I worked at ADP

Pros

good intro to sales, but absolutely no opportunity to learn their touted consultative approach when the script you are being asked to use when cold calling is: hi this is abc from ADP are you looking to change payroll providers? if yes continue if no call someone else. they invest thousands of dollars training their salesforce in consultative selling and then they turn you into a telemarketer.

Cons

see above.
Management style in many cases is absolute pressure onto sales without actually investing any time trying to improve the sales person, managers are also under a lot of pressure therefore they find it easier to run sales people to the ground and hire new ones.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

prepare a better sales strategy and apply it on all levels, and monitor sales management so that they implement these techniques.

    Pros

    Steady job, fair job security, and good learning opportunities. The company is fairly well insulated against huge downturns as recently experienced in US economy. Hard work and long hours are recognized and rewarded to the extent allowed by the company's stingy monetary policies.

    Cons

    Low comparative pay, must be a self-starter (don't expect much training). Characteristic of company's described by "best reasons", excitement in the workplace will be hard to find here. The regular grind: get more work done, make customers happy, repeat. Watch the years go by.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more risk-taking. Company is too stodgy. Which plays to both the positives and negatives. The employees, the products and the company in general is capable of more, but seems to be held back by budget and over-conservative management.

    ADP is a good place to be if you're willing to work hard.

    Pros

    ADP is a stable company that if you work hard and get the job done, you never have to worry about having your job the next day, next month, or even next year. They take care of the people who take care of the company. The expectations that management have of you aren't unreasonable and are achievable IF you're willing to work. On-site, FREE medical benefits are an awesome addition to relatively competitive salaries, and employees are even still getting bonuses, even with the current state of the economy. Management styles within the company vary, but the management in my group is very good and interested in your personal development.

    Cons

    A downside of working in a large company such as ADP is that you have limited if not non-existent opportunities for advancement to senior management levels. The raises are small compared to smaller companies, but at least you have a job. And the buildings are over-crowded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management should try to relate to the needs of lower-level front line employees.
