    Pros

    So my one word review of this company pretty much sums it up. I worked here for 4 years in their totalsource division.

    Cons

    One of the worst managed organizations I have ever worked for! I spent a few years at trinet which is another peo prior to going to adp and I thought that was bad. the folks at adp couldn't care less about their employees. all they care about is metrics. not necessarily how much you sold, but what your appointment totals were for the week. I was successful there making three presidents clubs and was treated like an underperforming rookie. The worst of it all was the reduction in commissions year after year and the bs spin that the totalsource management tried to put on it. I was told $300k was pretty common, but as one of the top performers and making club, I cleared in the $90k's. so they just plain lie.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    why bother - so corporate they don't care.

    The Innovation Lab is a joke

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Your close to the google office so you can jump out on interviews without anyone noticing.

    Cons

    This is the embodiment of how to do things wrong in tech. Nothing more than a cargo cult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Completely incompetent. Go back to school or perhaps consider a new career.

    Pros

    Top management is really good. Long term vision and try to provide good work environment

    Cons

    Management team like Project leaders, managers, senior managers suck.
    Lot of politics
    Unfair treatment of employees
    Employees are exploited mentally
    They say ADP is home away from home. I say, hell very near to hell
    Some managers even try to manipulate you feeling that you are their servant and less than that
    they keep bugging you like bed bugs on work and policies, just to make sure that you dont counter question them. They will throw you in inferiority complex
    If you work more than an year in this company, rest assured, your technical knowledge will be zeroed down. Legacy technologies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value the employee. Just polices and big talks are not suffice
    There are many guys who are in management just because they put on some years to their career. Get rid of them. They are poison.

    My advice to management that other areas of the company do contribute to the ADP.
