Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"It is a complete suite of solutions and features. Compared to other solutions which are more niche solutions, which may be as good as Cornerstone or even better in certain parts of it, like discerning user experience. You will not find another solution that has the same completeness of features in all different areas of learning.""What I like the most about Cornerstone is that it is agile. It has good built-in processes and the implementation is rapid.""The most valuable features are the Playlists, Learning Assignment Tool, Earner Experience Platform, Machine Learning, and Reporting 2.0.""Combining everything together, our on-time completions have gone from the mid-sixty percentile to over 99% on-time completion.""Stability and scalability are good. They have four releases every year of which learning is a big portion of that. They're constantly refining and defining and they're embedding a lot of new technology into it all the time."

"We have fewer systems, less manual data entry, and less processing.""Performance and good usability are the two most valuable features of this solution.""The solution is extremely stable.""It's actually a cloud-native solution and based on the community for development. It is a very good open architecture and able to interconnect with other systems. And it is very stable and very fast in terms of response.""This product is leaps and bounds above the competition. Part of the reason is that it is built with modern technology. It has no legacy coding in it at all.""The user interface is good and very easy to use.""The platform itself is very robust and I generally like the reporting and analytics capability.""It's intuitive, a very usable tool and it's easy to find the data you're looking for."

Cons
"In the next release, I would like to see improvement in the dashboards and reporting.""In the next release, I would like to see a Hybrid architecture and to be able to customize the look and feel.""In general, some of the portal pages have an outdated look and feel.""The automated ticketing system for technical support often has a response time that is quite long, which is something that should be improved.""Could use more robust reporting or more flexibility and scalability around the reporting side."

More Cornerstone Learning Cons »

"There is a lot of complexity in the configuration of this solution.""It has missing functionalities. Specific countries, like Germany, didn't have the option to do payroll. Now we need to look for another product for HR.""Setting up reports can be a bit tricky.""Reporting systems should be improved. If you want to report it on paper, if you want something more BI oriented, more high level predictive or more data-driven, it should be improved.""It is good that much of the development is based on community input but often that can lead to details being ignored and small, nagging issues are ignored.""The security console should be made less complex.""The UI, UX (user experience) is very bad. It is not very interactive.""It's possible that the way things are integrated could be improved"

"Workday is an expensive solution.""You have the license fee per module, and then you have a kind of annual training fee, which is a kind of add-on. I wouldn't say it is exhaustive; it is minor. Licensing is pretty transparent for most of the part.""The pricing is good from an HR perspective, although management gets upset after spending $500,000 a year, every year.""Its price is pretty high. It is more expensive than what is offered by other competitors in the market."
