    Pros

    Incredible benefits & great culture. Management promotes Work/Life balance and training. The company has grown from 1,075 to 2,000 in 4.5 years I've been there (2010 ~ 2014) and continues...

    Cons

    If you are in a technical role, there is plenty of room for growth. However, if you are in Project Management or Process Improvement, the career path isn't defined, at least not yet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As the company continues to grow, there needs to be clear definition for career growth not just in the technical arena, but all areas.

    Best Benefits Around!

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Best benefits around - 401k match of 35% on entire contribution, medical and dental benefits paid 100% by company for employee and dependents. Very liberal telecommuting options.

    Cons

    Company runs lean and has high expectations. Not necessarily a con/problem, if you enjoy a fast pace. If you're strictly a 9:00-5:00 worker, or a clock-watcher, this isn't the place for you!

    Pros

    The company understands that happy workers benefit the company. Tons of perks in office that you can take advantage of: Breakfast days, massages, and ice cream on certain days. Not only this, but their hours are flexible, giving you the opportunity to work at home or travel on the road, given what you are into.

    Cons

    Due to most employees telecommuting, many of the people you work with you never meet face to face

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great work!

    Pros

    Pays well, good people, free ice cream truck and barbecues are frequent, the hours are great--best hours I've had a developer yet.

    Cons

    South Florida is not brimming with technical opportunities, so you feel a bit isolated as a developer in this community. Still, if you're looking to live near the beach and make enough money to enjoy it, this is a place you should consider.

    Pros

    The health benefits and the ability to Telecommute are big incentives at Ultimate Software.

    Cons

    In some areas the management team is not strong. Failure to lead results in poor execution on some projects. The lack of a clear career path leaves some employees struggling to understand what they can do to grow.
