Pros

Great benefits, professional company culture, excellent sales training (Top 125 in U.S.), Work vs. life balance pretty good, great company to start sales career and move on in 1-3 years, Great reputation in the industry

Cons

Base pay for territory sales rep $38K (I started in 2011 with Paychex, made this base 9 years ago with another Fortune 500 company), Commissions can vary greatly depending upon performance, Very demanding job and huge learning curve, You have to bust your butt to make $75K (Conference level), reality is about $50-$65K (and this won't come easy the 1st year)

Advice to Management

Base pay needs to be higher to keep "true sales professionals". $38K base to start (with no negotiation for previous experience) is not acceptable. My eyes and ears are will always be open for a better offer for higher compensation. It's a no brainer. Work load vs. compensation is not comparable. More rural type territories need a higher gas mileage comp package. Let your reps sell and not have to worry so much about reporting. This is one of the main factors most reps get turned off by the job. It feels like baby sitting, instead of coaching on how to close a sale. This is all that matters! --ON A GOOD NOTE, THE SALES TRAINING PROCESS AT PAYCHEX IS UNMATCHED!

    Pros

    Great Leadership
    Management personable and accesible
    Promotes from within
    Fun environment
    Employee friendly
    Good Resume Builder

    Cons

    Heavy workload at peak times
    Lots of customer service (if you don't like that)
    First 6 months is overwhelming, but gets easier

    Advice to Management

    Great job! Work on helping people reach their goals. Equipping your employees to do their job is great, but helping them think long-term and equipping them for that, even if it's unrelated to their job, will make them give back even more as an employee.

    Pros

    Paychex has a bright future when the economy rebounds. My co-workers were great and Paychex offered good benefits.

    Cons

    Too much change for the sake of change - managers (especially those new to Paychex) should listen before they make changes.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees more and respond accordingly. Increase pay.
