This ranges from salary increases, promotions, transfers, etc. to reporting. It is used across the entire organization. It addresses our need to support the management of our entire employee population.,For me, the reporting aspects of the product provide a lot of value. The ability to access data for my entire department quickly helps me find data for specific data calls in an efficient manner. We've recently gone through a reorganization and the product performed very well when moving resources between teams. A module that we developed (eCOMP) seamlessly pulls data and provides users with salary recommendations that tie to our overall corporate pay strategy.,When the reorganziation occurred, when selecting an employees new organziation, I was required to type in the 'data field' vs. the common name of the group. This was cumbersome and cost time. This process could be made more efficient. When using the product to see my entire organization, there are times when use of the back button on my browser causes issues, and the data isn't refreshed properly.

We hired a consultant to support us.,6,Employee self service improved organization efficiency over 60% Not all employees are well trained to use HCM. They often come to payroll to get guidance to use HCM,Northern California Oracle Applications Users Group,,TIBCO JaspersoftOracle PeopleSoft HCM review from the Higher Education business Perspective.Oracle PeopleSoft HCM is being implemented organization-wide. The Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges (SBCTC) oversees Washington State’s system of 34 public community and technical colleges with a total of about 22,000 employees and nearly 381,000 students each year. Over the years, our 34 colleges used the Legacy software system to create a variety of practices and processes to take care of business, from student financial aid reports to payroll processing. Each district developed different ways to do the same thing. So implementing Oracle PeopleSoft HCM helps in moving to a single HCM system for all the colleges which help in conducting business easily and reduce the cost immensely in maintaining the employees.,Oracle PeopleSoft HCM is one of the best product and has helped implement the complex Business functionalities in the Higher Education business in a very streamlined process. Oracle PeopleSoft HCM helped in moving from 34 different legacy system to one centralized system which helps immensely in maintaining the data and reporting purpose. Oracle PeopleSoft HCM also helps immensely in data analytics and trend analysis which helps immensely in preparing for the resourcing and planning for the peak season in advance and be better prepared to handle the quarterly on annual activities.,Oracle should bring back the Breadcrumbs navigation back to PeopleSoft Fluid screens. PeopleSoft Absence Management is also a Global payroll product which causes issues in processing absence for employees in multiple open calendars which is useful when processing payroll but not for Absence processing. So there should be an option when using this product for Absence Processing only. It should allow employees in multiple open calendars to be processed. In higher education, there are some employees where a "leave" belongs to the person and not each job. So it would be helpful to have the functionality of having employees working in multiple jobs accrue leaves from multiple jobs but all stored at the payee level(which is possible today) but they should get an option to select the supervisor to whom the leave request gets assigned based on all the active job records.,9,It is still the initial stages of the product and has not implemented it for all the colleges. We will be able to come with the numbers after a year or so.,Higher Education User Group (HEUG),Microsoft Office 365, SQL Developer, Oracle DatabaseNon-technical value of PeopleSoft HCMPeopleSoft HCM is being used across all Cru ministries in the US. We are using it to track employee data, provide benefits administration, payroll processing, compensation, and recruiting functions.,The effective dating feature of PeopleSoft is especially useful in tracking the life cycle of an employee's relationship with the organization, from the time they apply for an opening until the time they decide to retire from the company. Every transaction can be tracked within the system so you have the historical data needed to support any type of reporting that may be required. Security is another thing that PeopleSoft does well. The ability to have row level security in addition to page security is very useful when you need to provide access to the data for various categories of employees. For example, we can set security permissions so that it allows a payroll clerk to see only hourly employees since that is the pay group for whom they're responsible for processing. The Employee Snapshot in Manager Self-Service is an awesome new feature! It allows managers at any level to see specific data not only about their direct reports, but also 2nd and 3rd+ level direct reports as well. using a graphical drill down capability to get the details. I also like that you can use many types of devices to work with PeopleSoft HCM. I can see the same information from my laptop, tablet or phone as needed. The Dotted Line Reports feature of Company Directory will be an added bonus for our organization since many of our teams function as networked teams rather than hierarchical ones.,We really need to have more flexibility with the number of leaders for teams. We have many cross-functional teams that have more than one team leader. The ability to identify multiple leaders who can access their team members' data would be extremely helpful with how our staff work in a team environment. Better documentation on the set up steps is needed. The wizards have helped a lot but they are still sometimes hard to use. Vidoes are helpful too, but often don't go to the level of detail necessary to completely set up a new feature or function. Security is often confusing. Whenever new functionality is made available or a PUM update is done, the roles/permission lists to use it is sometimes difficult to find. Having a better way to search for that would be helpful. The UX for Security needs needs to be redesigned. It is difficult to figure out all of the necessary steps to implement a change to a user's role or a permission is made. You often have to go to another place in the system to finalize the change such as running the SJT class update, which leads to that step being missed until you don't see your change in the system hours later!,9,We really don't quantify the ROI aspect...we've been using PeopleSoft HCM since 1995 so it's now just a part of our operational culture. We are planning to implement more analytics going forward, but we haven't focused on that aspect until lately. One positive impact is that we're able to add new companies/subsidiaries into our HCM business processes within a short amount of time (usually 6 months or less) to enable them to benefit from the functionality of using PeopleSoft HCM for their employees.,Quest International User Group,NetSuite and Workday Human Capital Management,SQL Developer, JIRA Software, HipChat, NetSuite, Resource Guru,8200,9,Job transactions - Hire/rehire, transfers, pay changes, terminations Payroll - paychecks and tax processeing Benefits - enrollment and integration to Benefits vendors Recruiting - application processing through Hire process,Ability to pay special category of staff who are essentially 'self-employed' based upon an account balance used to reduce pay if there are insufficient funds in the account Ability to add the special category of staff as a 'Non-employee' and track their job details through the process to be 'hired',Adding a Volunteer application process Provide distributed HR functionality with minimal (or no) training via Guided Self Service and Activity Guides More mobile functionality for users,10,No,Price Product Features Product Usability,I would likely look at a cloud-hosted implementation rather than on-premise if making the decision today.,Don't know,No,Change management was a big part of the implementation and was well-handled,Handling the non-traditional staff model (like self-employed people) that required payroll amounts to be adjusted during the payroll process A custom payroll to GL interface was required due to the non-traditional staff model,6,Yes,8,Yes,None come to mind right now.,Life Events are very easy to use for address, phone, dependent, contact updates Recruiting - applications are very easy to follow for applicants looking for positions with our company Employee Self Service has been very useful in relieving the administrative burden for employee data changes.,Recruiting - setting up job openings is a cumbersome process Integration Broker - it's complicated to set up messaging (XML, REST, etc) services The technology is a little difficult to work with in Application Designer -- the functionality needs to be be updated so the there's more sharing across projects and it needs to have more drag/drop capabilities.,Yes,9PeopleSoft HCM - solid, but what does the future hold?We use it across the organization for staff recruiting; core HR including position management; base benefits; time and attendance, and payroll. We went live in 2001 and are currently in release 9.2. We do not currently use Fluid for self-service but hope to start this summer or fall. One Fluid feature we're waiting for is manager approval of reported time, which is rumored to be coming soon.,Payroll processing has been stable for the entire time we've used HCM and generally has the flexibility to handle a variety of situations we encounter in paying students, faculty and staff, including many cases of multiple jobs. Self-service using the classic pages has worked well for us and has relieved HR staff from answering many questions individually. The PeopleTools technology framework has allowed us to add new capabilities not supported by the product, including creating a way for managers of student workers to hire them without HR involvement.,We have issues with students using Time & Labor for multiple jobs, where time is incorrectly calculated, including negative balances where none exist. The application is complex and some areas, especially Time & Labor, are very difficult to troubleshoot. The overall level of complexity has increased over the years. We also use Campus Solutions and had to split apart HCM and CS, significantly increasing our maintenance overhead and creating inter-system issues that aren't always resolvable. Campus Solutions has developed a solution for managing preferred names and gender identity that is missing/ incompatible with the HCM product.,5,We don't have a reliable way to measure ROI on PS HCM. We need to have a solid, reliable HR/Payroll/Time & Attendance system and PS HCM has met that need for more than 15 years. We were able to avoid purchasing expensive time clock hardware and associated software for the campus by making use of the delivered Web Clock Time & Labor capability, which likely saved us several hundred thousand dollars, plus ongoing maintenance and replacements. PC HCM annual maintenance is expensive and increases every year. Most of the enhancements delivered to us haven't been relevant to our business.,Higher Education User Group (HEUG),,Technolutions Slate, PeopleSoft Financials, Oracle Database, Ellucian AdvanceOracle PeopleSoft HCM ReviewIt is used across the organization, a recent merger to a bigger organization will enhance the user count manifolds. Payroll, Base Benefits, and Human Resources are the primary modules that are in use. We have multiple integrations with Taleo, ADI, and other external applications. Our platform is on Oracle Cloud. This is a new implementation and we are seeing a massive performance gain.,Employee Payroll is divided into weekly and monthly, and we have different employees such as contingent worker and temps. All these are properly and tactfully handled by Position Management. We keep our system up to date with latest tax update versions. Our payroll is smooth flawless since the introduction of Payroll for NA. Base benefits allow proper maintenance of employee and dependent health benefits as well as vacation and leave accruals.,There is not much self-correcting ability in BAS Benefits, if Ben Admin can be more robust and informative it can help operation smoothen further. COBOLS can be a concern and at times depends on running certain DMS, a clearer instruction can help admins and developers to troubleshoot. At times we need to spend hours in MOS to find the proper documents. If all these docs are combined in an ordered way it could become a one-stop point for troubleshooting.,10,Very positive impact. Employee performance increased. The ROI in terms of resource allocation and meeting commitments started to see better results.,Not a member of any user groups,PeopleSoft Financials, Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance ManagementPeopleSoft - Just Okay..Oracle PeopleSoft, and its various business application services, is being used across my organization. Primarily serving as the HR platform we use it for both benefits administration, compensation, and talent acquisition. Other non-HR features being used are for finance management, procurement, invoicing, and legal contract management. PeopleSoft systems are utilized by all managers and all employees in some form. Having a centralized hub of organizational information helps streamline operational efforts in an organization of near 7000 employees. For the most part, the various services communicate well, are easy to train new staff in, and act a platform that our IT programmers can develop on to meet new business requirements.,The system allows for a lot of customization. Our talent acquisition platform is almost completely customized to communicate with our financial and compensation teams who aide in the position request and approval process. While the updates certainly take time, we utilize Oracle support to make our systems our own in order to meet business needs. The dashboards are user-friendly both for employees and managers. The self-service features are great tools for allowing employees to set up their payroll and tax preferences, distribute pay stubs, and monitor PTO. For orders or invoice pay requests this is all built in to communicate with our procurement and accounts payable teams. This is a great tool to help effectively get requests through and approved in a hierarchy format. As a large organization, there is a plethora of information stored and made available to the organization. Having the ability to house so much data and have the system run as quickly as it does is certainly impressive. With such emphasis on less paper trail, this has certainly been a cost-effective means to make information available electronically.,Although the customization is a strength, this is largely due to some business systems of PeopleSoft being out of date. The HR system for talent management is pretty poorly designed out of the box. There are updates from Oracle that may have the system more comparable to other popular applicant tracking systems, but ours is fairly bare bones. As a result we’ve customized this entirely, and unfortunately deal with a fair amount of internal errors. Luckily from the outside our applicants and candidates do not face issues. Our current PeopleSoft version is not mobile compatible and overall they were behind the ball in implementing mobile friendly systems. As a business and society of always on the go, the inability to effectively utilize all services from a tablet or phone is disappointing. Again, there are rumors of mobile compatibility upgrades, but the upgrade is too pricey for us to take on at this time. The performance management function was very old fashioned. It was difficult to manage and utilize by both team leaders and employees. Our organization recently removed the performance management function and went with an entirely different system. As a rapidly changing and evolving business strategy the check a box and numerical rating on individual performance was not adaptable to a more personalized goal setting performance review process.,7,As mentioned, the self-service functions both for benefit/payroll services, but also the means to submit invoices and procurement orders is a positive impact on our business. This has cut down heavily on time consuming paperwork and manual entry for employees. This has placed the power back in the hands of the employees and helps them feel they’re getting prompt and quick support. Out Talent Management and Careers page has a very high falloff rate – users who start, but never complete an application. There is speculation that this is largely due to errors users face when trying to apply from a mobile device. Given the healthcare industries demand for qualified talent this can have very high negative impact on both patient care and costs of overtime when positions go unfilled. As our organization moves more and more systems and data storage to cloud based services we did have some trouble migrating PeopleSoft, and specifically performance management services. This was a contributing factor in why we moved PM functions out of PepoleSoft and purchased an entirely new system to manage this process for employees. This was a negative return as both purchasing and implementing a new system is costly for the entire organization.,Not a member of any user groups,Dayforce, Lawson and Kronos Workforce Central,Kronos Workforce Central, Ceridian Dayforce, Concur Travel and Expense, SAP Business Objects Data Quality Management, SkillSurvey Pre-Hire 360,7,A couple years ago we were considering moving away from PeopleSoft altogether. Under executive guidance, we were asked to do a full review of the system to determine what works, what didn’t’ work, and what existed that we weren’t utilizing. To do this Oracle sent out at least 2 or 3 consultants that worked with us for a few months. They met with all teams utilizing various systems and did full reviews of current functionality. From their evaluation, they then put together a plan of all the new services available and what aspects of the current system we weren’t utilizing to its full extent.Ultimately this pushed us to stay with PeopleSoft and we continue to have their software today.PeopleSoft is greatWe use Oracle PeopleSoft HCM for our HR and for our Finance area. I work in HR in Compensation and I use it on a daily basis to look information up and to report on information. It helps to organize our HR systems and house/manage our data. I have used it in previous companies as well.,The reporting tool is quite intuitive. I report every day on various data segments. The data comes down very organized.

PeopleSoft HCM is able to capture and track Position information for budgeting and planning purposes, separate from the Employee information. PeopleSoft HCM can handle very detailed and complicated benefit plans. PeopleSoft HCM allows for flexible reporting off of relational tables.,The reporting feature is not intuitive for basic users. It requires someone a little more advanced to set up queries and save them for other users. PeopleSoft HCM is very expensive and implementation is complex and challenging. PeopleSoft HCM is not very intuitive to use. It requires training and a well documented and defined business process to ensure the fields are used correctly to get the most out of the system, particularly when it comes to reporting.,7,This system achieves its purpose which is to track our extremely complex workforce.

I also sometimes use it to query data related to graduate assistants who are hired, and the position titles of faculty who teach graduate-level courses.,The navigation for looking up personnel data is intuitive. Closing combination codes is a very easy process. Query reporting tools are very powerful -- query manager, connected query, and BI Publisher.,I don't know if this an institution issue or not, but the process of adding new combination codes is cumbersome at times. We do it through an Excel spreadsheet, and if we make a mistake/typo, it's a real pain to delete or inactivate it and insert a new row.,8,For my area, it is a necessity to ensure faculty are able to spend money on personnel for grants they earn.

Oracle PeopleSoft HCM Review: "ORACLE HRM PRODUCTS"

Score 7 out of 10
Vetted Review

Review Source
We use Oracle across the organization of about 4000-5000 employees. It allows automation in terms of general HR functions (leaves, benefits, employee management, performance management, etc). It allows control of subordinates and gives us a landscape of performance metrics for each employee reporting to leaders. It can also help in guiding employee growth.
  • It allows me to see my employee credentials in one place
  • It allows me to see "allowed" views of staff reporting to me
  • It allows me to control and file leaves, sick leaves and vacations easily
  • It allows me to plan my leaves tentatively
  • It allows staff to apply for clearance on exiting the company
  • It allows promotion requests online.
  • Would want SMS integration for filing and approving leaves for those who don't have smartphones
  • Email filing of leaves and approvals, not only in the system
  • Easier integration with biometric devices
Oracle HCM is really very functional and can help remove a lot of the mundane filing and approving tasks for both HR, employees and approvers. It is easy to use and very intuitive. I can understand why the resources needed to run it could be substantial, especially for those who still run on-premise. Maybe a less appropriate use would be for smaller (less than 100) companies because of cost. Maybe the cloud version would work better.

Oracle PeopleSoft HCM is being used as our backend processing to support Human Capital actions across the enter organization. This ranges from salary increases, promotions, transfers, etc. to reporting. It is used across the entire organization. It addresses our need to support the management of our entire employee population.
  • For me, the reporting aspects of the product provide a lot of value. The ability to access data for my entire department quickly helps me find data for specific data calls in an efficient manner.
  • We've recently gone through a reorganization and the product performed very well when moving resources between teams.
  • A module that we developed (eCOMP) seamlessly pulls data and provides users with salary recommendations that tie to our overall corporate pay strategy.
  • When the reorganziation occurred, when selecting an employees new organziation, I was required to type in the 'data field' vs. the common name of the group. This was cumbersome and cost time. This process could be made more efficient.
  • When using the product to see my entire organization, there are times when use of the back button on my browser causes issues, and the data isn't refreshed properly.
  • I would like to have the ability to customize the standard reports that are available in the application.
Out of the box, good for small companies that may not have complex compliance issues. Large companies will need high levels of customization.

I've mainly been the user of this product in my organization, but actually been using it for a few years now. Used to use it at the two schools I've attended. I used to use it to schedule classes for the most part, but really just about anything school/college related.
  • PeopleSoft is very customizable to satisfy one's individual needs
  • Can easily be connected to many different PeopleSoft applications
  • Great permission and access controls, flexible to many different use cases
  • Upgrades are very time consuming, and risky
  • Not mobile compatible, or a supported app for Android or iOS--only browser, which does not render very well.
  • Quite expensive and implementation is challenging.
I cannot think of any instance where PeopleSoft HCM would not be the right product, as PeopleSoft HCM is very customizable and flexible to one's needs, and can be controlled in many ways. But PeopleSoft HCM is very well suited for any company or organization that does many basic things such as payroll, finance, school schedules, maintaining records of users, and other details.

The Oracle HCM Suite is used across our organization effectively and its used in all functions and departments.

  • Ease of Use
  • Rich Functionality
  • Payroll Integration
  • The screen could have fewer buttons
  • Allow for simpler upgrades
  • Voice integration when running reports would be great
This product is suitable for small and medium sized to even large sized companies and is very cost effective. Oracle is heavily invested into the success of this product to keep their market dominance in this space. It has great feedback from my teams and has increased user adoption, plus it has lesser implementation time.

"Oracle PeopleSoft HCM review from the Higher Education business Perspective."

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review

Oracle PeopleSoft HCM is being implemented organization-wide. The Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges (SBCTC) oversees Washington State’s system of 34 public community and technical colleges with a total of about 22,000 employees and nearly 381,000 students each year.



Over the years, our 34 colleges used the Legacy software system to create a variety of practices and processes to take care of business, from student financial aid reports to payroll processing. Each district developed different ways to do the same thing. So implementing Oracle PeopleSoft HCM helps in moving to a single HCM system for all the colleges which help in conducting business easily and reduce the cost immensely in maintaining the employees.



  • Oracle PeopleSoft HCM is one of the best product and has helped implement the complex Business functionalities in the Higher Education business in a very streamlined process.
  • Oracle PeopleSoft HCM helped in moving from 34 different legacy system to one centralized system which helps immensely in maintaining the data and reporting purpose.
  • Oracle PeopleSoft HCM also helps immensely in data analytics and trend analysis which helps immensely in preparing for the resourcing and planning for the peak season in advance and be better prepared to handle the quarterly on annual activities.
  • Oracle should bring back the Breadcrumbs navigation back to PeopleSoft Fluid screens.
  • PeopleSoft Absence Management is also a Global payroll product which causes issues in processing absence for employees in multiple open calendars which is useful when processing payroll but not for Absence processing. So there should be an option when using this product for Absence Processing only. It should allow employees in multiple open calendars to be processed.
  • In higher education, there are some employees where a "leave" belongs to the person and not each job. So it would be helpful to have the functionality of having employees working in multiple jobs accrue leaves from multiple jobs but all stored at the payee level(which is possible today) but they should get an option to select the supervisor to whom the leave request gets assigned based on all the active job records.
Oracle PeopleSoft HCM is the best tool in the market for Higher Education business. It helps immensely in implementing complex business scenarios. It also helps a lot as it is a very flexible product and can be easily configured to implement some out of the box functionality. The newer Fluid functionality is also very user-friendly and easy to adopt.

Oracle PeopleSoft HCM Review: "Non-technical value of PeopleSoft HCM"

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source
PeopleSoft HCM is being used across all Cru ministries in the US. We are using it to track employee data, provide benefits administration, payroll processing, compensation, and recruiting functions.
  • The effective dating feature of PeopleSoft is especially useful in tracking the life cycle of an employee's relationship with the organization, from the time they apply for an opening until the time they decide to retire from the company. Every transaction can be tracked within the system so you have the historical data needed to support any type of reporting that may be required.
  • Security is another thing that PeopleSoft does well. The ability to have row level security in addition to page security is very useful when you need to provide access to the data for various categories of employees. For example, we can set security permissions so that it allows a payroll clerk to see only hourly employees since that is the pay group for whom they're responsible for processing.
  • The Employee Snapshot in Manager Self-Service is an awesome new feature! It allows managers at any level to see specific data not only about their direct reports, but also 2nd and 3rd+ level direct reports as well. using a graphical drill down capability to get the details.
  • I also like that you can use many types of devices to work with PeopleSoft HCM. I can see the same information from my laptop, tablet or phone as needed.
  • The Dotted Line Reports feature of Company Directory will be an added bonus for our organization since many of our teams function as networked teams rather than hierarchical ones.
  • We really need to have more flexibility with the number of leaders for teams. We have many cross-functional teams that have more than one team leader. The ability to identify multiple leaders who can access their team members' data would be extremely helpful with how our staff work in a team environment.
  • Better documentation on the set up steps is needed. The wizards have helped a lot but they are still sometimes hard to use. Vidoes are helpful too, but often don't go to the level of detail necessary to completely set up a new feature or function.
  • Security is often confusing. Whenever new functionality is made available or a PUM update is done, the roles/permission lists to use it is sometimes difficult to find. Having a better way to search for that would be helpful.
  • The UX for Security needs needs to be redesigned. It is difficult to figure out all of the necessary steps to implement a change to a user's role or a permission is made. You often have to go to another place in the system to finalize the change such as running the SJT class update, which leads to that step being missed until you don't see your change in the system hours later!
PeopleSoft HCM is well suited for companies that have a variety of employees and business rules that determine their business processes. Having the ability to add customizations when it's absolutely necessary is a big plus and we've used that from time to time since we are a non-profit organization and have some non-traditional types of employees.
PeopleSoft HCM takes a big burden off of our operational staff since it provides most of the regulatory reporting that we have to do. Knowing that Oracle will update the code with all of the Tax changes on a regular basis is such a huge relief for our Tax department and our programming team.
This also applies to companies who are working in a global environment. While not every country is supported, many of them are so that gives a lot of lift to operational staff in those countries.

We use it across the organization for staff recruiting; core HR including position management; base benefits; time and attendance, and payroll. We went live in 2001 and are currently in release 9.2. We do not currently use Fluid for self-service but hope to start this summer or fall. One Fluid feature we're waiting for is manager approval of reported time, which is rumored to be coming soon.
  • Payroll processing has been stable for the entire time we've used HCM and generally has the flexibility to handle a variety of situations we encounter in paying students, faculty and staff, including many cases of multiple jobs.
  • Self-service using the classic pages has worked well for us and has relieved HR staff from answering many questions individually.
  • The PeopleTools technology framework has allowed us to add new capabilities not supported by the product, including creating a way for managers of student workers to hire them without HR involvement.
  • We have issues with students using Time & Labor for multiple jobs, where time is incorrectly calculated, including negative balances where none exist.
  • The application is complex and some areas, especially Time & Labor, are very difficult to troubleshoot. The overall level of complexity has increased over the years.
  • We also use Campus Solutions and had to split apart HCM and CS, significantly increasing our maintenance overhead and creating inter-system issues that aren't always resolvable.
  • Campus Solutions has developed a solution for managing preferred names and gender identity that is missing/ incompatible with the HCM product.
While the PS HCM product more or less meets our current needs, Oracle's message in recent years has been cloud, cloud, cloud, leading one to the conclusion that innovation in the PS HCM space will be minimal in the future. Oracle hasn't outlined a clear path to get to their cloud offering from PS HCM.

It is used across the organization, a recent merger to a bigger organization will enhance the user count manifolds. Payroll, Base Benefits, and Human Resources are the primary modules that are in use. We have multiple integrations with Taleo, ADI, and other external applications. Our platform is on Oracle Cloud. This is a new implementation and we are seeing a massive performance gain.
  • Employee Payroll is divided into weekly and monthly, and we have different employees such as contingent worker and temps. All these are properly and tactfully handled by Position Management.
  • We keep our system up to date with latest tax update versions. Our payroll is smooth flawless since the introduction of Payroll for NA.
  • Base benefits allow proper maintenance of employee and dependent health benefits as well as vacation and leave accruals.
  • There is not much self-correcting ability in BAS Benefits, if Ben Admin can be more robust and informative it can help operation smoothen further.
  • COBOLS can be a concern and at times depends on running certain DMS, a clearer instruction can help admins and developers to troubleshoot. At times we need to spend hours in MOS to find the proper documents. If all these docs are combined in an ordered way it could become a one-stop point for troubleshooting.

Oracle PeopleSoft HCM Review: "PeopleSoft - Just Okay.."

Score 7 out of 10
Vetted Review

Oracle PeopleSoft, and its various business application services, is being used across my organization. Primarily serving as the HR platform we use it for both benefits administration, compensation, and talent acquisition. Other non-HR features being used are for finance management, procurement, invoicing, and legal contract management. PeopleSoft systems are utilized by all managers and all employees in some form. Having a centralized hub of organizational information helps streamline operational efforts in an organization of near 7000 employees. For the most part, the various services communicate well, are easy to train new staff in, and act a platform that our IT programmers can develop on to meet new business requirements.

  • The system allows for a lot of customization. Our talent acquisition platform is almost completely customized to communicate with our financial and compensation teams who aide in the position request and approval process. While the updates certainly take time, we utilize Oracle support to make our systems our own in order to meet business needs.
  • The dashboards are user-friendly both for employees and managers. The self-service features are great tools for allowing employees to set up their payroll and tax preferences, distribute pay stubs, and monitor PTO. For orders or invoice pay requests this is all built in to communicate with our procurement and accounts payable teams. This is a great tool to help effectively get requests through and approved in a hierarchy format.
  • As a large organization, there is a plethora of information stored and made available to the organization. Having the ability to house so much data and have the system run as quickly as it does is certainly impressive. With such emphasis on less paper trail, this has certainly been a cost-effective means to make information available electronically.
  • Although the customization is a strength, this is largely due to some business systems of PeopleSoft being out of date. The HR system for talent management is pretty poorly designed out of the box. There are updates from Oracle that may have the system more comparable to other popular applicant tracking systems, but ours is fairly bare bones. As a result we’ve customized this entirely, and unfortunately deal with a fair amount of internal errors. Luckily from the outside our applicants and candidates do not face issues.
  • Our current PeopleSoft version is not mobile compatible and overall they were behind the ball in implementing mobile friendly systems. As a business and society of always on the go, the inability to effectively utilize all services from a tablet or phone is disappointing. Again, there are rumors of mobile compatibility upgrades, but the upgrade is too pricey for us to take on at this time.
  • The performance management function was very old fashioned. It was difficult to manage and utilize by both team leaders and employees. Our organization recently removed the performance management function and went with an entirely different system. As a rapidly changing and evolving business strategy the check a box and numerical rating on individual performance was not adaptable to a more personalized goal setting performance review process.

Oracle PeopleSoft is probably best suited for employee self-service functions such as benefits enrollment, payroll tax preferences, and other similar HR related features. The financial features and the applicant tracking system are behind other competing business systems. The UI of the system as a whole is not very modern, and not being mobile friendly is a factor here. At the same time, this system is still very comprehensive and best suited for a 1000+ employee organization both due to cost and services. While there have been hiccups over the years of utilizing PeopleSoft our developers and Oracle support have always been available to assist.

We use Oracle PeopleSoft HCM for our HR and for our Finance area. I work in HR in Compensation and I use it on a daily basis to look information up and to report on information. It helps to organize our HR systems and house/manage our data. I have used it in previous companies as well.
  • The reporting tool is quite intuitive. I report every day on various data segments. The data comes down very organized.
  • Oracle interfaces quite well with many of our other systems. We use PeopleFluent and other systems.
  • The input for HR data into PeopleSoft is also very organized. We can enter data one-by-one for employees or do mass uploads. It really helps with the workload.
  • I have heard from my recruiting and talent acquisition groups that the interface to the ATS took a lot of work to integrate effectively.
As mentioned, PeopleSoft specializes and is great for both Human Resources and for Finance reporting. I use it strictly for Human Resources, but have heard from colleagues that the financial side is also quite intuitive. The reporting tools within PeopleSoft make it simple to export lots of data that can then be put into Excel, Access or other programs to further analyze.

UC Berkeley uses Oracle PeopleSoft HCM across the whole organization, as the enterprise Human Resources (HR) system of record for all HR and Payroll actions.
  • PeopleSoft HCM captures detailed information about each employee in the organization, based on a variety of fields and effective dates.
  • PeopleSoft HCM is able to capture and track Position information for budgeting and planning purposes, separate from the Employee information.
  • PeopleSoft HCM can handle very detailed and complicated benefit plans.
  • PeopleSoft HCM allows for flexible reporting off of relational tables.
  • The reporting feature is not intuitive for basic users. It requires someone a little more advanced to set up queries and save them for other users.
  • PeopleSoft HCM is very expensive and implementation is complex and challenging.
  • PeopleSoft HCM is not very intuitive to use. It requires training and a well documented and defined business process to ensure the fields are used correctly to get the most out of the system, particularly when it comes to reporting.
It is well suited to a very large enterprise with a lot of Employee actions, turnover, benefit packages and other details to track.
It is not appropriate for a small or even medium-sized business with straightforward benefits and only a few job titles or actions to track.

For example, a University with hundreds of jobs and actions like Sabbaticals, paid leaves, administrative leaves, probation, etc. requires a system as robust and complex as PeopleSoft HCM. This makes it worth the expense.

It is being used for HR purposes across the entire organization -- managing personnel data, salaries, positions, etc. Specifically, my department uses it because I am delegated to adding or closing grant chartfields that originate from our PeopleSoft Finance database, to make sure personnel on grants are paid from the correct chartfields. I also sometimes use it to query data related to graduate assistants who are hired, and the position titles of faculty who teach graduate-level courses.
  • The navigation for looking up personnel data is intuitive.
  • Closing combination codes is a very easy process.
  • Query reporting tools are very powerful -- query manager, connected query, and BI Publisher.
  • I don't know if this an institution issue or not, but the process of adding new combination codes is cumbersome at times. We do it through an Excel spreadsheet, and if we make a mistake/typo, it's a real pain to delete or inactivate it and insert a new row.
My exposure to the product is more narrow than some other users. Overall, the information from HR publishes and subscribes via basic sync to the Financials database that I use much more often.

Oracle's PeopleSoft HCM is a well rounded ERP package that has been on the market for a few decades. It is thoroughly tested and supports all the needs of organizations across the US and the globe. PeopleSoft's ability to leverage functionality with ease of use is remarkable. With all the new features that have been rolling out, it can compete with other products in the market.
  • Thoroughly Tested and developed to adhere to industry needs in the US.
  • Great technical support staff that can be contacted to help by filing service requests.
  • Helpful manuals in the form of PeopleBooks with loads of useful content to gain technical and functional knowledge about PeopleSoft.
  • Great way to not only customize a particular solution but also provides a great way to integrate with third-party solutions.
  • Some modules need in-depth functional knowledge to work as configured. This can lead to some issues if set up is not configured properly.
  • Hard to recruit, train and retain technical and functional staff. Employers are always on the lookout for new people interested in PeopleSoft.
  • Customizations made by clients can also cause a hindrance to what Oracle can deliver. This is the major reason why it isn't able to catch up to the level of some of its other competitors.
Great for mid-size to large organizations and public sector employers that need tools for payroll, recruitment, talent management, and workforce management along with all the other core HCM services. It is not, however, a one-stop shop for all needs. Some of the reporting tools and solutions seem inadequate or not up to industry-wide levels.

My organization (of the higher education sector) use PeopleSoft HCM, Campus Solutions, and Finance. PeopleSoft HCM is being used across the entire organization and is it used to manage our people resources and is also used to manage security across the different systems. It is used to support administrative business processes like employee movement, performance appraisal, and Payroll.
  • Flexibility in handling multiple concurrent assignments.
  • ePerformance and Time & Labor are highly configurable
  • We are also using Contract Pay for a group of employees. Once the bugs have been addressed, it is a great solution to our business needs.
  • Limited functionality on Profile management and Career Development
  • There should be better integration between core HR and Time and Labor
  • Alert notifications are not easy to implement.

Well suited for large organizations where business change is managed well, and where there are minimal exceptions to policies and processes.

It is not appropriate for small organizations (less than 300 employees) because the cost of support is high.

PeopleSoft is being used across the entire organization - university setting. It is used to manage student applications, financial aid, employee data, payroll, and nearly every other aspect of people at the university.

It is NOT used as a CRM for tracking prospective students to the university though, Hobson's Radius is used for that. It also is not used for graduate applications; we use Terra Dotta for managing those applications.
  • Handles alarge amount of students, employees, and people
  • The system is not as intuitive for end users. They know their own functional areas after training, but needing to use other parts of the system can be a learning curve.
