Halogen Software Pros Halogen Software Cons
Strong Feature set
Very effective and well-integrated appraisal, goal alignment and 360 degree multi-rater functionality.
Track changes
Ability to track changes in the job description builder would be nice, but they are working on it.
Excellent training/Implementation
System administrator training and system Implementation are both very effective. Implementation staff is very competent and easy to work with.
Compensation module
The compensation module has limitations, particularly around bonuses and stock options.
The user interface is very easy to use and learn, even with minimal training.
Notification options are limited and there is no way to segment different notifications or route for approval before sending.
Customer support
Very competent support staff and highly responsive.
Reporting capabilities are quite basic and not very flexible. There are very few customization options.
