Likelihood to Recommend

Kenexa

Kenexa is is well suited for any organization that has more than 3000 employees globally. I would not recommend this to startups or a growing organization with less than 3000 employees. But once you cross this number, Kenexa becomes useful and is a brilliant tool for global operations - recruiting. I would recommend this tool to any organization that has offices in many countries/geographies as well.

Cons

  • With Kenexa's acquisition by IBM, the ticket and support process became more difficult.
  • With resources like IBM behind Kenexa, I was hoping to see things move faster but updates to functionality have come at a slower pace than expected. When new features are added, they are not fully functional at launch e.g. mobile job search and mobile apply - they are communicating that both functionalities are ready however when working through the projects to turn on both, we have discovered a lot of limitations and functionality that have made us hesitant to go live with a less than great experience for our users.
  • No one can clearly communicate the roadmaps for new features and enhancements - we often get conflicting information depending on who you talk to.

To be honest, this decision would not reside with me, however, while I would recommend some changes, I think that overall Kenexa is an effective tool.

There Tier 1 support is not knowledgable and things that should take less than 1 day can take 3-4 weeks to get resolved.
