    Pros

    The pay is decent but not enough

    Cons

    The company hires people not fit to work in a office, very mentally unstable individuals. Extremely poor management and corporate ethics. The software being offered as a service is defective. Lastly the training is terrible. DO NOT ACCEPT A OFFER OF EMPLOYMENT FROM THIS COMPANY.

    Pros

    None!!!! Very poorly ran company I wish there was something positive to say.

    Cons

    Dont trust the unskilled upper management. Very poor salary vs. Other HCM companies. Seen some of the best sales pro's asked to leave even when they are top producers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get real sales managers that actually can and have sold anythung. Need to lead by example

    Pros

    Leadership belongs in Hollywood as the acting is impeccable. The Ceridian Kool-Aid sipping has been mastered. The mid tier leadership is exceptional as they are truly the buffers that quite frankly should run the company. If you can work here, you can work anywhere.....

    Cons

    The platform is not unique as every provider offers the same. No Talent management capabilities and the Human Resource functionality is fair at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire leadership that knows payroll and understands the meaning of flawless execution. The implementation is toe curling.

    Pros

    None that I can think of. Poorly run. I'm surprised their doors are still open to be honest.

    Cons

    Everything. Terrible management, no training, tied to your desk. No recognition. The whole experience was overwhelmingly awful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to who your putting into middle management. My manager there made my life a living hell.

    Miss-managed by executives who should have been replaced after they failed to implement their ERP system.

    Pros

    The company had great benefits with above average compensation.

    Cons

    Company is miss managed and does not have clear direction on how correct and address growth. Culture needs to improve in certain areas to be consistent across the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work life balance needs to be addressed or work force will leave. They addressed this issue at corporate with a game room which is used infrequently. Working conditions need to improve at all levels.

    I have been working at Ceridian full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    All leadership is accessible right up to the CEO and will get involved in all aspects of resolving issues.

    Cons

    Constant turnover in leadership due to lack of realistic vision. A lot of smoke and mirrors as it smells a lot like the Dot Bomb error. Lots of good ideas and technology that look slick but poor execution and implementations that just does not equate to the hype.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell Ceridian to a large Payroll company that understands HR/payroll and knows how to implement the solution. Hire senior management that understands the HCM world as opposed to a bunch of number cruncher s and technology geeks.

    Ceridian isn't a company where your career can grow, it's a dismal place.

    I worked at Ceridian

    Pros

    There aren't many pros, Ceridian isn't a good company to continue your career. The company is slowly going under.

    Cons

    No annual raises or incentives for employees. I wouldn't recommend any recent graduate to continue their career at Ceridian.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Before trying to sale Dayforce HCM to clients, make sure that you have actually implemented clients into the product. Give your employees an actual raise...give your employees a 2% percent raise is a slap I'm the face.

    I worked at Ceridian full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The Bloomington office is nicely located to airport and mall.

    Cons

    micro-management. Managers don't value employees experience and skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I see that Ceridian is trying to hire again here in the twin cities, and just want to note it's an awful environment to work in.

    It's unlikely that things have much improved in two years. The general problem was that management would make technical decisions without input from development staff. Most of these decisions were poorly informed, either due to a lack of understanding of what was happening on the ground, or outdated technical experience. As such, they led to failure.

    I left before Dayforce took over, but the feedback I received from others who had had dealings with them was they were the same way. The result has been a stagnant environment using outdated practices, with a reliance upon nights and weekends to make things work at the last minute.

    It's an ok environment for a junior developer just starting out, as you'll get experience with a wide variety of tools but don't plan on staying there more than a year.
