Overall Satisfaction with BambooHR

Here at Dashlane, we use BambooHR to store all our employee information and use their organization chart to make it easy to find out who is reporting to who. This information is also imported into Small Improvements, which is our tool that we use to help facilitate our feedback checkpoints during the performance review process. We heavily rely on BambooHR to make it easy to control all this data, from a user's first day until we off-board them from our company.
  • Simple UI - Easy for everyone to use and understand, no matter what they are using it for.
  • Clear documentation - Their API documentation is easy to read and makes it easy to know what is and isn't achievable.
  • Integrations with other products - Being able to automatically sync with Small Improvements makes our lives much easier.
  • Lack of features - BambooHR does everything well, but as a user of the platform, it. doesn't do much more than organize our companies directory.
  • Not natural to use some features - At Dashlane, we don't have any need to use the Announcements or Approval features of BambooHR. I don't know why exactly, but we use other platforms to handle this for us.
  • Automatic sync with Small Improvements.
  • Support for a public API.
  • Clear organization chart that is up to date.
  • Searchable directories when I am not sure the role of an employee.
  • Less overall management time for our People team, making their lives easier.
  • Easier collaboration between offices, when we don't know who to speak to if someone is out of office.
  • API usage to pull directory data if we need to display it on another website.

If a company doesn't already have an easy way to onboard, keep track and organize their employees on a directory, I would highly recommend they use BambooHR. As a user, it isn't very difficult to get used to and I find myself looking at it often to make sure I remember who is on what team and who is their manager. I also use it during the onboarding process as a manager, making my life easier to get my new hires into the directory and begin getting them the access they need within the rest of our company.
