Overall Satisfaction

  • Candidate View includes the resume which allows for quick decision making on suitability of candidate.
  • The reports generated from Kenexa worked well and easy enough to configure.
  • The flow to the careers page was simple.
  • Posting to external sites was easy to do.
  • The version we had did not include social network sharing and that would have been nice.
  • The version we used didn't support .docx or .pdf but I'm sure that has changed now.
  • Some functionality, like template creation, needed engineering customization and would have been nice to do ourselves.
  • Workflow jump to the next step would have been a nice feature.
  • We definitely had more efficiency in reviewing resumes than other systems provided.
  • Very little down time for upgrades or issues which provided more efficiency.
It was extremely expensive and there are lower cost systems out there with greater functionality that would be better from an ROI standpoint.
Depends on size of company, if a bigger company Kenexa worked well but for a smaller one it was too pricey.
