Overall Satisfaction with Cornerstone OnDemand

Cornerstone is used by the whole organization, but several processes are mainly used in Germany. We´re using cornerstone for - Recruiting - Onboarding (Germany only) - Learning + Content, incl. mobile - Performance - Engage - Reporting - Forms (very few) With Cornerstone, we consolidated severy processes and HR systems on one central platform.

Having everything in one place is a huge key point for a management suite and cornerstone. One view on the employee is a killer feature and I wish, cornerstone would be even more consequent in providing this (in terms of core and compensation topics)
Cornerstone is our first Learning management system, so the streamlining was not that difficult. Now we are able to offer online training, face-to-face-trainings, managed and documented at one single place and provided with a modern UI. Building on the basics, we were able to implement a who-knows-teaches concept and a digital boot camp during the early pandemic phase last year. This could never be realized without this solution.
Cornerstone perfectly fits into a mid-size company, also in prizing (annual fee and implementation), where flexibility is key.
If you are willing to standardize processes and be creative in terms of alternative solutions, Cornerstone has the right level of configurability.

Did implementation of Cornerstone OnDemand go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Cornerstone OnDemand again?

Yes

Cornerstone is leading for learning management and is great for learning content. Most of the user-frontends have a modern UI and are mobile-friendly. The Reporting 2.0-Module is great and still evolving. The interface options for data import are really smart. On the other hand, it´s really tough to use Cornerstone as a master data/core system. The forms- and workflow engine is really poor (new workflow engine upcoming in 2022), the OrgCharti-Engine is very rudimentary, the engage-module has lots of room for improvement. The recruiting module is solid, but not a frontrunner.

  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
Price and functionality, this combination was most important for our decision to choose cornerstone
Clear internal focus and strategy is key.
Many oldschool-sites for the admins, but in the frontend mostly modern and intuitive.

Yes - If you really find a system bug, then it could take longer until it gets resolved.
One day before a groupwide go live, we identified a essential bug in the system, which was go live-critical.
We were able to directly call someone and received a solution in between 2 hours.
