    Pros

    ADP has good people. The company is trying to reshape itself internally to be less segmented and more uniformed. Good benefits and training.

    Cons

    For ADP's years and experience it is late to market with competitive HR and Payroll applications. Company is now gearing up to present itself as an HCM provider.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in your core products. As an industry leader you should have the means to make the investments necessary to compete. Better technology needed for payroll products.

    Pros

    The opportunity to use a reputable company like ADP on your resume!

    Cons

    Very stressful job with below average to average pay for this industry. Also, it's hard to advance within ADP. The recruiters as well as human resources lack communication with prospective job seekers and never follow up on jobs that you interview for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your employees within the organization a chance to advance and have better communication with prospective job seekers.

    Pros

    Great awards and trips that motivate you to sell. Young professionals make up a vast majority of the work force and go out for drinks on a regular basis. Complete flexibility of your schedule.

    Cons

    Very cut-throat business environment, high turn-over, and who your manager is makes a big difference on your experience. There are corporate partnerships with banks to generate leads but a majority of the business is found through prospecting and cold calling.

    Pros

    Very stable company with strong fundamentals. Great CEO in Carlos Rodriguez.
    Market leader in Payroll and ADP is working to use that to leverage market share in other areas of HCM. Very good benefits. If you are good and lucky, you maybe able to telecommute.

    Cons

    If you are in an individual contributor role, kiss your work life balance goodbye. Average hours range from 50 - 70 hours a week, depending on which area you work or which projects you work on.
    Career growth is slow. You seldom get promoted on your own, unless you demand and ask for it, and keep asking for it. ADP is not the best paymaster around. Currently undergoing a massive re-org, but hopefully it should be a lot more stable in a few years, but I somehow doubt it. Work/Life balance is non existent as the individual contributor roles are stretched beyond max, while bloat exists aplenty in middle management. There was a great opportunity to cut down on the bloat during the current re-org, but guess where the cuts happened?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are too many layers of middle management. While executive leadership is making a lot of efforts to communicate to rank and file, the middle management is too bloated. Dollars saved in cutting down on the extensive number of VPs and Directors, can be rolled over to hire more people so that work life balance can be maintained for the existing workforce, or at least pay them better.

    Everyone 'had' to put in at least 60 hours per week as they simply had not hired enough staff to handle the load.

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

    Pros

    The company seems genuinely concerned about it work force. They want the employee to be able to learn and grow and take advantages of opportunities and openings in the organization. They offer benefits comparable to other large companies.

    Cons

    There is sometimes not enough training when you start in the company. You have to take a lot of initiative to find out what all the systems are that are used to do the job you were hired for. This makes it difficult and frustrating when trying to meet deadlines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to look at the Employee Stock Purchase Plan and how your plan compares to other organizations. You may get more participation if the price was not tied to only the ending stock price and the discount only 5%,
