Best Benefits Around!

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Ultimate Software full-time for more than 3 years

ProsBest 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.

ConsCompany 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!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

A great company that cares for its employees

Technical Consultant (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I have been working at Ultimate Software as an intern for less than a year

ProsThe 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.

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

Advice to Senior ManagementGreat work!

Great place to work

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Ultimate Software as an intern

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

ConsSouth 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.

USG Review

Product Strategist (Current Employee)
Weston, FL

I have been working at Ultimate Software full-time

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

ConsIn 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.

Career Growth Opportunities

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I have been working at Ultimate Software

ProsGreat benefits, interesting work, mid-sized company with small company feel. Continuously improving the customer and employee experience. There is a great deal of career growth potential.

ConsGrowth has been too rapid, leaving us scrambling to define new processes. Middle management disconnect in support departments, they live outside "the bubble".

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your lower level employees. Remeber the company philosophy of keeping employees happy first so that everything else will follow. Managers new to the company forget that all too often.

Great Place to Work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Weston, FL

I have been working at Ultimate Software

ProsThey actually take the time to care about employees. I've had other jobs where I would rather chew off my arm than work on the weekend. At Ultimate, it didn't really bother me. (Even if it meant coming in at 6am). They reward you if you go out of your way for them. Working long hours? We've had lunch and dinner provided for us.

ConsThere aren't any real cons. You will have to work and be accountable for your mistakes, but that should be expected at any job.

Advice to Senior ManagementReview the part time employees for full time positions.
