Overall Satisfaction with SAP SuccessFactors

SAP SuccessFactors is being used across the whole company. We use it for Performance reviews, both Mid-Year and Full-Year. We built competencies into the system so that when an employee is going through the process, they can rate themselves on a scale of 1 to 5 along with comments they have relating it. Also, when an employee puts their yearly goals into the system, they can comment on them both during the midyear and full-year review. I also use it for posting positions on our site and other sites. Within SAP SuccessFactors, it stores all the candidates that applied, and I can share them with the hiring manager along with moving along the process and sending emails to the candidates.
  • Candidate Communication and tracking
  • Performance Management
  • Goal documentation
  • Overall look of the platform
  • Ease of use for both admin and employees
  • Overall Tracking of possible candidates and the ease of recruiting
  • Posting automatically to over job boards
The overall platform could use the updates, so the overall look of it seems more modern. Also, the number of possible customizations could be made more simple to implement. SAP SuccessFactors does have a helpline that is helpful and free. On a positive note, it is beneficial in our performance reviews and recruiting efforts.

SAP SuccessFactors is well suited for performance management and the recruiting process. However, it has tons of capabilities within the platform, but a lot of them are either not easy to find or do not work to the best of their abilities.
