    Pros

    The company cares about its employees & clients. The atmosphere is innovative and the executive leadership team is committed to excellence in every area. Leadership also encourages open communication (transparency) which is refreshing in today's corporate environment. The majority of staff are committed, caring people. The company culture is the best I've experienced in my 23 year sales career.

    Cons

    As a virtual employee, the challenge for me is often figuring out which office or resource to contact when I need support, direction or service information.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the wonderful company culture and continue to hire staff to support the tremendous growth we are experiencing.

    Pros

    I had the opportunity to work with a few brilliant people.

    Cons

    There was a lot to be desired when it came to project organization. The product itself was sub-par; it had some interesting utility, but often times, the product was glitchy and would break as new hot fixes or new versions were rolled out.

    I have been working at Ceridian full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Ceridian has the name recognition and history in the industry, having been in business over 80 years. In the past 3-5 years, they have completely reshaped organization with the development of Dayforce. Ceridian operates in a blend of a start-up feel with the backing of a global organization. The company cultured has changed for the better, allowing direct access to senior leadership. There is transparency in decision making, and they have worked to develop programs internally to aid in advancement, development and greater culture. Examples of programs: * Mentorship Opportunities with Leaders * Volunteer Days for Staff * Fun at Work Program * Year End Award Trips (Barcelona, Costa Rica, Maui in 2016) * Cross training and Career Training

    Cons

    With the historical pieces of the organization still in existence, there are still areas in the organization that are silo-ed due to the structure that existed from past years. While they work to include these, they mainly align to aged or legacy product types.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the good work!

    I have been working at Ceridian full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great product overall - Dayforce is becoming more streamlined and "cool" with each release. Starting to become who they want to be when they grow up. Sr Leaders are technology savvy and are staying ahead of the curve on market trends. Smart people finding creative ways to get product to market quickly.

    Cons

    Growing pains. Backlog. ZERO work life balance in certain areas of the company. The workloads are absolutely overwhelming, with more being asked each day. Top talent is leaving left and right due to burn out. Sr Leaders are very focused on making numbers and it is rolling downhill in a negative way. Department managers and directors have little authority to protect their people from this, as they have to make department numbers as well. Creative ideas have been tried, but the volume is not sustainable.

    Advice to Management

    You have to stop the bleeding. You have really smart people leaving with years of expertise, and managers and directors who have done all they can to support and back your play. Find a balance so that you don't kill your people.

    I have been working at Ceridian full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company and benefits. Colleagues will go out of your way to assist you if you need help. I work with a great team that is understanding and accommodating to work/life balance. I love the team-building activities and could not ask for a better boss. It is fun learning about the HR/Payroll industry including their award winning Dayforce.

    Cons

    Need to have a better definition of sales territory and management needs to be more aggressive when it comes to assigning them to the right person to get the Job done.

    Advice to Management

    Need to listen more to employee suggestions. Also need to get aggressive in hiring more outside reps to cover territory. In my several months here Ceridian has made a 180 degree turn in becoming one of the best companies to work for in America! Take these suggestions in account and we will do great!
