    I worked at ADP full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company manages based on the bottom line for profits which is good for stock holders, No one can fault them for managing for making profits

    Cons

    If you are employed by a company that is acquired by ADP, be conscious of the fact that your position (or entire department) may be at risk, as a duplication of another department within the corporation. One day (without notice) each person on your team may be called in to a conference room and told: "Your position has been eliminated", you are eligible for rehire, but that rarely happens. Good bye!. Hopefully you will be offered a severance package, and some assistance from a third party company with resume and job placement services as well.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, good growth opportunities for early and mid stage careers, improving commitment to new technology investments, strong sales and service cultures, have recently sold off non core assets to increase focus.

    Cons

    Significant senior management change underway, talk of employee engagement and client focus can be lip service, vast matrix with disconnected corporate staff often at the top, inability to coordinate resources and prioritize, intense cost cutting pressure creating significant strain on client-facing roles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management needs to reconnect with clients and front line associates. Go live a week in their shoes.

    I have been working at ADP

    Pros

    Good starting point for young professionals. Good place for those reentering the job market after being out for a while.

    Cons

    Pay can be unequal for those internally vs. those coming in externally. Company does not seem to notice that fact or care

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay better attn to workloads on your associates or you will lose some of the best people you have.

    I have been working at ADP full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, employee discounts and friendly people. Technology within ADP is pretty good; they offer nice laptops for employees, should your position require one.

    Cons

    Lacking in innovation. Sometimes coworkers can be difficult to work with because they want to stand out so much. Depending on the office location, you will not find many forward/creative thinkers. Management structured is a bit skewed and unorganized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on the workers you manage. Identify innovative thinkers more and let them speak up more often. Identify those individuals and give them praise. Try to create a better work-life balance.

    Great Company, Awesome Opportunities, Stress Overload

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at ADP full-time

    Pros

    You can transfer between divisions, keep your tenure, but it's like working for another company. Different divisions operate differently and have different expectations for their teams.

    Cons

    Stress overload in implementation. You're in meetings all day and then expected to have deliverables by end of day. Expectation is to work until it's done, which unfortunately sacrifices your personal time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. You're losing key employees that can make the same money elsewhere and still have a personal life.

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

    Pros

    There is freedom in the role being that it is outside sales, with the exception of the mandatory weekly meetings and/or call blocks. If surrounded by the right group of people and right leadership, working at ADP can be incredibly fruitful and lucrative.

    Cons

    The office has very little support, loyalty, and most importantly, culture. Among the Small Business Division, there are a couple SEs that really know what they're doing, but ultimately, being placed with one of them is all up to chance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the leaders you have that are willing to fight for their team and start promoting them to improve the retention rate and office culture.
