Pros

Great people and culture, decent benefits.

    Former Employee - Client Services Representative (Advocate) in Saint Petersburg, FL
    Former Employee - Client Services Representative (Advocate) in Saint Petersburg, FL

    I worked at Ceridian full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    worked with some dedicated people although few remain
    used to be managers had domain knowledge not the case now iy id important in this case

    Cons

    company adjusting to marketplace
    changing profile of services offered
    company almost schizofrentic in how to work with clients - direction of take responsibility solve client problem be an advicte - changed not viable unless client generates enough profit - cut in personnel to handle smaller clients (numericl bulk of clients and problems) direction changes to advise client and manage expectations and take blame for it that's the job
    too cost cutting focused - not recognising hidden costs
    last 4 years middle managment has swollen and shruk with non domain knowledgable specialist, when each was announced as coming on board you could literally expect reductions in staff to make up the salary
    company long term plan was workforce reduction - for cost reduction
    made it very difficult to argue with the fact that inevitablly, you would not be there
    also made it tough to do the work of more and more of the people that had been laid off
    last year (of four) spent trying to justify to complaigning clients about the adjustment of service being handled overseas and the decline in quality due to circumstance
    company makes a come back by bring in new services to this facility from their NC location, only at the cost of down sizing there and not relocating any workers
    downsized people here not given a chance to positon into new position as they had to stay active in their current positions while new openings had to be filled
    day I was laid off, along with 45 others was hastened so company could benefit form insentive of new job creation (even though it was overseas)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    will see if this bottom line cost cutting is worth while,

    Pros

    Nice people, but not always treated well by managers

    Cons

    Uncertainty of the future makes place uncomfortable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cutting cost is a nasty necessity. Best to always pay your best people well.
