    Transforming technology but at a high cost

    I have been working at Ceridian full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Ceridian Dayforce offers a solid blend of employees with decades of expertise with young, straight out of university employees with nonconforming, creative ideas. The CEO and senior leadership have hands on working knowledge of the Dayforce product. It's a start up mentality run business unit within a strong corporate brand.

    Cons

    Ceridian Dayforce is transforming technology but at a high cost to its integrity and employee satisfaction. Leadership consistently undermines employee expertise because senior leadership, including the CEO know better than everyone else. If you want to be a follower and are good at just doing what you've been told, this is the company for you! If you have a mind of your own and believe your expertise and opinions will add value, look for employment elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Define a solid business strategy and focus on it; is it globalization, mobile, user experience, landing page? Listen to your employees; stop yelling at them (yes, I mean actual yelling), demeaning them in front of their peers and attempting to "motivate" through belittlement. Acknowledgement of effort goes a long way in fostering an environment where people want to work.

    Former Employee - Payroll Specialist in Saint Petersburg, FL

    I worked at Ceridian full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The job paid pretty good for an entry level position. The company provides a good amount of benefits. A number of activities on campus to keep employees involved and active.

    Cons

    Not enough training. And the training doesn't prepare you good enough for the work you actually do. After about 4-5 months on the job there were things I still didn't know how to do. Knowledge base needed to do job was borderline useless. Long hours. Inability to pick desired schedule. Only given a 30 minute lunch. Not given enough help on the job. Having your phone calls timed and monitored.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more help for workers on the job. At time the managers were reluctant to provide assistance when requested leaving us to flounder.

    Pros

    Good work-life balance, great co-workers and dedicated employees and great benefits, including vacation time. Most managers very flexible with work schedule. Opportunity to work on exciting projects to advance skill set. Training provided for most positions.

    Cons

    Was a great place to work until 3 or 4 years ago. Changing of top management, who brings their friends into the company so priorities constantly change and projects are cancelled. Then another management team is brought in and the cycle starts again. Combining departments, changing management - middle managers being hired right and left with no clue how the business runs and don't know how to relate to others, either in office or remotely. No teamwork between business units. Limited advancement. No recognition in later years - not even a "thank you, job well done." Constantly driving off or laying off talented employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You had a great company then let it go. Train employees and managers how to relate to others, especially when working and managing remotely. Make decisions with information from employees, not from those who don't understand how the business works. And stop driving off your most talented employees.

    Pros

    The pay is decent but not enough

    Cons

    The company hires people not fit to work in a office, very mentally unstable individuals. Extremely poor management and corporate ethics. The software being offered as a service is defective. Lastly the training is terrible. DO NOT ACCEPT A OFFER OF EMPLOYMENT FROM THIS COMPANY.

    Pros

    I've met some interesting, smart and talented people, worked for some great managers and have learned a lot during my tenure.

    Cons

    Leadership is concentrated on the bottom line, to the detriment of the employees. They have cut back on employee benefits and perks although they try to make it appear otherwise. They will continue to lose customers and employees if they don't stop and look at the internal problems that continue to fester.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership team needs to quickly learn how to work together or else they will continue to lose valuable employees and further ruin the company's reputation.
