This is what our customers had to say about Nestor

What do you like best about Nestor?

“All in one platform for skills management, performance, and career development”

The platform is user-friendly and highly customizable. The customer support is amazing – the team at Nestor always helps us adapt the system based on our needs. The skills hub area is a great way for us to be confident about the capabilities we have at an organizational level and is a transparent way for our employees to self-evaluate their skills, get feedback from their colleagues and see their progress over time.

What do you dislike about Nestor?

Not sure I have something critical to say at the moment. Would be helpful to be able to self-customize all the emails we send to our employees. The team at Nestor is responsive to feedback coming from their customers, so I expect us to have great product updates going forward.

What do you like best about Nestor?

“An essential platform to track how your team is doing and help with growth”

Great way to have a high-level view over what are the skills within the team and how to best out of it. It also helps that I can easily see how they progress and what a manager can do to better impact the trajectory of each individual.

It also helps that the team at Nestor is always quick to respond to feedback and work with you to implement features that would make your life easier as a manager.

What do you dislike about Nestor?

There aren’t any things that I personally dislike, but some of the team find notifications to be too frequent. I think once you have gone over the onboarding period you get used to them and can tweak them to work around your use case.
