    Pros

    The benefits, perks, training and resources available to succeed are 2nd to none. The sales managers are highly skilled and supportive. There are many oportunites to advance either within your business unit or into other areas of the company, including international. The bottomline is if you work hard, you will succeed and be rewarded.

    Cons

    High pressure, quota driven sales culture creates high turnover. There are mutliple business units calling into your accounts which can create confusion for prospects who don't know the difference. The company has the most capabilities of any in this industry, yet they have a huge branding problem being known as "the payroll company". Let the world know what we do!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on sales numbers more than activity numbers. There are so many metrics being evaluated it sometimes seems like a job just making sure you have all your activity documented for reports to be run. We are here to sell, make it as easy as possible.

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

    Pros

    Great Training Program. Opportunities to grow within the company if you are willing to relocate. Looks great on a resume and opens up a ton of doors.

    Cons

    80% travel required. Pay is lower than competitors for sales professionals. T/heir non compete policy will lock you into looking for a completely different industry should you decide to leave. Problem is they sell such a vast amount of products to the industries they work in that your expertise in that area cannot be used in your next job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was part of a corporate buy out and after the migration of the sales team there was a mass exodus. Almost every single sales associate was looking for a new position and the handling of stock and options was not optimal and did not incentivize people to stay. Work on ways to keep the long term employees when a buyout is in place. I may have stayed had their not been so much confusion but was definitely taking a step back in both pay (roughly 20%) and position.
