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

    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 have worked for Ceridian for almost 20 years. The consistent theme has always been great people who are passionate about doing what's right for the customer. With the acquisition of Dayforce, we became an even greater company. We now have the best technology in the marketplace that is really changing the world of work for our clients, and improving the lives of their payroll and HR administrative teams by providing significant process improvements, which leads to more efficiency and a more balanced work-week. Our leadership team has incredible vision and "walks the talk" - they are very open to feedback and more importantly, take action when things need attention. And they are very accessible - to employees and to our clients.

    Cons

    No cons of working at Ceridian. The only con in general is that the marketplace is not fully aware of our superior capabilities so we sometimes miss out on opportunities. I truly believe those companies that don't consider Ceridian are missing out on meeting their potential when they choose a competitor.

    Pros

    Excellent record over the last three years of doing what they'll say they'll do. We've seen a major technology upgrade internally. I'm very appreciative of our leadership team's willingness to invest in the technology we need to perform at a world class level. I'm excited about our ability to capitalize on the market opportunity in HCM technology today. We've got a world-class product, Dayforce HCM, that gives us a competitive edge in the marketplace. Ongoing investment in this technology, along with building the organization to implement and support our customers, gives me great reasons for optimism about the future.

    Cons

    Still too much bureaucracy that is hindering decision making needed to launch new products and processes. There seem to be too many people involved in decisions, when a key representative of a function should be empowered to make decisions knowing s/he will have the support of their function.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider creating a #1EX program - similar to the cross functional efforts to create the #1 Customer Experience, we would benefit from a team focusing on creating the #1 Employee Experience. Not just Fun@Work, but much more.

    Pros

    Engaged team supported by management. Company has transformed tremendously over the last three years from a payroll company to a leading human capital management cloud provider. Product is quite differentiated in the market and is capturing massive market share. It is really fun to be on a winning team.

    Cons

    Fast moving organization that might not be right for everyone. While hours are very flexible and really not more than 40 hours per week there is an expectation that you need to deliver. This does create some stress for people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More differentiated performance management linked closely to incentive compensation.

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

    Pros

    Dynamic shift towards people and talent. Ceridian has expanded, through Dayforce, to provide industry leading solutions and processes. This has also occurred in their HR departments, with a greater emphasis on career pathing, individual training and individual advancement. The new leadership, since the acquisition of Dayforce, has operated more like a tech company, getting faster and younger (while maintaining our history). What this does is provide a culture with an emphasis on employee engagement and interaction

    Cons

    * Still segmented internally as they adjust through their transition to SaaS model.
    * Customer service was a concern, and some effects still linger. They have, however, worked hard to resolve and improve on past missteps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue with your people focus; engaged employees are less likely to leave.

    Pros

    I like working here because everyone is focused on creating a great customer experience. The people I work with are respectful, professional, truly caring & incredibly knowledgeable. We work as a team & value each others input. (I know that sounds like a commercial, my HR team probably just put that into the mission statement - or maybe it was already there - but it's true) We are innovative, thoughtful & extremely agile. We deliver results that make a difference to our customers & to each other. I love being part of this culture. There are tons of opportunities to move into other areas of the organization as well, so I plan to be here for a very long time.

    Cons

    With the inception of Dayforce, the dark suits had to make way for the jeans & a black t-shirt crowd... A new leadership team brought in a new culture & sometimes the old & new can clash a little. We have gotten pretty good at deciphering what old stuff was actually good, but sometimes we figure it out the hard way... We get rid of something, then everyone gets mad & viola, it's back. Also, things move very fast. You have to be adaptable & willing to try something new. If you're stuck in your ways, this would not be the place for you.

    Pros

    I LOVE my job, my manager and my coworkers. I am constantly approached by recruiters from other HCM companies and I just have no interest in leaving. I've seen this company improve so much under the leadership of Stewart Harvey and David Ossip over the last few years. I have always stayed because of the people and now I can also say that I stay because of the Dayforce product, too. Our executives are the most approachable and "real" as they get. They are constantly listening and making the right improvements in the right areas.

    Cons

    Change (for the better) is happening so fast it can be hard to keep up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on the current path of valuing employees and focusing on the customer.

    Pros

    CEO doesn't just lead; he is in the trenches and involved in all aspects of the business. I do not know any companies this size where any employee can pick up the phone and call the CEO or any executive for help. The people here are amazing and everyone does their best to work together and serve our customers. There are excellent tools and resources available to do your job and help you in your personal life.

    Cons

    Typical growing pains with an organization that has achieved phenomenal rapid growth. No place is perfect, no solution is without some faults, but Ceridian works the hardest at being the best they can be for their employees and customers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Love the new value wheel and look forward to sharing it with clients. Love, love, love all the support you give to your employees.
