    I have been a very happy yammer user ever since it was implemented in our organization.
    It helps enhance productive communication and collaboration among employees from various departments
    Knowledge grow multiple ways when it is shared. Its integration with other Microsoft applications is seamless.

    Pros

    The clean user interface is easy to navigate and the feed is intuitive
    Great tool to notify important announcements within organization like new product launches , regulatory changes and emergencies.
    It helps to enhance leadership engagement, from top management to all employees of the organization
    Secure platform to discuss about confidential projects among team members.
    Poll is another great advantage of yammer, entire company can participate in polls

    Cons

    Though the user interface is familiar, sorting posts by date requires bit of effort
    Additionally, searching for a topic is difficult
    The mobile application needs improvement and the user interface needs a revamp

    Private social media

    Reviewed on 2021/09/08

    Pros

    Yammer is a intranet social media that run privately, among the workers of my organization. We have use it for sharing news and memo of our department or organization. We can have a private group that only our department use, or the public forum wheres everyone on the organization can freely communicate with each other.

    Cons

    Yammer is getting obsolete, as nowadays, no one have use it anymore. There are not new update of feature for the software, so we have lost interest on it. We only use it for to check update from our Administration department, any not using it for anything else anymore.

    Not a big fan of Yammer

    Reviewed on 2019/02/21

    Pros

    It is somewhat helpful in that you can get responses from people you don't interact with on a daily basis. Our company did a lip sync challenge and that worked well on Yammer with videos posted working seamlessly.

    Cons

    Finally, after more than a year of my company using Yammer, you can access it with one click. Up until this week, one had to enter their work email and password TWICE! and our email addresses are very long. One of the pages you had to enter the email on had a huge button for "sign up" Yammer and a link in the text to sign on. So most of us signed up over and over which led to getting numerous emails each time yammer sent one out. There are over 5,000 employees in my organization and they are using Yammer as the sole source of information to the employees. Most items are seen by less than 200 people, and this over a year after yammer was instituted! So I'm not sure if it is Yammer that is the problem or if the problem is more in how my company set it up.

    Great for community building

    Reviewed on 2023/04/06

    Pros

    Yammer creates a sense of community within the organization, helping to build a strong corporate culture and improve employee engagement and it makes it easy for employees to collaborate on projects and share information across departments and teams.

    Cons

    Integrating Yammer with other systems and tools can be challenging, requiring additional IT resources and expertise and With so much information being shared on Yammer, it can be difficult to filter out the noise and find the information you need.
