Overall Satisfaction with iCIMS Talent Acquisition Software Suite

Our company uses iCIMS Talent Acquisition Software Suite for onboarding and for job requisitions and postings. We also manage all of our candidates in iCIMS. We use it across the whole organization to recruit new hires. It gives us easy access to the candidates who apply to each position, and we can manage our job listings on iCIMS. ICIMS has a lot of capabilities, it's just taking the time to learn what it can do for your company.
  • It is easy to house all candidates in one system. It has all the features you would need as a company to move the candidate through the recruiting process and create your own workflow within the system. You can easily move candidates to different job postings and you can add notes to candidates' profiles.
  • You can customize your onboarding and recruiting documents to your company. It's easy to assign documents to employees or candidates, and you can have them easily electronically view and acknowledge documents.
  • Reports are easy to run and pull on iCIMS. You don't need the system to sync overnight like other systems, everything is done in real time.
  • Our recruiting department relies heavily on iCIMS, and there have been times where iCIMS has been completely down for hours. It's hard for them to do their job when the system they use does not work at times.
  • There are a lot of capabilities in iCIMS, but it's hard to learn all of it without the proper training.
  • It's hard to customize the reports to how you want it. They have default reports, but if you want it more customized to your company, it's not as user-friendly as the standard reports.
  • It allows us to easily have all of our candidates in one system.
  • Reporting is not the best, but it is sufficient for our medium-sized company.
  • When ICIMS is working through bugs and the system is down, it slows down our business, as our Recruiting department must wait until it's resolved.
Our company has also tried the ADP recruiting management system. It was more difficult to navigate through candidates, but it was easy to create profiles in ADP once we found the right candidate. We stayed with iCIMS as it was easier to keep everyone in the system and it was easier to post multiple jobs through iCIMS.
ICIMS Talent Acquisition Software Suite is well suited for a small to medium sized company. It was easy for our managers to learn the basics of the software. They could easily navigate through candidates who applied to our job positions. I would not recommend it for larger companies who rely heavily on reporting. If you run into issues, it's also hard to reach a representative immediately.
