Overall Satisfaction with BambooHR

BambooHR is used by our organization as an employee management portal. Basically every employee is able to see how the infrastructure of the company is built, via a tree of managers and those they manage. We are able to look up information pertaining to other employees, such as their email, phone number, their department, position, etc. It's very useful for finding out what a certain person does, and how to best reach them. Secondly, BambooHR acts as a system of record for all sorts of employee documents. It holds things like insurance benefits information, down to instructions on how to do administrative tasks like how to request PTO.
  • Great at organizing employee hierarchy tree, making it easy to find people.
  • Great at allowing HR to share information in the form of documents.
  • I like how it lists so many things in one place, almost a monolithic app.
  • I wish the main index page had less clutter, and was better organized.
  • BambooHR would be so much better if it had payroll integration that could replace ADP. So much better!
  • It should be easier to track previously signed documents.
  • I'm just an employee that uses it. I like it a lot as a tool to store information.
  • It would be so much better if it had more integrations: payroll!
  • I've used it numerous times to figure out what department someone is in.
I haven't used many products similar to BambooHR. One that is kind of close is SecureDocs, but it doesn't nearly match the depth of BambooHR. They are about the same when it comes to storing documents, but BambooHR is great in that it does so much more! That's where it really shines, not necessarily that they do one thing super well, but that it can do many things, in one system. That makes it so much easier than having to visit multiple apps.
It's great to have in order to track down other employees at the company, if BambooHR is maintained regularly, like ours is. The directory lets you go from just an employee's email or name, to having their department, and more contact information such as building location, should you want to go find them and speak to them in person, or get in touch with their manager.
It's also good as a directory for important files. I just wish it was easier to search through these files, as well as perhaps some sort of payroll integration would be nice. And a vacation calendar calculator.
