    Pros

    This is a great company to work for. Great culture, awesome benefits, and tons of room for growth if you are willing to put in a little hard work. I left a really awesome position before coming to Paycom but in the short months I've been here, I'm so glad I did!!

    Cons

    Nothing that I can think of at this point.

    Pros

    Catered lunches, clear cut upward mobility, get what you put into it, $1 health insurance, amazing work culture, everyone is super friendly

    Cons

    You'll never leave Oklahoma because you'll never leave Paycom. (I want to leave Oklahoma)

    Advice to Management

    Give TL's some clear instructions on how to direct new hires in training, and if you do already, make sure TL's are communicating this to the new hires.

    Pros

    In Oklahoma City there is a lot of Oil and Gas opportunities that come and go. I love the stability that Paycom can offer. The perks are amazing with a beautiful facility delicious lunches (only $4) and most of my team takes advantage of the boot camp at lunch! Everyone here smiles and is very happy. The leadership group is so encouraging and motivating to everyone. They offer very progressive compensation plans as you finish your training programs and take on more. I love seeing all of the employee referrals that start. You want to be friends with the people you work beside so it is great that Paycom recognizes this and they pay a $500 referral fee! I have already earned $1000!! Our sales force is so impressive. They are some of the smartest and most strategic minded professionals I have ever seen. I wish I could sell because I would want to be one of them for the money and just to be part of that team!

    Cons

    Compared to my last company this place is amazing and I really can't think of anything that I would consider a con. If I have to write something I would say maybe create another exit from the facility so it isn't so busy at the end of the day.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing whatever it is that you have been doing to make this company great!

    Pros

    Major pro about this company is the constant training and culture. Trainings are held by managers in the office and at a national sales training level. You'll also find that the CSO is involved in training as well so that shows a lot about the company. My new hire experience was the great, and it's cool to see young people flourish. My manager was young and inspiring. Even their director of sales training is very young, but the woman is a complete BADASS, probably ranks in as top most impressive people at the company. The people are awesome and the pay is amazing! They really value culture here and you see it be talked about constantly.

    Cons

    There should be more people in the legal dept., it's hard depending on one person. More flexibility in pto time would be nice. Creating more sales career paths, your only option now that pays well is sales manager or regional.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Advice to Management

    Awesome job! Great Leaders and Supervisors like Jason and Alison are awesome to work with! Chad (C Ray that is) is by far the best person I've ever had the pleasure to work for. He inspires his department to do better and makes us feel like family. He makes us proud to be part of such an amazing company.

    Pros

    We have some of the best perks around. We are growing when other companies are laying off and reducing compensation plans. Our value proposition to employees is extremely strong (we promote from within, our training programs are top notch, our comp plans reward those who commit themselves to life long learning and personal development). In the Midwest we are a software company competing at the national level to dominate the Human Capital Management industry. I am a person who thrives on the passion and enthusiasm or our leaders. They don't have to be here because financially they are all set for life, but they continue to show up and push themselves to be better. Our Executives love to see the rest of us grow and have success. Our CEO plays basketball and has lunch with all of the employees!!! People get promoted almost every month. I know this because at our monthly luncheons and quarterly company meetings we recognize them along with work anniversaries and birthdays. I have worked other places and Paycom is by far the best culture! Where else does the entire company get an all expense paid trip to a 5 star hotel with awards, a concert and all kinds of fun events for an evening?

    Cons

    People still don't know about us. Our brand isn't strong enough yet for people to understand who we are and what we can offer them professionally. Our marketing needs to be bigger locally and nationally. The oil and gas companies are laying off and yet people are still applying with them rather than Paycom- that is our fault! If we want to grow spend the money to let people know about us! I want people to be excited about me working at Paycom rather than my friends who are at the other places in town.

    Advice to Management

    I believe and I have worked at several other large companies that our management team is one of the strongest around at the very top. Internal promotions are amazing but don't be afraid to bring in new blood, even if they rock the boat a little, new ideas and perspective is always good. Continue to focus on growth and start to evolve with the growth. Some of our ways might have worked at 500 employees but if we want to really explode we might reconsider some or our hiring practices and marketing limitations. I am excited to see where we are in 5 years!

    Pros

    Culture is unreal. You wake up excited to go to work every day of every year. Team atmosphere is like a family. Unlimited earning potential- unlike any other comp plan. Opportunity for growth is incredible! You control your success and ultimately your career with hard work and a decision to succeed. The company takes care of us. Example, our health insurance is $1 each pay period. Presidents club is incredible, and is bonus PTO. You will make more money than you know what to do with.

    Cons

    Poor vacation in first year, but if your career would have a delayed start if they gave any more time.

    Advice to Management

    Smaller territories and more reps. This allows you to see who can make things happen, and territories are more thoroughly worked. Also the more reps you have, the more opportunity for revenue.
