It has allowed me to streamline my job ad buying and selling process all in one dashboard.

The whole point of having an ATS is to:
  • Have a place and/or database to store all potential candidates.
  • Reporting functionality - what kind of data and reporting are you able to pull to analyze talent acquisition success?
  • Judge ease of use: no one wants to spend all of their managing a clunky system.
These are the top three areas I'm looking at in determining the right solution.

Pros

  • Makes it easy to manage job feeds.
  • Makes it easy to manage traffic acquisition from multiple publishers.
  • Easy to use reporting dashboard for you and your customers.

  • Analytics were fantastic - It was helpful in telling a story around candidates applied/sourced/interviewed/hired. There was a lot of information that was stored that could be molded and developed - this was helpful in sharing how the talent acquisition was doing to the executive team.
  • Customer Service and tech support was amazing - they were incredibly responsive and helpful. They helped with any custom reports I needed help in building.
  • Great value considering cost. It gets the job done and has the basics you need to be successful.

Cons

  • Need to be more open to suggestions from clients.
  • Need to get better customer service turnaround time.
  • Need more knowledgeable staff.

  • At the time I was using iCIMs, I wish there was a functionality to sync iCIMs with a calendar (e.g. Outlook) to setup interviews. Everything was done separately so each recruiter had to have their own system in tracking when interviews were when, when to schedule follow ups, etc.
  • iCIMS could have a better user interface and overall, user experience. It's a big clunky and old-school in the way that it looks.
  • You have to click through a lot of different options to accomplish a small task. There isn't that intuitive-ness that you find prevalent in, for example, the current ATS I'm using, Greenhouse. If this was fixed, it would save a lot of time on the recruiter's part to recruit vs manage and work through this system.
  • It would be ideal if iCIMs was able to track interviewers and their feedback after interviewing candidates.

Will likely renew. iCIMS continues to improve its functionality and the support is excellent. As long as there pricing model remains competitive then price will not be an issue.

We can think of no dissatisfaction with our daily use of iCims, involving its response time to commands or incompatibility with any other software we presently use.

I have used many ATS systems over my career, including Halogen, Taleo, Sumtotal, and Kenexa 2XR.iCIMS stacks up against all of the above and is above average.iCIMS is not a full blown Taleo product but is getting closer to that full blown product with each new release.Nothing but Halogen can compare to the price of iCIMS. But I think iCIMS gives you more bang for the buck.

iCims is currently pretty good and the best TAS for us at our stage of growth - but further improvement and enhancements will only help make it even better.

  • We really didn't have a viable ATS before. Has allowed company to grow five fold in two years, with national scope.
  • Because of the system integrity, we have been able to accommodate clients with very high security needs (US Treasury, Department of Defense).
  • We have been able to be highly responsive to quick hire needs of several customers nationwide, without sacrificing quality of documentation or HR compliance.
