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

Amazing system and features. Very easy to use and navigate - great dashboards and ability to see and understand the data we are using in the system.

I've commented on this in some of my earlier responses. The UX overall is solid, with a few very rough or awkward areas. Overall, navigation can be a real challenge sometimes. The PTO management (for your employees) is sometimes awkward. The biggest problem is around goals tracking, quarterly/annual reviews, etc. It is often very hard to "get to" the view or screen you are looking for (not obvious from the UI). Once you get it down, it works but for things you don't do frequently (quarterly reviews), you forget and have to figure it out again each time. That part is frustrating.

Other areas, like the social networking are very well done and intuitive.

Too much information has to be duplicated and entered in multiple places across the platform.

It works, but there are many things that are inconsistent that bother me. For example, the job title section makes no sense. In onboarding, it's a search field, but everywhere else it's a long dropdown list. And why do job titles need to be an object rather than a text box? This is just one example of issue areas.

Payroll is pretty user friendly and so is running payroll reports. The benefits enrollment is pretty clear and easy to understand. The details behind the benefits and what it will cost per payroll is structured so that it is clear to each user. They used to have a great support system but they recently switched to a ticketing system and it is not as user friendly.

This platform is SUPER user friendly! I cannot stress that enough! It's easy to navigate and doesn't easily confuse employees which has been great when getting them transitioned into this new platform.

Namely has a very nice interface on their HRIS platform. This is fun to use, but is the least important part of the system in my opinion. The payroll, time, and benefits need to be top notch and the payroll system and time system aren't. Benefits has improved significantly from when we first started. Payroll continues to update, which will probably be great once it's more complete. Until then there are constant changes and the systems (HRIS and payroll) don't communicate very well.
