It was hard in the beginning as people were getting set up and setting the functionality of the system to iron out the issues. However, people are not getting used to the system and know if is easy to use for what they need. We are still working on building our knowledge and asking some questions that we have not come across before but overall it is very easy.

It is not intuitive, in my opinion, but it is quite functional once people are used to it. Getting goals input by my managers is a trial every year. Reviews (self and manager ) go very smoothly.

There are specific things within the goals and competencies that are user-friendly. For example, the rating slider isn't great in my opinion. You can slide in between ratings which can create some odd scoring (if you use scoring). It seems a better solution would be a drop down where you select your rating.

There are also some glitches in the system and have been told Cornerstone is aware of them but are focused on delivering new features. There are workarounds, but that doesn't seem to be a great answer.

Learning is very easy to understand and use. The performance module requires quite a bit of instruction, but this is because it is flexible in terms of how reviews are set up. I engaged The Pendolino Group for a couple of hours of consulting which was very helpful.

The graphic user interface is much improved over the earlier CSOD. Employees and managers alike seem reasonably comfortable with the layout and logic of the program. Built-in user guide is well designed and easily accessible. However, initial setup of the competencies and rating definitions could be easier.

This version of PiiQ has improved the interface and it is more user friendly and more easy to learn. The problem is now the subordinates are not allowed to input their own goals and objectives. All goals are to be input by mangers. Previously, we used to have the subordinates generate and think about their goals first and input in the system, then managers review and calibrate the goals together with the subordinates.

Dashboard is a lovely feature and visually engaging, easy to navigate your way around the system and to get back to home if lost! Each section is clear to score/measure and provide commentary. You are able to drop in past and manager/employee reviews to get that real view of the whole performance review piece

Generally good to use, but some quirky UI issues that can be a bit confusing when you're first getting used to it. A slightly steeper learning curve than some other BI and management systems that we use across the company.
