Overall Satisfaction with Cornerstone OnDemand

We use Cornerstone OnDemand as the training provision and tracking component of a state-wide system that also serves as an industry workforce registry.
  • SCORM compliant
  • Users can be grouped and categorized in numerous ways
  • Some components are highly configurable
  • User-submitted external training is editable by users even after it has been approved and completed on their transcript, UNLESS a transcript lock is put into place--which also renders all submitted certificates un-openable once approved. Thus they can never be referenced after approval.
  • The system is designed for annual compliance training to be re-versioned annually. I [believe it] is a very un-user friendly for training that we don't want to re-version because users take it on a rolling, as-needed basis.
  • Some very key components are not configurable and cause our users a great deal of confusion. For example, there is no way to turn off the search bar on a user transcript or even to edit the prompt text within it. Our users are constantly searching for training here, and end up re-opening/re-launching completed courses rather than registering for a new occurrence of a course.
  • In general, we find Cornerstone [onDemand] clunky and that it does not really meet our needs.
  • users able to complete training
  • integration of internal and external training records
  • able to track training with reports
  • able to get feedback from users through course evaluations
We use it but would prefer another platform. Functionality only partially meets our needs. We have to do a lot of workarounds.
Too limited--there are often things we are shocked are not configurable.

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

Not sure

Are you happy with Cornerstone OnDemand's feature set?

No

Did Cornerstone OnDemand live up to sales and marketing promises?

No

Did implementation of Cornerstone OnDemand go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Cornerstone OnDemand again?

No

Not suited for large user groups that are not located within an organization (for example, we are a government entity, and our users are members of the general public--it is not a great solution for us). We find many roadblocks for training that has to be regularly completed again, but that we want users to self-select when needed (ie not assigned by us).
