The payroll experience was great but that was about it.

Senior Payroll Specialist (Former Employee)

ProsThe payroll software was pretty good and the sources of information were housed in a central location. The hours were standard and the benefits were good.

ConsManagement didn't involve the employees that much. The management was more top down. The employees were asked to make a lot of sacrifices that lowered morale. The workload was pretty heavy and the measurements used to gauge performance were based on statistics that were out of the control of the specialist.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employee's. Look for ways to help balance work loads and create more incentives to keep the employees involved.
