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.

Keeping an accurate time off calendar, with specific buckets, is extremely important. It has helped my company grow without having to manage things in Excel. Also, implementing an annual review process by using CakeHR has been very clean and transparent with my employees. This also allows me to see year over year. In years past, we used Word or a Jotform which made it challenging to pull up years past.

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.

  • Employee self service - the apps and desktops GUIs are very intuitive.
  • Leave management - this manages itself through the app and system, saves lots of admin.
  • Customization - you can tailor the system more and more to suit your specific needs.
  • Updates and Customer Service - the CakeHR team gave dedicated a lot of time to bring out weekly updates and systems improvements which shows they are dedicated to making this a great product - the fact that they were bought by Se recently is also testament to their ongoing mission.

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).

  • Calendar could be offered in a larger view by week
  • Requesting time and accepting it would be great if linked with our own calendar Bookeo

My staff "actually" likes it! I can tell because they are actively in the program almost daily!

Customer support is amazing. There are times I post a question and I don't get back to support. They will always follow-up with an email to make sure our questions are answered. I even had a call with Julianna who was wonderful and very personable. You definitely get a level us service that exceeds most companies. Keep up the good work CakeHR.

Alternatives Considered

Culture Amp

Before Culture Amp we used Gallup for our staff engagement survey. Culture Amp is SIGNIFICANTLY better for us. Gallup would not allow us the customization or reporting features that we needed, and comes with Culture Amp. The platform and functionality of Culture Amp, plus all the survey templates and all aspects of the staff experience are so beneficial for us, and we didn't get that from Gallup.

For core HR functionality, this is the only product we use. For ATS, we have experimented with BreezyHR. We've learned that CakeHR is adding an ATS module soon though.

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

Sage HR (formerly CakeHR)

  • The system shows us all days off and overtime, so we can manage this and know everything is like agreed in the contract.
  • A simple and affordable system with room to grow.
