    Micromanaging managers and broken promises

    National Sales Support (Former Employee) Arlington Heights, IL

    ProsPromising company and nice working environment.

    ConsBelittling and condescending inside sale manager, little communications between different departments, little to no marketing material to use.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReevaluate your management. They're holding you back on sales, not helping. Recognize talent and move them forward, not everything done can be measured so if you had good management in place they could see that.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Dial for dollars

    National Sales Support (Former Employee) Arlington Heights, IL

    ProsIf you are right out of college and have no bills to pay besides a cell phone bill then this job is perfect! But be prepared to make only a little more than minimum wage. Decent software, but oversell it to be much better than it actually is.

    ConsLow base pay and high quota to hit. Commission structure is very poor, be prepared to only make a few hundred dollars in commission a month even if you are the top rep. NO JOKE. Micromanaging managers that constantly critique you on how you go about your approach to get appointments. This is a telemarketing job where you have to make over a 100 dials a day and must read from a script. Nothing more than a dial for dollars telemarketing job that offers benefits.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBeing a top producer at this position does not mean that you will transition into being an effective outside sales rep, so don't focus on just the numbers only when looking to promote. Also, bashing other payroll companies is not professional.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGrowing Company so they seem open to change and improvements, pretty good benefits especially for onsite employees.

    ConsOversell clients, not enough support staff, not proactive but rather reactive. Starting to see a lot of poor office politics in management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to hire more staff to support the growing company needs to upkeep customer service, work/life balance is very poor

    Paylocity is working on it as they grow, but there's problems.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros- Small company atmosphere permits you to connect with your coworkers
    - Feel like a part of something neat as the company grows

    Cons-Too much fighting between departments and not enough cooperation
    -Not very many places to go within the company as it is small.
    -Compensation/benefits not competitive when comparing similar job duties at other companies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake the company to the next level and work together as a team.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
