    I have been working at ADP full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are still very good, company is solid, and you have job security if you are willing to work the increasingly hours, and do whatever they ask, as long the job is not out-sourced. There are still many good people working there that still have the old ADP culture of collaboration and respect for associates' personal time (but they are fewer every day).

    Cons

    ADP has abandoned its old mantra of employee empowerment. It is now all about "the process" no matter how much unreasonable amount of work, and unproductive work at that, it adds. It has become an old-style, top-down management style company, as it struggles to push salaried people to work as many hours as possible, but still pretending to care about work-life balance. Mid-level managers are regularly caught demanding deliverables at impossible times for no other reason than just to check them of their list - not because anyone else actually needs them. What their demands do to other people is of no concern to them. More and more people are jumping ship without jobs waiting for them. If I don't find a job soon elsewhere, I will be one of them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no advice to offer. The top executives are getting what they want: a bold extraction of every bit of work possible from front line and mid-level salaried employees until they can out-source their positions to India and the Philippines.

    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.

    I have been working at ADP full-time (more than 10 years)

    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

    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.
