Culture Amp

Culture Amp is a great tool for employee surveys, and has been able to scale with us for 5+ years. It's customizable and helps provide rich data on how employees are feeling so that we can continue to use that feedback to improving our company culture quarter over quarter.

Paycor is great for small and medium-sized businesses that have grown to a point where they would like to manage payroll and HR internally. It helps make the transition easy. They have great customer support and onboarding to make the transition smooth

Pros

Culture Amp

  • The Culture Amp support team is unparalleled. They offer live chat support as well as office hours that you can attend for help on anything from technical issues to the best way to phrase a survey question. They are always willing to help and are experts in their field.
  • The report pages are very detailed and it's easy to view the data in a lot of different ways. This helps with more insightful analysis.
  • I love that you can benchmark your survey results to your industry/region; it helps a lot to give context to your results.

  • Their payroll and HRIS system is very easy to learn
  • The applicant tracking system is easy to use and has a lot of neat features
  • The mobile app is easy
  • Their system is able to handle our weird vacation system
  • Their assistance with writing new and updating handbooks was very easy to use

Cons

Culture Amp

  • They recently launched a text analytics feature but I think it still needs some work. I don't find the attributes of sentiment to comments to make complete sense. Text analytics are also not yet available for export so it makes it very difficult to share with others in presentations and reports outside of the system.
  • Currently they don't have the ability to set an automated file with and connect with an HRIS (at least not with Ultimate) so every time you want to refresh your users you have to upload a new file feed manually (which is pretty simple, it is just impossible to set the refresh on autopilot).

Paycor

  • Some of the advanced features of their portal are a bit too complex for a non-financial person like me. I'm sure the CPAs love them, but they can be over my head.
  • They don't have a local presence in my area. Sometimes it would be nice to put a face to the service, but it hasn't really been a problem for me.
  • Not a lot of one-on-one communication between the person overseeing my account. I would have liked to at least meet the person by phone, even though I'm a very small customer to them.

The product is really good overall. The customer service is not the best and the benefits administration is kind of painful. However, the good outweighs the bad. We might get a different benefit admin system that can be integrated into Paycor. My controller doesn't want to switch anything for a [long] time.

I have supervisors and employees at all levels of technical knowledge. Nobody has had any issues with PayCor. Losing passwords is the biggest issue I have with employees. They all use it, and they all understand it. Minimal training required. It is just an easy software to use.

I'd give a zero if that were an option. I currently have multiple requests for support that have not been answered in over a week. I have called their support phone line and usually hung up after waiting for 45 minutes for someone to answer. It is unlikely to get a quick response, EVER, even to urgent problems that effect taxes and benefit submission.

Implementation of any new software is going to be challenging, especially if you are maintaining an existing program concurrently. When it is time for dual-processing (both old and new software) prior to going live, be prepared to be stressed. But trust the process and it will be over soon.

Alternatives Considered

Culture Amp

Culture Amp is the first such tool I have used. I find it to be very well rounded and useful, especially since culture is one of the trickiest parts of a business to get a hold of as related to the bottom line. The fact that followup on goals and feedback can be done thanks to the platform is a very strong point.

Paycor

Paycor offers far more personalized support to users and customers than the previous systems. In comparison, I felt like a number and the customer service was awful; the people you spoke with seemed just as miserable to work there as you were having to call them. Paycor's team is always upbeat, energetic, and happy to help. Paycor cares about updating their system to meet the needs of customers. With the others, it felt like they made updates to just suit what they wanted out of their system regardless of their customers. ADP was unnecessarily overly complicated; our employees struggled with the ESS, our HR team had so many challenges they were on the phone constantly with ADP and ADP's own staff struggled to use their system and were constantly putting us on hold or transferring us to find someone more knowledgeable. With Paycor, we have a specific contact for each product and that individual is highly knowledgeable about that product and gets us the response we need quickly and accurately.

Return on Investment

Culture Amp

  • We use culture amp to measure engagement levels surrounding certain "standard" questions we ask on a recurring basis. this gives us a viable way to measure how we are doing overall in certain areas that are important to us.
  • The Diversity survey helped us pinpoint some areas were we could work on improving. This came out in comments from several users.
  • We have to keep in mind that comments are important, but sometimes it is just one person who is upset about one thing that does not affect anyone else. We must keep that in mind and set those aside. It is easy to get caught up in some of those comments.
Lisa Shapiro | TrustRadius Reviewer

Paycor

  • I have lost hours, patience, and brain cells trying to get support with the platform, and still no answers.
  • I have payroll issues spanning multiple pay periods that need to be solved on behalf of employees, and it is not a good look that we have to tell them we are still trying to fix.
