Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

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.

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.

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.

The courses are easy to locate, very easy to assign in bulk or to an individual, and the ability to see who has completed the training is easy as well.

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.

Just wasn't as easy to use I had hoped. The webinars about the new product seemed incomplete and did not fully show how things needed to be done.

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.

CSB used to be very easy to use and manage. PiiQ not so easy. The setup of the review rounds is very confusing and there is no accommodating changing roles. Managers who don't select the proper round end up adding information to the wrong round and then think it was deleted when they select the correct round. I am just not a fan of the new product.
