    Pros

    Great atmosphere. I have really enjoyed the goal structure and the many rewards offered to sales associates. Great place to build wealth.

    Cons

    Many many ups and downs to deal with. The first year is very tough. If you do well you are highly looked at obviously. If you do bad it's almost like you're not a good person. ???

    I have been working at ADP full-time

    Pros

    This is a great place to start your sales career. It's a fun environment and teaches you the necessities of a real sales person. Great exposure to B2B Sales. Network with tons of professionals and a lot of non professionals, which gives you a good balance of how to manage yourself and your business. You truly have your success in your own hands. The people who actually put their head down and get the job done get rewarded...The people who don't, weed themselves out.

    Benefits are great and start at day 1
    401k is top of the line

    Cons

    Difficult to take time off because you're performance is based on your number but they don't stop you from taking your PTO. Management is understanding.

    "a lot of opportunity for growth" - The ladder is tall at ADP but the steps are few and far between. It's difficult to move up in the company because there's a lot of people ahead of you.

    The pay is great for what it is...a entry level sales job. Can you make a career of it? Of course but after a few years, you can make a lot more money elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to have a better mindset of growing their people from within and not keeping them there because they're good for the number.

    I worked at ADP full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of room to grow as long as you've been in your position for at least 1 year. High leadership standards. Nice logo for your CV.

    Cons

    Some business units are small and have a fraction of the resources as larger business units - so this means that some business units have awesome employee development programs and perks - while other s do not. Leadership quality varies form business unit to business unit. Expensive but comprehensive benefits. Pay is average at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the long-term - invest more in people.

    Pros

    Work at own pace, make as much as you deserve. Great benefits and training. Have to go to NJ twice in first year for training. Lots of opportunity for and advancement. Overall a great place to work if you can sell, if not your paycheck will reflect it.

    Cons

    Lots of driving and gas

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great management really works hard to train employees and prepare them to sell.

    Pros

    Stable company with some good people. Great training opportunities that you can take anywhere.

    Cons

    COS does not provide work life balance. If you have children it would be best if you did not accept a position here. You have to there on time and leave late. There is an occurrence policy that is supposed to hold repeat offenders accountable but instead drives the A players away. They hire people with no payroll experience to process high level payrolls for large Fortune 500 companies and expect accuracy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because a manager can do a PowerPoint presentation does not mean they can manage people. Pay attention to high turnover that happens under soecific managers and have skip level meetings.
