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

Pros

Great training, good team environment and team builders. I was lucky to work on a great team with a fantastic manager, it made it tough to leave. You can work from home once you've proven yourself, but will need to come in Monday mornings and Fridays.

Cons

Stress stress stress. Zone manager hears it from his highers ups when he doesn't hit his numbers, your manager hears it from him and you'll hear it from your manager.You need to work really hard and build up for a few years...but in reality the hard work never stops. Appointment quotas, if you don't reach your appt quota you're dialing at 8am Friday morning. You'll see a daily email of your sold/submitted along with everyone else in your zone.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You guys were good to me throughout my whole tenure. I don't blame management for the stress, it's just how Paychex is built. I realized that I could make more money busting my behind at another job.

    Pros

    They care about their employees and they care about their customers. Great benefits, no layoffs, no arbitrary changes every other week. Stable, consistant professional work environment.

    Cons

    Salary and commission structure is causing massive turnover in the sales divisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce turnover of the top 50%-30% of your sales force by matching the compensation of Paychex's main competitors.
