    I have been working at ADP full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    ADP is a solid organization Work/Life balance - getting to work from home. Team culture is enabled.

    Cons

    Salary is low compared to competitors consulting positions. Also, it is very hard to advance into higher roles as it seems tenured employees trump newly hired outside experience. Advancement in the form of stretch assignments is how they operate vs. asking what YOUR professional goals are. You must work hard, pay your dues in time and proving yourself first, then you can ask for advancement. The Sales and Sales Support areas in the organization are very political. It's best to know who and when you can go to for advice. Everyone talks!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a collaborative and transformational leaders. The approach is very directive and authoritarian. It is a sales environment, however to retain employee assets its important to ask your teams "what their professional goals are" vs. assume they want to grow internally in that unit. Help guide them into building skillset and roles that fit their future vision.

    Pros

    You will work with very smart people who are specialists in their areas. A very stable company with lots of opportunities to learn and grow if have the right boss.

    Cons

    Innovation is an alien concept to ADP. They never had to compete for Business. Too many antiquated processes and no investment in people or technology. The management has just been milking the cash cow but never bothered to invest in its people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to work in a competitive marketplace.

    Pros

    Great health benefits, 401k company match program, pension, stocks, training available online/instructor led for personal growth, 4 weeks paid vacation, reasonable pay, fun work environment, and opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    Client focus is no longer a priority. The company is moving towards conducting most/all of their business off shore (India, China, and Philippines), which is eliminating several positions available across the USA.
    *Client Account Management = Philippines * IT = India * Production Teams = India/China

    I worked at ADP full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Reputation of the company is second to none. During my eleven years of employment I had nothing bad to say about the company. Educational opportunity is high on their agenda and always encourage associates to take advantage of the resources available.

    Cons

    The company took their eyes off the ball and during the 2008/2009 financial meltdown, it became obvious that keeping the double digit growth was not feasible and thus layoffs became common to meet their growth projections.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Before promoting staffs to management positions, the top management should make sure that person is qualified for the position. Some of the managers are not familiar with the products they are suppose to manage.

    Pros

    It was a family environment and you wanted to do your best for yourself and your co-workers and your bosses.

    Cons

    Associates are now only a number on a piece paper, it's all about the numbers. Many "seasoned" employees were laid off, associates now are overworked and are in fear of being laid off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciation shown to associates, it's not always about the money.

    Pros

    I love the work/life balance at ADP. Training is also good. I've been lucky to work with great teams and great managers. They offer great PTO benefits especially working for more than 5 years.

    Cons

    Can be stressful at times. The pay could be a little bit better for the amount of work we do.
