Overall Satisfaction

I did use Jobvite, I loved the interface and all of it's functions. It is MUCH better than Taleo. Unfortunately I had to cut costs and I preferred using LinkedIn Recruiter, which is expensive. WIth the additional $10k cost per year for Jobvite, the combined costs were above my budget. I am currently using Taleo for $2k per year but am considering using a start up with similar features called GatherDocs.
  • Love the interface and the fact you can integrate with your company brand
  • Integrates with Social Media so current employees can utilize the service
  • Like the ability to share info with hiring managers easiy
  • Cost isn't too bad for what it offers, but unfortunately I can't afford it with my budget. That's the only weakness I can think of.
  • Better customer service
  • Faster lead conversion
  • Increased employee Efficiency
  • Increased employee referrals
  • Taleo,Kennexa,Gatherdocs,icms,SmartRecruiters
I would use it again if I worked for a larger mid sized company with a larger budget. If you are a huge corporation, I believe Kennexa is the best choice. Jobvite for smaller or midsized companies is recommended. There are lots of other start up ATS but most are unproven yet.
Well suited for most scenarios and most companies, but if you're a small company with a small budget it's not cost effective.
