that was closest to what we needed was Halogen. In the end, our selection of Cornerstone was based on:
  • Breadth of services
  • Overall cost
  • Product functionality and performance
  • Product roadmap and future vision
