Overall Satisfaction with 15Five

We use 15five in our department to check in with management once monthly. Management sends out a survey of sorts to gauge work satisfaction, etc, and to get feedback about any troubles we're running into. We also use 15Five for our weekly check-ins with our immediate supervisors. Once we have our one-on-ones we receive a follow-up email through 15Five with a synopsis of what we discussed. 15Five, in our department, is primarily used to communicate more thoroughly and consistently with our leadership team. Our team works 2 days out of office and 3 days in office, so it's another tool that makes it easier to stay in touch with our supervisors and upper management team. Once we submit our answers to the questions that are asked in our monthly 15Fives, our supervisors are able to respond directly to those answer. It's really just a way to touch base. 15Five makes it fun and interactive though. Our team particularly enjoys the "high five" feature which allows us to foster team morale and have some fun. Our company is a smaller start-up company, and company culture is really important to us. I think the software jives well with our culture and adds to the feeling of community.
  • Fosters employee engagement
  • Allows leadership to gather feedback from employees
  • Fosters team morale and community
  • questions can be redundant
  • Notifications and the reminders seem constant. I'm still getting a "congrats" on my anniversary pop-up every time I log in (from 3 months ago) and I exit out constantly.
  • I can't answer this question as I've no idea what it costs to utilize 15Five for our company.
I've used BambooHR in the past, and this is really the only software I can compare to 15Five. I really wasn't impressed. It feels very old-school, very clunky.
I think it's perfect for a company like mine. A small-ish start-up company of between 100-200 people. I think it would feel disingenuous to use 15five in a huge corporate setting where, quite honestly, feedback isn't appreciated or implemented, and where leadership really doesn't care how happy you are in your position.
