Onboarding was always something that was a bit haphazard, and Donut helped us put into place a more consistent experience and make sure we weren't forgetting any important information. It made it easier to setup a longer term onboarding program (1-3 mos instead of a couple weeks) and made sure everyone got the best experience even if their manager had other things going on.

Pros:

Easy to use and setup great flows for be employees. Lots of options to send different kinds of messages or create introductions.

Cons:

Easier integration with HR systems

I've been using the Pairing feature from Donut for over a year, as a great tool for the team to get to know each other. Adding onboarding is a huge win - we were "hacking" pairing to help new team members meet people, but now we can structure such a better process.

Pros:

Really simple - and valuable to use - to use. Love the recommended flows. Great customer support.

Cons:

More reporting would be nice

I am remembering my days at the retail giant that is Best Buy. Onboarding there was both the best and the worst I've seen it. I wonder what a product like this could do for that process.

Pros:

Gosh I wish all jobs had this. I've never seen a real onboarding process that was consistent and useful. this seems to bridge that gap

Cons:

How can we get every company to use this?

We love Donut here at Jet! In a large organization Donut enables employees to expand their networks and meet people in a relaxed, stress-free way.

Pros:

Ease of use; Fun, engaging; Great for larger companies

Cons:

Donut could roll out customized settings per user

We've worked with Donut for a number of years now and rely on it to help our peopel onboard smoothly and effectively.

Pros:

Simple, easy to use and awesome support.

Cons:

Some folks find the notifcations hard to keep track of

The pairing feature, Donut's earlier bot, is another example of something easy and scalable that has had outsized benefits for my team.

Pros:

It's years of company culture and productivity research implemented in a usable process that scales.

Cons:

My new employer doesn't use Slack, so there's that.

Much recommended!

Pros:

As the VP, People for a growing NYC company, Donut Onboarding was an essential tool to properly onboard our new hire classes.

Cons:

I don't have it yet for my new company!
