We use Bamboo HR and it does a lot of this but not all. Having a quality intranet is important and having it integrated is as well. We use multiple solutions to accomplish the same thing but obviously this looks great and functions great :)

BambooHR appears to me to be the best, for SMBs. ZenPayroll is also great.

I’ve used BambooHR before and thought it was very easy and intuitive. They added payroll last year. The integrated ATS is a nice bonus. The only con I would say is there is no time and attendance piece if you want to track hourly employees. They integrate with 3rd party vendors for this though. In my experience almost every platform lacks one thing you want, you just have to prioritize your needs. I think it’s a great platform for small businesses.

We use BambooHR. It's pretty good, I think it covers most of what you're doing. We don't use their Applicant Tracking, we have a separate recruiting app for that. We also use a separate app for feedback/review cycles. I know you want one app that does all the things, but sometimes you want something more specialized.

I've heard good things about BambooHR. They're reasonably priced and work well with small to mid size companies.

We just implemented BambooHR and I really like it. Great automated workflows, self service, and customizable reporting. They have nonprofit and volume discounts.
