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.

Talentsoft

I think some of my problems with Talentsoft aren't so much the fault of the software as it is how my company is organized. I have to enter many different property levels so that a review gets created, I'm not certain that these fields are required by Talentsoft or by my corporate office. This software is not suited for companies where a segment of the employees do not have a company email address and/or access to a company computer

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

Talentsoft

  • Having the reviews in Talentsoft makes it much easier for one person to manage the entire process from start to finish.
  • When an employee switches managers during the year, the delegation feature makes it very easy to have the previous manager add their input to the employees review.
  • Being able to have a daily import file from our HR system into Talentsoft helps in having the information in Talentsoft be current.
Richard Kutschera | 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

Talentsoft

  • I would like to have access edit and update the goal section throughout the year, not just during the review period.
  • The reporting function is very cumbersome and needs to have easier ways to create custom reports.
  • Streamline the create a review template process.
  • Email notification for employees to let their manager know when they have completed entering information in Talentsoft.

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.

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.

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

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

I think SuccessFactors is more flexible to customer needs when creating review templates and allowing access to goals year round. They also track changes for the goals. Talentsoft was selected by our corporate office before I started with the company.

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

Talentsoft

  • Positive - Managers and employees have access to their reviews without having to contact HR.
  • Positive - Management of the entire review process is less manual and takes less time.
