    Pros

    Ultimate is an amazing company to work for - it really starts with leadership. Scott Scherr, our CEO, started the company with a motto that hasn't changed even as we are a much larger organization. Treat your employees as you would like to be treated, and they will stay loyal. That motto will also promote customer retention because he and his co-founders figured out a long time ago what other companies/ corp leaders don't understand. Happy employees means happy customers.

    Cons

    it's hard to turn away the people who want to work here because there is a lot of enthusiasm for employment at our company

    Pros

    The culture is people first, and that is why I love coming to work every day. I have developed some great friendships in the years I have worked here. The benefits are another great reason to work at Ultimate Software -- 100% of medical insurance is paid by the company, work from home opportunities, and on and on. Training Dept is also outstanding, as we provide free training to our customers & internal employees.

    Cons

    The compensation is fair for the job I perform, but too many of our raises & benefits are team driven. Not that team goals are bad, but if you are excelling at your job, you feel as though you have nothing to show for it.
    Our Corporate Office enjoys a few more perks than branch offices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe that some managers do not have a good grasp of what I do day to day, but that could just be my perception. I think a lot of the time are accomplishments & efforts are not recognized through the company. In general, I think management does listen to me if I have a concern, and I appreciate that.

    Pros

    Family atmosphere among coworkers, and smiles on everyone's faces every single day. Our CEO began a culture of People First, meaning his employees come before everyone. This has a trickle down effect to our customers. The teams here take pride in what they do, and that comes from the top! I can't ever remember having a job that I love to come to everyday. From our benefits, to our wellness coach, our company takes care of us.

    Cons

    The need for virtual employees has increased, so we can't always get to speak to our coworkers face to face.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Management mindsets come from our CEO, who loves the people who work here. The open door policy is truly that. The doors are open to discuss anything, and I really see that here at Ultimate Software.

    Pros

    One of the best things about Ultimate is the culture. We are like a family here. We work very hard to take care of our customers, and the company works very hard to take care of us. The culture is exuded from the top down. Our CEO's values are family oriented. He walks the walk of what he speaks about when talking about Ultimate Software's cuture and values. The benefits are unmatched by anyone else that I've ever worked with. Scott is very approachable with anything you want to talk about with him, and he responds directly to any communications that you send to him. The Work Life Balance Structure is high priority here. I can go on and on, best career choice I've ever made. I am an UltiPeep for life!

    Cons

    I wish I had 2 of my manager. She is absolutely amazing. Although her schedule can get pretty hectic, she remains tangible. She always keeps us in the loop of her whereabouts if she is going to be away or delayed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, Keep making us happy, keep hearing and implementing our suggestions.

    Cons

    I honestly cannot think of any cons - only thought is that if you are not comfortable with being transparent and having close, open relationships with your boss and co workers, this is not the place for you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on how to scale the company, don't get stuck on doing things the same way we always have
