I worked at Paychex full-time (More than a year)

Pros

-benefits -small base salary -learn industry -professional and supportive environment

Cons

Leaders are the best arm chair QBs I've ever seen. Their office is inconveniently located by the airport and you will be expected to go to rah rah meetings once a week. Their biggest downfall is the uncanny ability to have reps spend hours on end engaging in pointless "non revenue" generating activities. They treat their sales training like a classroom. Hours of mundane educational seminars. For anyone who understands sales you need to be spending hrs "selling" not "talking about selling".

Advice to Management

Your people are going to sink or swim. We are all real proud of the tenured folks rocking numbers but they didn't accomplish that dissecting scorps for three hours in a Monday morning meeting. Your territories are what yield a good portion of results. Fact. Don't sell your reps on team building and sunshine. Get in the field and fix your problems.

    I have been working at Paychex full-time

    Pros

    Room to move around in the company - if you are willing to move to Rochester, NY. Autonomy

    Cons

    No work life balance. Apathetic leadership. Low wage.


  2. You take the good... you take the bad

    Pros

    They have birthday cake every month

    Cons

    Everything else. A job is a job, but you got to enjoy, and get paid what you need to do the job. Not so much here
