Overall Satisfaction with iCIMS Talent Acquisition Software Suite

iCIMS is used primarily as our applicant tracking system and takes the applicant through the complete new hire process. We are able to prescreen all applicants and determine if we are going to move forward with them. We are able to move applicants to other job requisitions that we feel they may be better suited for. We are able to reject and offer candidates. When we offer, we are able to track their status all the way through the completed background and additional onboarding paperwork. Everything is automated and electronic, so we are no longer swimming in paperwork for every applicant. iCIMS is used across our entire company and allows us to network our applicants with other accounts if we feel they are not a good fit for us.
  • Applicant tracking - it allows us to keep up with their status in the entire new hire process
  • Ease of use - iCIMS is very user-friendly
  • Organization - iCIMS is very clearly labeled and organized, so you never have to search too far for someone or something
  • Lagging - sometimes iCIMS lags out, although that could be our server and not the system itself.
  • Making offers - it requires multiple steps to make an offer. You have to hit "extend offer" and then close out and reopen the offer before you can send it. Again, that could just be our setup.
  • Color scheme - okay, it's rather boring. Just black and white. I'd love to see it more customizable to where we can use our personality while using the system.
  • We are able to reduce paper flow by having everything electronic
  • We have significantly improved our onboarding time due to the automation provided by iCIMS
  • With improving onboarding times, we have also improved employee retention, which in turn reduces the overall cost for recruiting
I feel like iCIMS is definitely the superior ATS. Of course, I did not have a say in my company switching to iCIMS (they were already in place when I came on board). However, given my experience with other systems such as ADP and Taleo, I feel like iCIMS is just overall better quality. It is much more user-friendly and customizable to meet our needs.
iCIMS is worth the investment for a large corporation. I wouldn't necessarily recommend it for smaller companies. It does well if you expect a high applicant flow for every role. It may not be worth the money if you only hire one or two people per year. Definitely consider the ROI when you consider this product.
