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.

Quantum Workplace Engagement Surveys and Pulses

This is well suited to give you a guideline of where your company is at and areas that can improve upon. This was our first year so I believe when we continue to use this it will show areas that we can still improve upon and areas that we have improved upon

Pros

Kenexa

  • Kenexa allows Boolean key word search within a particular requisition so it makes sifting through a high number of applicants manageable and effective
  • Kenexa can be tailored to meet individual business needs. During the time we’ve had Kenexa here I’ve used it in support of a few different business segments and for each the way the system was used to “position” candidate statuses have varied based on the individual need of the business. One example is when interviewing a high volume of applicants internationally, we were able to send qualified applicants through to the “event manager” and it would enable the candidate to select his/her interview date/time based on previously submitted options inputted by our Kenexa users.
  • Kenexa allows one to customize and score questions for each open requisition that applicants complete as they apply. The system then sorts applicants according to the score of candidate answers allowing for easy sorting of top qualified candidates.

Cons

Kenexa

  • Setting up integrations is extremely tedious. For instance, setting up an address feed would have required sending over 5 different spreadsheets on a daily basis (one each for every facility name, street address, zip code, state, country) and a 6th sheet to make the connection between the other 5 elements. We opted not to set up that integration as a result.

There seems to be too much focus on the add-ons, and not enough focus on ensuring that the core system is bug free or delivering what would be expected such a system in 2014

Usability

I feel like I am pretty decent with computers and systems. It was fairly easy to use it after about a week or two . But I have seen people struggle with it as well as some people not use it at all. It can be slow at times and not work at times. But Its a fine system.

I did not have any problems with it. The ease of use was great. If I had a question about anything they would answer it immediately or within a timely manner. They also were one step ahead providing me with information that I would need to know or use. They provide a great product

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

Very easy system to use. I also like how you can customize your survey to work on certain areas you feel are important at the time. They also provide you with a list of questions you can select from as well as implement any custom questions you feel would be beneficial

Alternatives Considered

Kenexa

Kenexa fares very poorly in practice against almost anything else. It checks the boxes of raw functionality, and offers wide customization. However, in practice it is a nightmare to use for almost everything. I was not part of the initial implementation, so I am not aware of all the options that were considered at that time. However, we demoed and implemented several other systems in my time. The star of the pack was Avature CRM. This is a system that is sleek, useful, and facilitates massively enhanced productivity. It gets out of your way and just works. Avature now has a full ATS (they didn't when we started using them) that should be at the top of your ATS consideration list. Avature is the opposite of Kenexa, providing excellent customer support (which we didn't have to pay extra for unlike Kenexa), and a really well-designed product.

I have used Gallup, Survey Monkey, as well as consultant-led survey, prior to discovering Quantum Workplace.
