Cornerstone OnDemand

Cornerstone is the #1 Learning Management System for a reason. The Learning Management and Performance Management tools are amazing. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a talent platform. They have room to grow in the recruiting space. I believe that the new tools on the roadmap look promising, however, we ended up removing this tool from our contract and going with another vendor. Cornerstone is not nearly as experienced in the talent acquisition space as it is in talent management.

I could see iCIMS being a great solution for companies of all sizes. I've used it working with companies from a range of 1,200 employees, to over 14,000. I think it's scalable for a large company, but simple enough that a small company without HRIT support could still successfully use it

Pros

Cornerstone OnDemand

  • User friendly and attractive website design.
  • It offers the ability to do online training, or also track face to face, on the job training.
  • It's continuously improving with new features to keep up with the growing demand for online learning.
  • Rather simple admin interface.
Jessica Bussey | TrustRadius Reviewer

iCIMS

  • It's an ATS first- not another HRIS that has their own ATS.
  • The support team is wonderful. They always get back to you and get any questions resolved in a timely manner.
  • The system is user friendly and intuitive. New hiring managers pick up on it quickly.
Misty Granholm | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Cornerstone OnDemand

  • Observation checklists can be tricky to navigate
  • Updating content and how that affects Curriculum/re-versioning
  • Certification management can be frustrating for expired users
  • Removing content for terminated employees could be easier, instead of removing content item by item, would be nice to be able to remove all content from active transcript to removed transcript
Stephanie Dorsey | TrustRadius Reviewer

iCIMS

  • Portal configuration could be more robust, have better creative options for designing your portal welcome page
  • Auto-launch options could more clearly defined, they are difficult to set up.
  • The social distribution could be more configurable as far as the ad content instead of a boring standard template; needs to have the capability to add graphics and images to create attractive ads for social media.

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.

We renewed after our initial 2 year contract. The solution is working well and support has been good. It is nice that the vendor does product updates each year to include new features. Some of these are based on customer suggestions.

Cornerstone OnDemand in general has very good usability. It is easy for end users to start using it. We don`t need to provide any trainings for learners or line managers. At maximum we can create one pager with general information. It is easy to search trainings. You don’t need to know the ID or full name of training.

If you know how to get around iCIMS, it's great. There's so much information just a couple clicks away. You can easily move around, find what you're looking for, make any configurations you need. It's great! If you're new to iCIMS, it can be a pretty steep learning curve. There are *so many* things to do and look at, it can be intimidating. The fact that the main profile types our users most often use look so similar (Person, Job, and Workflow Profiles) can cause some confusion. But once you get the hang of things, the robust functionality is great to have.

There is always ample advance notice before the software goes down for maintenance and this is usually done at off-peak hours. As for system failures - I can't think of any that have effected us in over two years od use.

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

They are still working out issues with their support ticket system. I think we are now experienced enough that when we submit a ticket, there is not a quick easy answer and involves higher levels of support so it does tend to take a LONG time to get assistance. When there is a major issue, their communication is getting better but when you have a defect to report or a high level support it's going to be a while. They do have EXCELLENT online help, a very active online community where customers help customers and great user groups so there is other avenues of help

The iCIMS support team is always helpful and knowledgeable. Additionally, they have the ability to think outside the box and solve issues for us in unique ways. The training offered at iCIMS headquarters is superb and has been invaluable to us being able to use the product at very high levels.

The new update is a great improvement on the old outdated UI, but the UX still lacks some modernized and streamlined flow to it. Clunky UX makes for clunky training.

Alternatives Considered

Cornerstone OnDemand

Cornerstone OnDemand is lightyears ahead of HealthStream. HealthStream's system is archaic and does not have any features besides basic compliance training. HealthStream is not visually appealing and users simply choose to log in and complete only what has been assigned to them. Cornerstone's catalog is so much more user friendly and inviting.
Chelsea Polette, M.A. | TrustRadius Reviewer

We completed an extensive RFP and found that iCIMS delivered the most functionality for the best price. It was easy to implement, the post-implementation support far exceeded the offerings of the other companies, and it provided the robust reporting we needed to ensure we had the data analytics that would drive our spending and candidate experience.

Return on Investment

Cornerstone OnDemand

  • The work my small admin team has done in the past 2 1/2 years, would have cost my company hundreds of thousands of dollars with a 3rd party.
  • Using Cornerstone as an LMS has put our Company on the map for a leader in Learning and Development.
Nina Queen | TrustRadius Reviewer

iCIMS

  • Saves me time on my hiring process. I can go through candidates and compare them to other successful candidates much faster than with a manual hiring process, such as through email. The automated notifications are very important to me.
  • I feel like I get a better pool of candidates, which means better talent and more opportunities for growth for my organization. I don't feel like I'm taking a flyer on someone's niece or nephew. I'm getting the best objective look at all those that apply.
