Overall Satisfaction with LinkedIn Talent Solutions

I am an HR department of one, which means I am the sole recruiting manager as well. LinkedIn Talent Solutions is my primary source for reaching passive candidates, as well as posting job ads on a pay-per-click basis.
  • It's easy to create and save candidate searches
  • LinkedIn Talent Solutions is by far the best source of potential candidates, both in quantity and quality
  • Easy to use, intuitive UX
  • The cost is significant, especially for the more robust options
  • You can't easily collaborate with team members unless they have a license as well
  • Support tickets can take awhile to resolve, I've had one (bug with spend tracking) that took 2 months to resolve
  • Large candidate pool
  • Ease of use
  • Value
  • Reduces hiring time
  • Largest candidate pool
  • Highest quality candidates
Again, LinkedIn Talent Solutions outranks other recruiting platforms in candidate pool and candidate quality. I have tried many other job boards, demoed other platforms, and though I've successfully found candidates elsewhere, LinkedIn Talent Solutions is my #1 go to. It gets me the highest number of candidates, and makes passive candidate searching pretty easy. I also appreciate the integration with my current ATS (TrakStar).

LinkedIn Talent Solutions is one of the only recruiting sources I rely on for quality candidates. It's clear that it is the largest network of professional candidates, which lets me feel confident that I'm using my recruiting budget wisely. I appreciate that there are multiple options to choose from to suit a variety of companies/budgets, and there is true value in LinkedIn Talent Solutions as an investment, however even the most inexpensive option could still be too pricey for smaller companies.
