Overall Satisfaction with Cornerstone OnDemand

[Cornerstone OnDemand] is currently being used in two countries but we are rolling it out to more over time. We use it to track compliance training and production floor training with the Certifications module in Learning. We need it to keep a record of training for audits like ISO and IATF as well as to track general training
  • Uploading and viewing SCORM content is easy
  • UI is sleek
  • Curriculum view is great for learning tracks
  • Certifications are not intuitive and tough to manage
  • Custom certificates could be easier to customize
  • Permission settings can be overwhelming
  • Test Engine is pretty unintuitive to use
  • auditing-Reporting is very good
  • Training Hosting-easy to do
  • Performance review tracking-good
It is good to have a "one-stop-shop" for training and performance evaluation and goal/Mba completion. Our employees already have multiple accounts for our HR and other systems to keep up with, so any way to condense this down helps. We will most likely stay with the learning and performance modules.
We use the certifications sub-module to track production floor employee training. We have a mix of online courses, tests, pdf documents, videos, and ILTs in the system and it is easy to assign training and create curriculums. The certifications module is a little complicated and was pretty hard to wrap my head around to start with.
There are a lot of options and permissions you can configure in Cornerstone. If you have the time to learn the system, you can do a lot with it. It takes at least someone dedicated to the system or better yet a small team to get the most out of the product.

Would you buy Cornerstone OnDemand again?


If you use a lot of eLearning content Cornerstone is great. If you do Instructor-Led Training there are a lot of options in set-up but it can be powerful with the right use. The Performance module for goals and performance reviews works well for us as well. If you just need something simple to keep track of learning, Cornerstone may be a bit overwhelming to start with.
