Employees that come into work are needed to clock in to get paid for the amount of time they are working per day. They will log on to Darwinbox and clock in as soon as they can. Some will use the PTO they have available to use. HR will be able to make payroll in a timely manner for employees.

Lever
I think Lever is great for any sized company, but especially strong for smaller, growing teams. It's a very simple system, but clean, sleek, and very useful in any scenario. They have great support whenever you need it so those with smaller HR or People teams could easily benefit from their help. Can't think of too many scenarios where Lever wouldn't be well-suited, but maybe once you grow to International growth and hiring, it may be better to have a more Enterprise style business, set up for larger scaling.

Cons
Darwinbox
  • The app version is a bit lankier than the pc version.
  • Interface customization would be great for individuals wanting to change style.
  • No other real issue to improve, possibly lower the price but that's not too bad.

Lever
  • [In my experience,] terrible customer support - pay more to get less...
  • Integrations are spotty and can break without reason
  • Lever has so much potential, but their Roadmap is lacking in ways that will really help customers succeed
  • Focuses on the number of candidates and not the company's need to build talent in a cost effective, data driven and collaborative way
  • Overpromised and underdelivered in [the] capability of the tool. [I believe that you should] not trust your sales team.

It isn't difficult to use for the applicant processing, but [I feel] if you want to pull reports or use their tools, good luck!

What support? - Add a ticket and get links to [I believe] their unhelpful user guide. Add a charge if you want better support - afterward just got those links faster...

Darwinbox is up there with ADP in terms of quality for employers to use in such an open-level style. I personally would support the use of Darwinbox against the competition.

Lever
Lever is comparable to Greenhouse in its basic recruiting functions. I have found it to be WAY better than Bullhorn (clunky and overly-complicated with a very dated and non-intuitive interface) and Jazz HR (slick and pretty, but limited in its functions). The best ATS I've used is the proprietary tool at Meta, but alas, that tool is for internal use only

Return on Investment
Darwinbox
  • The ability to view the organization structure and functional structure for the entire company.
  • One-stop solution for talent acquisition, payroll, leaves, reimbursements, attendance (time-sheet), holidays, etc. So I don't have to open a lot of different apps.

Lever
  • Lever provides an enormous ROI by getting us in front of the right candidates that are going to make us more money and more successful as an org.
  • I think that both the quality and quantity of new hires has gone up ever since we started using lever and involving the entire org in the process.
  • It also saves us a lot of time because we don't need to send referrals via email, while saving/attaching resumes and such.
