[It's] good for smaller organizations with a low level of complexity in terms of geographic scope and reporting structures.

Pros

Kenexa

  • Kenexa has been trying to do a better job of understanding the client and candidate needs in the last 12 months but they still have room to improve in this area.

Cons

Kenexa

  • Some of the questions under situational judgment are subjective and don't take into account different scenarios.
  • The test is a little lengthy.
  • Some people do not test well and I am not sure if there is a contingency built in for that margin of error.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Kenexa

I didn't! However, I have used both SmartSearch and SilkRoad OpenHire extensively. SmartSearch is fantastic for recruiter geeks who really want to find out all the neat things that are available. It's fast, super easy to use, and quite elegant in design. Probably not a good choice for larger organizations but certainly worth considering for small to medium orgs. OpenHire is a joy to use. Great UI! It does have one really quirky design feature: each time an applicant applies, a new record is created. The software does allow you to view the notes from all the multiple records in one place but it's really a very odd design choice. OpenHire is worth considering for orgs of all sizes. I have never used Taleo but colleagues have and some love it and others hate it. It would be on my list for medium to larger sized orgs. My overall view is that recruiters always hate the ATS they are using. First question I always ask them is, "What do you need and want to do that you can't do with the system you have?" With most modern systems the answer is invariably "nothing"!
