    Pros

    -The company is a great company to work for. So much growth, tons of opportunities, great benefits. Even as they grow, they still are very concerned with the employees and don't forget how they contributed to the success. Very rare for companies that grow this fast.

    Cons

    No complaints .Any problems that an employee may have, management is very willing to listen and find solutions. As long as they are realistic complaints of course.

    Culture and Sales Rock Stars

    Current Employee - District Sales Manager  in  Nashville, TN
    Current Employee - District Sales Manager in Nashville, TN

    Pros

    The culture here is simply amazing! Those who work alongside me seem to have a common purpose and most, like me, came from the Big name companies like ADP, Paychex and others like them. Having a company you can believe in goes a long way and we know we are supported with a product that blows the competition out of the water and the personal support we need to deliver on our promises. We aren't the "Jack of all trades" and focus on being the best in breed at Payroll and HR while supporting our partners who do what they do best.

    In the outside sales position, we have the tools we need and because we have such an amazing product, you want to pick of the phone and dial to expose as many businesses to Paylocity.

    Cons

    Haven't found any that I can speak of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As you're doing now, continue to celebrate the people and the culture. That is what will continue to drive the results.

    Pros

    Fast paced and great culture. Leading edge technology. Upper management is very approachable and knowledgeable.

    Cons

    With the fast growth there is not a lot of structure but that seems to be changing. Some growing pains but nothing that is too painful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the company growing and on track.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Chicago, IL
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

    Pros

    Where to begin: the culture and work/life balance; our technology and consistent innovation; growth opportunities and never feeling like a number; our open door policy and exposure to the executives; the faith and trust I have in our leaders; and the genuine, consultative approach we take with our prospects/clients.

    Cons

    I hope we maintain our steady growth rate now that we've gone public. Again, though, I have faith in our leaders.

    Pros

    The people I work with truly make me enjoy going to work everyday. I have made great friends working here and truly enjoy being at work because of them. We have a great work-life balance, definitely with a work hard play hard mentality. There are constantly different games and contests to keep us motivated throughout the week. Management is very easy to talk to and they really care about your individual success - they are always there to offer advice but do not micromanage which is nice.

    Cons

    The position is certainly hard at times and can be grueling - definitely a position meant for people seeking an entry-level position and to be in less than 2 years, but they do not sugar coat that from the beginning which I appreciate.

    The Best Company I Have Ever Worked For! Major Growth Potential!

    Current Employee - Recruitment Coordinator  in  Arlington Heights, IL
    Current Employee - Recruitment Coordinator in Arlington Heights, IL

    Pros

    I have never worked at a company that cares about their employees as much as Paylocity does. I started in the National Sales Support department and I was on the phones making cold calls for over a year. I did a great job and my managers saw that and gave me the opportunity to move up. As long as you put in the work here, there is growth potential. I got promoted to Recruiting and I love it. My managers at National Sales Support gave me the tools and the ongoing training I needed to succeed and move up in the company internally.

    Cons

    I have nothing bad to say about this company. Paylocity has kept their word and gave me the job growth that I was looking for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on giving the employee’s the tools they need to succeed and in the end you will succeed as well.

    Best company I've ever worked for!!!!

    Current Employee - Account Manager  in  Lake Mary, FL
    Current Employee - Account Manager in Lake Mary, FL

    Pros

    Benefits, pay and all that but the company culture is like nothing I've experienced. I've been in the workforce over 30 years and have never worked for a company that genuinely encourages their employees to not get stressed over work and have a healthy balance between work and life. They provide continuous training on every subject from software updates to 'Selling Yourself in an Interview'. Everywhere I've worked my co-workers always complained about different aspects of the company or their supervisor, but I have yet to hear someone say 'I hate my job' or anything close.

    Cons

    Normal growing pains - software upgrades, heavy workloads, policy changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up and I'll never leave!

    Stable, but growing software company with a ton of opportunity

    Current Employee - Software Engineer
    Current Employee - Software Engineer

    Pros

    The software development team is one of the smartest, most technically savy development teams I've ever seen. We use the latest technologies and collaborate really well. The Software Engineering department is a first-class citizen with major senior leadership support. Tools and technologies that developers need are purchased without management nickle and dime-ing licenses. The new Agile model is working really well, and developers feel invested in the products they produce.

    Cons

    Still a lot of legacy code and technical debt - but we are working to alleviate it, and most development is done using newer technology stacks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay committed to Agile and allowing the product teams to operate semi-autonomously. I love this company!
