I worked at Paychex full-time

Pros

Benefits, fellow co-workers, potlucks, health initiative

Cons

People don't leave organizations they leave people; and that is certainly true at Paychex. If you're lucky enough to work for a talented and professional supervisor your employment there will be rewarding. if not, your time there will be stressful and emotionally taxing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't forget about the "rank and file" who are in the trenches doing the work and conversing with the clients. They are the most valuable "client" of all.

    I worked at Paychex full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay and commission strategy. Great benefits, they treat salespeople who are meeting quota and above extremely well, great training opportunity in New York.

    Cons

    For training, you will be required to stay for 2 weeks and then go back for a third week. The first time you'll be given your own room, but the second stay you'll have a roommate. Churn and burn company in the sales division. Quota is high and tough.

    I have been working at Paychex as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    As a contractor I am not saddled with long hours or the stress of caring if the company is going in the right direction, which greatly supports my work/life balance!

    Cons

    The software development and test teams I am part of consist of well over half of the team members being contractors. The contractor rates are low, and the quality people work hard to move on to better paying positions while the mediocre or less qualified people keep hanging on. There is little motivation to perform at high levels since there is no room for advancement or pay increase, and little likelihood of a direct position in the current environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adding more and more contractors will not increase the speed of project completion. Focus on hiring qualified people and supplementing with contractors when needed. The culture is starting to suffer and all the cheap help in the world won't help you fix that.
