Overall Satisfaction with Cornerstone OnDemand

We use Cornerstone for the whole organization but only in Europe so far. However, we plan to also implement the system at our other subsidiaries in the world. Cornerstone helps us to manage recruiting, learning, performance, and succession in only one system instead of buying a system for recruiting, another system for learning, and so on.
  • great user community (always ready for help)
  • great online help and release documentation
  • new features are available 4 times per year
  • client suggestions are ignored or not addressed seriously
  • quality and responsiveness of customer support has to be improved
  • some areas in the system are in outdated design
  • maintaining compliance
  • digitalization of processes to save time
  • increase employee productivity
Overall the configurability of Cornerstone is very good. If you know how to or if you have found a workaround a lot of customizations are possible. However, sometimes you simply have to accept the options you have and maybe you have to adjust your own processes so that they can be rebuilt in Cornerstone.

Do you think Cornerstone OnDemand delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with Cornerstone OnDemand's feature set?

Yes

Did Cornerstone OnDemand live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Cornerstone OnDemand go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Cornerstone OnDemand again?

Yes

Cornerstone is especially a great system for learning and it's implementing a lot of new learning features. The recruiting module is ok. Other standalone recruiting software [does] better. Cornerstone can be a very good solution for you if you want to reduce [the] amount of different HR systems. Sometimes specific requirements can be fulfilled but it's not possible to customize everything how you want it.
