Easy to use, easy to learn, lots of support during the learning process. There are a few parts of the system we don't use and I'm hesitant to begin using because other clients have said they're difficult and cumbersome (certifications) or outdated (libraries).

There are probably easier platforms, but you will trade configurability. Its like the difference between Iphone and Android. iphone is easy ........as long as you want to do what it allows you to. and thats all you get.

for uses in general is easy to use, its not too much necessary to give support continuosly. But at the configuration and administration there is a little difficult to manage some things, there are lots of options and its important to have a global admin vision when you make any change or implement a new process.

While robust, the system is fairly easy to use from the administrator side. From the learner side, it is really easy to use. It is easy to search for training, find your transcript, and register for training. It is slightly more difficult for managers in regards to creating reports for tracking their employees' learning.

as we use it mainly for the Regulatory training consumption it does satisfy this business need for our corporation.
The Learning assignment tool is easy to use to push the trainings, setting up a due date and with the reports the progress and be checked and follow-up if needed.

Cornerstone is a highly customizable solution, and while it is necessary for client admins to upskill with their knowledge of the system to be in a position to more easily optimize its functionality - the user experience is incredibly frictionless. The manager experience is intuitive, and the performance module is designed for a modern interface with check-ins and goals.

It took me a while to teach myself but with the combination of the on-line training, on-line help and global support I have mastered what I need. I am constantly learning and attending the webinars and discussions offered.
For our users - especially those not very computer literate, and for whom using a PC is a small part of their work, I create very detailed training guides which include screenshots with arrows pointing where to click. The training you provide to users must be at their level of understanding, and this will set you up for successful implementation of Cornerstone in your organisation. This applies especially in the Performance module which can be a bit trickier than the Learning module.

I find Cornerstone OnDemand to be very easy to use; however, I dislike the 'back' functionality. When you want to go back to the previous page, the system doesn't remember the criteria you previously put in and you have to re-enter your criteria and redo your search. That tends to slow things down when you're pressed for time. I am sure they are working on it though.

The system is huge so, even after using it as an administrator for a few years, I still find there are lots of pieces and things I do not know. Some of the more everyday tasks have cumbersome user interfaces that you become accustomed to but would be greatly helped by a redesign. The availability of assistance articles and the new knowledge bank help greatly with usability as you have a quick place you can go to for help with figuring out how to do various tasks.

Cornerstone has a lot of useful features. I recommend new admins go to the two-day class in Santa Monica to learn about the basics of Cornerstone. The users groups (when in-person) are also useful for networking and getting tips about how others are utilizing Cornerstone. Some items could use improvement - for example why does a training description only appear on a transcript when it the learning object is in a curriculum? If it is assigned as an individual learning object, the training description does not show on the transcript. I like the new updates of Reporting 2.0 but it seems to crash a lot.

For an LMS, it’s not horrible. They are making improvements with their customers support team, but it still has a long way to go. Also, because it is a cloud solution, there is little flexibility with getting changes made in the system. Even items that are logical and would be a great improvement, it takes a long time, if ever to get these changes put in.

I believe for the most part, Cornerstone OnDemand is a very good system for human performance management. With that said, they do have areas they need to improve. Support, mobile, and simplified/updated design, all need more attention.

The user interface is clean, polished, and responsive on variety of devices (browser, tablet, phone). It also offers a fair degree of configurability so that both the look and feel of the system and some of the navigation elements can be changed to make adoption easier for end users. The new Learning Landing Page is a terrific step in UX, but some additional configuration around the elements on this screen would make us more apt to enable it in our portal.

Very user-friendly. I am a "millennial" who's rather tech savvy and understands the basic navigation functions and was able to pick up on this very easily. they've mimicked features of popular websites we use every day to make the admins and users familiar with navigation and completion.
