    Pros

    Company has made big strides in trying to engage employees and be transparent. Have been here for 10 years and must say the last year has been very positive and I see things going in the right direction. I will say that management in different areas is totally different and has a lot to do with day to day job satisfaction. One also has to be in charge of their destiny and not rely on others.

    Cons

    Depending on area, training can be excellent to very poor. No real career path but they are trying.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep trying to work from within organization to fill positions. A lot of people here with great skills that are transferable.

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

    Pros

    Growth, new thinking and processes have made Ceridian even better over these past 4 years especially. There are a lot of people that do not realize how challenging change management is when an organization is being improved. Many changes are happening to the organization at the same time that may look chaotic, however there is a greater good involved. With the breath of fresh air in David O. there is a transition in this company that is moving fast and positively for Ceridian's future. Many other organizations go thru many pit falls during this process and Ceridian has done very well in the changes. Employees care in this company. Leaders care in this company. This is a breakout company with great technology to share in the market. If you need a challenge in a growth oriented technology driven company...check out Ceridian.

    Cons

    Internal Training can be expanded...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to improve communications with employees. Provide more opportunity for employees to obtain company shares. Give employee incentives, awards, bonuses with company shares. Ensure the 3 to 5 year plan is solid and is in the best interest of shareholders and not specific contributors. Continue to improve change management during the improvements that Ceridian will be going thru. Put money in commercials. Commercials, Commercials, tv, radio, print...do something in this area that is more outgoing! Analyze employee pay using an independent consultant. Continue working on improving the career opportunities by having a clearly defined progression thru a persons career. Continue being accessible and not think that you are the greatest thing on earth..we always appreciate that so much...please do not lose that demeanor. Consider creating a "Ceridian's Business Quotient" (CBE)...this will provide statistics to business networks (tv,radio,print) on a quarterly basis provide ratings based on stats for employee hiring, employee releases, company expansion rating, growth sectors, contracting sectors, etc...something that will allow our name to get out to the business networks that will build confidence in our brand.

    Due to the complexity of services offered, it can be a long learning curve. It's understood however that there is a long learning curve.

    Pros

    The ongoing theme at Ceridian, echoed by many, is that the "people are great" Such a pleasure to work with others who are committed to excellence and are accountable AND fun to be around.

    Having cool products in a pretty settled industry, and being part of the ongoing evolution is energizing

    Cons

    Ceridian may be an 80 year old company but its award winning flagship solution is a leader in the market because of the agility and savvy of the business leaders. If you can embrace change, it's the place for you. If you prefer to do things the same way forever (because its ALWAYS been that way) then you might want to look elsewhere

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay in touch with the "front lines" to maintain the engaged workforce while also ensuring the same message is being delivered across the company - to employees as well as customers

    I worked at Ceridian as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    A fair amount of stability for those that perform. They do offer training, benefits, etc. Nothing wildly great about it. I had a great Manager who unfortunately is no longer with the company. Their IT department had some excellent staff members willing to mentor and teach others.

    Cons

    There was very little opportunity for advancement. The focus was on keeping people happy in their current roles. While understandable that they want to keep people in their current positions, they applied this across the board so that even those with ambition and greater ability were kept in their "silo".

    Pros

    - Good salary for entry-level associates

    Cons

    - Company is undergoing constant "construction" they are fixing a lot of issues right now, that make it hard for the consultant, more work to make up for things that the system cannot currently do.
    - Stressful

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Development and Product Management need to get their job in order. It all starts there.

    Pros

    Longevity for some but others are not so fortunate regardless of level. They have good benefits medical dental and vision but a limited choice of plans.

    Cons

    Presidents, Directors, Managers at all levels and regular employees are not safe from the ax.
    Management seeking to say derogatory things about past employees to current employees whom they never met.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just worry about going public next year. Be concerned about the present and have a 5 year plan.
