Pros

Flexible schedule from time to time. There is also a pretty thorough training proccess. There aren't very many more perks to be honest.

Cons

Heavy Client Load (91 clients)... Over-worked and Under paid. No real advancement opportunities. High turnover rate. Its hard to help clients at a "top service" level because the client load is so heavy. You spend most of your time putting out fires. Also the communication between other service departments under the paychex umbrella is quite poor. The HR Generalist is left to pick up the pieces with decision makers and business owners who are often dissatisfied with the service.

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO
