    I worked at Paylocity full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    There is a true team environment at Paylocity. They respect diversity in their employees. Promotion from within is standard. They have a true commitment to training and employee development. They host many employee events including free meals and snacks.

    Cons

    For Account Management, the pay is just too low for the amount of work, especially at year end. They recently forced Time & Attendance support on everyone for no additional pay. I would still be there save for the subsistence level wages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Many of the changes you put into place for 7/1/14 were exactly what was needed. The final step is to start paying people real salaries and bring in professionals to handle the clients. This is the final step needed to become world class.

    Pros

    Some of the best people I've had the opportunity to work with. Very passionate workplace without a lot of egos. Tons of internal opportunities to work on may different technology stacks and challenges.

    Cons

    Lots of new way verses old way infighting. Slow to adopt new technologies or patterns. Pay is also a little low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the new verses old politics and infighting. Increase developer compensation. Keep moving forward, company has a bright future.

    I have been working at Paylocity full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    During the annual sales kick-off meeting, a District Sales Manager made an acceptance speech wherein she mentioned her top three best life decision's: Marrying her husband, having her children and joining Paylocity. I couldn't agree more! Paylocity has achieved what many companies can only dream of creating - A relaxed and happy atmosphere in which each employee fully believes in Paylocity's mission.

    Cons

    As an individual who was recruited from a company who did not believe in their own philosophy and the power of a strong work/life balance, I can't say enough wonderful thing about Paylocity!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As Paylocity continues to grow, make sure the current employees grow with it.

    Pros

    relaxed work environment, very casual dress code, company is growing

    Cons

    There is a lot of work, so if your a slacker or not good at what you do, not a good fit. Communication between departments could be better

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Arlington Heights, IL

    I have been working at Paylocity full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay for industry
    Casual dress work environment
    Some nice perks (Lunches, Free good coffee!)
    Keeps employees appraised of company roadmap
    constant and consistant growth

    Cons

    Getting much too corporate - have lost the family attitude they had replaced with a more "yessir" environment
    Staff turnover increasing
    certain levels of mid-senior management are just plain bad
    lack of departmental communication (still)
    The blame game is starting to flourish as the demands for more productivity has increased

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Those who seem the most helpful are only helping themselves, hiring "good on paper" managers is not always the best thing to do. Pay attention to the departments who demand a lot and blame everyone else for their shortcomings.

    I have been working at Paylocity full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Casual dress code, co-workers that are willing to assist and teach one another.

    Cons

    There is a lack of emphasis in intra-office communication, particularly between departments. If there were more of an emphasis on critical thinking skills and focus on internal communication, it would increase overall productivity and employee satisfaction.

    A robust and rapidly expanding company. Great opportunities if you can handle the heat.

    I have been working at Paylocity

    Pros

    -The company is essentially half payroll company, half software company. On the one side, you get the peaks and valleys nature of the payroll business. On the other hand, the environment is real laid back and you are not micro-managed as long as you are sufficiently getting your work done.

    -There is much room for professional growth and many skills to be learned if you have the drive

    -Game room in the building

    Cons

    -Cross-department communication can be very frustrating as the company works through its growing pains

    -Some might prefer a more professional atmosphere

    -Anybody who has worked at a payroll company knows year-end is hell. Expect to work like a dog from November - February

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employee recognition employee recognition. We need more!
