I have been working at Paychex full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Good benefits, room to grow if in the Rochester Area,

Cons

Management needs to be trained, senior management is great, but they really don't help with day to day things. Average supervisor/managers are just that... average. It's all about who you know.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop moving people up based on your friendship status with them

    Pros

    The experience at Paychex truly is what you make it. The benefits and pay are slightly less than competitive, but the opportunities to advance internally are myriad. Take advantage of the training and professional development and you'll succeed.

    Cons

    The culture is old-blood corporate, and the technology is generally playing catch up. But as of this writing (3/13) things appear to be changing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accept change; look for new ideas; fail fast, and often, but learn and improve with each failure.

    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.
