    Pros

    Ceridian is a well established company that recognizes their employees' hard work like no other company I have ever been a part of. We sell an exceptional product and are run by an even more exceptional team of managers. We have unlimited resources and training at our fingertips, the benefits are top notch and we are a part of a team that truly has FUN at work. I am grateful!

    Cons

    Because of the industry and the products we sell, the knowledge required is vast. We are always learning and are kept on our toes (but those are also pros!). We have some kinks to work out as a company but we are well on our way.

    Pros

    I like the people on my team and I feel as if I am able to do everything that I need to for our clients because the ongoing training is very good and everyone helps each other to make the best customer experience for our clients.

    Cons

    There isn't really a con to working here. After working in other call centers, I am very happy here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep having open doors and valuing your employees. We are the face to the customer.

    Pros

    The transformation over the past 3 years has been nothing short of phenomenal. The company has never been stronger. Great product offering with Dayforce HCM, new leadership, & energized co-workers. A company focused on our customers. I think it's a great & fun place to work!

    Cons

    Need to spend more on marketing to increase Ceridian's visibility and the market's awareness of the New Ceridian!

    Pros

    Relationships and friendships are created. Great benefits. Good pay. Great place to learn new and marketable skills. Keeps one on ones toes. No down time. Its go-go-go from the time you walk in the front door.

    Cons

    Very bottom line-conscious company sometimes in total disregard of the human factor. But it is what it is. One bad revenue year and you're outta the door.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some empathy for the people working for you.

    Pros

    Great professionals in every department I worked with. Despite the transitions from legacy products, the leadership was professional and uplifting acknowledging they would support us to weather the changes. Fun team environment.

    Cons

    Exec team turned over every few years but that seems to have stabilized to a cohesive group.

    Pros

    Easy going atmosphere. Management is willing to listen and be involved in your work and help you succeed. Executives interact with employees on a regular basis and make us feel welcome and like we add value to the bottom line. Compared to other corporations I've been with, this is hands down THE BEST.

    Cons

    Sometimes, being a smaller company, limits opportunities for career growth. There are always chances to move to other organizations, but moving up within your own group is often difficult. There is very little movement in the Finance teams. This is obviously a good thing, too because people like it here!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Being a company that tries to be an industry leader in Human Capital Management, you would think that their own employees get to take advantage of all of the benefits that we provide our customers. If I am working for a business that sells a product, I would like to be able to understand and use all of our products.

    I have been working at Ceridian full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Really great people to work with. I've made some genuine friends which helps when the company is going through its many transitions. The transitions are sometime good and other times very stressful. The company believes in working hard but playing hard also but you are responsible for your own work-life balance. They are tools available to do that, specifically LifeWorks which is an excellent resource available to employees, their families and any one significant to the employee. I have needed to use it several times for family issues. I believe leadership really cares about employees but don't always make decisions that are in the best interest of employees. Flexible work arrangements are very attractive and help with dealing with the stress of the position.

    Cons

    1. No consistency in pay or job descriptions (company working an initiative to address this issue)
    2. Too many surprises with the pay plans - One year changes were made that directly affected upcoming paychecks and employees were not fore warned so they could budget.
    3. More value should be placed on customer service. It seems you are valued more if you're brining money into the organization. Yes, it's important to make money for the company but those behind the scenes that do a lot of the grunt work should be valued too and made to feel important & appreciated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with employees and keep the lines of communication open. Most of the employees can read between the lines based on what they see going on in the company. The preference is that we just be told what is going on and not read between the lines. I would rather be told the truth than have me spin my wheels for naught and waist my time and energy. It would be nice to have a long-term roadmap so it doesn't feel that we are always in transition.

  10. Over my 18 years with Ceridian, management and direction always seemed disoriented and reactive. Very little stability.

    Pros

    In later years, they made an effort to add fun to work and installed a lounge. Nice work environment. Good flexibility. Nice people.

    Cons

    Worked with some talented people, but never felt that management cared much for employees. High turnover means most managers "manage up" and fear of job loss drives their decisions. Senior management and headquarters moved to Dayforce in Canada and new CEO seems unqualified to run a company of this size. Cost cutting still a high priority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stabilize. Pick a product, stick with it, and properly fund it.

    Pros

    Exceptional product in HCM offering as it moves the platform to a single-record, high technology solution. Dayforce has brought a fresh view to one of the largest providers in the space.

    Cons

    There is more work than bodies to implement it which is a great problem to have. In addition, the product is growing at such a brisk pace, that as much training as possible may be beneficial.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire! Hire! Hire! To offset any impact to work/life balance, comp (and perks) should follow as well as expanded roles and responsibilities.
