Overall Satisfaction with 15Five

It's being used across the entire organization to help people effectively track and manage their goals, and to help managers keep their teams accountable. It's also being used for EOY reviews, as it already houses the day-to-day data, and allows people to easily access that info to create a more holistic overview of their annual progress (or lack there of).
  • Incredibly easy to use with a simple, yet appealing UX
  • The week-to-week oversight forces people to think about work in chunks, which I find helpful
  • Reviewing your team's data is also really simple/easy and I like that you can provide comments on both individual tasks, as well as their progress overall
  • I love that the company can ask questions of everyone across the board and switch those up week-by-week. It gives a ton of insight into things that might otherwise be hard to capture in real time
  • I HATE that you can't go back to a 15Five to add goals for a certain week; we submit on Fridays...sometimes things change on Monday and there's nothing I can do
  • I like that I get email reminders, but it's way too many (there's probably way to slow these down, but I'm too busy to figure out how).
  • I found the annual review process confusing - our Head of HR had to tell us when to press submit, etc. to ensure our teams saw things at the right time.
  • We haven't used it for corporate goals yet - once we do, it will be easier to review this...but I've been told it has this capability!
I haven't, as I was not a decision-maker in the purchasing. I've used others in the past, but frankly, can't remember their names!
I've never used the support.

Do you think 15Five delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with 15Five's feature set?

Yes

Did 15Five live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of 15Five go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy 15Five again?

Yes

I actually think it's well-suited for most companies. For start-ups, it gets people in the right mindset and holds them accountable. For larger companies, I like that you can report on how your entire team is doing and how things are progressing over time. Again, it's simple, straightforward, and easy to use. But it does lack some sophistication that might be important to others (being able to make changes, the ability for managers to run their own reports, etc.).
