I have been working at Paychex full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Steady check from a company that isnt going to fold tomorrow. Consistent gig while you go to night school to get a better job.

Cons

technical work with minimal training. Horrid software that fails and the employee gets blamed. Incredibly poor mid and lower management!!!!! Promotion goes to whom the mid level manager likes and not to who is best qualified.... the stories I could tell about inept supervisors and managers. Terribly low pay for the work required. The fun comes when you are paying employees for other companies making twice what you do and you know they are doing less than half the work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Develop a team between operations and NY. This is a truly antagonistic relationship that will be the major cause of your down fall.

I honestly believe, even though the financials appear different, that this company will have a major restructure in the next 5 years or will fail. Payroll is not handled by companies in the "same old way" and if you dont catch up with technology and quality you will be in the same boat as Sears.

I left the company to take over as the bookkeeper/payroll/ HR/ accountant for a small company. I certainly wouldnt allow my new company to become a client of Paychex and this new job with less than half the stress pays twice as much.

    I have been working at Paychex full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Solid company that rarely if ever lays off employees, and continues to stay stable if not grow. Company has no debt, so they look to remain solid for many years to come.

    Cons

    Atmosphere can be tense, with agressive deadlines and constant changes due to tax laws, etc. Little encouragement for employees to mingle outside of work time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engage in more team-building and/or group gatherings to promote cooperation between groups.
