Overall Satisfaction with Oracle HCM Cloud (including Taleo)

Oracle HCM is used for all HR functions like recruiting, staffing, performance appraisal, absence management, career development, etc. It is an essential tool for everyone in the organization and is used almost every day by everyone. It has made it convenient to access the system from anywhere in the world. Now one can even apply for leaves or fill appraisals from the convenience of home. It is also used as the primary tool to hire people both inside and outside of the organization.
  • It makes hiring an omnichannel process by reaching the candidates through various mediums like social media, talent exchange platform, job portals, etc.
  • It generates insights about the employees and can also help in predicting which employees are about to leave the organization.
  • It helps in pre-screening the candidates by using video interviews and other aptitude tests so that only relevant candidates come and meet the hiring managers.
  • It does not allow candidates to apply using their LinkedIn profiles. It would save a lot of time at candidate's end and a lot of extra information gets captured through the LinkedIn profile.
  • It's difficult to locate all the candidates that fulfill a particular criteria. Somehow search results are not exhaustive.
  • User Interface is not at all intuitive. It takes a lot of time to get used to the system. Applying for leave is also a multi-step process.
Oracle HCM is suited for multinational corporations and large organizations where it is not practically feasible for an HR department to cater to employees' mundane requests. For example, in order to get a bonafide certificate, one does not need to bother HR people and simply can get it from the Oracle HCM solution. Even the compensation is updated inside Oracle HCM and employees can access it from anywhere. The tax calculation is however not integrated with Oracle HCM which is a miss.
