A positive company, but boring work

I worked at Paychex as a contractor for less than a year

Pros

They have a positive atmosphere and make a clear effort to show appreciation to their employees.

Cons

The work was boring, and there's really no way around that. I happened to be doing data entry so other positions may be better, but for what I was doing it wasn't enjoyable. The cubicle setup was very isolating and not very stimulating. I was at one of the offices in Rochester, and it felt like a big warehouse - there were no windows from the office, just a big one-story building with florescent lighting and gray cubicles.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A more collaborative environment would be helpful.

    Pros

    Stability is very much a positive!

    Cons

    Compensation is what often times makes us look elsewhere...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stabilty is great in a down economy, but as the market improves compensation may become an issue for Paychex in some areas.
