Overall Satisfaction with PiiQ by Cornerstone

Cornerstone Growth Edition was our organization's first automated performance management system. When this was rolled out to a software company, the adoption of it was well received because of the look and the ability to adjust gummies with further explanation. The self assessment piece worked really well with establishing clear goals and allowing team members to rate themselves. This allowed for content to drive performance conversations between the team lead and team member.
  • CornerStone Growth Edition allows for more variability when rating individuals. It wasn't just a clear excellent or missed it. This allowed us to relay all context with each situation.
  • CornerStone Growth Edition was flexible with the terminology we wanted to use during the set up of the system.
  • The helicopter view of performers was a great tool to stack rank team members across the board.
  • When I used it, Cornerstone Growth Edition had the opportunity to improve its reporting features. It was hard to tell who had completed ratings and who had not. There was also no custom reporting feature.
  • We are no longer using Cornerstone because we needed a system that would help us give continuous feedback and direction. We decided that every six months was not enough for our changing work environment.
  • Utilizing Cornerstone helped our leadership better establish clear goals and expectations for individuals.
  • Cornerstone tools promoted good conversations between team lead and team member when utilizing the feedback tools and self assessments.
I would look at frequency of performance management sessions. Consider if goals change within a session period and how that will be relayed or rated in conjunction with what work was already done on the previous goal.
