iCIMS Talent CloudJobvite
Considered Both Products
iCIMS
Chose iCIMS Talent Cloud
We recently went through an RFP process and iCIMS was a finalist with Avature and Jobvite. iCIMS finished third in that RFP because of their high cost, challenging customer service, difficult reporting and their ability to work with us on customization of our site.
Chose iCIMS Talent Cloud
At the time Jobvite was not user friendly or easy to customize, which is what led me to look for alternatives. They have since changed their platform to be more competitive, but I have no interest in changing at this time.
Chose iCIMS Talent Cloud
Jobvite was our last ATS that has better marketing/CRM solutions, however, we experienced negative customer service and decided to switch to iCIMS for a similar price point. We are in the process of moving to Workday Recruit as our new ATS which doesn't offer as much …
Chose iCIMS Talent Cloud
Lever is more user friendly, more visual, and less reporting issues. iCIMS Talent Cloud is more configurable and able to grow more candidates in a faster fashion. Lever has better support than iCIMS, which is an overall win for anyone using it. Lever is also growing their …
Chose iCIMS Talent Cloud
Better technology. Reasonably priced. Great customer service. Continually updates to keep current. Strong partnerships with other vendors. Great add-on services.
Chose iCIMS Talent Cloud
iCIMS Talent Acquisition allowed us the necessary reporting, searching, and hosting we were looking for and once this implementation was completed, the usability of the programs are very easy. The additional ability to expand into various Onboarding and coordinating tasks for …
Chose iCIMS Talent Cloud
iCIMS was the best bang for our buck!
Chose iCIMS Talent Cloud
iCIMS seems more adaptable, scale-able, for a competitive cost.
Proven platform, with good clientele, good ratings.
Chose iCIMS Talent Cloud
Bullhorn is most similar I saw to iCIMS - It's ideal for large staffing organizations with 100s of reqs.

Jobvite - My organization ultimately selected this as our current ATS. We are a smaller, growing company with an entrepreneurial mindset and Jobvite fits perfectly with our …
Chose iCIMS Talent Cloud
I was not involved in the RFP process for iCims.
Chose iCIMS Talent Cloud
We looked at the solutions above before deciding on iCIMS. We found iCIMS had the functionality to support our automated requisition and offer approval process, local language support for resumes/messages, ease of use, and right price point. A high level of customer service was …
Jobvite
Chose Jobvite
I used iCIMS in the past, and considered them when I selected Jobvite for this organization. I found at the time that the customizability and social recruiting tools were just better with Jobvite, and ended up feeling that they were the better solution for our needs.
Chose Jobvite
While I had not used it, we heavily considered iCIMS as a possible solution. It's also a best of breed product, with many of the same types of advancements as Jobvite, but it lacked in connection to social networks and does not have a dedicated CRM that connects to it. Jobvite …
Chose Jobvite
We picked Jobvite primarily because the cost to features ratio was the right one for us based on our business requirements. We also selected them because of ease of use, strong customer support, and the ability to support multiple market-facing brands. CATS is good but very …
Chose Jobvite
Jobvite easily beats all 3 of these. UlltiPro although branded as an ATS is not an ATS, it is a data repository and lacks everything I as a long time recruiter and talent acquisition manager would need to effectively do my job. iCIMS wasn't bad, but was more difficult to learn …
Chose Jobvite
iCIMS was going to be our first choice, but was more expensive for what we needed. I would rate Jobvite very similar to iCIMS.
Chose Jobvite
Jobvite is more user-friendly from a Talent Acquisition and candidate perspective. You are able to use with very little IT intervention. iCIMS has some capabilities, such as job library, hiring manager survey, external & internal job titles that I wish Jobvite had.
Chose Jobvite
Before implementing Jobvite, we had iCIMS and Kronos Workforce Ready. Neither of these products got us where we wanted to be with metrics, candidate experience, or technology. I'm sure since we left them they have updated, but we are much happier with Jobvite than others. In …
Chose Jobvite
Honestly - I was set to go with iCIMS but the customer service was awful. Jobvite’s customer service is fantastic!
Chose Jobvite
Jobvite will in my opinion easily rise to the top. We had actually selected another system to go with and learned during the implementation phase that it could not do what we needed and wanted it to. In the end, we had to abandon the project and go back to an RFP. When that …
Chose Jobvite
Greenhouse was a close competitor, but at the time (7-8 years ago) we felt Jobvite was ahead of the curve, constantly adapting, and had real recruiters working on their applications and workflows. They understood the landscape.
Chose Jobvite
We selected Jobvite because of what we believe to be better technical capabilities.
Chose Jobvite
We evaluated iCIMS, Taleo, and CATS. Jobvite was hands down the best. All others had pretty poor UX for recruiters and candidates. They felt clunky or slim in terms of features. Jobvite was the best option in terms of slick, simple UI, and complete features.
Chose Jobvite
Products used before are Candidate Manager.
Evaluated iCIMS, Oracle, Cornerstone,
Chose Jobvite
Jobvite has more features than SmartRecruiters, iCIMS, and Taleo. Greenhouse looks like they will blow Jobvite out of the water.
Chose Jobvite
Jobvite is by far my favorite ATS that I have used. I will say that Taleo Enterprise Edition was an excellent tool, perfect in many ways, but I used that when I worked at Booz Allen, and it was highly customized, there were full time administrators on site, and it had really …
Chose Jobvite
The RFP had been started prior to my joining the company and the final decision was down to Jobvite and Newton. Jobvite seemed like it would have the ability to scale further and meet more of our business-oriented (vs just recruiting) needs.

If Taleo had been in the running …

iCIMS
iCIMS Talent Cloud is a great applicant tracking system that allows users to easily identify qualified candidates with built in AI platforms. iCIMS's text recruit is a very helpful tool that allows easy communication from recruiter/admin to candidate, without using personal cell phones on the admin side. This is the day and age that we live in so this is a very appropriate add on.

Jobvite
Jobvite was very useful when used to onboard our new hires. Being a Human capital management company, we hire many individuals on a weekly basis so it helps us keep all of the paperwork organized and prevent any accidents when managing all of the data. Sometimes it does pose a problem for those who are not technologically savvy.

Pros
iCIMS
  • The opt-out message after the 1st text helps weed out the people who are not interested.
  • Having the ability to have templates/answers to frequent questions saved and ready to use makes it easier/faster to talk to multiple people.
  • Being able to schedule text campaigns is amazing. Every Saturday I set up my campaigns for the next week. This gives me more time to focus on other things.

  • Workflow- I love that you can immediately see where in the process a candidate is.
  • Dashboard- The customization and overall feel of the site.
  • Feed- The fact that you can see the feed from the candidates other applications is a plus.

Cons

  • Custom fields--custom fields do not follow the candidate from hire to onboarding. This is problematic because we then have to recreate on the onboarding side to then import into our HRIS.
  • Onboarding picklists are time-consuming to populate. We have to enter options one at a time, rather than being able to do an import. Also, field mapping on Hire is a lot easier than having to set up tags on option sets in onboarding.

Likelihood to Renew
iCIMS
I would say that we are very likely to renew with iCIMS. They seem to continuously be improving their product based on the feedback from their clients. In addition, the thought have having to go through another implementation of this level is daunting and as long as the software continues to meet the business needs of the company and provides the appropriate level of support we will most likely stay. Costs regarding future renewals will also impact this decision and if necessary we will go to market to evaluate other options.

If I were to become an internal recruiter again, I would almost definitely use Jobvite. I liked the fact that we could set up any job application link on our company web site to connect directly to Jobvite. I also liked that Jobvite made employee referral easy to submit, as employee referrals tend to be the highest quality candidates. Jobvite really has all the tools a recruiter needs to get a candidate through a recruiting process quickly without anything slipping through the cracks. Even though there are a lot of features I feel can be greatly improved, I don't think there is anything on the market today that is better than Jobvite

Usability
iCIMS
We just love iCIMS. Our hiring managers love iCIMS. I give it a 9 because some hiring managers do not have to use it as regularly and need reminders on what to do. It really improved our experience with our ATS overall and I wouldn't want to work in any other system in my job.

Support Rating
iCIMS
Let me begin by saying the implementation phase was PHENOMENAL! Katie was our support manager and she was outstanding. The process was cumbersome and time-consuming, but she was outstanding and knowledgeable. That process gets a 9/10 for sure. However, between multiple account manager changes (and no notification) and being promised functionality that doesn't exist, and not hearing back when we reach out to support or open a ticket, the process has been really disappointing since implementation. We do have a new rep who has reached out to introduce himself, and we are optimistic that our experience will improve considerably after that meeting.

Jobvite
Support used to be better. In the last few years, though, I feel like there has been significantly less investment in customer service. We used to have account managers who were very visible and always checking in. Also, there used to be a phone number to get around-the-clock support. I am not sure that that exists at the quality it used to

Online Training
iCIMS
I would say I believe iCims online training is very good. It's informative, visually appealing, and simple in explaining all the different aspects of iCims. I also really like the new candidate onboarding, and all the other training curricula you have up to be able to inform or send out to the candidate. I like you can attach a URL link for videos as well so you can really customize the training. I feel that overall, I would like to see more. Perhaps, more robust options with the training, if that's something iCims is expanding on in the future.

Alternatives Considered
iCIMS
Fully available automation, lesser bad data quality, more information is gathered at the time of applicant profile creation without having the need to ask for any follow ups or additional notifications. Integrates better with Oracle, Workday and SAP than other similar systems. Service tickets are resolved faster than other vendors we worked with.

Before implementing Jobvite, we had iCIMS and Kronos Workforce Ready. Neither of these products got us where we wanted to be with metrics, candidate experience, or technology. I'm sure since we left them they have updated, but we are much happier with Jobvite than others. In the process of searching for a new ATS, we attended demonstrations of 9 other applicant tracking systems and were most impressed with Jobvite.

Return on Investment
iCIMS
  • We implemented iCIMS Talent Cloud right before the pandemic. The pandemic created the most difficult recruitment environment ever. I cannot say that iCIMS Talent Cloud has helped us realize any advantageous success in this battle we are fighting. It gets the job done, but we have realized anything like filling jobs faster or having resources within iCIMS Talent Cloud to allow us to attract candidates differently. Status quo, I guess.

  • Reporting - we had none before other than manually tracking things in excel documents, now we have a full suite of reports and dashboards we can customize.
  • Interview Scheduling - With the candidate self-scheduling feature, we can now schedule interviews in a matter of seconds while also automating the candidate confirmation email and the calendar invites.
  • More detailed source tracking than I have seen in any other product allowing full visibility on who we hire, where they came from and we can now analyze our sources.
