I have been working at ADP
Pros – Very strong leadership group with deep industry experience. However, they don't use experience as an excuse for maintaining the status quo - constantly striving to improve.
Good performance is recognized often, and those looking to grow within the organization will find many career paths are available.
Partnership, collaboration, and mind-sharing promoted in the office, which is rare in a sales environment. Tenured associates open and willing to mentor new DMs.
Compensation is in line with industry, market, and geographic standards. Clear opportunity to W-2 well into six figures in year one, and expected by year two.
Cons – This isn't a good fit for people who expect business to come from inbound leads. Major Account DMs are expected to generate appointments within their territory through partners, cold calling, prospecting, etc. The partner piece takes time to build, so to be successful in the beginning, you must be able to gain access effectively over the phone/email.
Advice to Senior Management – Continue to focus on technology and service with an eye on business process outsourcing, shared services, and global/international capability.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I have been working at ADP full-time for less than a year
Pros – Lots of windows in the office. IT support is good.
Cons – People aren't friendly. Entire office is depressed and/or hostile. Not a pleasant environment to work in.
Once you're hired, you cannot change position for the1st year. Don't go there thinking you can "get your foot in the door", and then move to something more interesting within the company.
Training is non-existent. They'll hold you accountable for things you've never been trained on, or even made aware of. They hire processors who have no experience. Senior Management (offsite) does not want their managers to know how to process payroll (not just not doing the processing, but actually not even have the knowledge). So you've got managers who don't know how to process, hiring people with no payroll experience, and no training program to teach these new associates. Asking questions is frowned upon.
I received FAR better product support from ADP as a client processing payroll, than as an employee processing payroll.
Long hours are expected to be worked. While OT pay can be nice from time to time, any prospective employee needs to be prepared to regularly work 50-60 hours per week. Having much of a life outside of work is difficult, albeit not impossible.
I came to ADP, because ADP is the best in the industry, and I wanted to work with the best. This has turned out to be a bitter disappointment. This section is staffed with sub-par personnel - far from "the best".
Advice to Senior Management – 78% employee engagement, still means 22% of your employees are unhappy. Listen to them, and actually make change, not just lip service.
