My overall experience has been very positive. Sympa has been a really important aspect of our company and the management of HR internally and getting that information out to employees. At my last company we didn't have anything like it, so it's been a huge help.

Pros

I like that the portal is completely customized for our organization. When I log in, I have access to tons of resources, a company directory (we're global so it's really helpful), and my business goals, PDP, sales quotas, etc.

Cons

The user interface could be a bit cleaner, but overall it's really great!

Reasons for Choosing Sympa

Previous software didn't meet the expectations. No options to customize and because we are not a multinational, we were not an important customer for ADP.

Reasons for Switching to Sympa

Flexibility, price vs. functionality
