    Management of Inside Sales starting at the top.. no leadership, favoritism, and not there otten

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Coworkers at or below one's paygrade were helpful and established a sense of inclusion in the team that made working the job enjoyable.

    Cons

    ADP management seems to be reluctant to recognize and deal with employee difficulties and reacts according to the level of the employee.

    Advice to Management

    Please recognize the need for work/life balance.

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers, newly remodeled building, cafeteria.

    Cons

    Poor communication skills, low pay, advancement is from department to department at the same pay level. Management is rude and not forthcoming with expectations.

    Advice to Management

    All managers within the same department should be on the same page. With the same expectations and not undermine each other at every turn. Follow through with agreed upon training and continuous support.

    Operate with Integrity.

    Pros

    Great learning enviorment. My team consisted of people that have never used any of the specific technologies that ADP uses, nor have we ever dont web dev before. By the end of the summer we had created a working internal application. Fulltime employees around us where happy to help, and overall it was a great experience.

    Cons

    Product managers that don't know how to code arent always the best idea. Scrum pretty much was just stand up meeting (however that could have been because they were less strict on us interns)

    Advice to Management

    Keep premoting a collaborative enviorment

    Pros

    Great place to work, Great benefits, Willing to train their employees as needed. ADP Dealer Services has been the best company for which I have worked.

    Cons

    Changing development methodology has lead to a mandate that all Product Managers/Owners must be collocated with their development teams. This new policy was not applied equally across the board.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure new policies are equally applied to all affected employees.

    Pros

    Very financially stable company with conservative accounting policies that go a long way to ensuring stability

    Cons

    That same conservative accounting means they respond quickly to economic pressures with layoffs. Additionally, about every 3 to 5 years, there is some sort of restructuring with job loss.

    Advice to Management

    Would love to see the walls come down from around each department, so it's less of a 'this is my territory' mentality and more of a 'how do we succeed together' environment.

    Pros

    Large company with plenty of career growth potential (even without a college education), fair pay, overall very good benefits (including: pension, 401k, stock discount purchase plan, reasonable insurance and more) and the possibility of working from home. I've been with them 2.5 years, have gotten three raises and just received a nice promotion starting 1/2014...all with no college education. One of a few Fortune 500 companies that recognizes having a formal education is not "everything."

    Cons

    Lots of management layers and they try to turn even the simplest stuff into rocket science.

    Advice to Management

    Remove some of the big corporate stuff and get back to basics...but then many people would probably lose their jobs.

    My experience was great at first, then the politics settled in and senior management turned out to be disappointment.

    Pros

    Tuition reimbursement, onsite cafeteria and fitness center.

    Cons

    Mid management is terrified of upper management. A lot of people think upper management makes poor decisions. A lot of people are fearful of their jobs.
