    I worked at ADP full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    High compensation for star performers, including stock, bonus, amazing President's Club trips. Tremendous upward mobility within the organization. Great management for sales teams.

    Cons

    Fairly low base salary but competitive to other large public companies. Monthly quota for sales became ridiculous and was actually cut back because no one could achieve the increased load.

    I have been working at ADP full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Excellent company for training and travel if you enjoy being on the road.

    Cons

    Leadership had some good points, but overall the upper management were condescending and so focused on the bottom line that your opinions and your personal life always took a back seat to their needs. I guess to be expected in a publicly traded company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize you are only as good as the people you have working for you and since we do 80% of the work, you need to listen better and provide support which will ensure your employees stay on the job longer than they are today. Too much turnover is not good for any company.

    Current Employee - App Tier Administration in Alpharetta, GA

    I have been working at ADP as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The company has a great and diverse atmosphere. Despite my title as an "Intern", I was treated with the same level of respect that an employee with tenure is given. My supervisor was very approachable and and I was often given meaning work which made my experience a great practical learning experience. They also had many "Talk with a Leader" sessions which had the company's higher ups talk about their past experiences and giving advice on anything from life to navigating Corporate America.

    Cons

    As with any large global companies, your team is split between various locations which means you have to have phone/web meetings to accommodate for the various timezones. The meetings really get tiring after a while.

    Pros

    Opportunities to learn. Opportunities to interact with other companies

    Cons

    Fortune 500 company. At times, a 'learn as you go' environment. Sell it, then support it.

    Current Employee - District Sales Manager National Accounts Services in Los Angeles, CA

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

    Pros

    The people! Our technology has finally caught up and is surpassing that of many thought of as leaders in that area. Coupled with the process support (tax,pay,benefits admin,FSA,cobra,401k,screening,tax incentives) surrounding the technology I think ADP has a VERY promising future and the most complete, unified service/solution offering in the market; by far. Finally!

    Cons

    ADP is very focused on shareholder return and I think sometimes we suffer from a lack of resources because of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue w the Innovation. Keep the business consultants taken care of compensation wise

    I have been working at ADP full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    ADP has many leaders with diverse backgrounds and experience that are always willing to integrate new solutions into the overall strategy. There is a lot of career growth internally in tech, sales, service, and HR. You have the ability to get to know and learn from leadership online and offline. In some roles, you can work from home.

    Cons

    If you are not ethical and live the company's values, you will not last long at ADP. It is important to have the ability to build relationships that drive results. We are starting to build the infrastructure to truly be "One ADP" on a global scales vs. being U.S. centric.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to be proactive with teams and sharing our strategy on a global scale - the town halls and internal communication channels are very valuable.

    I worked at ADP as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Excellent company. A lot of room for growth. Great benefits and excellent pay. Good training program.

    Cons

    There's nothing challenging about ADP. The Benefits Representative and Enrollment Specialist positions are has potential growth and advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Licensed Life, Health and Accident Insurance Agents performs many for the same duties as ADP's Benefits Representative and Enrollment Specialists . With so many companies using Enrollment Companies to enroll their employees into their core benefits, ADP should consider hiring Licensed Life, Health and Accident Agents who is seeking long-term employment.
