    We monitor and manage our whole team using the software. Major objectives to weekly check in. It is our #1 people tool.

    Pros

    Super easy to use - no 'training' necessary (even though it is available). Get's the team to think every week about what's important, how they can be intentional with their time, what they want to achieve and how to bring ideas to the table. The performance management software takes conversations to where they should be - improving the working life of employees. It's development focussed and doesn't take long to do. The new homepage allows each team member to use the product daily to stay on top of what's important. We use the rating out of 5 each week as a key company metric to get a sense of how our team are feeling about work.

    Cons

    We recently engaged a points based recognition program which I fear will replace the high5's. I'm wondering if this could be integrated somehow as the high5's were a real motivator for the team. From what I can tell, there is no analysis tool at the end of a review period to analyse the 'manager only' data so see what ratings were provided across the board. It would be great to use a talent rating in the system too which showed where our high performers were.

    My first experience was as a user and I remember getting the invitation to join and I was like, "Great, another HR tool." Once I got in there and learned about the 15Five mantra, I immediately loved it and started to take over ownership and expanding it throughout every organization I have worked at since. As in my Pros section, I have seen every team that adopts 15Five grow from the individual and up.

    Pros

    The "annual review" and the like are very invaluable to the individual and become an exercise in repetition. 15Five takes what that same concept tries to accomplish and incorporates it into smaller, admin defined spans. With each [bi]weekly 15Five, the Team can focus on their priorities and align them with the overarching objectives/goals (individual, department, and/or company-wide). As a result, the growth path is managed at early stages and progress is recorded throughout the process to document each team member. I have used 15Five at 3 companies and have seen my teams improve within a short period each time. It does take effort but once it becomes the norm, progress just starts running!

    Cons

    There are always going to be features that are wanted and/or desired in any software. 15Five has a lot right out of the gate with a lot of the features I would have liked to see now in production and currently getting worked into my setup. I honestly don't have anything negative regarding 15Five as a software nor as a company.

    I was forced to use this for a while at a previous job and found that it interrupted my workflow, wasted my time, and was generally a nuisance.

    Pros

    I'm not going to lie, I hated using this software. It facilitates the kind of micro managing, having meetings about meetings style of working within a team that I hate about non-profit life, and am glad to have left behind.

    Cons

    I just never got anything valuable from using this software. I don't understand the need for it, and I found using it to be a giant waste of time.

    Response from 15Five

    Hey, Tyler!

    Thanks for taking time to share your feedback with 15Five - we really appreciate it.

    I'm truly sorry to hear you didn't have a positive experience with our platform. We certainly don't advocate for a culture of micro-management; rather, we want to help organizations help their people become their best selves.

    I would love to speak with you to understand how we could have made your experience, and in turn every 15Five-er's experience, better.

    Would you be open to having a conversation about this? If so, please share your availability and preferred method for me to contact you.

    Best,
    Mike Siemasz
    Sr. Customer Marketing Manager, 15Five

    Use it as your team thermometer. Help ensure homeostasis keeps it 100.

    Pros

    Great product for keeping taking the 'temperature' of your team week-by-week. Team members can submit answers, comments, etc. to various topics, questions, etc. to their direct reports. Folks can even give shout outs to their co-workers. This allows managers and higher-levels to track the attitude, morale, needs, etc of a team through feedback and ratings of how things went that week.

    Cons

    I felt like the product could get monotonous over time. Perhaps it could work better to be more engaging long-term.
