Modern, user-friendly HR management software

As an employee using BrightHR, it has been a positive experience. I can't speak to the admin features, but my manager appears to be able to do everything he needs to without escalating further, and the user-side is well-designed and lays out key information simply. Everything works that way you think it should and it stores a range of useful data.

Pros

Clean, mostly well-laid out web interface makes most operations simple. A range of useful information including holiday allocation/remaining, details of your time at the company, a calendar of holidays and absences in your team.
All functions can also be carried out using the mobile app which works without problems.

Cons

No major complaints. As a user I have been able to find all information and features that I have needed to manage my HR account (mostly annual leave-related).

Response from BrightHR

Thank you for taking the time to post your review! Glad to hear you like the app too, let us know if you need any support in the future.

Data & money held hostage

My data and money is being held hostage. In short, they invoiced me and then their sales guy [sensitive content hidden] wanted more money and to upsell me on more services. When I declined, he cancelled my service as what they invoiced me didn't cover what I was getting. I wonder if I will get my data and money back but I doubt it if this is how they treat customers that have been with them for years. I am resentful of the time they have wasted but I did always want to try Breathe HR.

Pros

The app is simple and does the job. I just needed something to record annual leave and send reminders.

Cons

The harassment from their sales team. I didn't appreciate the aggressive sales approach or the blackmail that followed, which was ultimately followed through with.
