    LOVE this product and the creators behind it . Would absolutely recommend to others!

    Pros

    Our company did not have an HR platform so starting with Bamboo was a no-brainer. The sales team and implementation team are fantastic, their self guided materials and videos are 2nd to none!

    Cons

    I wish there was an integration between Bamboo and QuickBooks. Hopefully that will happen eventually and make our payroll lives even easier!

    When it comes to personnel data, Bamboo handles everything. The HR department and upper management benefit greatly from this system's increased efficiency. The convenience of having everything in one place, rather than scattered everywhere.

    Pros

    The HR software is all-encompassing and user-friendly. Administrators and end users alike will appreciate the streamlined UI and pleasant UX they provide. My team has found the platform to be very user-friendly and productive.

    Cons

    It irritates me because any time I make an update to anything, it needs to be approved first, but I don't think this is something that happens everywhere; rather, I think it's more of a company permissions issue.

    BambooHR eliminates the hassles associated with application tracking while centralizing all of your HR processes in a single location for easy access.

    Pros

    BambooHR is an excellent human resources software. Two deployments in, I can attest to the software's friendliness and intuitiveness as well as the thoroughness of the process.

    Cons

    There isn't much to complain about, but the benefits and schedule management is severely lacking. Since we have workers in both the United States and Canada, we can't use the Payroll service.

    Overall Bamboo HR ticks a lot of the boxes for us but unless it improves the inflexibility means that it's unlikely we will continue to use it long-term as our company grows.

    Pros

    Bamboo HR is very easy to use for admin users and for the rest of employees, it is intuitive and simple. It contains a good amount of different features and covers most of the features you would want and it is more affordable than other providers.

    Cons

    I find Bamboo HR to be inflexible when it comes to make changes to suit our business, it often doesn't have the capability to adapt to suit what we need.
