    Pros

    Great place to work and the culture is work hard play hard. Love what we do and we are a force in the Talent Management space..

    Cons

    We are growing fast and that requires enormous agility.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to promote Cornerstars within the company that are not necessarily interested in management. To some that is not of interest.

    Pros

    They give you the tools, training, and freedom to get your work done. You will succeed or fail on your own merits. They really believe in work hard play hard mentality, and the sense of support and teamwork is still there even for remote employees.

    Cons

    If you are the type of person who doesn't like to ramp up quickly, it could be a little daunting to start work here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked for the company for only couple of months however this is a great place to work Great company to work for, good benefits, excellent food and wonderful staff

    More structure when it comes to training staff on products. There is not a set course to take because you must self train yourself if you want to be a success at this company.

    Pros

    The Culture, people, and growth of this company are fantastic. Through fast growth they have been able to maintain a great culture for young professionals to grow into more senior roles.

    Cons

    With any growing company, there are growing pains and CSOD is no different. As the company grows quickly, processes need to be put into place and are not always perfect the first time around.

    Advice to Management

    So far the culture has remained great. If this can remain as the company grows in the next few years, your retention will remain at a high level.

    I have been working at Cornerstone OnDemand full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Cornerstone is an exceptional company. The culture and commitment to employees is first-rate and that translates into an organization that is dedicated to its clients success. The willingness to support, collaborate and partner are the best in my 20+ year career. Accountability and acknowledging your areas of improvement are very important- personal and professional growth are expected. The ability and willingness to innovate and push the boundaries of talent solutions is amazing to watch and be part of. Some of what we do is bleeding edge (I love it) and people and clients who gravitate towards this philosophy will be very pleased. As a remote employee, I am not privy to massages, yoga, free food et al. That is great stuff for my colleagues and it keeps them happy and motivated. When I make it to SM, about 5-6 times per year, it is energizing and fun (really it is). Client success is the definition of a "win" at CSOD. It really is about the customer. Making it right is what all of our collective work is targeted to.

    Cons

    If you are not a self-starter and not capable of growing, then Cornerstone is not going to be a fit for your career. You must be willing to extend yourself, make yourself vulnerable and willing to learn. I don't view this as a "Con" but some will. Just know that the organization looks for high achievers and if you aren't prepared to engage similarly, it won't work for you.

    Advice to Management

    None.
