    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

    Great work-life balance. Promote within culture. 2 promotions in 30 months. Great benefits. Generous 120 hours of PDO from day one. Strong values that actually matter. Flat management structure - between one of the first line people who report to me and the CEO is three managers.

    Cons

    Compensation is mid-industry. Not at the top and not at the bottom.

    Pros

    Great health benefits, time off, culture and products. Have started to invest in career path creation for young employees but are still years behind the competition.

    Cons

    Salary and commission plans aren't good at Ceridian unless you're a large market or Account Management. Company seems to invest in those individuals. Customer service is really terrible. Ceridian Products are good, but are way overpriced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The SMB-Mid Market's contain the largest opportunity to sell deals in the US then any other space. Invest ($) into these representatives salary/commissions or they will gladly leave to a competitor to sell an inferior product and make way more money.

    Former Employee - Payroll Specialist in Saint Petersburg, FL

    I worked at Ceridian full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good salary for contractors, happy employees, strangers actually speak to each other in break room (WOW!), good salary for contractors, free food and activities almost all the time, great management, good team leads, not boring at all, a very changing environment, ongoing education is constant. Great call center in that your customers are almost 100% always professional HR/Payroll staff. So you're not speaking with folks off the street (a dread of any call center). Center closes at 8PM EST. Not a 24/7 call center.

    Cons

    The training could use improvement (but there is only so much one can learn in class). Much is learned on the floor when put on the phones.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My experience as contractor working at Ceridian St. Pete FL was wonderful.

    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.

    I have been working at Ceridian

    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.
