    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

    - Large stable company yet operating like a startup
    - Huge growth in cloud
    - New and exciting challenges everyday
    - Transformed to a leader in its industry in just a few short years
    - Open and transparent
    If helping to transform this company from a stale service provider to a leader in cloud software is my biggest career achievement, then I can look back at my career and feel proud, rewarded, and accomplished.

    Cons

    This is not necessarily a con... but I think that every employee needs to take control of his/her career. Everyone I speak/interact with is honest and genuine. I encourage all my colleagues to talk to their managers on a regular basis. We are very busy and growing like crazy, and I know sometimes it seems hard to take the time to have these conversations, but in my experience, it is really easy to do so. Just ask.

    Advice to Management

    - Continue honest conversations.
    - Zero in on cloud growth
    - More stock options to get employees vested in our success

    Pros

    If I could describe Ceridian in one word it would be "Transperency.” With technology changing rapidly it is important to always know where your organization is headed and I always feel connected to what our leadership team is planning both short and long term. Dayforce HCM is the most amazing system I have ever worked in for HR and as a solutions consultant being able to demonstrate it to clients and future clients is rewarding and fun. An amazing leadership team, an awesome product, and loyal clients makes this the best company I have ever worked for.

    Cons

    No cons at this time.

    Advice to Management

    Our management team does a fantastic job communicating the strategic goals of the organization.

    Pros

    Work-life Balance and Benefits are good. Management is very open to new ideas and improvements. Ceridian has become much better at recognizing top talent internally and creating a career path. Co-Workers are the best. Ceridian has a lot of talent and dedicated people working for them.

    Cons

    Communications between different departments are lacking significantly and you can get the feeling that people are not pulling in the same direction but are working against you. This can make things very frustrating!
    Change is constant
    Compensation may not always be the best

    Advice to Management

    A lot of good things have happened for Ceridian over the last 3 years. Continue to work on transparency and employee engagement.

    Pros

    Strong team members. The hiring standards are high, which gives me extra confidence that everyone is not only capable, but they are also good to work with and (generally) fit within the team and work culture very well.

    Strong compensation and average benefits (including things like team lunches, Peer recognition & rewards, and Fun@Work).

    Managers who care about you, as a person. I directly contribute to the companies success - but I'm not just another "cog".

    Cons

    Health Benefits are average, which is not exactly good - but they aren't horrible either.

    This is not a con for me, but could be for some: it is an Agile work environment with projects that never end. We are always pushing forward and extending the product and technology backing it.

    Occasional stretches of crunch.

    Advice to Management

    Don't stop caring about us. We noticed it and appreciate it!

    Pros

    Well, the campus is pretty. Not that this makes a significant diff. in one's current or future life.
    Anyway, I'm middle-aged now, and have worked for 6 companies in my life. Thanks to some of them working out well, I'm a multi-millionaire now. Ceridian was not one of the best; it was fair. And this reflected in the ownership (they get the profits), and the resultant filtering down... you employees get a little, and each hour that you work, each dollar in revenue that you create, has a portion given to the owners. Like that? If you're satisfied with this, then you belong. Lord help you when you turn 66. If not, then consider a co. with serious benefits. Please.

    Cons

    see the 'pros' in my write-up. With Ceridian you can sustanin a lower-middle or middle-class lifestyle, making others rich, and you'll never be that. The management of the co. reflects this, by the way. It's mediocre. We used to say, as a division of Ceridian's Military OneSource, it's a 'March to Mediocrity'.

    Advice to Management

    sell, be average, or die

    Pros

    I've been able to apply my education to real world technical items.

    Cons

    My nearly 50 mile commute to the office has been a challenge at times.

    Advice to Management

    Continue allowing subordinates to provide input regarding changes that will impact their day to day activities.
